Tasty and deep, Merry Monks has good mouthfeel and interesting complexities, but overall lacks the full-flavor I really want from a tripel. It's a very fun beer, light and refreshing, but I generally prefer more punch being packed. I'll definitely be looking to try other Weyerbacher beers, however, as this was definitely a creative brew, hitting the fruit and cereal notes I expect from any abbey style ale, but in a fairly unique way.
