Welcome to Cosmo's Beer Blog!

We’re a small group of friends and family scattered across the country who’ve all developed a thirst for craft and import beer. We decided that a blog would be a great venue for us to share our hobby. Here we will review beer, compare notes and challenge each other with "Beer Missions".

So welcome to our little world of discovering great tasting beer!

Blushing Monk

Blushing Monk by Founders
Style / abv: Fruit-Vegetable Beer / 9.2%
Source / Temp: 750ml bottle / 50 deg
Glass: Small Snifter

Appearance: Dark red brew with a fizzy amber head.

Aroma: An explosion of raspberry with some tart yeast and sour grape candy.

Taste: This beer tastes like fresh raspberries with a little grape and no discernible hops. It is very sweet and very tart with the 9.2% alcohol hidden so well that I couldn't tell it was alcoholic.

Drinkability: Slighty thicker than water with tight caronation. I can't imagine drinking this or any fruit / vegetable beer all the time, but I really enjoyed this brew.

While Blushing Monk isn't very complex, it is the oppitome of fresh. I am so glad that Founder's is now bottling some of their specialty brews and I look forward to having this again next year!

I give Blushing Monk a 7 out of 10.

Eis Igian,
