Merry Monks is a Belgian that can be said defines the style. It’s big, spicy, smooth, pretty dry finish, just everything you’re looking for in a Belgian Tripel. That being said, it’s opponent here, Audacity of Hops out of Cambridge Brewing Company is anything but style defining. It’s a hybrid style of a Belgian and an IPA, and it’s exactly what you’d imagine if those two styles were to slam and pump out a little mixed baby. It’s got Belgian candy-sugar sweetness for days, but slaps you on the way down with a Hops backhand to the head. This match up is going to be amazing, I can feel it. Who ya got?
