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.

On tap at Volo. Pours a brownish ruby red with large pink head and some lacing. Aroma is fresh tart raspberries with a subtle earthiness. Taste is same although a little more watery than expected. Fine carbonation. Not my favourite McAuslan beer but decent.

Reynolds314 (3328) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Pours a ruby red/mohagony color. Aroma is fresh raspberries and bread. Taste is like fake candy raspberries or candles. Not my favorite fruit beer by a long shot but it wasnt awful.

pintbypint (3328) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
341ml brown bottle. Pinkish brown out of the bottle. Head is quite thick and foamy and also has a slight pinky tint to it. Great lacing Hazy unclear appearance. Sweet nose, Candyish like Swedish berry candy. Taste was more tart than expected. Minimal fruit sweetness. Tart finish that lingers for a short while. Body is light, active spritzy carbonation. Good thirst quencher, a good summer drink.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. de couleur brune-rouge et légèrement voilée. Nez fruité (framboises légèrement acides, léger sirop de framboises, traces de cerises sûres), léger de malt sucré (notes de caramel) avec des traces de houblon. Moyennement ronde en bouche et assez pétillante avec une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes sirupeuses fruitées. Goût fruité légèrement sûr et moyennement sucré (framboises naturelles, traces de cerises sûres) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût fruité plus sucré (léger de sirop de framboise) avec un fond de malt du genre caramel doux et en finale, l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral avec un goût fruité aux notes aigres (framboises). (2006)

rederic (3257) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2006
Hazy brown-reddish hue, with a frothy beige head, wheaty fruity nose of wild sour raspberries, with a tartness note, and sweet malty aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a tart acidic fruit raspberry character, hint of wineyness, and a sort of iodine too, with a raspberry seeds sourness, leading towards a fruit raspberry tartness finish.

Two bottles shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, tupalev & mds - courtesy of blankboy & tupalev. Deep ruby-pink colour with a small, light pink head. Aroma of fresh raspberry and malt. Flavour of tart berries and sweet malt, striking a nice fruit vs. beer balance. it’s OK, but I tried the original version of this when it was a seasonal beer several years ago, and I recall it being better.

weihenweizen (3187) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours mahogheny with crimson highlights and one inch head that dissapates quickly. Some thin lacing, light body, and a little light on the carbonation. Taste is sweet raspberry and a hint of hops in the finish.

cfrancis (3164) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours a deep ruby red with a small slightly off white head. Aroma is slightly subdued. Raspberry and slightly boozy in the nose. Taste is a dull raspberry with small hop and floral. Somewhat disappointing.

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!
