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!

teorn88 (5144) - London, 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.

Tapp. Disig rød farge. Lavt karbonert. Tynn hvit skumrand. Smaker Søte bringebær med hint av druestein. Fornøyelig

Pinball (11739) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2016
as founders blushing monk 2015. clear red to amber, small light red head. strong aroma of fresh red berries, raspberries, very slightly jam like, but like a very good delicate not-sweet raspberry jam. Flavor is raspberries, faint malt, faint fruit peel, very fruity, quite tasty. Alc. is almost too much, but the fruit manages to take it without the beer getting cloying, but it is a close call. One of the best non-sour fruit beers i have had ( don’t fancy them much, they get too sweet and cloying)

Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshares #18 . Pours hazy red with an off white head. Aroma has lots and lots of raspberries, some marzipan, red soda, vanilla, sweet red lemonade and some vimmi bears. The taste is also verry sweet with all the additions from the aroma. Lots of fruit, soda and candy. Also slight ginger as well. You can feel the alcohol is here but it is pretty hidden from the sweetness. Reminds me of something along the lines of the new glarus fruit beers.

Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #18. Pours a ruby red with a small, pale pink head. Aroma has a bit of... raspberry. And more raspberry.

Average high carbonation, surprisingly light body.
