Bottle: That is one pinkish or rose hued pour. Thin to moderate frothy off-white head, bit of a
pinkish hue. Big sweet raspberry nose. Big and sweet raspberry on the tongue. Doesnt seem
artificial, yet its not like the New Glarus examples. &nbps It is certainly strong from start to finish. The
thing I like about this is that while its nearly 10%, its not sticky or thick. Smooth, flavorful, and
refreshing. Very much on par with the original one I had in 2008, perhaps the 2007 example. Finishes
sweet, fruity, loads of raspberries, and just overall very clean. Surprisingly easy to drink, and very
flavorful. &nbps Doesn’t come across as authentic as New Glarus, but its way better than most raspberry examples,
the point that I would rank this #2 on my list of Raspberry beers.   Thanks Kevin!

Keg at Leeds International Beer Festival 2015. This is pretty amazing, a mixed bag of Belgian vibes. A quite sweet framboise mixed with slightly sour Flemish red (i.e. Rodenbach from a can). Tastes like juice more than 9% beer. Peach pit aftertaste. Luminous bright/deep red appearance with off-white head. Maybe I just needed a beer, but really enjoying this. Alcohol super well-hidden.

Bottle of 2015 Blushing Monk at Kings Table in Dayton, Ohio on September 4, 2015.
Look - Light pink to red to dark raspberry. Bubbly head. Thickest bubbles I have seen. White.
Smell - Raspberry. Grape. Faint tobacco. Raisin.
Taste - Grape juice. Raspberry. Slight "beer" taste but may as well be a cider.
Feel - Very smooth for a cider like beer. No carbonation bomb.
Overall - Good transition beer from cider.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Puce colored pour with off-white frothy head. Big raspberry aromas and flavors, some of the best I’ve ever had in a beer. Sweet and a bit tart, not cloying at all. The ABV helps this fruit beer be bigger bodied and more complex, definitely not one note. Really like it.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
As a Rubaeus fanatic this is amazing. Poured into a tulip from bomber. Pours beat red with one finger white/pink head that dissipates quickly. Smell is all raspberry. Flavor follows. Just the right amount of bitterness. A little warmth but other than that no alcohol. Dangerous at 9%. Light-medium body with medium carb. Delicious.

Keg at Brewdog Camden, London. A deep ruby red coloured pour with a medium pink/white head on top. Sweet, raspberry aroma. Tastes of raspberry, slightly yeasty, quite sweet and tart. All about the raspberries this one, not a huge fan of fruit beers but this was really good.
