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.

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.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottle pours a clear reddish brown color with just a wisp of head around the rim of the glass. Taste has a lot of pucker to it, ending in a dry medicinal mineral finish. Aroma is raspberry yes, but all the while tinged with that mineral undertone.

Bottle: Went to Ked and Bottle and bought a bunch of smaller bottles, the 22 Oz are too much to get a good daily sample. I got 3 Fruit Beers from Samuel Smiths. The Raspberry is very aromatic has a good balance, not too sweet could use some tartness. Drank in San Diego.

RSRIZZO (1898) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Color is a bright ruby with good carbonation and a small pink head. Aroma is tart with the scent of raspberries. Taste is smooth and tart. Starting with a lighter medium body it has a smooth feel. Finish comes in sweet with an easy malt flavor that quickly gives way to a tart raspberry taste. After taste is dry with a hint of bitterness showing. Very well done fruit flavored ale but there cherry is better.

This is a real take it or leave it kind of deal for me. Raspberry all over the place here. Not enough ale to balance, overall enjoyable but nothing shines through the sweetness. 90% wine cooler, 10% ale. Thank You samuel smith. 2009 16 oz.

thornecb (4789) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours a deep red into an english pint. Frothy pink head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Raspberry puree aromas. Strong sweet raspberry from front to back turning to a slightly seedy and stale sour finish.

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle pours red with a feminine pink head sitting atop. As far as fruit ales go, not too shabby. Start with a decent ale and add good fruit, you’re bound to come up with something drinkable. Aroma is heavy in raspberries, similar to the nose on a decent lambic. Easy drinking for those who like fruit in their beer. Only complaint is they tend to become extremely cloying, the more you drink.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Pours hazy reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma is rasberry puree and malted wheat. Flavor is also rasberry puree with light malty notes. OK.
