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.

341ml bottle from jsprime. pours hazed dark reddish brown. minimal aroma of pithy raspberry. the flavour is mostly balanced golden ale with raspberry added. super easy to drink and quite enjoyable as a refresher but not really a beer id reach for regularily.

Big initial raspberry sweetness. Maybe a bit of cereal type malt in the background. Pours dark amber with ok head retention. Tastes medium to heavy sweet, with a healthy dose of raspberry tart. Not very heavy in the mouth with pretty average carbonation. Nice summer beer.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2006
Bottle. Dark, murky mahogany with a medium white head and lacing. The aroma consists of cherries and tart fruity raspberries. The flavour is typically simple sweet and syrupy though there is a touch of fruit tartness. Not all that great but it’s still drinkable.

(bottle) hazy red colour with a tall pink head; aromas of raspberry, wheat; refreshing raspberry flavour, just the right balance of sweet/sour/bitter notes; very good

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2008
bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer. Murky reddish brown in color with a small head. Aroma has alot of sweet rasberry jam, with musty caramel malts, and some weird hops. Taste is sweet rasberry, sugar, lightly musty caramel malts- as well as some weird floral hop character. the fresh rasberry part of it was nice, otherwise, kind of strange.

Draught at Gambrinus. Thanks to Milos and Adil for getting this in. Very pretty dark amber/red hued liquid is topped with a thick foam leaving heavy lace. Interesting nose of fresh raspberries, kool-aid, English style hopping and earthy malts. A bit sweet, with nice acidity and mild bitterness to balance. Like easting a raspberry, but the beer has a metallic edge to it which I do not prefer. Very creamy finish, medium bodied, with nice lingering fruity aftertaste to it. This raspberry beer is for all seasons.

tomthompson89 (1976) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
nice beer, dark almost purple color, some decent foam but didn’t last long, nose is not overpowered by the fruit but well balanced with some good malt and some woody smells, not too thin has good berry flavor but also can taste some mild hops and decent malt, good beer.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Cloudy deep red copper, frothy pink head fades. Tart berry aroma and taste, with a light malt/hop background. Great dessert beer, yummy and refreshing. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Lorsque j’ai bue cette bière, c’était parce que j’avais envie d’un produit estival, qu’il faisait très chaud et quoi de mieux bière aux framboises? Alors, la couleur me charme en partant, elle est rouge-rosée, opaque, coiffée d’une mousse rose. Les odeurs sont tout en framboise, comme si je humais une barquette dudit fruit où l’on retrouve une senteur acidulée. Diantre! Ça goûte autant que ça sent et ça reste une bière. Une amertume et une acidité forme l’arrière-goût. C,est exactement ce que je voulais en ce jour de juin et j’en suis heureux. (270-170612)
