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.

Botella. Clear pit pale amber-red colour with a medium mostly diminishing pinkish head. Malty Raspberry aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a mild sourness with cherry malt and a pleasant soft sweetness.

marcus (6493) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This dark red beer poured into a flute with a modest pink head and an intense raspberry aroma. If you like raspberries, itís pretty good, since thatís about all you can taste. Itís refreshing and tasty, but itís not really beer.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear reddish with a lightly pink head. Intense raspberry aroma. Medium body, sweet’n’sour raspberry flavour - again very intense which reveals artificial additives. Finishes dry. 140908

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle. High creamy and lasting pink flavor. Slightly hazy ruby body. Very sweet raspberry aroma. Flavor also sweet raspbarries but with a tiny bit of bitterness that suits it. Unfortunately it is somewhat plastic and artificial. Low carbonation, long sweet aftertaste.

This is a real take it or leave it kind of deal for me. Raspberry all over the place here. Not enough ale to balance, overall enjoyable but nothing shines through the sweetness. 90% wine cooler, 10% ale. Thank You samuel smith. 2009 16 oz.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2010
Purply pink with some baby pink head. Fully sweet slush puppy fruitiness. A tiny bit of tartness amongst the sweet syrupy fruit, light malty cereals are there but really play second fiddle. Fun but a bit childish.

mbgrayson (534) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Aroma is raspberry, light reddish- amber color. Light pink head. Fairly mild raspberry taste, hints of malt. Better than some fruit beer, but not my favorite style.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Pours red with thick pink head (cute!) and some lacing. Very strong aroma of raspberry and nothing else. Same with taste. Fizzy. Women will like this.

(bottle) red-brown. Lots of raspberry aroma. Lots of raspberry flavor. Didnít have the sourness of a lambic, but still reasonably tart. Iím just not a fruit beer person - had this at a tasting.

bottle. Pours deep cloudy red color with pink fizzy head. Aroma of raspberry, definitely with a kind of jammy, concentrated jelly aspect to it, also a tart, fresh aspect. Wasnít expecting much of this one after the strawberry offering but this is not bad. At first you get a very sweet, jelly like raspberry flavor, with sweet biscuit, but then the finish is somewhat tart, raspberry throughout. Again, this was not bad, better than the strawberry, but there is some kind of sweetness that tastes exactly the same as in the strawberry, a cloying, sugary jelly like flavor that I donít particularly care for. Wonít be coming back to this one, rather drink a real lambic.
