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.

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

mgermani (1010) - 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. It’s the sort of thing I might offer to someone who doesn’t typically drink beer. There’s much better raspberry beer out there, but this is good for a fruit beer at a standard six pack price.

pumpkinhead2 (953) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Bière rouge foncée (rouge framboise!), bien voilée, bonne effervescence, surmontée d’un col très légèrement rosé, un peu mince mais résistant. À mon étonnement, le nez est surtout en levure, davantage qu’en framboise! Arômes de levure (pain, voire pâte, et cheval/cuir) et ensuite de framboises très mûres, peut-être d’autres petits fruits, un peu de vin, voire de médicament. Pas très intéressant comme nez! En bouche, c’est un peu pétillant, un peu mousseux, mais c’est très mince au palais. Au goût, ça goûte les petits fruits trop mûres, la levure, la pâte à pain, le mauvais vin, le médicament… Un peu sucré, un peu acide, finale un peu amère, mauvaise intégration des saveurs, mauvais produit, bière décevante…

SuperTiti33 (893) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
Rouge2013 Un peu sucré goût typique mcauslan. Houblon floral. Sirop de framboise. Céréale.belle amertume qui persiste jusqu’à la fin. Simple mais bien.

BeerGolem (829) - 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.

3.4
Frothmeister (829) - 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 they’re present, and some malt and mineral notes in the finish. The presence of the hops makes this for me. It’s not just all raspberry. A bit of a surprise here. Pretty decent stuff!

jimmay (815) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2011
On tap at the Wooly. Pours ruby, browny, in colour, with pink tinged head. Aroma and taste are reasonably strong raspberry flavour. Pretty good!

JHunter (772) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2010
Pours a dark ruby red colour with a thin white head which has good retention sweet aroma of berries. Taste is sweetie berries and a light bubbly carbonation
