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. Dark red pour, beautiful bright red carbonation and a tart fresh raspberry aroma. Flavor is tart vibrant raspberries and enough of a malt backbone to back it up to prevent it from being an overly sweet sugar-bomb. Very good!

Drank from a large bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a beautiful red color, has wonderful aromas of raspberries. A good brew does not taste like 9.2%!

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 22, 2015
On tap at Harryís Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is raspberries, cherry juice. Taste is raspberries, slightest wine cooler taste with the alcohol a little hot but manages to finish pretty silky smooth. Was a expecting a bit more from this one but still a pretty great fruit beer.

mathieuc (2484) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2015 Bottle shared and paired with dessert. Pours a clear raspberry red with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of real raspberries, a bit jammy, over a tripel-ish base. Taste is of juicy raspberries with some light backing alcohol. Never too sweet and a little tart. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is juicy. A serious fruit beer!

MadIndian (2663) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle sampled at Studio 1 with Anna, William and Holly. What can I say that hasnít all ready been said, big raspberry notes, tart finish, hints of yeast and caramel. The good news is that the fruit flavor did not taste synthetic or chemical in any way. Good for the style.

Mr_Abner (263) - Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Bottle (2015 version). Pours a deep ruby red with an off-white head. Lots of messy lacing coats the glass half-way through. Aromas of raspberries & raspberry juice -- smells slightly syrupy. Heavy sweetness with a light bitterness creeping up in the finish. Tastes of raspberries. Medium+ bodied and soft. Makes me wish I had some angelís food cake on hand to pair it with.

tdtm82 (1404) - Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle, bought in the States, drunk at home. Loads of raspberries and a prominent good head. Raspberries on aroma. Also perfume and spruce. Quite an interesting aroma. Taste is far too sweet for me. Itís not very acidicy. Itís very sweet. Infact too sweet. I want some more Belgian influences please. Also itís quite hot on the finish and the alcohol is rather unnecessary for a fruit beer. Itís ok. Just donít get the hype.

GenDV138 (4119) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2015
750 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. 2015 edition. Clear dark reddish with 1-2 fingers of off-white head. Aromas of raspberries, fruit syrup, light booze and yeast. Loads of raspberries in the taste along with spices, light booze, very slight yeasty character. Medium body with a crisp dry finish. Bit of a yeasty/champagne like aftertaste. Very fruit forward.
