Founders Blushing Monk

Just had this beer the other night. The first of the Founders Backstage Series, Blushing Monk. Blushing Monk is labeled as a Belgian Style Ale fermented with pure raspberries. I enjoyed this beer although it was just a little too much. The beer itself is very malty sweet, along with the raspberries which give it a nice tartness it is just too sweet. It would probably have been better had the base beer been a little less malty sweet to allow the raspberries to shine through more, they do come through very well but the base beer just makes this one a little on the heavy side for what it could be. All in all a very enjoyable beer, but some minor adjustments in the base beer could make this one phenomenal.
