Blushing Monk is brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberries and with a Belgian yeast strain that keeps our head cellar operator from sleeping for a week. It pours a stunning deep berry red and, at 9.2% ABV, has a surprising kick. The perfect dessert beer, it can be enjoyed on its own or paired with fresh cheeses, fruit, cakes and more.

First released in July 2011, rereleased in 2015.

Clear dark red pour with light pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries, yeast, tartness and slight earthiness. Taste of tart raspberries, belgian yeast, candy sugar and slight funkiness. Full bodied, lower carbonation, nice balance of the tart and sweet berry flavors. Excellent fruit beer, a real treat!

Enjoyable, but too unbalanced and sweet for me. I’d never have guessed the high alcohol content.

Beautiful crystal clear, deep red with a minimal white head. Huge tart raspberry nose, some light apple, honey, very slight hay. Light tang, quite sweet. Longer finish, coats the mouth. Some light acidity and effervescence. Lightly carbonated. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oldrtybastrd (4887) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a nice reddish brown. Aroma is full of fruit and malts. Big raspberry flavor with hints of chocolate. To sweet and fruity for me to drink more than one. A real good beer.

Pours hazy red with a pinkish head. Aroma; Rasberry, vanilla, barnyard, funk and oak. Taste; a lot of rasberry,, vanilla, jam, and touch of oak. The rasberry is very dominant in this one but this beer is refreshing

(En fût au O’Brien’s): Pas si mal au nez. En bouche, ça goûte concentré de Kool Aid, ça me rappelle quelques mauvais souvenirs de malbouffe. C’est assez liquoreux, hyper fruité et sucré avec peu ou pas d’acidité. Je doute que ça ressemble à la version 2011 que j’ai manqué.
