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.

Rötliches Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch süß nach Himbeeren, etwas malzig, hopfig, so ist auch der Geschmack.

Tmoney99 (12755) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear reddish brown with a large off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good raspberry friut aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations and went well with my grilled cheese.

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.

imdownthepub (12170) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from S.H.Jones, Banbury. Tawny red with pinkish head. Sweet raspberry notes from the off, quite cordial like with a fuller malty body to carry it, the raspberry tastes a little forced, unnatural for some reason, like a child’s sweet. A little too much for me, but I get this with a lot of fruit beers.

5oo ml bottle poured a clear dark garnet with a lasting pinkish head. Aromas of raspberry and cookie. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of raspberry and shortcake with a crisp lingering raspberry finish.

Lubiere (11951) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2011
A burgundy red ale with a thin pinkish head. In aroma, raspberry candy drops, a bit like fruit flavoured Halls or Certs, some raspberry jam, not bad. In mouth, a sweet raspberry juice with light malted notes, a tad too much on the alcopop side, but nice in the summer. LCBO bottle.

Benzai (11865) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy reddish color, average sized off-white to pinkish head. Smell and taste are both quite sweet, sweet candy, a bit artificial actually. Nah, too sweet for me. And a bit artificial imo, or at least I get that association. Not a fan.
