Brewed by:
Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

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!

So, being from Pennsylvania I might be biased for this beer. I happen to love Weyerbacher products and this out of their line is my current favorite.

I've had this beer several times and this particular tasting was poured into a small serving glass from the bottle. Headdy! Golden color. Sweer aroma. Classic triple taste! You can taste the classic corinader flavor appearant in many Belgian Triples. Along with that spice its usually accompanied by orange peel. Very sweet probably attributed to the candy sugar used in the brewing process. The bottle says you can detect a hint of banana but I can't pick it up.
In my opinion this is the quintessential belgian triple.
