BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States
weyerbacher.com

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

This was a pretty good tripel, with some fruity, spicy, and estery character, along with a good deal of maltiness. However, the high alcohol could come off harshly and it was not the smoothest body. Decent, I would probably get it again if it was a good deal.

Pours a hazy orange color with a bright white head when poured aggressively. Smell is sliced well with hints of coriander, clove and banana. Initial taste is sweet with those wonderful flavors but maintains a boozy feel throughout. The mouthfeel is not as heavy as expected. Overall, this is an awesome brew and can't wait to try it from a growler

Surprised I've never rated this, Bottle from Harvest market.
Deep yellow gold color without much of a head. Sweet bready malt candi sugar and light clove an bubble gum. Its a bit sweet for a tripel but it is pretty tasty.

Cloves and slight hints of banana in the smell as poured into pint glass. Nice golden color and very smooth and easy to drink. Not my favorite taste but I recognize that others would like this more than me.
