Also known as Organic Raspberry Handcrafted Fruit Ale
A product of England this is an ale brewed with raspberry juice and natural flavours added. Brewed at All Saints in Stamford Lincolnshire and blended and bottled at Samuel Smith’s Brewery. The finest organically grown barley and wheat are used to create a complex ale which having undergone primary and secondary fermentation with different yeasts and extended maturation. This beer is blended with pure organic raspberry fruit juice and a previously cellared brew creating an unparalleled fruit ale. The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice.

This beer was okay. The raspberry seemed to come in bursts, and conflict with, rather than blend with or complement, the typical ale flavors. Not my favorite fruit beer, or my favorite Sam Smith brew

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is raspberry juice, fruity vitamins. Taste is raspberry syrup in soda with some mineral vitamin quality. I liked the first few sips but had to push through the rest. Not much beer backbone here.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 1/15/18 Had a few sips of Abby’s after she had a long day at work. Poured from their classic 550mL bottle. Deep red with a moderate pink head. Looks great! Nose is sweet raspberries with a hint of some dark cherry. Taste is sweet, tart raspberries! Kind of darker tasting - almost like raspberry jelly. Not overpowering or too saccharine. This is delicious! Palate is thin with noticeable carbonation. Goes down easy with a surprisingly dry finish for how sweet it is. Overall, this is by far my favorite fruit beer or cider that I’ve ever had. Definitely not as fruit juice-like as others. Might have a bit of newcomer bias as this is my first foray into “craft” fruit beers but I’m a big fan. Bought it for Abby but would definitely buy it for myself as well!

On bottle @Salling. Pours red, with small foam. Nice, sweet raspberry notes. Sweet beer, excellent fruit beer. Small bitterness.

Idiosynkrasie (8198) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
355ml bottle. Cloudy, ruby colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, pink-ish head. Sweet-ish raspberry aroma, notes of raspberry juice, raspberry pulp, without tart or earthy flavours. Taste is sweet fruity, notes of raspberry, raspberry pulp again, no tartness. Yummy, but slightly too sweet and restricted.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2017
Bottle @home. Pours ruby red, bubbles pink but thin did not form a real head but lots of bubbles. Nose is raspberries and caramel. Taste is the same, its tart at first but then gives way to a sweet finish.

drpimento (3814) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2017
Very good beer except for some slight hints of off qualities. Princeton’s in Aroma very rich true raspberry character except for a suggestion of cleaning agents. Same thing for flavor almost perfect but some slight hints of chemicals or something.

lokis333 (618) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - AUG 12, 2017
Deep red color with small pale pink foam. Aromas sweet of raspberries and throat sweets. Palate, thin with a light body and sweet finish. Taste, sweet of raspberry jam and jam tarts also candy. Overall, nice sweet tasting fruit beer but not too sugary more jammy and natural tasting but still really sweet.

Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2017
355ml bottle shared with Steinar at Angel Inn. Fading pink coloured head, dark red coloured body, near-clear. Spotty lacing down the glass. Raspberry skins on the nose. Taste of sweet raspberries, tutti frutti like, hints of almond. Sticky sweet ending. Drinkable, but not my kind of beer. (Leeds 04.07.2017).

Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - JUN 11, 2017
Red with medium white head. Aroma is raspberry oak yoghurt marmelade. Taste is fruity sweet and slight honey notes with lots of sour raspberries and tasty marmelade. Nice fruity finish. Drinkable fresh and deep. Excellent.

MrOrla (3692) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle. Pours muddy red with a white head. Aroma of candy raspberries, sugary, red current s, saftevand. Alcopoo alike. Sweet with loads of synethic raspberries.
