12 oz bottle part of a 6 pack from Beltway Fine Wines in Towson. Poured into a chilled glass. No head, gold color, smells sweet. Tastes good, no taste of alcohol, albeit sweet. A little aftertaste. Very good. jwatkins56550 (17) - USA - MAY 9, 2010
At first whiff I get a prominent banana ester remiscent of a hefeweizen. Don’t often get that from other triples but I am a fan. Slightly sweeter than my other favorite triple: Golden Monkey. Overall a fantastic beer. Nice bready biscuity aroma as well which Iove. Not as dry as some but definitely dry enough. Good carbonation and nice finish, worth trying again and again. orourke (17) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Poured from a bottle into a globe glass. Aroma of alcohol, sugar, and yeast. Starts off with a taste of alcohol and yeast. In the middle it tastes like alcohol and yeast. Finishes with a taste of alcohol and yeast. Not my favorite, but if you like alcohol and yeast give it a shot! irishfist18 (16) - - APR 5, 2017
May be the best tripel i’ve ever had.amazingly sessionable for such a big beer.great balance of malt and hops.being from the easton pa area i have been on their brewery tour and have tried almost every release,and merry monks is the best..its too bad their other beers are so foul and most of the guys employed there are such pompus arrogant snobs.

Deep gold color, opaque. Nice head and citrusy aroma. Belgian ale type flavor with citrus and slightly set backbone. Not overly malty. Smooth flavor with very little aftertaste.

pours haze brass coulor with a short thin white head. smells sweet and tast the same. very sugary withfruity apricot undertones. this is too sweet to be very drinkable, one every now and then as a dessert maybey. I drank a few of these and the rest have been in cellar for a year now. dBrEiEnRk (13) - Quakertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2003

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 Poured from a 12oz bottle. Head was a dull froffy white and dissipated pretty quickly. Smelled strongly of yeast and malt with hints of banana and orange. The appearance was an apricot color with very dark clouds. Tasted bitter sweet/spicy, this was thick almost syrupy with a strong alcohol taste and a dry floral finish. oldthumper (13) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine. The monk on the label urging silence has been replaced by two monks carrying a barrel. Beer pours expectantly with great head that dissipates quickly. Aroma signals it's big on alcohol, but taste is a big disappointment. Cloying candi-sugar sweetness, in-your-face clove phenolics and harsh back-of-the palate bitterness doesn't bring the right balance to make it a worthy BelgianTrippel.
