COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised;
Also known as Organic Raspberry Handcrafted Fruit Ale
A product of England this is an ale brewed with raspberry juice and natural flavours added. Brewed at All Saints in Stamford Lincolnshire and blended and bottled at Samuel Smith’s Brewery. The finest organically grown barley and wheat are used to create a complex ale which having undergone primary and secondary fermentation with different yeasts and extended maturation. This beer is blended with pure organic raspberry fruit juice and a previously cellared brew creating an unparalleled fruit ale. The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice.

Bottle shared by bu11zeye. Pours a nice ruby red with a pinkish white head. Aroma is heavy on the raspberries, with hints of pie spices. Taste is sweet raspberries and jam. Very clean, and one to pour after dinner.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish-purple color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong raspberry with not much else. The flavor is identical to the aroma. Other than a lot of raspberry, I don’t get anything else. The beer is very sweet and tastes more like raspberry juice than any kind of a beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bouteille 500ml, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur rouge foncée et voilée. Nez fruité (framboises et moyen de cerises naturelles, léger de sirop de fruits) et léger de grains de malt. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement sirupeuse fruitée. Goût fruité (framboises sucrées aux petites notes acides, léger de cerises) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de grains de malt ainsi qu’un goût sucré de sirop de fruits puis en finale l’on retrouve des petites notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen, légèrement sucré et aux petites notes acides de fruits (framboises, notes de moût de cerises).

Metalchopz (2956) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
An English brewery I always like to see at the LCBO. After having a few weak fruit beers from "Les Frères Houblons", I was expecting something good from this one. Pours a dark red colour with a rich red-pink creamy head that has good retention and beautiful lace. A full raspberry nose is felt, with the great fruit juice. Lightly bodied which makes this one quite refreshing. Does not seem weird (different) like most organic brews I have tastes. Some nice sweetness with the juice and a little sourness in the finish. A very well-balanced organic raspberry fruit beer.

Strangebrewer (1098) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2010
bottle. Poured opaque reddish-brown with a large pink-beige head. Aroma is candied raspberry and sickly sweet. VERY sweet candied flavour with a malt undertone. A little dry, and a touch of alcohol. Palate is medium with average carbonation. A nice fruit beer without a sour taste.
