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.

The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice.

Pours deep reddish copper with a tall dusty pink head that has good retention. Aroma is raspberry, straw, red apple, wheat, a touch of caramel and dusty grains, sweet floral notes as it warms. Flavor is fresh raspberries, sweet grains, wheat cereal, green and red apples, floral perfume, light lemon-lime citrus notes and buttery pie crust. Palate is thin to medium thickness with a rather dry feel all over and a slightly acidic finish. Better than the other two varieties but still a little over done on the fruit, I wonder if a couple months of aging would tone down the fruit a little and let more malt notes come out or just make it taste stale and oxidized.

Aquilo (555) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
This is a nice fruity beer. It is dark burgundy red with small white head. Tastes like raspberries, smells like raspberries. All exactly as advertised. Not too sweet. Doesn’t really taste like a beer either. Still, it’s hard to be disappointed by it. It sure hits the spot if you’re thirsty.

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.
