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.

OxfordBeer (16) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2013
550 ml into strange glass. Pours almost a blood red/purple, like a raspberry puree. High carbonation and a soapy light pink head with good retention leaving laces on the glass. Nose is tart raspberries and esters. Taste is sweet, raspberries, some malt and a crisp dry finish leaving a subtle raspberry flavor on the palate. Somewhat dull mouthfeel, but an overall great beer, id purchase again.

Pours red-brown with a slightly pink head. Scent is stong raspberry. Taste is tart, slightly sticky, raspberry. A bit dusty tasting. OK, just not a favourite.

MIDWESTMURDER (2) - - JAN 8, 2013 does not count
Pours pink/red with strong Rsapberry scent. All in all not to bad, but tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer. Not a big fan of fruity beer, but absolutely love Samuel Smith’s so I thouhgt I would give it a try.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - DEC 16, 2012
red tinged pour with RED tinged head! - aromas of raspberry syrup - taste like carbonated melted raspberry sherbet with a little alcohol mixed in - I guess I would normally not like a raspberry ’beer’ with this much fruit but it’s not terrible

Tessic (816) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
This fruit beer poured a deep red colour with a nice, frothy, pink head. Scents include raspberries, hard fruit juice, champagne, wine and industrial adhesive. First sip was very raspberry flavoured. Quite tangy on the palate. Other flavours of sweet fruit juice and old books quite prodominant. Finish is like eating a plastic chair. No idea why the percentile is so high on this mess.
