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.

HeistAlmighty (1126) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a deep, unfiltered, velvet red with a large, fluffy, pink head. Aroma is nice with some natural raspberry jam sweetness and tartness. Something about the taste seemed a little off, hops too earthy or something metallic? Body is light and dry. Overall, looked good, smelled good, but the taste didn’t come together. Raspberry taste doesn’t come through and very little beer here.

Lorsque j’ai bue cette bière, c’était parce que j’avais envie d’un produit estival, qu’il faisait très chaud et quoi de mieux bière aux framboises? Alors, la couleur me charme en partant, elle est rouge-rosée, opaque, coiffée d’une mousse rose. Les odeurs sont tout en framboise, comme si je humais une barquette dudit fruit où l’on retrouve une senteur acidulée. Diantre! Ça goûte autant que ça sent et ça reste une bière. Une amertume et une acidité forme l’arrière-goût. C,est exactement ce que je voulais en ce jour de juin et j’en suis heureux. (270-170612)

Minderbinder (1773) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours reddish with low pinky head. Aroma is of raspberries. Taste is of raspberries. Sligth acidity and bitterness. Balance not too shabby. A fair fruit beer.

tom10101 (2747) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012 Bottle 341 ml. Dark brown/red with a medium white with pink highlights head. Some lacing. Aroma of raspberries and slight (very slight) tartness. Taste of red fruits (where the fresh raspberries are gone?) and malt. Slight acidic aftertaste which I don’t like. Refreshing but lack of complexity and nothing really stand out in this beer.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark pink with a purple-pink head. Smells like raspberries. Tastes like sweet cereals, raspberries and malt. Light touch of bitterness in the finish, along with fruity acidity. Light-bodied. Nice summer beer.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Dark red almost purple. Foamy pink head. Aroma is raspberry jam, sour candy, sour milk, slightly soapy. Oily and light. The sour overripe fruit favours overshadow much else. Not very complex but quite refreshing.

BeerGolem (668) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle 341 ml. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a nice froathy pink head. Great lacing. Aroma: overwhelmingly raspberries, maybe some other red fruits. Taste: once more, overwhelmingly raspberries. Mostly sour, with slight sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied. Some carbonation. Overall, it is an interesting beer, refreshing and highly drinkable. Ideal for hot summer afternoons. Problem is its general lack of balance.

Gethinbeer (2149) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
Deep mahogany amber colour with a frothy dirty pink head. Sweet raspberry flavour and aroma. Pleasant bitterness. Nice refreshing tasty brew.

sulawang (615) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
pours cloudy brownish/red with a decent dissipating head, layer of retention, some sticky lacing, some slow-moving CO2 streams near the surface. Fruity red raspberries on the nose. Burst of 4/10 sweet aromatic red raspberries initially, transitions into 5/10-level sourness that isn’t overpowering but balanced with brown sugar malts, a silky creamy mouthfeel in the mids, finishing with a minor tartness and 6/10-level caramel sweetness & bitterness. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, good carry, good drinkability. The finish ends a little rough in the mouth.

Bottle - Murky dark pink/brown. Pale pink head. Thin to medium body. Medium carbonation. Raspberries not overly dominant. Some bitterness.
