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 fruit beer poured a deep red colour with a nice, frothy, pink head. Scents include raspberries, hard fruit juice, champagne, wine and industrial adhesive. First sip was very raspberry flavoured. Quite tangy on the palate. Other flavours of sweet fruit juice and old books quite prodominant. Finish is like eating a plastic chair. No idea why the percentile is so high on this mess.

pour is dark translucent maroon. aroma is of pure delectable raspberry jam with twist of orange essence to boot. flavor is overpowering raspberry with any beer like elements stomped to death by a melee of fruit. palate is the star, while sticky an off note reminiscent nearly of raspberry seeds saves things to an extent.

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

scooterbub (1014) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - AUG 20, 2011
550 ml bottle. Pours a dark red color (looks like homemade wine) and has a nice, foamy, two inch pinkish head that slowly collapses. Taste is of fresh raspberry, malt, wood, wheat, nuts and grass. Similar aroma of fresh raspberries. Has a nice full body that coats the mouth and has a bit of tartness to it. Complex, very easy to drink and incredibly enjoyable. An excellent brew as it tastes like a beer and the fruit isnít artificial tasting.

Bottle. I had this one as a welcome drink, and as such itīs perfect. Nice looking red beer with very little head. Aroma sweet and lots of raspberry, so much summer hidden in one beer. Taste sweet prickling rapsberry.

beerisgoodforu (992) - NÝrresundby, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bordeau red color with a frothy pink head. Aroma is dominated by sweet and tart raspberries. Flavor is again the sweet and tart raspberries and taste of real raspberry jucie. It reminds me of old fashioned raspberry marmalade. The body is medium and slightly dry. Overall a solid raspberry ale, and the best of Samuel Smith fruit beers.

Nsanders (986) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Deep red, with a pink foamy head. Aroma of raspberry and alcohol. Not too sweet, good dried deep raspberry flavor. Better than expected on account of not being overly sweet. Light maltiness with a bit of a floral finish. The light body of this beer makes it seem like it would be a good summer drink.

I havenít found too many of the organic beers great yet, until this brew. With the Samuel Smithís name, itís worth the price. Smooth. clean, crisp, great fruit taste, great overall flavor for an organic beer. I would buy a case of this, great for the october and hoilday months to come.
