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.

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.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2007
Cloudy red amber brown. Pink tan head... really cool looking. Raspberry aroma with faint matls lingering on through... Flavour is light raspberry with lingering malt... They balance out quite well with each other with a very light bitter hint hanging off my tongue. Over all finish was slightly dry with a medium body. Not bad!

lesifflebiere (1188) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Bien rouge, coiffée d’une mousse rose qui semble onctueuse, elle émet des notes fruitées surtout, mais aussi de céréales. Les fruits ont aussi préséance en bouche, mais une finale de grains blonds est bien perceptible en finale, après une longue parade de saveurs de framboises, de petits fruits rouges variés, et de sucres légèrement amers. C’est une redoutable bière de soif, pas trop acidulée, qui goûte les vraies framboises tout en étant équilibrée ; sans être incontournable, elle est très appréciée sous un soleil de plomb.

Robe rouge foncée voilée surmontée d’une mousse rose qui s’estompe. Arômes de framboise mures et de céréales. Saveurs de framboises mures, de torréfié et de céréales.

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)

Reimer96 (1162) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2012
Pours a cloudy ruby red color with a big reddish white head. Initial taste is sweet raspberry them finishes with authentic sour raspberry. Like made with a mix of both extract and real fruit.

thorongil2 (1149) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
(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

JesseM (1145) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 341ml bottle. Pours a nice deep, murky red with pink highlights, and a think, creamy pink head. The aroma is mostly rasberry, with some hops and a touch of alcohol. The taste is the same, with a malty finish and after-taste, and touch of sourness. Heavier mouth-feel, but nothing too heavy. Decent, but not spectacular. The aroma is a little annoying, but the taste makes up for it.

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)

341ml bottle. Pours a deep, unfiltered, velvet red with a large, fluffy, pink head. Aroma is nice with some natural raspberry jam sweetness and tartness. Something about the taste seemed a little off, hops too earthy or something metallic? Body is light and dry. Overall, looked good, smelled good, but the taste didn’t come together. Raspberry taste doesn’t come through and very little beer here.
