This is a favorite at our house for an easy to drink relaxing beer. The raspberry flavor and aroma is strong but not overpowering.

Scent is overwhelmingly ripe raspberry which leads into the taste...raspberry with just a bit of bitter ale bite on the aftertaste. Love the tartness of the raspberry, balances out the ale beautifully. This is how a fruit beer is done

A must have for anyone whoís into fruit beer. Best tasting Iíve ever had. Subtle raspberry flavour, creamy suds, a good balance of bitterness. Another great beet from Sam Smith!

hazy deep purple with a large frothy light pink head. very similar appearance to the cherry. amazing raspberry and flower aroma with a distinct spicy herbalness. a floral, caramel, raspberry flavor with toasted malt finish. some hints of milk chocolate too. there something hugely appealing about this beer. I canít quite nail it down though. the caramel flavors mid palate?, milk chocolate?, the sweetness?, the flowery hints in the finish? everything perfectly infused with lush ripe raspberries. i never thought a fruit beer could be this good. wow! Iím a fan.

Poured deep ruby red with a sizeable pink head. Lovely pungent nose of fresh raspberries. Quite intense. Slightly hazy with light carbonation. Sweet taste heavy on the raspberries, which is good. A slightly bitter finish but not unpleasant. VERY drinkable. I could have chugged mine but held off. Medium body and a slightly creamy texture. Overall one of the best fruit beers I have ever had, pints down.

I had this at Global Brew. This was very fruity, string raspberry flavor. Pretty good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iím a huge fan of raspberries, so naturally I got stoked to try this beer. And I certainly wasnít disappointed. First, itís a hell of a lot better than the Organic Strawberry. This is like night and day. This Organic Raspberry is so much better. I was first impressed after popping the cap and starting to pour the beer into my glass. I love the dark reddish color of the beer, with a small, but beautiful dark pink head. The head doesnít leave much lacing around the glass though. The nose is full of raspberries, with some hints of yeast and a slight note of dry red grapes. The body is bubbly, but not overcarbonated. Itís very comparable to a sparkling wine. The flavors are obviously dominated by the raspberries, but also include some grass, yeast and grapes. The finish is very sweet and fruity. I could definitely see myself pouring some of this over a huge slice of cheesecake. The Organic Raspberry is definitely one delicious beer!

Very delightful raspberry ale. Has a bit of a funny smell at first but the taste more than makes up for it. One of the better raspberry fruit beers.

Smells like raspberry jam. Texture is kind of watery, light foam, and very little fizz, kind of like drinking soda after it is almost (but clearly not) flat. Tastes like tart raspberry jam with natural sweetness. Aftertaste is similar with just a TINY hint of bitterness and is medium to long length.
