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.

Pours red with thick pink head (cute!) and some lacing. Very strong aroma of raspberry and nothing else. Same with taste. Fizzy. Women will like this.

Bouteille 500ml, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur rouge foncée et voilée. Nez fruité (framboises et moyen de cerises naturelles, léger de sirop de fruits) et léger de grains de malt. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement sirupeuse fruitée. Goût fruité (framboises sucrées aux petites notes acides, léger de cerises) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de grains de malt ainsi qu’un goût sucré de sirop de fruits puis en finale l’on retrouve des petites notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen, légèrement sucré et aux petites notes acides de fruits (framboises, notes de moût de cerises).

Metalchopz (3472) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
An English brewery I always like to see at the LCBO. After having a few weak fruit beers from "Les Frères Houblons", I was expecting something good from this one. Pours a dark red colour with a rich red-pink creamy head that has good retention and beautiful lace. A full raspberry nose is felt, with the great fruit juice. Lightly bodied which makes this one quite refreshing. Does not seem weird (different) like most organic brews I have tastes. Some nice sweetness with the juice and a little sourness in the finish. A very well-balanced organic raspberry fruit beer.

bottle. Poured opaque reddish-brown with a large pink-beige head. Aroma is candied raspberry and sickly sweet. VERY sweet candied flavour with a malt undertone. A little dry, and a touch of alcohol. Palate is medium with average carbonation. A nice fruit beer without a sour taste.

Sammy (12596) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
LCBO bottle, aka Melbourne Brothers raspberry, and certainly in their way of making beer. Sticky enough to attract flies. Reddish with pink foam. On the sweet side, medium mouthfeel. A good tartness. Very berry. Decent fruit beer.

blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle [550ml]. Pours a bubbly deep pink-amber with a large lasting fluffy pink head. Decent lacing. Nice aroma of tart raspberries, cherries too, lightly sweet and slightly earthy. Flavour of tart raspberries and some cherries backed by caramel malt and a dry, tart finish -- quite tasty. Gets a touch sweet after a while but never too much so. Carbonated just right for the style. Average bodied. Really good stuff, I need to get to the store for more pronto!

OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle from my 3-year-old son as a present for my birthday. Don’t know where he got the fake id.

This completes my non-lambic raspberry trifecta (Alaskan, Wyders, Sam Smith) of the last 24 hours. Don’t think I’ll repeat it any time soon. Basically, raspberry juice with a bit of wheat beer character. Sweet and sticky, tasty enough but nothing like beer. Deep red pour, pink head, Intense raspberry aroma, sweet rich juice dominating the flavor. None of the dryness that the Alaskan had to offer. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
