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.

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 (7649) - 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 (6382) - 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".

kathouse (1525) - Nevada, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Pink foam dissipates quickly on this murky reddish brown beer. Combination of bread and fruit permeate the nose. Big bubbles compliment the fresh raspberry and caramel. Nice.

megly (2) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2009 does not count
This beer has a strong smell and taste of raspberries. It is very sweet. The color is a gorgeous red (looks like cranberry juice). No head on this beer. The flavor is not terribly complex, but the beer is enjoyable. The thin consistency of this beer and the sweetness make me think it would be a good beer to drink on a hot day at a cookout.

Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear reddish brown with a large off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good raspberry friut aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations and went well with my grilled cheese.
