The first thing standing out about Weyerbacher Merry Monks is the unrelenting effervescence. A myriad of micro bubbles race through the sparkling clear Tripel to reach the creamy white head. Yeast, banana, and bread dominate the aroma. After a sip, sweet grapes come to the forefront, buttered toast, followed by just enough hops to balance. Gets sweeter, dryer, and the 9.3% is more evident as it warms.

Really enjoying this. I do get the slightest hint of skunk, but with no date, hard to tell if it’s normal. Still, this is one to enjoy.
