May 13th, 2011 - Well known for their dark beers and stouts, it’s rarer to find one of Samuel Smith’s fruit beers on the shelf. This is a somewhat sad state of affairs. Samuel Smith handles the fruit style with aplomb, demonstrating balance in skill and adaptability. The brew’s body is very dark purple and cloudy, almost magisterial, with slight hues of pink trailing from the beer and threaded throughout the foam. Fresh and flowery, the Organic Raspberries appear, though not as raspberries, but plying smells of thick strawberry jam and deep, ripe cherries. The mouthfeel is almost all carbonation and mineral water, and the fruit flavor makes me feel like I’m standing in the shallow end of the pool. This also reminds me Hansens’s soda, though not quite as unpleasant. The taste falls a little short, but after taking in the entire bottle, I think this is a satisfactory fruit beer, if a little light and ephemeral.

550mL bottle. Pours a cranberry-colored dark red with a foamy medium pink head. Aroma is raspberry syrup/jam. Taste is similar with tart but sweet raspberry and a little malt. Decent bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Average carbonation. Sticky, creamy(isn) mouthfeel.

JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Amber color with hues of red when held to the light. Light pink head. Concentrated raspberry scents. Too industrial for my liking. Herbal and medicinal are the things that pop into the mind with the first sip. Things do not change much after that. Industrial raspberry brew. 4/11

It’s good even thou I had to double check the bottle and make sure it wasn’t a wine, actually an ale strong raspberry flavor would recommend.

355ml bottle at the Swan and Three Cygnets, Durham. Pinkish-red colour with a thin white head. Aroma of strong, sweet raspberry gin. Tart notes of raspberry jam, balanced by the faint bitterness and light notes of a pale ale.
