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.

Super bière. Le goût de framboise n’est pas trop artificiel, l’arôme est intéressant et elle a une belle apparence. Pas facile à trouver cependant...

Très bonne bière! L’arôme de framboise n’est pas top prononcée elle est juste bien balancée et il en est de même pour le goût , miam!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2011 Très bonne bière sucré. Le gout de la framboise est près de la perfection, pas trop sucré, mais juste assez pour bien le ressentir.

Normally I wouldn’t bother giving a fruit beer a 2nd look, especially at 4 bucks. But for some reason I decided to give er a try and was not disspaointed. Not a sweet or sour beer by any means, there is a pleasant berry tartness that really quenches a thirst. Also, impressive deep red colour with short lasting head...mild berry aroma. Overpriced but a winner nonetheless.

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)

(bottle) Poured a hazy reddish amber with a good dense, slightly pink head. The aroma was very pleasant: tangy, yeasty and raspberry. Lovely palate - light bodied but the wonderful fine carbonation gives a silky mouthfeel. The flavour is very well balanced: subtle candy sweetness with subtle natural raspberry flavour and subtle interesting notes from the yeast. The finish has some slight cleansing bitterness. Overall this is an excellent, well balanced, interesting and drinkable raspberry beer. It is really quite different from a traditional Belgian framboise as it is not sour, more subtle and somehow richer and more rounded.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2007
Held up to the light it’s a deep red, with a tall frothy head. Aroma is strong but pleasant raspberry. Smooth feel with a tart berry finish. The best fruit beer I’ve had to date.

Bottle, one of many I served over the course of our super-hot Medicine Hat summer, this was a mainstay in my beer fridge. Beautiful colour-- plum-red with brickish highlights, and a generous foamy oink head that shows excellent retention and leaves lovely lacy trails. Aroma is my dad’s homemade raspberry jam (best in the world), sweet but authentic, a little seedy, and with hints of chocolate cookie. Sweet genuine raspberry fruit flavour, again quite jammy and a little seedy, with a well structured malt in support. If I had to guess, I think there is some crystal malt or chocolate malt in here. Despite the sweet body, it finishes dry and slightly bitter. I just never got tired of this. So good!

(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
