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.

Not entirely pleasant. Texture is very syrupy. Pours red without much head or lacing. Sweet finish. Raspberry very present, even abusive. Bottle from my buddy’s fridge at the end of the night.

Ferris (8929) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Draft - Raspberry jam. Cloudy reddish amber with a nice white head. Light tartness, raspberry and a light finish. Not enough of anything to make this interesting.

Stoned99 (716) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Sample from wife’s glass. Aroma: raspberries sugar tarts, cereals, floral. App: dark red with brown tint, small white head. Taste and palate: light body, medium carbonation, medium sweetness, light dry and astringent acidity finish. Overall: not bad. Not my favourite raspberry ale / raddler but could be worst. Didn’t enjoy the finish and aroma and taste is just ok.

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.

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle. Ruby body, with a small white-pink head and light lacing on the glass. Tart raspberry aroma with mild hints of cherry, touch muted at times. Overly sweet fruit flavour, raspberry jam, with a touch of green vine and tartness. Average to medium palate. This has a big fruit factor, and its sort of nice but it needs more complexity to make it drinkable in any kind of quantity.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
pours a murky red/brown with an offwhite/slightly pink head. Creamy thin lacing. Nose of slightly sour and fermented raspberry with a whiff of woodland mushrooms and yeast. Initially quite acidic, and lessens quickly. Not as userfriendly as suspected. Not very sweet, more deep in malts, earth and more of that mushroom. It’s fairly good. I expected something bolder.

matt7215 (2272) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2010
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.
