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.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Sampled at Mondial 2006. Dark red body with a pink head. The aroma was definitely sour raspberries with tart candy smells. There was some fresh hay. The taste is a little tart with raspberries and some hay. A nice mild beer tat is dry and refreshing. Nothing close to a lambic, but somewhere in between that and the typical fruit beer.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours mahogheny with crimson highlights and one inch head that dissapates quickly. Some thin lacing, light body, and a little light on the carbonation. Taste is sweet raspberry and a hint of hops in the finish.

Reynolds314 (2303) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Pours a ruby red/mohagony color. Aroma is fresh raspberries and bread. Taste is like fake candy raspberries or candles. Not my favorite fruit beer by a long shot but it wasnt awful.

sulawang (613) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
pours cloudy brownish/red with a decent dissipating head, layer of retention, some sticky lacing, some slow-moving CO2 streams near the surface. Fruity red raspberries on the nose. Burst of 4/10 sweet aromatic red raspberries initially, transitions into 5/10-level sourness that isnt overpowering but balanced with brown sugar malts, a silky creamy mouthfeel in the mids, finishing with a minor tartness and 6/10-level caramel sweetness & bitterness. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, good carry, good drinkability. The finish ends a little rough in the mouth.

Damico (2563) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2012
The fruit ale pours red amber in color, pinkish from the berries. The aroma is pleasant bring the sweet raspberry fruits in the nose and a bit of yeast. The flavor brings some sweet berries, but bland malt flavors are overall disappointing here and the berries die quickly. Not sweet or tart or funky really to bring a unique note to it.

solidfunk (3896) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Not entirely pleasant. Texture is very syrupy. Pours red without much head or lacing. Sweet finish. Raspberry very present, even abusive. Bottle from my buddys fridge at the end of the night.

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.
