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 Smithís 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.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2009 Bottle from The Party Source. Pours cloudy purple with off white/pinkish head. Aroma of raspberry, sweet and a little tart. The flavor follows suit. Could use more body, as the palate is pretty thin. Finishes a lot like it starts, albeit with a little more tartness. For Sam Smith, Iíd rank this one between the strawberry and cherry versions.

Aromas of raspberry preserves and the flvors follow suite with the aromas. Enjoyable and easy drinking.

Bottle: Dark ruby pour with a creamy pinkish head. Aroma is rich with sweet and tart raspberries; very fresh. Flavor is also full of fruitiness, sweets, and tart. Much better than anticipated and very enjoyable.

clear rose, pinkish fizzy head. sweet raspberry syrup aroma, with a bit of pine resin and malt underneath. hits the tongue very sweet, stays fruity, but ends slightly more balanced and leaves a long dry raspberry finish. medium body, a bit undercarbonated, almost cloying, but not quite.

hazy deep purple with a large frothy light pink head. very similar appearance to the cherry. amazing raspberry and flower aroma with a distinct spicy herbalness. a floral, caramel, raspberry flavor with toasted malt finish. some hints of milk chocolate too. there something hugely appealing about this beer. I canít quite nail it down though. the caramel flavors mid palate?, milk chocolate?, the sweetness?, the flowery hints in the finish? everything perfectly infused with lush ripe raspberries. i never thought a fruit beer could be this good. wow! Iím a fan.

Reddish pour with cute pink head. Fresh, winsome aroma of raspberry and blossoms. Another old world Samuel Smith label. The flavor is sweet and malty with lots of raspberry. A light sour-bitter tingle comes on toward the end, and leaves behind a pleasant berry aftertaste. It is not too sugary, and there is nothing artificial in here. Maybe not the fruitiest or the best of the Samuel Smith organic fruit ales, but still a very nice brew.

~Pours a cloudy light red color with thick creamy pinkish white head. ~Candy raspberry scent with an underlying malty wheat, somewhat tart. ~Tart raspberry flavor overpowers the base wheat beer. ~Light, somewhat frothy, fresh, clean and refreshing feel. Tart and sweet finish. Little bite on the tongue. ~Good fruit beer. Raspberry overpowers a bit, but good fresh flavor of raspberry. Great dessert brew!

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown. The aroma is very strong raspberry, which is nice. The flavor starts out pretty nice, if a bit sweet, but it starts to lose a lot on the finish. There is a strange taste on the finish, not bitter but very sour. Itís a small thing right at the end - it doesnít last - but it is unpleasant. The body is light, but it is refreshing.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 lively aroma of ripe, tart raspberry. very inviting. the flavor was not quite as assertive, but pleasing nonetheless. a tad thin on the palate, but a highly drinkable, slightly tart, and nicely fruity ale. well done.

0.55l - Reddish-pink pour, raspberry jam nose, maybe some mint hiding in there. Raspberry cough syrup palate, watery texture. Good not great. Would benefit from some sourness.
