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.

The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice.

Lowe1983 (1517) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Pours a reddish-amber color with a pink head. Aroma is sweet of caramel malts and raspberries mostly. Tart raspberry flavor and some sugar dominate the flavor. Better than the cherry but it’s still not what I was hoping for.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2010
2010-09-26. Lightly hazy dark red body with a modest creamy pink-beige head. 3+ Flavour is quite sweet with a candyish feeling fruity raspberry character, bit jammy, tart raspberry in the finish. The underlying malt of the beer is largely overshadowed by the fruit. 6+ Aroma is similar, fruity raspberry has slight floral/perfume nuances to the fruit. 6+ Smooth medium bodied palate is almost syrupy. Not unpleasant but quite sweet and seems more appropriate to a fruit smoothie than a beer! Bottle from the LCBO

anderson01 (328) - Idaho, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Raspberry overpowers in the aroma. Dark red in color with the a off white head that vanishes rather quickly. Minimal lacing. Actually taste like store bought raspberries. Light on the sweet side and even a light bitter taste to it. Fizzy carbonation that leaves a oily film in my mouth. Not a fan of the organic beer, but was the first one i have ever tried.

Red colour with a short lasting white head. Aroma is sweet and raspberry. Flavor is very sweet raspberry and syrup notes. The body is oily-creamy and light to medium strong with a soft carbonation.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2011
355 ml bottle @ Konttori, Tampere.
Pours a dark red colour with a small white head. Aroma of fresh raspberries with some leaves. Flavour of sweet raspberries, syrup, sugar and even some wet wood notes. Medium bodied with a bit sticky mouthfeel and a sweet, sugary, raspberry finish. A bit too sugary for me just like the cherry version, but this actually has some taste.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
355 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 5.1%. Deep red colour, large pink head. Strong aroma of ripe raspberries and raspberry jam. The sweet and sour flavour has loads of raspberry extract / concentrate throughout, slightly astringent finish, with a hint of hops. Certainly not my everyday beer, but drinkable on a day you’re in for "something completely different".
