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. 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!

DYCSoccer17 (3465) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2015
750ml bottle purchased at the beer cabin in Plattsburgh. Aroma is just raspberries. Tons of raspberry. Nothing else. Transparent red body with medium, quickly dissipating fizzy puce head. Starts with a bunch of semi sweet raspberry flavors. Velvety, thick mouthfeel in the middle. Becomes quite tart, and quite astringent towards the finish. Warming and ethanolic.
