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.

Bottle - plum red with a light pink fizzy head. Okay retention and some weak lace. Aroma of raspberry juice, wild flowers, grass. Taste is of raspberries, grass, earth, light tartness and a little soil in the finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Looks like sparkling cranberry juice. With a pink frothy head that dissipates quickly. The flavour is much more juice than beer. Quite refreshing but a lack of alcohol flavour.

Bottle from Whole Foods Kensington. Bright pink, some pinkish head with decent carbonation. I so wanted to hate this, bought it for cooking as they didn’t have any Belgian fruit beers worthy of the name, and it looks like bright pink fruit juice! But it’s nice, tart raspberries with a healthy dose of sweetness. It may not have the complexity of a lambic-based framboise but it’s pretty tasty.

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy reddish color, average sized off-white to pinkish head. Smell and taste are both quite sweet, sweet candy, a bit artificial actually. Nah, too sweet for me. And a bit artificial imo, or at least I get that association. Not a fan.

Pours a clear lovely dark garnet. World class head volume, retention and lacing. Outstanding rich nose of sweet raspberry over a light biscuit. Light medium body with a smooth texture that has creamy moments due to the superb carbonation. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescence from the middle on. The flavor profile is very good, but is a bit short in intensity when compared to their cherry variant. Complexity and balance are good. It begins with slightly sweet raspberry that approaches tart in the middle. A hint of herbal hops emerge in the middle over a soda like sweetness undertone. The finish is a slow effervescent fade of slightly tart raspberry over a residual biscuit sweetness.

Pour is a clear bright red with a huge pink head. Aroma is a nice fresh blast of raspberry. Flavor is a sweet raspberry, kind of like drinking some liquefied raspberry jam. Finish is a big tart but also sweet at the same time. This was decent, a bit sweet but still decent.
