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 Smithís 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.

Pours a cloudy dark brown with hints of red and a small quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of raspberries (obviously). The flavor of sweet and tart raspberries and a very slight hint of wheat.

I took a look at the ratings, and I must say, I was flumoxed. Given what it is itís a great brew in my opinion. The listing notes it is a fruit beer, and not a lambic which is a notable difference. The aroma is moderately noticeable fresh raspberry fruit, full of sweet fruit esters, not much tartness or yeast shine through. The brew is a hazy reddish color with a soft pink to color. The taste is sweet raspberry fruit, along with a soft tartness. The sweetnesss of the beer can not be denied, but itís great almost like a raspberry soda, but a beer. Taste is natural and reminds me of cherry soda, but the glory of it all itís an excellent beer. Palate is light to medium bodied, high sparkly carbonation and a quick and clean finish. Probaly the best fruit beer Iíve had. I really enjoyed it, would buy a case for the ladies, and for myself

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2010
500 ml bottle - pours dark, clear reddish/brown with thick, pinkish head. Aroma chalky, fruity, musty, raspberry seed. Flavour overwhelmingly raspberry juice. Some sweet malt follows. Overall, too sweet, too raspberryey. Heh. Decent enough, glad to have tried, will not buy again.

Taste from a bomber. Flavor is very sweet and raspberry. Almost no beer or alcohol flavor. Amazed that this was over 5 abv. Almost tastes like candy.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
650ml Bottle: Pours an almost dark ruby copper colour, frothy and bubbly pink head. Incredibly robust aroma of raspberries, acidic, sweet and sour. Very much like a jam. Smooth drinking, almost cloyingly sweet and tongue-clinging. Strong raspberry flavour, bready, extremely light hopping. Like drinking a raspberry tart. As far as fruit beers go, heck, this ainít bad.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle into glass, deep red pour with a big pink head. Smells like raspberry preserves or ice cream. Taste is is raspberry juice with some tartness and a bit of an earthy finish. Too sweet, not enough ale.

bunget (606) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
550ml bottle. Pours a beautiful dark ruby body, medium pink head with decent retention. Sweet aroma of raspberries, bubblegum and cough syrup, wheat hints somewhere in the backstage, everything else is overpowered by the berries. Surprisingly sour taste upfront, raspberries, lemon juice and wheat. Medium carbonation.

mbgrayson (601) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Aroma is raspberry, light reddish- amber color. Light pink head. Fairly mild raspberry taste, hints of malt. Better than some fruit beer, but not my favorite style.

Personal favorite. Reddish beer with a strong raspberry flavor, some bitterness in the aftertaste.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - AUG 21, 2009
clear rose, pinkish fizzy head. sweet raspberry syrup aroma, with a bit of pine resin and malt underneath. hits the tongue very sweet, stays fruity, but ends slightly more balanced and leaves a long dry raspberry finish. medium body, a bit undercarbonated, almost cloying, but not quite.
