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.

Single bottle purchased from Trackside Liqour in Medicine Hat, AB on 06/18/2011. Colour: Dark brown with medium soft and creamy head that shows a distinct stubborness. A slight pink tinge to it as well. Nose: Candied raspberries, very sugary...completely dominant. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. More raspberry and with a slightly sour kick, a touch of peach. Works itself into a slight cheese profile and fades sticky with stringent fruit. Interesting.

341ml bottle. Red hued brown, hazy, large white but rose tinged head. Subdued raspberries, not overly sweet, some malt and caramel. Start sweet, builds as the raspberry taste becomes more prominent. Decent body and partly buttery mouthfeel but there isn’t much going on. Have to say I like that its not too sweet, and that the raspberries don’t hit you over the head. Still its lacking complexity and depth.

Draught at Gambrinus. Thanks to Milos and Adil for getting this in. Very pretty dark amber/red hued liquid is topped with a thick foam leaving heavy lace. Interesting nose of fresh raspberries, kool-aid, English style hopping and earthy malts. A bit sweet, with nice acidity and mild bitterness to balance. Like easting a raspberry, but the beer has a metallic edge to it which I do not prefer. Very creamy finish, medium bodied, with nice lingering fruity aftertaste to it. This raspberry beer is for all seasons.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2011 Très bonne bière sucré. Le gout de la framboise est près de la perfection, pas trop sucré, mais juste assez pour bien le ressentir.

Super bière. Le goût de framboise n’est pas trop artificiel, l’arôme est intéressant et elle a une belle apparence. Pas facile à trouver cependant...

Très bonne bière! L’arôme de framboise n’est pas top prononcée elle est juste bien balancée et il en est de même pour le goût , miam!

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Cloudy deep red copper, frothy pink head fades. Tart berry aroma and taste, with a light malt/hop background. Great dessert beer, yummy and refreshing. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

I guess I can’t really say that it smells and teastes like raspberries...! I do need to specify that there is a good malt character to it, maybe a little nutty? Pours red as in not pale-reddish but red. Not my type but fun summer beer.

Pours a dark ruby red colour with a thin white head which has good retention sweet aroma of berries. Taste is sweetie berries and a light bubbly carbonation

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2010 Bottle. Hazed medium amber with a thick beige head. Jammy, sweet raspberry aroma with a flavor also dominated by raspberry on a light caramel malt background. Moderate tartness combines with the thick fruity sweetness to give an almost ketchupy impression. Light, slightly syrupy feel. Nothing terrible about this. It’s the sort of thing I might offer to someone who doesn’t typically drink beer. There’s much better raspberry beer out there, but this is good for a fruit beer at a standard six pack price.
