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.

(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.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity smell with raspberries. Fruity taste, sweet with lots of raspberries. The raspberries felt a bit artificial.

dwyerpg (5430) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 28, 2016
While the flavor certainly hides the alcohol well, this beer was so sweet when I really didn’t want something sweet, it just wasn’t working for me. A bit tingly. Definitely wouldn’t mind having again when I’m in a different mindset.

Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours gorgeous red ruby color. Small head. Aroma is raspberry sweet sugar, Belgian esters. Flavor is, ehh. Rubaeus. Not much different. Sweet. Very sweet. Not bad but couldn’t do a full pint.

Thechasm442 (661) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Tulip from bottle. Deep reddish brown with no head. Aroma is raspberries, Belgian yeast, and sour apples. Taste is raspberry, a bit of funk, and a little sweet fruity flavor. A bit syrupy and well hidden alcohol. Nice beer.

Leini (1738) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2016
750ml bottle. Hazy headless red body. Tons of candylike raspberry in the aroma, similar to the swedish fifty fifty lollies. Flavor is a bit similar too, with some yeasty notes. Finishes a bit dry.
