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.

AleRider78 (1413) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2017
Picked up a tallboy at the Beer Store. Pours a large foamy bubbly pinkish head, good retention, has a murky reddish appearance. Thick patchy lacing. Aromas of berries, mainly raspberry but also hints of strawberries and cherries. Flavours are quite fruity, the raspberry flavour is fairly noticeable at first but gives way to a watery like Belgian yeast finish. Medium bodied. Excessive carbonation. Refreshing and nothing too crazy.

northropfrye (3677) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
Dark reddish brown body, pinkish head, nice lacing. Sweet tart raspberry aroma. Taste is sweet, but not cloying, tastes like real raspberry. Fruit beers often suck, this one doesn’t.

Bright red pour. The raspberries taste real, which is not often the case with fruit beers. Nice tart taste as well. Pretty good beer

Can. Murky reddish-brown pour with a slightly pink-ish off-white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly tart raspberry, hints of gummy fruit candy. Taste is mostly the same, raspberry, some slight fake gummy candy notes, a little sweet and very slight tartness, finishes a little dry.

red color, mild carbonation, flat/light taste, little bit of raspberries in the flavor ...wife liked it, I thought it was ok...more of a summer style I guess.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Appearance: murky brownish purple with one finger of light purple head, excellent retention and decent lacing. (3/5) Aroma: raspberry and red berries, grainy malt. (6/10) Taste: moderate-strong sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (3/5) Hey, it’s an Ambroise Framboise! Not all that interesting - tastes kinda like raspberry jam in a pale ale. The initial sweetness drops pretty rapidly, but unfortunately so do all the other flavours, leaving a kind of undifferentiated astringency. Overall, not bad, but not great. (12/20)

bunget (1010) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2015
341ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Clear amber-pink body, medium light pink head with good retention. Aroma of tart raspberries, red currant, grains and jam. Taste of grains, raspberry juice, herbs and a some minimal hops in the backstage. Not bad for the style.

Stoned99 (1650) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Sample from wife’s glass. Aroma: raspberries sugar tarts, cereals, floral. App: dark red with brown tint, small white head. Taste and palate: light body, medium carbonation, medium sweetness, light dry and astringent acidity finish. Overall: not bad. Not my favourite raspberry ale / raddler but could be worst. Didn’t enjoy the finish and aroma and taste is just ok.

yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Bière gracieusement offerte par l’un des représentants McAuslan lors d’une vente de garage réalisée à Montréal! Il ne serait que trop facile de tomber dans le piège d’une analyse comparative de ce produit aux grandes bières du même genre (Solstice d’été par exemple) mais Il faut tout de même garder en tête qu’une complète objectivité est impossible. Cette bière est d’un rouge pourpre tirant sur le brun et offrant une abondante tête rosée. Le nez ne sent pas vraiment la bière, mais pas aucunement non plus. Mis à part l’importante dose de sirop de framboises, On sent quelques traces de levures qui cassent le sucre abondant. En bouche, tel qu’on doit s’y attendre, une dominance de sucres maladroitement artificiels, quoique non écoeurants vu le soin mis sur le dosage. La pétillance de cette bière est somme toute très bonne, à l’instar d’une belle’’eau’’ gazéifiée. Je dois admettre que malgré tout, je m’attendais à furieusement pire. Disons qu’il m’a été de déguster bien pire que celle-ci en terme de bières fruitées!

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Liquide rouge/rubis avec une épaisse mousse rose qui descend à un doigt en laissant peu de dentelle sur le verre. La framboise sucrée domine à l’odorat autant qu’au goût avec une finition surette assez plaisante. On ne peut parler de houblon...on n’en ressent pas dans ce breuvage qui ressemble plus à un punch fruité qu’à une bière. Elle plaira surement aux ’matantes’ en accompagnement de salades fruités ou desserts aux framboises durant les journées chaudes d’été.
