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.

Petkus331 (325) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2015
Very raspberry aroma with sour and sweet background and a touch of aluminum foil. Appears like cranberry juice with pink foam and lace. Tastes like a rapberry wine; tart, sour, and sweet are all very well balanced with a touch of bitter hay. Texture is nearly a 5, foamy, thick, and light. Oversll, very good, could be hopped a touch more to tone down the sweetness. Tastes a bit like an aged Founder’s Rubeus.

Tap. Super dark ruby-pink. Nice little bit of lingering head. Super raspberry nose - sour but sweet. Full body. Tastes of tart raspberry juice with the slightest of yeast undebites to cut the super juicy aspect. Would probably benefit from aging.

tiong (4504) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 21, 2015
750ml bottle @ 5th Street Bar & Cafe, Helsinki

BBE 2.10.16 - Pours dark reddish brown with a smooth white head. Aroma of tart raspberries, smooth sweet syrupy notes, malts, hints of berries and fruits. Taste is smooth, sweetish and syrupy with loads of tart raspberries, some funky yeastiness and soda like notes. Finish is smooth, sweet and syrupy with loads of raspberries and some hints of tartness. Pretty balanced raspberry juice.

laiti (6730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 21, 2015
75 cl bottle @ 5th Street Bar, Helsinki. BBE 02.10.2016. Aroma has sweet raspberry juice. Flavour has sweet raspberry juice, some malty tones and distant marmalade notes. Finishes somewhat tart and acidic with mild white wine notes. Gets a bit more sour towards the end of the glass. Hides the ABV well. Smooth and balanced, not too sweet.

Bomber thanks to RespertFTW. Bright red with a white head. Tart cherry. Deep cherry and dry. Still a bit sweet.

rodenbach99 (3467) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Une grosse bouteille avec Pat. Une robe rouge-rose avec une mousse intense. La tête est rose. Un nez de fruits rouges, framboises et de sirop pour la toux, rien de décevant. Le liquide est enrobant en bouche, l’équilibre est parfait, pas trop sucrée juste assez, pas trop acide, juste assez. Les saveurs fruitées sont compotées. Qui n’aimerait pas ?

dhatton (135) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2015
She was dressed as Pirouette in red...pours a deep crimson body with full pink cap of foam. Head settles quickly, leaving a sticky lacing. Wafts of fresh summery fruit with some funky yeast. Massive berry taste with a pleasant tartness. Slick mouthfeel, slightly syrupy consistency, and a lingering sweetness.

HourGlass13 (221) - North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pours a crystal clear garnet red with a light off white head. The aroma is raspberry with just a hint of cherry. Flavor is also mainly raspberry with a malty note. Tart finish. Medium body, good fizz, though not too much. Reminds me of a wine cooler from back in the day. Packs a good punch with its 9.2% ABV. Not overly boozy tasting. Great desert beer. I wouldnt want a large quantity of it, you might be painting the town red! Or at least your walls!!
