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.

Huge raspberry aroma, dark pink/auburn, with a small pink head. Taste is the essence of raspbery, sweet and syrupy. Pretty good. Thank You Very Much Andrew!

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.

Le liquide a une couleur brune rougeâtre. Présence d’une bonne tête mousseuse. Les arômes sont frais et occupent un bon espace avec un mélange de pulpe de framboise et de houblons à la St-Ambroise. Au goût, très estival avec des fruits mi-sucrés, certainement des grains maltés et une amertume délicate. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen et démontre une texture crémeuse. Arrière-goût fruité et mi-amer.

nice aroma of raspberry, but its also got some maltiness in there. Wow, the raspberry stick in the flavour but i can still tatse the beer. AMazing balance between both beer and fruit flvaours i can pick ou the malt and the fruit, and they mingle very well together. very well done.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. So frambozy like. Like raspberry frozen and then unfrozen. Frambozen. I’m pissed

JulienHuxley (2988) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2010
Bottle (latest release). Brown pour with some reddish reflections. Aroma is almsot all raspberry, with a little something grassy/herbal too. Taste is quite sweet, raspberry jam but with a dry herbal finish. The dry palate keeps it from being cloyingly sweet. Decent fruit beer, I was pleasantly surprised.

Eructoblaster (2981) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle. Nice brown/ruby body topped with a lasting beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with enjoyable raspberry notes. Taste is well balanced but lacks complexity. It ends with a decent sour finish. This is a quite honest fruit beer.

Gorbalev (2912) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
Bottles shared with the regular crew including MDS, courtesy of blankboy and myself. Thin red, small pink head. Faint berry aroma, mild. Faint berry taste, rather artificial. Thin. Mediocre at best, really didn’t leave much of an impression. Not sure why they have to taint the St. Ambroise name with a beer like this.
