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. 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.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 No fruit extract here! Samuel Smithís 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. Itís a bit tart but it also has a lot of rich sweetness without being overbearing. Admittedly these beers usually arenít my thing, but Samuel Smithís take on the style is expertly done.

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.

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

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.

Cloudy ruby red complexion with small carbonation and slight bubbly pinkish head. Raspberry, apple and cherry to the nose with notes of vanilla and cedar. flavor is sweet, tart and deliciously dry finish. mouthfeel is lightly effervescent and lively, leaving a medium lasting tart aftertaste. Delicious brew. Thank you Samuel Smith.

red tinged pour with RED tinged head! - aromas of raspberry syrup - taste like carbonated melted raspberry sherbet with a little alcohol mixed in - I guess I would normally not like a raspberry íbeerí with this much fruit but itís not terrible

Bottle. Clear, brilliant, deep red body with a fizzy, but paradoxically clingy pink head. Sweet, rich, candied raspberry aroma. Flavor is expectedly dominated by raspberry, but there are light acidic (in a pleasant way) undertones from the carbonation. Faint wheaty malt flavor is barely perceptible. Light body, effervescent carbonation. Sweet flavors, but the body is thankfully fairly dry with just a little lingering sugar and raspberry flavor. Overall a solid fruit beer!
