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.

matt7215 (2278) - 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.

cmacklin (715) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, ruby-red colour with a small pink head. Sweet flavour of raspberry and a little malt with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation.

Belle couleur mais rien à voir avec la DDC. Un peu sûr avec une touche fruité mais combien rafraîchissante

Speedy_Charly (200) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Liquide rouge/rubis avec une épaisse mousse rose qui descend à un doigt en laissant peu de dentelle sur le verre. La framboise sucrée domine à l’odorat autant qu’au goût avec une finition surette assez plaisante. On ne peut parler de houblon...on n’en ressent pas dans ce breuvage qui ressemble plus à un punch fruité qu’à une bière. Elle plaira surement aux ’matantes’ en accompagnement de salades fruités ou desserts aux framboises durant les journées chaudes d’été.

UXO (1354) - CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Appearance: murky brownish purple with one finger of light purple head, excellent retention and decent lacing. (3/5) Aroma: raspberry and red berries, grainy malt. (6/10) Taste: moderate-strong sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (3/5) Hey, it’s an Ambroise Framboise! Not all that interesting - tastes kinda like raspberry jam in a pale ale. The initial sweetness drops pretty rapidly, but unfortunately so do all the other flavours, leaving a kind of undifferentiated astringency. Overall, not bad, but not great. (12/20)

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2007
[bottle] Pours reddish brown color, with a short-lived pink head. Subtle fruit aroma. Tart, mildly acidic raspberry flavors mix with a somewhat weak malt background. Finish is very dry, with a touch of woodiness. Not really something I’d pick up again, even if it comes in a fancy box.

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.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2008
Pours a watery red with no head & some minimal lacing. Aroma is leafy raspberry, very thin and green. Tastes equally watery and thin, bitter and tea-like, more like it was made from the leaves of a raspberry plant than the actual berries themselves. Thin with passable carb. Weak and uninteresting.
