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.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2009
Bottle. It pours a hazy, red body under a a small, pinkish white head. Raspberry, sweetness, berry-like sourness and jam on the nose. A bit weak. The flavor is sweet and raspberry-ish, with some sourness. It lacks a bit, but is quite decent. Medium body with some acidity. Sweet, berryish finish. A quite decent one, even though it lacks something in both aroma and flavor. (090228)

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours clear red, some bubbles sticking to the insides of my glass. A bubbly pink head on top - that actually stays for a surprising amount of time. Aroma is sweet and fruity, good raspberries and a slight citric tartness behind it. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly dry, some subdued tartness and a good sweet touch of raspberries. These beers, like the old Melborne are great alternatives/entries to a world of lambic. Good appetizer drinks as well.

Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2011
Deep red with a small pink head. Strong raspberry aroma with a touch of mint and a hint of cellar. Dry and slightly tart flavour of raspberry, mint and wood, with a touch of sweet malt

A: The Raspberry beer pours a deep, dark, garnet color with hints of purple. There is a large pink head which is quite fluffy. S: You can definitely tell that this is a raspberry beer. The aroma is full of sweet raspberries. There is not much else to the nose other than the sweet, fruity smell. T: The taste is almost identical to the scent. The raspberry flavor is the star of the show and it is quite sweet. M: This is quite a fizzy beer, which works well for the style. It helps to cut down on the sweetness, as otherwise this would taste like syrup. D: The beer is a bit too sweet for my tastes. I enjoy a good amount of fruit in beers, but it tends to be more in lambic form so that the tartness helps to balance things out. I’m glad I shared this with my girlfriend as I don’t think I would have been able to drink it all.
