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.

Bottle from the LCBO in fancy and expensive packaging. I poured it into a champagne flute because I was feeling pretentious, and it looked fantastic! Rocky white head and a cloudy dark pink body underneath. The aroma definitely contained raspberries, but I also thought I smelled blackberries. Either way, it was exceedingly fresh. Thick raspberry taste, married to a light carbonated body. I imagine that this is very much a summer beer because of its freshness, and lack of complexity. A good thirst quencher and a good beer.

Normally I wouldn’t bother giving a fruit beer a 2nd look, especially at 4 bucks. But for some reason I decided to give er a try and was not disspaointed. Not a sweet or sour beer by any means, there is a pleasant berry tartness that really quenches a thirst. Also, impressive deep red colour with short lasting head...mild berry aroma. Overpriced but a winner nonetheless.

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Liquide rouge/rubis avec une épaisse mousse rose qui descend à un doigt en laissant peu de dentelle sur le verre. La framboise sucrée domine à l’odorat autant qu’au goût avec une finition surette assez plaisante. On ne peut parler de houblon...on n’en ressent pas dans ce breuvage qui ressemble plus à un punch fruité qu’à une bière. Elle plaira surement aux ’matantes’ en accompagnement de salades fruités ou desserts aux framboises durant les journées chaudes d’été.

Couleur rosé. Saveur Sucré un peu. Houblon floral. Sirop de framboise et de éréale. Belle amertume qui se complète avec la légère acidité.

Aroma is a sweet raspberry (as expected). Pours with a slightly pink tinge. Flavour is undeniably raspberry, but the tartness of the raspberry mixes a bit confusingly with the bitterness of the beer. Overall, not a bad summer beer, but for a fruit beer, would prefer a more champagne-like feel and taste like Mort Subite.

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.

Belle couleur mais rien à voir avec la DDC. Un peu sûr avec une touche fruité mais combien rafraîchissante

Maltybones (62) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2007
341ml bottle. Thick pink foam head, mild carbonation and dark maroon in colour. No mistaking the raspberry in the aroma, overpowering everything else that might be in there. Taste is more complex, starting off very sweet but transitions into mild sweet malts with a tart, subtle hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is full and creamy due to the carbonation. Not a bad summer beer.

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!
