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.

rodenbach99 (3244) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
Bouteille de 341ml. Cette bière au concentré de jus de framboise est d’une robe orange-foncée et rouge. La mousse est épaisse et d’une belle couleur beige. Au nez elle est discrète et laisse percevoir quelques petites arômes de framboise. En bouche cette bière n’est pas légère, elle a une bonne amertume. Ce n’est pas du jus d’été.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2010
341 ml bottle. pours a very dark red, almost brown, with an off white head that leaves tons of lacing. bouquet is all raspberries, very nice aroma. the taste is dominated by raspberry as well, withsome noticeable hops. the mouthfeel is where this beer loses some points. it’s thin, and watery. must be very refreshing on a hot summer day though.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a ruby body with a thin pink head. Fresh raspberries, some light grain, hints of berries and light apple tones. Sweet with sugar notes, aroma is better than the flavor, comes across more thin and sweet with a light dry drying finish, mildly tart. Decent ale.

thewombat (112) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Dark Pinkish-tinted pour. Smells good, sweet/sour raspberry aroma, Smells of hops as well. Little/no head. Sour fruit taste, carbonated finish, watery thinner than preferred mouthfeel. Not a very good framboise, but still acceptable.

BuckeyeSammy (543) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Thinner than I expected. Raspberry undertones, some sour notes. Liking it more and more with each sip.

presario (4695) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle. White head and lacing. Dark red-copper. Dark aroma of dried raspberries. Tastes like beer and raspberries. Lots of sourness sinks into the gums. More fruit taste than extract and syrup.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2008
Pours a watery red with no head & some minimal lacing. Aroma is leafy raspberry, very thin and green. Tastes equally watery and thin, bitter and tea-like, more like it was made from the leaves of a raspberry plant than the actual berries themselves. Thin with passable carb. Weak and uninteresting.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
[1239-20080330] 341mL bottle. Strong tart raspberry cordial aroma with thick syrup wet wood notes. Slightly hazy, dark red wine body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Bitter raspberry brambles flavour. Medium body. Interesting but brash and unrefined.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2008
12 oz bottle in a nice external container (probably why I bought it). Pours a doughy hazy dull reddish with a violet hint and thin diminsihing head. Aroma is initially very juicy, and has a slight character you get from NG RT, but it fades and you realize it isnt as full or intesne- has some other apple hints and some grassiness to it as well. Flavor starts off nice with a nice tart raspberry and very fruit juicy, then fades, gets a bit papery, yeasty, doughy, with some light cracker malts in the backbone, and finishes very dull and a slight citric acid finish whcih doesnt seem like it belongs. Meh.
