1Pt. 2.7 FL OZ bottle from the LCBO. Pours a very obvious deep red colored beverage, especially noticeable in the head of the beer which is a very noticeable pink color from all the red in the beer. Smells like a fresh raspberry. Also tastes like one, somewhat unfortunately. Some other fruit beers, say ones by St-Ambroise or so on, have been pleasantly surprising when they actually have a strong, malty, or hoppy, beer taste to them. Having a great aroma of fruit but a taste of good beer is a wicked combo, but when its fruit+fruit+more fruit.. Itís too much. And I think this beer is too much.

beerisgoodforu (992) - NÝrresundby, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bordeau red color with a frothy pink head. Aroma is dominated by sweet and tart raspberries. Flavor is again the sweet and tart raspberries and taste of real raspberry jucie. It reminds me of old fashioned raspberry marmalade. The body is medium and slightly dry. Overall a solid raspberry ale, and the best of Samuel Smith fruit beers.

Raspberry in your face! I canít say Iím a fan. The aroma and flavor are completly overpowered by the fruit. Very, very sweet and acidic.

ContemplateBeer (1716) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Aroma: Fresh raspberries, not overly tart and not overly sweet; maybe a touch of mint. The base beer is completely masked. Appearance: Nearly opaque raspberry red with a pink tinted head. Flavor: Raspberry with some slight tartness; doesnít seem to be sweetened. Simple and pure. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Simple, clean fruit beer thatís worth a try.
