COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jamieson Raspberry Ale has real Raspberries added at the fermenter to give the beer a distinct flavour. Colour is that of a pale ale but does have a pink tinge and good carbonation. Raspberry is the aroma and Raspberry is the first flavour on the tip of the tongue. Mid palate is a light biscuit malt flavour and has a dry thirst quenching finish.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a light hazy brown with heaps of head and loads of carbonation! Aroma is all raspberries. A tart sour raspberry smell. Taste is raspberry up front, but has a slight malty finish. Quite sweet and wouldn't be able to drink too many but nice for something different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was assuming that this beer would be a dodgy shandy, and the sickly sweet aroma did nothing to change my mind with its overbearing candied raspberry. I felt like a kid in a candy store, but in a dystopian kind of way. Funnily enough, there was no sweetness in the taste, just as the label had faithfully promised. In fact, it was quite a tart, sour beer with only a little raspberry. I’m glad I tried it, but once is probable enough.

Bif (1303) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 Bottle- pours a hazy bronze color with a small head that fades to decent lacing. Aroma of raspberry sweetness. Taste of raspberry sweetness. Mild bitterness and a lingering raspberry taste. Light body,smooth but too sweet. Another fruit beer which I did not really enjoy as it is too sweet.

A-- Poured a light orange brown color. Short lived white head that quickly faded to film. Decent active head retention and a fair amount of carbonation shown with this. S-- Big raspberry smell. Very tart and very berry. Has a bit of a kriek smell to it. Good nose to this. T-- Not as big a punch in the taste as in the smell. Lots of carbonation and a little bit of sour tartness from the berries. Not as much raspberries as had hoped for from the smell. M-- Good carbonation and has a sort of champagne sort of feel to this. Takes a bit for the tartness to kick into the mouth and need more raspberries in this. It is on the soft side and lacking a big punch that others have in this. D-- It is good but lacks the big raspberry punch. Has a great smell but a letdown in the taste and mouth. Do get some of the residual tartness but not enough for that POW factor. This could be made into a really good raspberry brown ale though. Highly drinkable at 4.7% but one is more than suitable.

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Very good beer. Intense aroma of raspberry, with a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average duration. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2010
Pours dark amber with a persistent small head. Raspberry is quite dominant on the nose, with some sweet caramel malt just noticeable underneath. Less raspberry shows as a flavour, instead a pronounced harsh chalk, bleach and cement note is present. Some sweet malt lingers, but that harsh chemical note ruins everything.

hawthorne00 (2257) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2010
Hazy gold with a slight red tinge. Bright, tight white head. Smells strongly of fresh raspberries. Taste is very slightly sweet. Dry finish. Real raspberry flavour. Not super complex, but hardly one-dimensional. Nicely integrated flavours. The pattern of ratings for this beer suggest that it has changed for the better.

Maris (914) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2010
From a 330ml bottle on 10 January 2010. This cloudy brew’s nose is (not surprisingly) all raspberries. Lots of raspberry in the flavour too, but not too much else seems to be going on with it. The label states that it’s ’Anything but sweet’ and that’s quite accurate - it has a moderate, lingering sour, bitter finish. This is a bit of a weird beer, quite interesting and worth a try, but is a little too one dimensional for me to get enthused about.
