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.

dandeman (799) - 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.

BeerGolem (776) - 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.

pumpkinhead2 (774) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Bière rouge foncée (rouge framboise!), bien voilée, bonne effervescence, surmontée d’un col très légèrement rosé, un peu mince mais résistant. À mon étonnement, le nez est surtout en levure, davantage qu’en framboise! Arômes de levure (pain, voire pâte, et cheval/cuir) et ensuite de framboises très mûres, peut-être d’autres petits fruits, un peu de vin, voire de médicament. Pas très intéressant comme nez! En bouche, c’est un peu pétillant, un peu mousseux, mais c’est très mince au palais. Au goût, ça goûte les petits fruits trop mûres, la levure, la pâte à pain, le mauvais vin, le médicament… Un peu sucré, un peu acide, finale un peu amère, mauvaise intégration des saveurs, mauvais produit, bière décevante…

cmacklin (761) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, ruby-red colour with a small pink head. Sweet flavour of raspberry and a little malt with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2007
[bottle] Pours reddish brown color, with a short-lived pink head. Subtle fruit aroma. Tart, mildly acidic raspberry flavors mix with a somewhat weak malt background. Finish is very dry, with a touch of woodiness. Not really something I’d pick up again, even if it comes in a fancy box.

Frothmeister (708) - 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!

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2006
Bottled. Perhaps the dryest raspberry beer I’ve ever tasted, with a hint of hops in the finish. Nothing artificial here, but the distinct flavour of dark, seedy fruit -- it’s almost like you’re drinking the seeds. The proportions are a bit tentative and it smells a little funky, but the thin, smooth body combines nicely with the slightly tart fruitiness.

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

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Dark red cloudy poor with a pinkish thin head, good lacing. Aromas of raspberries, yogourt, tart and cherries. Klightly acid perfectly balancerd mouthfeel. Perfect carbonation and a nice creamy feel. Fresh raspberry taste... Very enjoyable and quite refreshing!

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2007
341 ml bottle - pours a muddy brown with red highlights and a pinkish head. Aroma is all framboises, but REAL raspberries, not extract. It has that slight earthiness that actual raspberry juice has. The flavour is strange.....the raspberry is less potent than in the aroma. There is also some hop presence, but that is kind of overshadowed by the raspberry. Abrupt finish. A good fruit beer, certainly one of the better ones I’ve tasted.
