Weyerbacher Merry Monks

Weyerbacher's Merry Monks is a Beglian style Abbey Tripel. The beer is bottle conditioned and has an ABV of 9.3%. It pours a clear orange color with minimal white head. The nose has some light malt and is fruity, with hints of orange. The first sip lays out plenty of malt with fruity esters and a creamy like texture to the body. The finish is short but pleasant and invites you to have another sip. This beer is rich, yet smooth. Monks is unique in that it is a rare big ABV beer that is smooth and "light" enough to have during a very hot summer day. Weyerbacher makes some fantastic beers and I suggest that you try one of their beers if you see it sitting on a shelf at your beer store. Monks is a very, very enjoyable beer that I would recommend to any beer lover.
