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.

This beer has a strong smell and taste of raspberries. It is very sweet. The color is a gorgeous red (looks like cranberry juice). No head on this beer. The flavor is not terribly complex, but the beer is enjoyable. The thin consistency of this beer and the sweetness make me think it would be a good beer to drink on a hot day at a cookout.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 1, 2009
(550 ml bottle) Raspberry smoothie...Pours pink-amber with a tallish pink-white head that settles to a fluffy, foamy cap. Aroma of raspberry and vanilla, almost like ice cream. Mouthfeel is smooth and soft, like a smoothie. Flavor of raspberry and light vanilla with a light tartness. Even has a bit of bitterness toward finish and warmer samples finish a bit peppery. A fairly pleasant fruit beer with a hint of sour that balances the fruit sweetness.

yngwie (13562) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2009
Bottle. It pours a hazy, red body under a a small, pinkish white head. Raspberry, sweetness, berry-like sourness and jam on the nose. A bit weak. The flavor is sweet and raspberry-ish, with some sourness. It lacks a bit, but is quite decent. Medium body with some acidity. Sweet, berryish finish. A quite decent one, even though it lacks something in both aroma and flavor. (090228)
