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.

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2015
40 cl på fad, 9,2 % ABV, nydt på Frederiksberg Ølbar på Falkonér Allé på Frederiksberg, 7. juli 2015. Støvet bordeaux-rød amerikansk ufiltreret frugt-øl med minimal og flygtig skumtop på 1 mm. Ender i kant og intet andet. Smuk frugt-øl. Kraftig og tydelig aroma af hindbær. Svagere gær-noter af kælder. Fantastisk fyldig smag med god solid syrlighed, men tæmmet med middel sødme og let bitter eftersmag. Velafbalanceret og super frisk, men kraftfuld. Fuldstændig afbalanceret karbonering på et pænt niveau under middel, giver nyderen en blød mundfølelse uden, at øllet virker fladt. Kroppen er middel til stor, og konsistensen er let sticky. Dette glimrende bryg ligger i naturlig forlængelse af bryggeriets ligeså udmærkede Rübæus, og bekræfter blot, Founders kompetencer hen i begrebet at kunne tøjle og lave interessante frugtøl med potens. En lille stor perle.
