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.

Bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen, 2015 version. Slightly hazy, red amber with a tan head. Sweetish, slightly fruity aroma of raspberries, sweet cherries, rose hips and some vanilla. Sweetish, slightly sourish and fruity taste of raspberries, strawberries, sweet cherries and almond, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately tart finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very nice!

Thank you for sharing ElManana+1! 660 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG V. 2015 version. Pours a very deep raspberry pink, little pink head. Nose is huge raspberry jam, syrup, similar akin to cheap raspberry cookie filling. Taste is same cheap raspberry cookie filling & raspberry jam, very sweet,… Solid body. This is more akin to candy than actual fruit, I like it but it is also a bit too candy & artificial-like to fuly embrace & like but I did enjoy it.

Benzai (14108) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2016. A bit hazy reddish color, virtually no head. Sweetish, floral aroma. Taste red fruit, raspberry, perfumy again and tart. Don’t like it. Definitely couldn’t finish a bottle on my own.

teorn88 (6473) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2016
22oz bottle from Beer Gonzo. It pours a clean ruby color with minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and syrupy with huge loads if raspberry marmalade. Hard to pick up anything else. Taste is all of the same, massive amounts o sugars and syrupy raspberries. Light booze. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, easily a drain pour, undrinkably sweet.
