COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

.75l bottle @Explosive. Pours murky red with low pink head. Aroma is bubble gum, cherry, raspberry, hint of alcohol, malts. Flavor is malts, cherry, raspberry, burned sugar, a bit sourish. Swell!

Hopmaestro (1281) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2016
Backlog 2015 version: Aroma is full-on raspberries with malty undertones and some wet soil. Taste is sweet malty with a raspberry sourness dragging it up from underneath. Some dry seed tartness and very fruity. There’s a little more to this one than you first expect. Lovely fruit beer.

ciocanelu (1320) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Hazy reddish color with pinkish head. Aroma has quite natural raspberry juice notes and some sweet malt. Taste starts slightly tart and sweet, fruity, quite tasty. Overall it’s a quite good fruity beer but a bit too sweet for my taste.

Maakun (3919) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
Bomber shared at home. Clear bright reddish pink with light pink head. Lots of sweet raspberries, grassy, sweet grains, light German hops. Really not much else. Very sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied with sticky feel.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Sample @ Charleston Brewvival 2015. Deep reddish pour with a small head. Nice vibrant meaty raspberry on the nose. Quite jammy. Flavor is pretty tart and sharp. More raspberry and dark tart fruits complementing a bit of wood and citrus. Medium body, strong carb. Good.

Pours cloudy reddish with a small white pillow. Aroma is intense sweet raspberries, small yeast. Taste is splendid, light tartness, sweet raspberries with light yeast kicker. Had this with dessert and it really couldn’t have been a better pairing.

OminouSC2 (449) - SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2016
Red color. Raspberry aroma, some yeast and fruit. Taste is raspberries, sweeter than expected, with a slight tart finish. Not a whole lot going on but a nice balanced Fruit beer.

Like everyone says, red with pink head that lasts, smells like raspberry sour candy and taste like..........fun. A very cool ale that goes down smooth and has a nice kick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
