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.

A must have for anyone who’s into fruit beer. Best tasting I’ve ever had. Subtle raspberry flavour, creamy suds, a good balance of bitterness. Another great beet from Sam Smith!

ManVsBeer (8489) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle from Keelham Farm Shop, Thornton. Deeper clear red with a thin head. The raspberry is light, slightly tangy, with a light sweetness in taste, and a light sourness in its aftertaste.

Kauge (1556) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle from Sip in Tallinn (€ 4.20). BB Dec 2016. Pours expectedly pinkish-purplish red; nice white head with shade of pink. Good lace. The aroma is of extremely lovely raspberry jam - and I love raspberry jam! The cane sugar adds a rather strong touch of candy-like effect but that’s on a tolerable level. Tastes as nice, the raspberry is soft and ripe, jammy and sugary sweet. Extremely soft on the palate with very fine carbonation. Becomes more and more candy-like as it warms, but despite that I’m really loving this (perhaps especially after an unusually sporty day).

77ships (7635) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle shared. BBF 04/2017. Deep red ruby amber, little white head. Nose is extremely sweet artificial cheap raspberry jam, low metallic qualities. Taste is low metallic, extremely sweet artificial raspberry jam, chemical, candy,.. massively sweet cheap jam & sugar body. For an extremely sweet fruit beer, this is actually pretty decent, huge candy & sweet jam but in a passable fashion.

Purple red coloured beer, no head. Low carbonation. Aroma is sweet and rasberry. Taste is fruity, too sweet for me.Easy drinkable fruit beer, but reminds me cider.

EdKing (2374) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle from Whole Food Market - Kensington. Pours clear deep reddish to pink, medium white foam head. Nose is very sweep, syrupy raspberry, fresh sour raspberry. Taste is very cloying, almost to the point of being medicinal. Raspberry syrupy, sugary sweetness, cough medicine, fresh rasperry, slight sour. Way too cloying for me.

Raspberry fruit beer… and when if it got warm I wouldnt drink much more. In memoriam Prince. Anyway…. Bottle at All Saints Brewery, Stamford. Reddish black-pudding brown with a tidy pinkish head. Less fruit in the aroma than I’d have expected. There is however a massive biscuity malty note with berry jam at best a side order and at worst an afterthought. The taste is raspberry-licious without being overpowering. Stodgy jammie dodger aftertaste. Pretty good if somewhat inconsequential.
