My favorite Samuel Smith fruit beer so far. Well balanced. Quite sweet with a lot of raspberry and some darker fruits. Malty, bread crust and hops for balance.

Clear raspberry colour with sweet aroma. Perfectly balanced palate, not too sweet, not too dry. Nice real fruit flavour. Very easy to drink. 5.1% Vol. Can’t really fault it. :-)

Milter (604) - Nyborg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2015
Overraskende go frugt-øl. Behageli frugtsmag, men lidt for sød, trods alt. Serveret meget kold.

Nische (1505) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2015
Pink pour with a lightly pink head. Light raspberry jam aroma. Rather sweet with very subtle tartness. Big raspberry flavor at the start with a lightly tart finish and a fruity, jammy finish.

Saeglopur (1432) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 8, 2015
355 ml bottle from Ammersin Centerstore.
Copper, moderate hazy body, with a big, creamy, moderately lacing, slightly pink head.
Aroma of raspberries, cherries, sugar, sweet malts, some sweet bread, subtle barnyard.
Tastes of sweet and sour raspberries, cherries, sugar, bread, sweet malts.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes moderate, sweet, a bit sour, fruity.

Good. Sweet but not too sweet, well balanced, also with some sour notes. Not very complex, but with nice, distinctive raspberry notes. Overall a good fruit beer, alhtough I’ve had much better ones.

Samuel Smith’s Organic Raspberry Ale has a medium, fizzy-ish, pink head, a clear, ruby red appearance, and low-level lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong raspberry juice with bread. Taste is a one-two punch of acidic & sweet raspberry juice and bready malt. Bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is medium, and Samuel Smith’s Organic Raspberry Ale finishes dry and highly drinkable. RJT

a quality brew company knows how to produce beer. and the raspberry from samuel smith is fruity, beery enough and genuine in both respects. bit of sharp tang balanced with sugar the beer has smooth and syrupy components. sampled at monmouth racetrack nj beer fest.

FatPhil (12181) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks Marduk
Wohhh, sweet raspberry aroma, perfumey, like a tart’s hankercheif. Red, small head. Thin palate, bit of fizz. Crazy sweet body, sharply citrussy to cut through the sugars. Stickyish finish. Sweet and juicy, but not what I’m after.
