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, its a unique summertime treat.

Crockett (1113) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
pours a murky red/brown with an offwhite/slightly pink head. Creamy thin lacing. Nose of slightly sour and fermented raspberry with a whiff of woodland mushrooms and yeast. Initially quite acidic, and lessens quickly. Not as userfriendly as suspected. Not very sweet, more deep in malts, earth and more of that mushroom. Its fairly good. I expected something bolder.

Tessic (1111) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2007
This raspberry ale poured a deep reddish orange colour with a bright white rocky head. to the nose there was scents of hopps, raspberries, jam and wine. First taste isnt as bad as I expected with strong but not overpowering flavours of raspberries. Not much of anything else in the flavour and the finish is bubbly with a little extra carbonation. The palate is raspberries but quick to finish to nothing???

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Hazy deep caramel apple/rustic amber with raspberry puree hues. A thin creamy head is very stable. The nose is terribly obnoxious, as soon as the cap flies off the bottle. Sweet raspberry nectar and sugers pile out of the glass in overdrive. Its offensive solely due to the fact that no matter how far away from the glass I am, the smell is still present. With my nose buried in the glass for a brave whiff the entirety of the aroma is not at all unpleasant and has a moderate and likeable hoppiness that actually derails the forcefulness of the raspberry and strives toward balance. This is strange indeed. The flavor is full of plasticized raspberry skin notes and mild bitterness from evident hops. Acidity is mild to medium and astringency is far too potent. The mouthfeel is well carbonated and seems smooth at first but gets stuck in the throat. The finish is full of raspberry and artificial sweetener, drying and astringent, mildly musty. Nothing seems inherently old about this beer and in fact its well before the stated "best by" date, but it is bordering on undrinkable. A dissapointing beer.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle thanks to my sisters. Pours a somewhat murky reddish brown colour with smallish light pink coloured head. Falls away slowly leaving a little lacing. Aromas are more subdued than expected showing some syrupy rapsberries and a little sweet malt. Flavours are overall pretty sweet with only light bitterness to finish. Medium to medium thin mouthfeel. OK

cmacklin (1012) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, ruby-red colour with a small pink head. Sweet flavour of raspberry and a little malt with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2008
Pours a watery red with no head & some minimal lacing. Aroma is leafy raspberry, very thin and green. Tastes equally watery and thin, bitter and tea-like, more like it was made from the leaves of a raspberry plant than the actual berries themselves. Thin with passable carb. Weak and uninteresting.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Trackside Liqour in Medicine Hat, AB on 06/18/2011. Colour: Dark brown with medium soft and creamy head that shows a distinct stubborness. A slight pink tinge to it as well. Nose: Candied raspberries, very sugary...completely dominant. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. More raspberry and with a slightly sour kick, a touch of peach. Works itself into a slight cheese profile and fades sticky with stringent fruit. Interesting.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2010 Bottle. Hazed medium amber with a thick beige head. Jammy, sweet raspberry aroma with a flavor also dominated by raspberry on a light caramel malt background. Moderate tartness combines with the thick fruity sweetness to give an almost ketchupy impression. Light, slightly syrupy feel. Nothing terrible about this. Its the sort of thing I might offer to someone who doesnt typically drink beer. Theres much better raspberry beer out there, but this is good for a fruit beer at a standard six pack price.

dandeman (899) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
valuation no. 97 Mai 2011. Un nez tout en framboise avec de lgres notes de houblon. De couleur rouge framboise, avec une mousse gnreuse, onctueuse et de persistance moyenne. En bouche, la framboise est trs prsente et bien quilibre avec les alcools. Une bire assez douce. Bonne bire dt, rafraichissante. Jai cependant prfr celle la citrouille.

bunget (898) - 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.
