Scent is overwhelmingly ripe raspberry which leads into the taste...raspberry with just a bit of bitter ale bite on the aftertaste. Love the tartness of the raspberry, balances out the ale beautifully. This is how a fruit beer is done

A must have for anyone whoís into fruit beer. Best tasting Iíve ever had. Subtle raspberry flavour, creamy suds, a good balance of bitterness. Another great beet from Sam Smith!

hazy deep purple with a large frothy light pink head. very similar appearance to the cherry. amazing raspberry and flower aroma with a distinct spicy herbalness. a floral, caramel, raspberry flavor with toasted malt finish. some hints of milk chocolate too. there something hugely appealing about this beer. I canít quite nail it down though. the caramel flavors mid palate?, milk chocolate?, the sweetness?, the flowery hints in the finish? everything perfectly infused with lush ripe raspberries. i never thought a fruit beer could be this good. wow! Iím a fan.

Poured deep ruby red with a sizeable pink head. Lovely pungent nose of fresh raspberries. Quite intense. Slightly hazy with light carbonation. Sweet taste heavy on the raspberries, which is good. A slightly bitter finish but not unpleasant. VERY drinkable. I could have chugged mine but held off. Medium body and a slightly creamy texture. Overall one of the best fruit beers I have ever had, pints down.

I had this at Global Brew. This was very fruity, string raspberry flavor. Pretty good. I would drink this again.

Iím a huge fan of raspberries, so naturally I got stoked to try this beer. And I certainly wasnít disappointed. First, itís a hell of a lot better than the Organic Strawberry. This is like night and day. This Organic Raspberry is so much better. I was first impressed after popping the cap and starting to pour the beer into my glass. I love the dark reddish color of the beer, with a small, but beautiful dark pink head. The head doesnít leave much lacing around the glass though. The nose is full of raspberries, with some hints of yeast and a slight note of dry red grapes. The body is bubbly, but not overcarbonated. Itís very comparable to a sparkling wine. The flavors are obviously dominated by the raspberries, but also include some grass, yeast and grapes. The finish is very sweet and fruity. I could definitely see myself pouring some of this over a huge slice of cheesecake. The Organic Raspberry is definitely one delicious beer!

Very delightful raspberry ale. Has a bit of a funny smell at first but the taste more than makes up for it. One of the better raspberry fruit beers.

This was about what I expected, but probably a bit better. Delicious raspberry aroma. A cloudy maroon color. Sweet and a bit sour. The raspberry flavor is good, not too overwhelming.

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.
