Today I was part of something pretty amazing. I can’t say more than that because I don’t want to jinx a good thing. But I finally feel like all this hard work may finally pay off.
Merry Monks. It poured a cloudy apricot color. It had a full white head and was very active in the glass. The scent is sweet and full of an undetermined fruit smell. The taste was predominantly alcohol, which I found disappointing. There was also a creamy doughiness to it and cloves. It drank with a full mouthfeel - sort of creamy (have fun with that one!) - but finished dry.
While this was a perfectly fine beer to drink, I think I prefer some of Weyerbacher’s other offerings: Verboten, Blanche and the Winter Warmer. I’m also very intrigued by the Rapture - a sour red ale aged in pinot noir barrels.
