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.

Poured a dark burgundy with very pink foam. The aroma is a full on blast of raspberry. Not much complexity but it does the raspberry really well. The taste? Hey more raspberry imagine that. I admit this is quite delicious if you like raspberries. The alcohol is also nonexistent, in fact it almost tastes a bit like drinking a 3% lambic. The body is quite full on this one as well.

Bottle from McHughs. Pours dirty red with wispy off white head. Aroma is raspberry, sour, some dough. Sweet raspberry flavour with Saison mouthfeel. Dry tart finish. Lovely.

Draft. Pours a hazy dark red color. Aroma and taste are sweet raspberries and some tartness.

Beerathon (1590) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2015
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish with a white head. Taste sweet, sour, raspberries. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

Nische (1218) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Ruby red with off-white head. Aroma of sweet raspberries, caramel and some cherries. Very artificial taste, almost like syrupy candy. Quite thin and extremely easy to drink. Way to sweet and simple for my taste, I could just as well drink some raspberry soda instead.
