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.

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.

This dark red beer poured into a flute with a modest pink head and an intense raspberry aroma. If you like raspberries, it’s pretty good, since that’s about all you can taste. It’s refreshing and tasty, but it’s not really beer.

HighlanderOne (1024) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Sampled from my wife’s glass. Raspberry aroma. Pours like black cherry soda. Big sour raspberry flavor, big bubbles, somewhat astringent. Gets points for flavor, but not that great overall.

AshtonMcCobb (2938) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours an almost opaque cherry red with a very generous head which is pink and lacey. The nose has raspberries and strangely cherries. The taste has creamy raspeberries. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture but not refreshing enough on the end - it lacks the acidity of a Belgian fruit beer. Overall, pretty good but a bit sickening after a while.

Lubiere (10464) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2011
A burgundy red ale with a thin pinkish head. In aroma, raspberry candy drops, a bit like fruit flavoured Halls or Certs, some raspberry jam, not bad. In mouth, a sweet raspberry juice with light malted notes, a tad too much on the alcopop side, but nice in the summer. LCBO bottle.

This beer was okay. The raspberry seemed to come in bursts, and conflict with, rather than blend with or complement, the typical ale flavors. Not my favorite fruit beer, or my favorite Sam Smith brew

36cl, organic English brew, with raspberries, from Haus der 131 Biere Hamburg, not complex sweet fruit brew, sweet/fruity and slightly sour, yet balanced, clear, small head, simple brew

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from S.H.Jones, Banbury. Tawny red with pinkish head. Sweet raspberry notes from the off, quite cordial like with a fuller malty body to carry it, the raspberry tastes a little forced, unnatural for some reason, like a child’s sweet. A little too much for me, but I get this with a lot of fruit beers.

Sour raspberry aroma, full raspberry flavor, slight sour note at the end. One of the best fruit beers I have had because the flavor is so full.

Skinnyviking (7235) - 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.
