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.

bunget (896) - 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.

BeerGolem (815) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle 341 ml. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a nice froathy pink head. Great lacing. Aroma: overwhelmingly raspberries, maybe some other red fruits. Taste: once more, overwhelmingly raspberries. Mostly sour, with slight sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied. Some carbonation. Overall, it is an interesting beer, refreshing and highly drinkable. Ideal for hot summer afternoons. Problem is its general lack of balance.

On tap at the Wooly. Pours ruby, browny, in colour, with pink tinged head. Aroma and taste are reasonably strong raspberry flavour. Pretty good!

Frothmeister (758) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a hazy sort of watery Clamato coloured red, with a pink/beige head. For unknown reasons there is quite a bit of burnt marshmallow on the nose, with fresh raspberries, floral notes, and a little dough. The taste is heavy on raspberry juice, faint lemon, followed by just enough hops to let you know theyre present, and some malt and mineral notes in the finish. The presence of the hops makes this for me. Its not just all raspberry. A bit of a surprise here. Pretty decent stuff!

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2007
[bottle] Pours reddish brown color, with a short-lived pink head. Subtle fruit aroma. Tart, mildly acidic raspberry flavors mix with a somewhat weak malt background. Finish is very dry, with a touch of woodiness. Not really something Id pick up again, even if it comes in a fancy box.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2006
Bottled. Perhaps the dryest raspberry beer Ive ever tasted, with a hint of hops in the finish. Nothing artificial here, but the distinct flavour of dark, seedy fruit -- its almost like youre drinking the seeds. The proportions are a bit tentative and it smells a little funky, but the thin, smooth body combines nicely with the slightly tart fruitiness.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2007
341 ml bottle - pours a muddy brown with red highlights and a pinkish head. Aroma is all framboises, but REAL raspberries, not extract. It has that slight earthiness that actual raspberry juice has. The flavour is strange.....the raspberry is less potent than in the aroma. There is also some hop presence, but that is kind of overshadowed by the raspberry. Abrupt finish. A good fruit beer, certainly one of the better ones Ive tasted.
