This is a favorite at our house for an easy to drink relaxing beer. The raspberry flavor and aroma is strong but not overpowering. NPRugby11 (219) - New York, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Scent is overwhelmingly ripe raspberry which leads into the taste...raspberry with just a bit of bitter ale bite on the aftertaste. Love the tartness of the raspberry, balances out the ale beautifully. This is how a fruit beer is done DutchLuv (5) - Brampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2012 does not count
A must have for anyone who’s into fruit beer. Best tasting I’ve ever had. Subtle raspberry flavour, creamy suds, a good balance of bitterness. Another great beet from Sam Smith! BazScott (69) - - DEC 11, 2015
Clear raspberry colour with sweet aroma. Perfectly balanced palate, not too sweet, not too dry. Nice real fruit flavour. Very easy to drink. 5.1% Vol. Can’t really fault it. :-) rangorush (4) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2011 does not count
lovely beer not only for the wife! Great natural color, pours into a beautiful red, nice head and absolutly delicious. Pretty much what you would expect from samuel smith beer. well crafted, well rounded, thats one beer to clone.

hazy deep purple with a large frothy light pink head. very similar appearance to the cherry. amazing raspberry and flower aroma with a distinct spicy herbalness. a floral, caramel, raspberry flavor with toasted malt finish. some hints of milk chocolate too. there something hugely appealing about this beer. I can’t quite nail it down though. the caramel flavors mid palate?, milk chocolate?, the sweetness?, the flowery hints in the finish? everything perfectly infused with lush ripe raspberries. i never thought a fruit beer could be this good. wow! I’m a fan.
