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.

Hanoi (871) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 Bottle, 2015. Nose is pronounced raspberry,strawberry, almond, marzipan. Taste is very sweet marzipan, raspberry, lactose, cheese cake, vanilla, cough medicine,yeast, slight tartness. Mouthfeel is oily. This beer was 2015 consumed in late 2016d, and had no real hop profile, which I suspect my have been deleterious. Well put together and didn?t taste like fruit juice, but I can?t see myself ever drinking it again, too sweet for me.

LRonCupboard (44) - ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle from Vineyard, Belfast. Bright red, small white/pink head. Powerful concentrated raspberry aroma, with syrup, cherry and some wood. Medium body, syrupy/oily texture, lightly carbonated. Taste is fairly sweet, but fairly well balanced by acidic and slightly tart raspberry. Raspberry again very concentrated, almost freeze dried. Long finish. Hides alcohol. Only real criticism is it being a bit one dimensional - you going to need to like concentrated raspberries. First beer my wife has liked ever - extra mark!

ctipping (1523) - Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2016
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 9/3/2011. Deep red body. Like a carbonated red wine. Maybe a touch lighter, but close. Pours with a nice pink head. Fascinating for a beer. Leaves nice lacing. Raspberries, whoah. Before the raspberries kick in, it smells musty, too. Taste is all raspberries. Like raspberry juice, without all the sugar. Its still pretty sweet, but not like an actual raspberry. Not a lot of beer flavors coming through here, but still tasty. Nice tartness in the finish to fight off the sweetness. No booze, amazingly. Tart finish and a little dry. Still a bit heavy, but its 9.2%, so I guess thats to be expected. Not easy to drink. Tough beer to review. Unnecessarily large and difficult to drink, but it has a wonderful fruit flavor.

Hopmaestro (1398) - rebro, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2016
Backlog 2015 version: Aroma is full-on raspberries with malty undertones and some wet soil. Taste is sweet malty with a raspberry sourness dragging it up from underneath. Some dry seed tartness and very fruity. Theres a little more to this one than you first expect. Lovely fruit beer.

Hazy reddish color with pinkish head. Aroma has quite natural raspberry juice notes and some sweet malt. Taste starts slightly tart and sweet, fruity, quite tasty. Overall its a quite good fruity beer but a bit too sweet for my taste.
