Weyerbacher Merry Monks' Ale

I wrote: "Berry sort of smell. Easy, berry sort of taste. Real solid beer. Oh wow, this doesn't taste like its ABV at all, 9.3%. Ah... I don't know how to describe the flavors in this beer, but they're good." 10:55PM ET

WINNER: Bronze Medal 2010 World Beer Cup Category 47: Belgian-Style Tripel

WINNER: Best Belgian Beer, Philly Beer Scene Awards: 2010, 2012, 2013

Merry Monks’ 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. 9.3% ABV.

The on-going 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. (Read about cellaring beer here!)

This 9.3% brew is available year-round. Keep your eye out for Merry Monks’ Ale in 25oz. cork-and-cage champagne bottles for an exceptional experience!
