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.

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.

Sweet fruit malt aroma. Clear amber colour with fair head and lacing. Sweet stone fruit malt apricot flavour. Smooth palate.

Five bucks for this bottle, and all you get for this money is a muddled blend of raspberry syrup and bland, vague malts. Didn’t notice the "sun-ripened hops", which makes sense because hops don’t ripen and all hops are grown outside anyway. Whether they are merely trotting out their old raspberry beer in a pretentious package or not I don’t know, but charging real money for this blend of bland is criminal. They better not do this with my oatmeal stout!

Pours a clear ruby color with a medium but diminishing pink bubbly head. Aroma of tart raspberries and mild sweetness. The flavor is like the aroma, tart rapsberries and sweetness, the malt is also present. The body is light and liquorous and the carbonation is medium. It’s not bad but gets kind of boring after a while.

cfrancis (2689) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours a deep ruby red with a small slightly off white head. Aroma is slightly subdued. Raspberry and slightly boozy in the nose. Taste is a dull raspberry with small hop and floral. Somewhat disappointing.

Not one of my favourite beers from McAuslan but to be fair also not my favourite beer style. A fairly neutral ale with raspberry flavouring. Not overly sweet but sweet enough not to be that pleasant after a couple of sips. A good fruit beer needs a stronger more complex beer to complement it so the sweetness does not dominate too much.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
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.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2006
Ruby red colour with a nice retaining head. Aroma is raspberry and some malts. Flavour is light raspberry with some caramel malts but just doesn’t seem to blend seemlessly. Finishes syrupy.

Belle mousse abondante. Doux parfum de framboise. Goût peu prononcé. Peu d’effervescence.
