3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Marron foncé avec une mousse moyenne ruby/beige. L’arôme sourdiné de framboise aigre. Le goût est principalement aigre avec un peu de sucre. Un peu de framboise, mais pas trop et c’est un peu artificiel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Held up to the light it’s a deep red, with a tall frothy head. Aroma is strong but pleasant raspberry. Smooth feel with a tart berry finish. The best fruit beer I’ve had to date.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 A nice package and not a whole lot of raspberries and yes it was a unique summer ( okay fall ) time treat. Page 290 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 199 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.
