Founders Blushing Monk Belgian Style Ale

Return to List

This limited-edition Belgian-style ale is fermented with pure raspberries, and it dominates the experience in the best of ways from first sniff to last sip. Aside from an assertive fruit core of fresh mashed raspberries, it offers attractive notes of bready malt, white pepper and yeasty spice to complement. The medium-bodied palate is slightly creamy and slick in feel, with low carbonation but a bright, fruity tartness that helps to balance the generous texture. Despite the high abv, the alcohol is remarkably well-integrated and balanced, and the finish entrances with lingering tones of earthy spice. Lauren Buzzeo
