Weyerbacher Merry Monks

Ah, thanks... I missed you yesterday, too. Have you ever been too sick to drink beer? Well, that's how I felt last night. And I might need to dust off the old sarcastic machine, as it's been slow today. We'll see.

Tonight, I'm going to try to get back in the saddle slowly with a Merry Monks' Belgian Style Tripel brewed by Weyerbacher Brewing Company in Easton, PA.

This is my third from Weyerbacher. The first I liked a lot; the second I liked but wasn't overwhelmed with awe.

Shall we begin? Well, the Merry Monks certainly are fruity (at least aroma-wise, and you should see the label on the bottle for other ideas). They are also yeasty in aroma. Flavors are very mixed. There is a strong spicy and sour taste all at once followed by a banana and alcoholic aftertaste. The 9.3% alcohol is noticeable yet fairly-well and nicely hidden, but there is still that afterburner kick. You can also taste some yellow apple and caramel flavors, but they just don't seem to be sweet as you'd eat them normally. Sour and alcohol are powerful. I guess it's semi-balanced. A nice beer that I'd probably have again but not my favorite.
