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.

omhper (21265) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Almost clear burgundy colour, small head. Huge balsamic raspberry aroma. Very sweet with medium-full body and rounded, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Some tartness from the raspberries, but not enough to balance the syrupy sweetness. The flavour is entirely dominated by raspberries. A one dimensional beer cocktail.

yngwie (15377) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG-12. A dense, deep pink head of finger-thick size sits on top of a deep red body. Lots of raspberries on the nose, pushing other aromas to the far back. If there’s any...Still, it’s really pleasant. It’s full-bodied, quite tart, and with a high but pleasant level of carbonation. Some sweetness in the flavor, but mostly it’s sourish berries, raspberry that is. Besides the raspberries there’s not much else going on flavorwise. It’s certainly one dimensional, but damn pleasant anyway. 120818

Bottle from Niall. Qdeep red clear. Lasting pink head. Lovely sweet cherry fruit. Vanilla. It’s faultless. Stupidly drinkable. Just a touch of sourness. Great.
