COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised;
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. This beer is blended with pure organic raspberry fruit juice and a previously cellared brew creating an unparalleled fruit ale. The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice.

Huge PINK head; leaves good lace. Without light, the liquor has ruby color. With light, it appears a clear, soda-pop red. Sweet fruity aroma, like a raspberry candy, not like the raw fruit. Light sourness in the background. Like a sweet framboise. There’s a touch of sourness, but it is the story of the berry here. Again, the flavor is closer to a raspberry candy. Would make a good dessert beer with cheese.

Pours red with thick pink head (cute!) and some lacing. Very strong aroma of raspberry and nothing else. Same with taste. Fizzy. Women will like this.

This a murky reddish-pink color with a foamy pink head. The nose smacks of raspberry. The taste is pretty basic sweet tart raspberry with barely perceivable malt. The carbonation is nice. This is a nice beer, a little too sweet for me. But I like Raspberries.

Bottle from jessup plaza. Poured a red color with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is lots of raspberry. Smells like a lindemans. Taste is similar with lots of raspberry notes and alittle sweetness on the back side. ehh

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 No fruit extract here! Samuel Smith’s Organic Raspberry takes the natural approach without any shortcuts. And I must say, the difference is clear. The raspberry taste in this beer is simply awesome. It’s a bit tart but it also has a lot of rich sweetness without being overbearing. Admittedly these beers usually aren’t my thing, but Samuel Smith’s take on the style is expertly done.

In bottle; great aroma of sweet raspberries. Poured a nice ruby red with fair head. Taste was medium bodied, quite sweet/sugary with strong raspberry notes. It was good, though not as good as many Belgium options

Starts out with sweet raspberries, and then finishes a bit tart. Nice flavor profile - even if it is a bit simplistic. Body is a bit thin and heavily carbonated, but overall, I enjoyed this. A solid enjoyable fruit beer. Very drinkable.

Pours cloudy ruby, full pale pink head. Maintains moderate lacing. Aroma is slightly malty but bursting with raspberry. Sweet as all get out, hint of sour towards the finish. Really tasty stuff, like the cherry one I could drink this on a hot summer day all day long.
