The first time I ever bought this beer I drank it out of a 12oz. bottle while bowling.

Needless to say my scores went from an easy 200 to about 80 during the course of this six-pack

When you first pour this beer you are grasped by the quintessential Tripel appearance and aroma. This beer has a smell of its own. On the front you smell a lot of soft fruit such as overly ripened banana and other over ripe exotic fruit. The nose is then dominated by the booze of this beer which should NOT be underestimated; I am speaking from experience here.

If your not an avid tripel drinker this beer will throw you for a loop. It comes across rather boldly with strong notes of banana and sweet green apple, which is then replaced with a slight mango and other exotic fruit flavor mostly from the malts. This is all happening while you are being showered by the lovely boozy flavor. This beer may hold one of my top 10 after-tastes of all time; coming clean with the fresh fruit flavors.

The mouthfeel of this beer is simply delightful with an elegant note of effervescence and a slightly rich and creamy feel, but not to coat your tongue.

On a whole this beer can be appreciated even by the fledgling craft lover. I have seen it with my own eyes as we have this beer on tap in my store (Along with several other Weyerbachers at the moment!!)

If you haven't tried this beer you should go out of your way to find 2 bombers of it. One to drink right away and get a solid buzz on, and one to Cellar for up to 6 months. The comparison is indescribable.

Poured from growler into pint glass.

Pours pale golden color with a small white head. Smells very fruity and yeasty that carries into the taste as well. Slight alcohol flavor. Highly carbonated, the mouthfeel is wonderful, very creamy. Long lasting but very subtle hoppyness. A very well done tripel.

Just filled my growler a couple hours ago, pouring into a tulip.

A: Cloudy as could be with an illuminating orange color that looks very inviting. Rich, dense creamy white head that does not fade.

S: Typical Belgian Tripel aroma, spicy, banana, undertones of bubblegum.

T: Yummy:) Dominant banana taste with a Belgian yeast backbone that is not over the top. Gummy banana feel lingers through out and comes back up after the swallow. A distinct creaminess warms up the pallet as the beer hits the back of the throat.

M: Very dry bitterness from start to finish, almost burns the pallet. After the bitterness goes away, and your pallet gets use to it, the beer is warm as could be making one want more, like most Tripels (must be the candy sugar).

O: Bad ass beer, great name, I am definitely in a merry mood. Weyerbacher does not disappoint. I had Verboten (Belgian Pale Ale) before which would be the little brother to Merry Monk and was satisfied but this takes the brewery to a whole other level. Glad I was able to sip on this one!

Troeg's swingtop growler (very, very full pour) into its proper Weyerbacher tulip.

A: Looks a bit flat in the growler (no bubbles appear upon breaking the seal), and a fairly hard pour is required to produce nearly an inch of fine white head atop a hazy gold body. While there doesn't appear to be much carbonation rising up to maintain the head, retention is still pretty strong, and as the foam recedes it leaves a few clumps of lace around the sides. Solid-looking tripel except for the low carbonation.

S: Pure Belgian yeast aroma, with somewhat more fruit (banana and apple) than spice (although there's a fair dose of clove). Some sweet alcohol toward the tail end. Smells like it could be a bit harsh, but definitely a dynamic tripel.

T: Starts out with the nice yeasty flavors from the nose, but quickly shifts toward dominating, cloying booze. There's a bit of bready malt, but the alcohol really takes over the majority of this beer; that said, the booze notes are sweet and slightly fruity, but they're still pretty harsh. Taking smaller sips shifts the harshness more onto the finish, but also eliminates any chance to savor the complexity of the yeast. This beer is simply unbalanced.

M: Definitely an unexpected bonus after seeing how flat this beer looked in the growler, on the palate it comes alive with a mouthfilling explosion of velvety carbonation that helps clean out the stickiness of the alcohol just a bit.

D: I'm taking the rest of the growler over to a friend's place, and I'm counting on others to finish it. One tulip will be plenty for me - it's one of the most oppressively boozy beers I've had, which is a huge disappointment considering it's under 10%.

Notes: I don't know if this would mellow with age or what, but those monks appear to have been too merry to have balanced out the heat of their beer. I don't mind a bit of booze on the finish of a tripel, but this one was really over the top - both from this growler and when I had a corked 750 about a year ago. I liked the sample taste I had at the brewery, but now I'm wishing I'd gotten a growler of Old Heathen instead.

A random selection from the store this evening and I was greatly surprised. As soon as I opened the bottle the fragrance was amazing very fruity (not perfume like , as someone else reviewed). Great Blond color, and nice lacing from the head. And deeeelicious with the first mouthful. Refreshing, full of flavor, a very well crafted beer. Well done Weyerbacker!

I have been on a Belgian beer kick for a while now, so this fit in well. It may have also lowered the score as I've had some great ones recently.

I had it on-tap in a tulip glass. Nice pale yellow color with a strong head.

The taste was very present bananas and went down smooth for the high abv. As it warmed some, the alcohol taste did come through more, however.

Light body and mouthfeel.

This is a beer that could get you into some trouble on a lazy summer day. One moment you feel great, 3 beers later you're in the neighbors backyard getting tasered.

Merry monks pours a bright golden color and is quite clear. A bright white head sits on top. The head is very tall and somewhat dense. As it fades away some lace webing is left behind.
Very light carbs.

The aroma is yeasty phenolic and alcohol. There is a slight perfume aroma form the alcohol.

The taste is malty and yeasty. Yeasty phenols give the beer a fruity taste. But all is dominated by a huge alcohol taste.
I don't much care for this one.

1 pt 9.4 fl oz bomber from CM poured into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy orange with a one finger head. Decent retention.

S - Bready grains, banana, clove, candied sugar

T - more of the same, with a smattering of alcohol heat, and touches of a mild fruit juice/apple cider. The sugar sweetness becomes more prevalent as beer comes to temp.

M- fairly sharp in carbonation, but mellows as it warms. Dry finish.

O - A solid tripel. Been drinking a large amount IPAs lately (including my first HT on a trip to Northeast) so this was good balance to that. Recommended.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Want to like because I love this east coast brewery's Imp Stout. Top rated.
So I came back after a bad first bottle and upped my review on a 2nd

A: Good looking pinpoint head and cloudy body. Avg retention and lacing. (not like a Belgian)

S: Smell is the best part. Lots of pear and orchard fruit with some overripe banana and lots of spice—cloves and coriander. Some bread and cracker with pepper too.

T: Follows the orchard smell: Apples, pears, bananas, bits of peach and plum. Peppery and clove offset the sweetness, but a bit too sweet. No real hop tingle or yeast earthiness. (balance is missing... too perfumey and sweet.)

M: Medium bodied, not enough tingle, definitely "Face Warming" as one review wrote.

O: I immediately went for strong cheeses to off set this one, like a dense huntsman, gouda, or comte. Enjoyed it with cheese and you will too as an AFTER DINNER, LATE NIGHT SIPPER.

this tripel failed the 1st time for me. a 3.2

A: Bottle poured into pint glass left a wide bubble, quick failing head with no lacing. A second aggressive pour resulted in a short lived head. The body looks like unfiltered apple cider off the press. Lots of particulate, that apple press color.

S: More medicinal than any good trip. The alcohol, sugars, sweetness overwhelms, along with too much clove. Industrial, not organic. Fail.

T: Stale apple and banana black peel. then lots of clove and cookie dough, the alcohol dominates from thence on, resulting in the sweet sugary, bubble gum, candy rack finish. A bit cloying and too much alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Heavy, cloying, coating. Not inviting, not appetiizing. Had to try some Robusto cheese, but gave up. Not a food beer. Too high ABV and sugar results in sticky mouth finish.

Overall: A remake please! It's over the map; aggressive, boozy character, way too much sweetness and zero yeasty complexity or mystery. Unsubtle.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass

Head was light and white.

Color seems a little on the dark side for a triple but is a pleasant Amber color.

Aroma has yeast and fruit notes. Fruits notes seem to be of orange and apricots.

Flavor is similar to aroma with the addition of perhaps honey and hides the alcohol. well.

One complaint would be this particular glass did not have very good head retention.

Noticed that I haven't reviewed a beer yet and I should.

I care mostly about taste. I have a love of higher alcohol content beers with fruity flavors and this is my go to beer. I can't say enough good things about it. The rest of the reviews give details regarding taste and there is nothing I can add. I just wanted to help with the rating of this beer.

In the future I will be more verbose.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz. bottle poured into snifter.

A: Pours a very hazy golden color with small amounts of yeast sediment floating around. A large, bubbly off-white head is the result of a moderate pour. The head quickly dissipates to a white bubbly head. Small amounts of lacing down the glass. A relatively poor head retention and lacing really makes this one suffer, despite a gorgeous color.

S: Lots of orchard fruits here—apples and pears, namely, with small hints of peach. Weirdly detecting very small amounts of banana and a definite spice character beneath it all—cloves and coriander for sure. A little bit of breadiness from the yeast is very faint, but detectable if you get your sniffer close to dipping distance.

T: Fruits galore here. Apples, pears, bananas, bits of peach and plum. The peppery spice from the alcohol bites through along with traces of clove and coriander. The aftertaste is exclusively those fruity notes. I'm not getting a whole lot of earthy yeastiness like I was hoping. There's also no hop presence so the fruity sweetness is just BARELY balanced by the spice.

M: Full-bodied with a lightly syrupy feel, like a thick all-natural blended juice drink. Finishes out creamy and smooth and coats the palate nicely. A slight tingle from the alcohol and it makes its way down. A definite face-warming quality as well—to be expected from a tripel.

O: Merry Monks' ale is definitely a very solid offering from Weyerbacher. There's a few elements that count definitely be improved upon, namely the slightly imbalanced sweetness in the flavor. I would have liked to see more earthiness shine through to kind of cut down the fruitiness. The coriander and clove spice just didn't do the job fully. Other than that, this is an enjoyable brew that is great for late night, slow-sipping. Could do with some improvement, but still worth the try if it's readily available.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. Head isn't gigantic. It's a medium sized slice of white bubbles. Not too much lacing.

S-Aroma is actually nice. It's not overly aggressive with the Belgian yeast. If ind that many Tripels are too strong with the Belgian yeast and space. This one is a bit less intense. Fruity and sweet with a subtle hop note.

T-Flavor is also a bit more suited to many taste than many Tripels. The candied sugar, Belgian yeast and spice are there but they jive with my taste buds more than most. It's more mild and I enjoy that.

M-The beer is pretty drinkable. The alcohol is noticeable but it's not too hot. It went down easy enough.

O/D-I liked this more than I thought I would. A great intro into the style and I prefer this more than many.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a St. Bernardus Chalice glass. Although this bottle has no date (Weyerbacher uses a dual-coded date with the top being the Bottled On date and the bottom being an Enjoy By date), I purchased it at the brewery and know it was bottled sometime in September 2013.

A- A conservative pour yields a hazy, orange hued beer with only about a 1/2 finger's worth of a rocky, white head which dissipated quickly. Despite pouring cold and a majority of the yeast left behind, a noticeable amount of yeast made its way into the glass and remained in suspension. 3.5

S- A pleasant fruit salad medley: pear, banana, apple flesh, overripe pineapple and a hint of orange citrus. Very inviting! 4.5

T- Signature Belgian Triple: phenolic esters from the yeast (banana & clove) hits first followed by some honey-like malt sweetness. The finish is long: sweet, tart and spicy. There is a detectable warming sensation on the way down courtesy of the alcohol (no surprise at 9.3% ABV)...it is clear to see why those Monks are so darn merry! 4.25

M- Strong carbonation helps move the flavors across the palate, leaving your tongue prickly and while the heavier-side-of-medium body allows your palate to be coated with all of this beer's elements: fruity, sugary and spicy. 4.25

O- I am a fan of Weyerbacher and think Merry Monk's is the best of their year-round offerings. For the price (~$11.99, 6-Pack, $8.99 750ml bottle) and quality, this is simply one of the best authentic, craft brewed Belgian Triples in America. Although I prefer the mouthfeel of Merry Monk's from a 750ml corked & caged bottle, the 12oz format is just as good (and a better value). Being that the brewery boasts an active barrel aging program (Blasphemy, Insanity & Heresy), I would absolutely love for them to experiment with a Merry Monks aged in whiskey barrels. 4.00

Pours a clean amber with a 2 finger head that fades quickly with very light lacing. Smell is malt and lemon forward with many spice notes hidden. Tastes of cereal and malt with a long finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing medium body with a lingering finish on the palate. Overall a pretty good beer.

A gift from the BIL that was included in a Pennsylvania mixed 12 pack.

Appearance: Poured a very clear straw hay color, yellow to the eye. One thumb thick white head that held nicely, but dissipated evenly without any lacing. Although the pour was incredibly clear and there was no sedimentation in the bottom of the bottle, the beer settled into a light caramel color with some slight haze.

Smell: Fruit and spice are the overriding smells. Sorry gents, my nose is not all that refined.

Taste: Tons of taste. The first sip tasted citrus from the pear. The wheat characteristics shine next, with the spices hitting the back of the throat and stay in the nose and throat after every sip.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light, and effervescent. Take some time in between sips, and you will feel the beer linger on every bud.

Overall, a great great can't-miss beer.

a: murky burnt caramel with bubbles streaming up the side of the glass. gets darker the higher you move. 3 finger white head thats fizzes away pretty quick

s: tons of banana, wheat, clove, pepper, and coriander. in the background is a hint of sweet malt as well. this smells like its loaded with spices

t: much better than the aroma indicated. ripe banana and pear, sweet malts, some delicate wheat, and a whole lot of yeast. the yeast has some nice spice - clove and coriander. i smelled pepper, but don't detect any in the taste. ends with a little bit of alcohol, which helps this not be too sweet. flavor is dominated by those ripe fruits.

m: medium. quite a bit of carbonation, which helps the fruit flavors pop really nice and helps the sweetness come forward

o: surprised how much i like this. i thought it would be overly spiced judging by the aroma, but thats not the case. this is fruity and yeasty with a nice balance between the two.

A: Light amber with a quickly vanishing head.

S: Belgian spices with notes of plum, over ripe banana and dates.

T: First notes of plum and cherry, with a underlying flavoring of apricot. Very reminiscent of the big Belgian style Trappist beers, probably in the yeast profile. Secondary notes of crystal and munich malts, with low hop bitterness.

M: Sultry medium to heavy mouthfeel with no sense of the above 9 percent ABV. Light carbonation.

O: Really good representation of the style. I would concider this among the bett of the belgian style american ales today. Better than anything other American 'beligan syle' brewerys are producing currently. Great triple.

Poured into tulip; golden and clear with a fluffy white head that fades quickly, like a soda, into a topping of bubbles.
Smells of light bready malt, belgian yeast, alcohol, bananas and golden raisins, sweetness, and light spice.
Taste follows nose; very sweet, light malt, fruitiness with banana and some raisins, some tempered bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and smooth and fluffy.

Pours a slightly amber gold with a nice head and lacing which diminishes in a few minutes. Nose is slightly sweet with a touch of yeast, spice and pear fruit. Medium body approaching full with a nice slick texture. Very well carbonated from bottle conditioning. More flavorful than most Belgian tripels, although this one is US made, with a nice tartness against a typical Belgian flavor profile with a touch of spice. Finishes nicely with a slight alcohol burn at the back top of the throat. One of the better tripels I've had.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle in to a snifter/tulip kind of glass. What a creepy label.

A- Lovely golden body with some orange hues. Sort of hazy. Three quarters of an inch are what you get for a head but that disappears pretty quickly.

S- Big sweetness up front. Belgian yeast, banana, and white grapes. Just a bit of tartness.

T- Really sweet but dry at the same time. Pretty darn complex. Clove, white grapes, oranges, and a little booze. A real treat.

M- Very full, creamy, are nicely bubbly. Just great.

O- Like I said, this beer is a treat and a real surprise for me. I expected this to fall somewhere in the range of a Golden Monkey or the like, but this is a legitimately good tripel.

Hazy, golden in color, capped with a glorious head that's very fluffy. Excellent retention and lacing from the sticky foam -- this really has the appearance of a great beer. Yeasty phenols are the dominant component in the aroma at first. Chalky, marshmallowy, also smelling of ripe apple and pear.

Dry, More tart and bitter than other Tripels. The bitterness is fine but the tartness detracts a bit, and that's pretty much the only fault. Nicely dry and fruity. Green apple and white grape, vinous like a sparkling wine. Carbonation is a bit prickly but the bubbles are very fine and the level of vigor is appropriate for the style. Alcohol makes its presence known, but not on the palate. Kind of seems as though there's some earth Brett funk going on, too.

Weyerbacher has a great tripel in Merry Monk's, much better than their Quad. Very much worth a try.

I enjoyed Weyerbacher's Imperial Pumpkin, so I thought I would give this one a shot. At 9.3% ABV I knew this was going to be a strong beer, as Tripels are, and so I was OK with paying $11.99 for a 6 pack as a result. However, I found the alcohol flavor and dryness of this beer to be overwhelming. I did not get the sweet finish and, instead, found the alcohol really coming through with every sip. The faint fruit and spice flavors did little to mask it.
