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.

sulawang (593) - 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.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Poured a murky ruby, brown. Aroma is redolent of raspberry liquer, maybe even that of the filled raspberry candies you find at Christmas. An odd mustiness is present that detracts. The flavor is almost devoid of any raspberry quality, but is not without merit. In fact, it is toasty with a bit of balancing acidity. Though it is only marginally better. Not my cup of tea.

Frothmeister (544) - 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!

Thinner than I expected. Raspberry undertones, some sour notes. Liking it more and more with each sip.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
Gorgeous tube packaging, 5% a/v from the LCBO Pours a very deep ruby red colour with a nice pink head. The nose is obviously raspberry but also some other berry scent too. The taste is just fantastic with a nice raspberry jam flavour (trust me, it works better then it sounds) with a nice light body and a great palate with an excellently long reminder of the sweet beer you’ve just drank. Ive always liked St Ambroise and this is definetly the best raspberry beer Ive ever had.

dandeman (484) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Évaluation no. 97 Mai 2011. Un nez tout en framboise avec de légères notes de houblon. De couleur rouge framboise, avec une mousse généreuse, onctueuse et de persistance moyenne. En bouche, la framboise est très présente et bien équilibrée avec les alcools. Une bière assez douce. Bonne bière d’été, rafraichissante. J’ai cependant préféré celle à la citrouille.

SuperTiti33 (446) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
Rouge2013 Un peu sucré goût typique mcauslan. Houblon floral. Sirop de framboise. Céréale.belle amertume qui persiste jusqu’à la fin. Simple mais bien.

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.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2006
Big brown head, brown/red color. Strong raspberry aroma. Wheaty at the beginning, then heavy raspberry taste comes in that feels like syrup. Too sweet. Medium body. And well, the raspberry is there for the finish too.
