COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behind its magnificent ruby-red colour, St. Ambroise Raspberry Ale reveals its refreshing charm from the moment you encounter its bouquet and flavour. Made with fresh raspberries and choice sun-ripened hops, it gently engages your tastebuds in a delicious explosion of flavours. Its delicate fruit aromas marry perfectly with the pleasant hop character typical of all St-Ambroise ales. Brewed in Quebec, just once a year, it's a unique summertime treat.

Bien rouge, coiffée d’une mousse rose qui semble onctueuse, elle émet des notes fruitées surtout, mais aussi de céréales. Les fruits ont aussi préséance en bouche, mais une finale de grains blonds est bien perceptible en finale, après une longue parade de saveurs de framboises, de petits fruits rouges variés, et de sucres légèrement amers. C’est une redoutable bière de soif, pas trop acidulée, qui goûte les vraies framboises tout en étant équilibrée ; sans être incontournable, elle est très appréciée sous un soleil de plomb.

Un peu trop vieile je crois... L’arrière-goût est différent de ce dont je me souviens de dégustations antérieures. Meilleure chance la prochaine fois ;-)

Bouteille 341ml. de couleur brune-rouge et légèrement voilée. Nez fruité (framboises légèrement acides, léger sirop de framboises, traces de cerises sûres), léger de malt sucré (notes de caramel) avec des traces de houblon. Moyennement ronde en bouche et assez pétillante avec une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes sirupeuses fruitées. Goût fruité légèrement sûr et moyennement sucré (framboises naturelles, traces de cerises sûres) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût fruité plus sucré (léger de sirop de framboise) avec un fond de malt du genre caramel doux et en finale, l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral avec un goût fruité aux notes aigres (framboises). (2006)

Marron foncé avec une mousse moyenne ruby/beige. L’arôme sourdiné de framboise aigre. Le goût est principalement aigre avec un peu de sucre. Un peu de framboise, mais pas trop et c’est un peu artificiel.

Bottle acquired a long time ago (best before February 28, 2013). Pours with a hazed, deep blood hued body with a foamy, slightly pink tinted head. Excellent lace and retention. Aromas are of jammy raspberry, really grainy, bready, wheat like, some grassy hop notes. Mostly toasted and fruity flavors. A touch of artificial sweetener like aroma (I’m not saying that was used, but it smells slightly sweet and chemically). Flavors are quite a bit more bitter than I was expecting. Some floral honey notes, toasty baked bread and of course raspberries. Decently dry and balanced and to be honest, not nearly as sweet or otherwise bad as I was expecting. Medium to fuller, slightly creamy carbonation. Decent body, a bit tannic. Overall bitter with a neutral finish.

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a hazy sort of watery Clamato coloured red, with a pink/beige head. For unknown reasons there is quite a bit of burnt marshmallow on the nose, with fresh raspberries, floral notes, and a little dough. The taste is heavy on raspberry juice, faint lemon, followed by just enough hops to let you know they’re present, and some malt and mineral notes in the finish. The presence of the hops makes this for me. It’s not just all raspberry. A bit of a surprise here. Pretty decent stuff!

Pours a cloudy vibrant red accompanied with a small pinkish head. Smells sour, very little malt characteristic. Tastes closest to a raspberry than any other beer I’ve had with noticeable carbonation.
