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.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2011 Aroma of raspberries and flowers. Reminds me of a berry scented candle. The taste is dominated by sweet raspberries. Not much tartness. Not much beer flavor. Flat. No bitterness. Too fruity, even for a fruit beer. Itís a quality beverage, but I didnít enjoy it.

Raspberry in your face! I canít say Iím a fan. The aroma and flavor are completly overpowered by the fruit. Very, very sweet and acidic.

550ml bottel from the LCBO. Pours a beautiful burgandy red with a pink tinged head. No need to hold the glass to your nose, as the aroma of raspberries hits you as you pour. Nice tart raspberry flavour, and a hint of bitterness. Not as sweet as expected. I could have a couple at a time. My wife might not drink anything else all summer.

Dominant raspberry sour syrupy taste. Itís sweet but thatís balanced with citric acid. Has some bitterness. Refreshing. Medium carbonation. Reddish color, hazy.

Raspberry overpowers in the aroma. Dark red in color with the a off white head that vanishes rather quickly. Minimal lacing. Actually taste like store bought raspberries. Light on the sweet side and even a light bitter taste to it. Fizzy carbonation that leaves a oily film in my mouth. Not a fan of the organic beer, but was the first one i have ever tried.

bottled, pours deep/vibrant red with large pink head, aroma of strong citrus/raspberries, tastes exactly same as smell with lingering tart, hints of sweetness, not enough to sour your stomach :-)

From 22oz bottle to chalice. Pours dark red, very juicelike with very thin carbonated head. Obvious aroma of raspberry, s,all hint of barley. Taste is very fruity and carbonated. There is also a degree of sourness to the taste, very complimenting. Finish is fizzy with nice fruit touch. Interesting beer

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Proud and not ashamed, I love this beer. Not all the time, and not for every occasion, but maybe once every month this is ok to pull out and put a few down. The pour is rasberry candy red, small pinkish head. The flavor and mouthfeel is a strong rasberry flavor, nothing fake or vitamin like, full flavored rasberries. This beer is to drinkable, but also an ambiance brew, has to be the right time, but overall solid stuff if you like the style.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2010 lively aroma of ripe, tart raspberry. very inviting. the flavor was not quite as assertive, but pleasing nonetheless. a tad thin on the palate, but a highly drinkable, slightly tart, and nicely fruity ale. well done.

Nightsky (175) - Lutz, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Aroma: had a sweet and subtle fruit aroma Appearance: red, hazy, almost looks like a berry jam Taste: a medium sweet taste and slightly sour Palate: lively in carbonation astringent, and slightly sweet but astringent finish I would definitely get this beer again just to enjoy. It was simply fantastic, I wanted to share it with everyone, even though not everyone enjoys my tastes.
