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.

Tessic (1206) - 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 isn’t 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???

pours cloudy brownish/red with a decent dissipating head, layer of retention, some sticky lacing, some slow-moving CO2 streams near the surface. Fruity red raspberries on the nose. Burst of 4/10 sweet aromatic red raspberries initially, transitions into 5/10-level sourness that isn’t overpowering but balanced with brown sugar malts, a silky creamy mouthfeel in the mids, finishing with a minor tartness and 6/10-level caramel sweetness & bitterness. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, good carry, good drinkability. The finish ends a little rough in the mouth.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Pours a cloudy vibrant red accompanied with a small pinkish head. Smells sour, very little malt characteristic. Tastes closest to a raspberry than any other beer I’ve had with noticeable carbonation.

Robe rouge foncée voilée surmontée d’une mousse rose qui s’estompe. Arômes de framboise mures et de céréales. Saveurs de framboises mures, de torréfié et de céréales.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 341ml bottle. Pours a nice deep, murky red with pink highlights, and a think, creamy pink head. The aroma is mostly rasberry, with some hops and a touch of alcohol. The taste is the same, with a malty finish and after-taste, and touch of sourness. Heavier mouth-feel, but nothing too heavy. Decent, but not spectacular. The aroma is a little annoying, but the taste makes up for it.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a deep, unfiltered, velvet red with a large, fluffy, pink head. Aroma is nice with some natural raspberry jam sweetness and tartness. Something about the taste seemed a little off, hops too earthy or something metallic? Body is light and dry. Overall, looked good, smelled good, but the taste didn’t come together. Raspberry taste doesn’t come through and very little beer here.

Crockett (1127) - 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. It’s fairly good. I expected something bolder.

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. It’s 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 it’s well before the stated "best by" date, but it is bordering on undrinkable. A dissapointing beer.

dandeman (1067) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Évaluation no. 97 Mai 2011. Un nez tout en framboise avec de légères notes de houblon. De couleur rouge framboise, avec une mousse généreuse, onctueuse et de persistance moyenne. En bouche, la framboise est très présente et bien équilibrée avec les alcools. Une bière assez douce. Bonne bière d’été, rafraichissante. J’ai cependant préféré celle à la citrouille.

3.3
bunget (1024) - 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.
