Weyerbacher Brewing Co. Berry Monks Belgian Tripel

IMG_5529

This beer, Weyerbacher Brewing Co. Beery Monks, 9.3% ABV Belgian Tripel brewed with cranberries, orange peel, and ginger is a fruited version of their Merry Monks Belgian Tripel. Berry Monks pours a bright orange color with a two finger that is gone before you even see it’s there giving you a weird aroma of gingery cranberries with faint orange notes. The aroma on this is a bit medicinal smelling and the flavor is sour/tart with orange, cranberry, and big ginger notes that do not seem to meld well with one another. The flavor is a bit like berry medicine with a tart and slightly sour ginger finish with a sour bitter aftertaste that lingers too long with a light mouthfeel. You really don’t taste the 9.3% ABV because it’s masked by all the flavors that aren’t so good, I give this a D-. Cranberries and ginger shouldn’t go together and it made an off-putting flavor that makes for a bad beer and I don’t recommend Weyerbacher Brewing Co. Beery Monks, I won’t be having this again. Blah! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
