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.

muzzlehatch (4464) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Sampled draught at the Mondial de la Bière in Montreal, 2006. Dark purple-red in color, with little retained head and no lacing....nicely balanced sweet-sharp fruity nose, hints of biscuit, but very simple if not pedestrian overall....the body is tart and sour predominantly, rather thin and lacking in a real malt background but for a touch of dry cookie dough....becomes pretty jammy and syrupy towards the finish, and a nasty metallic edginess intrudes on the otherwise tolerable finish, becoming really harsh as the sample warms to cellar temp....I had trouble finishing this, what a bummer from this fine brewery.

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.

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.

Eructoblaster (3751) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3675) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
341 mL bottle from La Trappe à Fromage, served at cellar temp from a tulip glass. FE 23/07

App.: clear red-pink with brown hues (like oxidized cranberry juice), decent pinkish-tan head. Aroma: fresh, juicy raspberries, raspberry jam, some resinous and piney hops, peppery, kinda sharp and green. Palate: thick and syrupy, fine, soft carbonation. Flav.: raspberry jam, tart, fresh raspberries, a bit metallic, a touch bitter, raspberry aftertaste, a touch of malt (hints of caramel, and roasted characters).

Not spectacular, but decent beer for $3.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2006
Pours a clear ruby color with a medium but diminishing pink bubbly head. Aroma of tart raspberries and mild sweetness. The flavor is like the aroma, tart rapsberries and sweetness, the malt is also present. The body is light and liquorous and the carbonation is medium. It’s not bad but gets kind of boring after a while.

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

hawthorne00 (3418) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle, 10C. Cloudy deep red with a large pink creamy head. Smells of fresh raspberries and that’s about it. Tastes of them too with their sweetness and slight hairy tartness. There’s some bitterness too and a little dough in the mouthfeel. Quite high carbonation. Straightforward, refreshing, nicely balanced.
