Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: SheepNutz on 09-13-2001

Merry Monks, 9.3% ABV, is a Belgian-style Tripel. Pilsner malt combined with an Abbey yeast strain yields a remarkable and complex flavor packed with notes of spice, banana and pear. Nicely balanced, with a moderate to dry finish.

Merry Monks is bottle conditioned which imparts a special effervescence to the beer and a creamier carbonation. The ongoing fermentation inside the bottle will change the character of the beer as it ages and you’ll find it becomes dryer with age. You may want to lay down a few bottles for future evaluation. We suggest storing at cellar temperatures (around 55°F) and away from light.

This brew is available year-round. Keep your eye out for Merry Monks in 25 oz. cork-and-cage champagne bottles for an exceptional experience!

I mostly liked it, but found it a bit strong. The bitter was a bit much in the beginning but it grew on me.

Pours a pleasant golden, copper color. Not overly carbonated. Leaves a soapy head that rapidly dissipates. Taste is smooth and crisp with plenty of coriander, orange peel, cardamom, and sweet Belgian candy. An easy to drink beer with a splash of hops, but not overwhelming, and the bitterness rounds out the sweetness. Another mark for Weyerbacher. A great brewing company.
