Samuel Smithís Organic Raspberry Ale has a medium, fizzy-ish, pink head, a clear, ruby red appearance, and low-level lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong raspberry juice with bread. Taste is a one-two punch of acidic & sweet raspberry juice and bready malt. Bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is medium, and Samuel Smithís Organic Raspberry Ale finishes dry and highly drinkable. RJT

a quality brew company knows how to produce beer. and the raspberry from samuel smith is fruity, beery enough and genuine in both respects. bit of sharp tang balanced with sugar the beer has smooth and syrupy components. sampled at monmouth racetrack nj beer fest.

330ml bottle - thanks Marduk
Wohhh, sweet raspberry aroma, perfumey, like a tartís hankercheif. Red, small head. Thin palate, bit of fizz. Crazy sweet body, sharply citrussy to cut through the sugars. Stickyish finish. Sweet and juicy, but not what Iím after.

simongladding (10) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Nice raspberry aroma. Dark pink, not much of a head. Tart raspberry flavour, canít pick out much of the underlying beer flavour. Nice beer to experiment matching with sweet food.

JorgeLee (1679) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2015
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 didnít have any Belgian fruit beers worthy of the name, and it looks like bright pink fruit juice! But itís nice, tart raspberries with a healthy dose of sweetness. It may not have the complexity of a lambic-based framboise but itís pretty tasty.

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.

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.
