COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised;
Also known as Organic Raspberry Handcrafted Fruit Ale
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 Smith’s 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.

I haven’t found too many of the organic beers great yet, until this brew. With the Samuel Smith’s name, it’s 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.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 No fruit extract here! Samuel Smith’s 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. It’s a bit tart but it also has a lot of rich sweetness without being overbearing. Admittedly these beers usually aren’t my thing, but Samuel Smith’s take on the style is expertly done.

Quite wonderful aroma, appearance, and flavor. A truly fruity delight that has an appropriate medium tartness.

I tried this beer on June 7, 2010 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a transparent dark red colour with a 1" pinkisk-white cap that quickly dissipated. The aroma was fresh raspberries, sweet malt, and some yeasty hints. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was raspberries, sticky sweet, some tartness, some nutty malt, and a a bitter finish.

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.

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

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2011
330ml bottle from Cross Stobs Bottle Shop, Barrhead. Strong raspberry content, sweet with a well balanced ale background. As with many sweet fruit beers you wouldn’t want too many but this is very good.

Appearance: Pours out a dark reddish-hued body, fairly clear, and capped with a scant, near-white head. Smell: An aroma that’s part tartish, part sweetish, and scented of raspberry, as one might imagine, and, thankfully, without that oft medicinal quality I sometimes identify with raspberry brews. Taste: Sweetish and permissibly raspberry flavored, slightly tart, and with, perhaps, a perceived underlying breadiness. Low bitterness. Slight acidity. Finishes crisp. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Overall: Stood shoulder to shoulder with it’s cherry and strawberry based cousins for a tasting and, for me, it was the best of the Samuel Smith fruit bunch.
