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.

radiomgb (2543) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
650ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Deep red in colour with a pinkish coloured head, good retention, excellent lacing. The aroma has lots of raspberries, white sugar sweetness, a bit tart. The flavour is quite sweet with lots of raspberries, jam and juice, tart as well. Sweet mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and sweet with more raspberries. The raspberry flavour in this is nice. Never syrupy, actually tastes like real fruit.

Sweet, similar to framboise but not as sour. Would be very nice poured over vanilla ice cream. Not sure I could drink an entire bottle.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from The Vineyard. Raspberry colored, nice pink head. Nice raspberry nose, smells like ribena. Flavour is quite dry, fairly acidic, a touch of yeast and a little sweetness around the edges. Nicely balanced. Light and fizzy.

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Reddish, sweet, fruity like raspberry candy. Very sweet, uber candy, and not really balanced. I wouldn’t say "offensive" but I wouldn’t say "beer" either.

leebotton (335) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from single step health food shop Lancaster bought a year ago. Deep ruby red in my wide glass with an off pink light head. Aroma is acidic, raspberry, sweet and boozy. Yum. Rich, sweet fruity raspberry flavours with a hint of spicy esters. Mouthful is grand, all encompassing and almost silky. Very soft. Flavour is quite tart but balanced well by the sweetness and depth of texture. Surprisingly,I think this beer aged really well
