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. 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.

Sammy (10019) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
LCBO bottle, aka Melbourne Brothers raspberry, and certainly in their way of making beer. Sticky enough to attract flies. Reddish with pink foam. On the sweet side, medium mouthfeel. A good tartness. Very berry. Decent fruit beer.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle [550ml]. Pours a bubbly deep pink-amber with a large lasting fluffy pink head. Decent lacing. Nice aroma of tart raspberries, cherries too, lightly sweet and slightly earthy. Flavour of tart raspberries and some cherries backed by caramel malt and a dry, tart finish -- quite tasty. Gets a touch sweet after a while but never too much so. Carbonated just right for the style. Average bodied. Really good stuff, I need to get to the store for more pronto!

Bottle from my 3-year-old son as a present for my birthday. Don’t know where he got the fake id.

This completes my non-lambic raspberry trifecta (Alaskan, Wyders, Sam Smith) of the last 24 hours. Don’t think I’ll repeat it any time soon. Basically, raspberry juice with a bit of wheat beer character. Sweet and sticky, tasty enough but nothing like beer. Deep red pour, pink head, Intense raspberry aroma, sweet rich juice dominating the flavor. None of the dryness that the Alaskan had to offer. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Aroma is raspberry, light reddish- amber color. Light pink head. Fairly mild raspberry taste, hints of malt. Better than some fruit beer, but not my favorite style.

1Pt. 2.7 FL OZ bottle from the LCBO. Pours a very obvious deep red colored beverage, especially noticeable in the head of the beer which is a very noticeable pink color from all the red in the beer. Smells like a fresh raspberry. Also tastes like one, somewhat unfortunately. Some other fruit beers, say ones by St-Ambroise or so on, have been pleasantly surprising when they actually have a strong, malty, or hoppy, beer taste to them. Having a great aroma of fruit but a taste of good beer is a wicked combo, but when its fruit+fruit+more fruit.. It’s too much. And I think this beer is too much.

Nose is true raspberry, ruby colour, pours a small pink head, trace of lace. Milder raspberry taste than the nose implied, hints of malt. Light bodied, sweetness is ideal, very refreshing. Great example!

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
650ml Bottle: Pours an almost dark ruby copper colour, frothy and bubbly pink head. Incredibly robust aroma of raspberries, acidic, sweet and sour. Very much like a jam. Smooth drinking, almost cloyingly sweet and tongue-clinging. Strong raspberry flavour, bready, extremely light hopping. Like drinking a raspberry tart. As far as fruit beers go, heck, this ain’t bad.
