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.

Starts out with sweet raspberries, and then finishes a bit tart. Nice flavor profile - even if it is a bit simplistic. Body is a bit thin and heavily carbonated, but overall, I enjoyed this. A solid enjoyable fruit beer. Very drinkable.

Septemberfest. Sample from a bottle shared by me. Pinkish red with a thin white cover. Aroma is syrupy raspberry. Taste is simple raspberry, sweet but not overly sugary. Better than the strawberry.

decaturstevo (5337) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Slightly hazed red pour with a fluffy white head and lace. Huge raspberry and that’s all. Sour start to a nice raspberry flavor. Thin and foamy. A fun drinking beer that tastes as good as it smells.

Pours red with a large pink head. Sweet aroma of raspberry. Good raspberry flavor, although slightly artificial tasting. A little thin, but pretty decent fruit beer.

downender (6635) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle from Centurion Vintners, Stroud. Red in colour with a momentary pinkish-white head. Strong raspberry and cherry fruit aroma with accompanying sweetness. Flavour had bucketloads of sweet raspberry fruit, before a hint of dryness in the finish. Ok.

marcus (7083) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This dark red beer poured into a flute with a modest pink head and an intense raspberry aroma. If you like raspberries, it’s pretty good, since that’s about all you can taste. It’s refreshing and tasty, but it’s not really beer.
