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.

This beer was okay. The raspberry seemed to come in bursts, and conflict with, rather than blend with or complement, the typical ale flavors. Not my favorite fruit beer, or my favorite Sam Smith brew

Bottle. Pours a clear deep red with a small pink head. Aroma of sweet fresh raspberries. Flavor of fresh raspberry jam, fruit and had a slight tartness.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Reddish, sweet, fruity like raspberry candy. Very sweet, uber candy, and not really balanced. I wouldn’t say "offensive" but I wouldn’t say "beer" either.

Leuchtend, rötlich, kein Schaum. In der Nase Himbeer, Himbeermarmelade, leichte Muffigkeit, Süße. Am Gaumen süß, Himbeer, etwas Säure (vergleichsweise wenig), leicht bitterer Abgang.

leebotton (235) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from single step health food shop Lancaster bought a year ago. Deep ruby red in my wide glass with an off pink light head. Aroma is acidic, raspberry, sweet and boozy. Yum. Rich, sweet fruity raspberry flavours with a hint of spicy esters. Mouthful is grand, all encompassing and almost silky. Very soft. Flavour is quite tart but balanced well by the sweetness and depth of texture. Surprisingly,I think this beer aged really well

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2014
from Bier-Bienne - cloudy reddish-brown beer under a long lasting pinkish foam; solid aroma of raspberries bubblegums; hugely sweet, medium-bodied and juicy; light herbal finish with strong notes of raspberries sweeties and lot of residual sugars

zach8270 (3579) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2014
(bottle - 500 ml) Pink pour with a lightly pink head. Light raspberry jam aroma. Rather sweet but a tad tart. Big raspberry flavor at the start with a lightly tart finish and a fruity but tart aftertaste.

Smells like raspberry jam. Texture is kind of watery, light foam, and very little fizz, kind of like drinking soda after it is almost (but clearly not) flat. Tastes like tart raspberry jam with natural sweetness. Aftertaste is similar with just a TINY hint of bitterness and is medium to long length.

330ml from The Real Ale Store, Newark. Clear purple color, short to medium head. Slightly musty aroma, but a taste of sweet raspberry, Could be sickly is I hadn’t shared the bottle.

Red color, pink head, horrible cough medicine taste. First and last try of fruit beer. I love Sam Smith but I'll stick with nut brown and taddy porter
