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.

presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle. White head and lacing. Dark red-copper. Dark aroma of dried raspberries. Tastes like beer and raspberries. Lots of sourness sinks into the gums. More fruit taste than extract and syrup.

robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
nice aroma of raspberry, but its also got some maltiness in there. Wow, the raspberry stick in the flavour but i can still tatse the beer. AMazing balance between both beer and fruit flvaours i can pick ou the malt and the fruit, and they mingle very well together. very well done.

Bouteille de 341ml. Cette bière au concentré de jus de framboise est d’une robe orange-foncée et rouge. La mousse est épaisse et d’une belle couleur beige. Au nez elle est discrète et laisse percevoir quelques petites arômes de framboise. En bouche cette bière n’est pas légère, elle a une bonne amertume. Ce n’est pas du jus d’été.

tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
Strong, jammy, raspberry aroma with some grain character notable but a mildly soapy note is distracting. Clear, amber brown coloured body is topped by a decent, fine bubbled, pink tinged white head that lasts nicely. Toasted malts are balanced nicely with lightly tart raspberries in the flavour with a lingering sweetness in the aftertaste. Medium body with moderate, fine bubbled carbonation that invigorates the tastebuds. Mondial 2006.

Eructoblaster (4370) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle. Nice brown/ruby body topped with a lasting beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with enjoyable raspberry notes. Taste is well balanced but lacks complexity. It ends with a decent sour finish. This is a quite honest fruit beer.

Brown bottle in a tube, 341 ml, best before 31JAN08, savoured on November 16 2007; eye: grape juice, hazy, no effervescence, nice creamy pinkish head that lasts, lots of lacing; nose: raspberry, caramelized malt, lightly stale, caramel, light acidity; mouth: creamy, light malt, raspberry, start to become quite sweet but that is fortunately stopped by the acidity of the fruit, finale in malt where the raspberry is becoming more and more present, lighstly sweet and acidic, medium body, creamy but a bit thin of a texture, average carbonation; overall: correct FRANÇAIS Bouteille brune dans un tube de carton, 341 ml, meilleure avant 31JAN08, savourée le 16 novembre 2007; œil : jus de raisin, voilée, pas d’effervescence, belle mousse rosée crémeuse qui perdure, beaucoup de dentelle; nez : framboise, malt caramélisé, légèrement éventée, caramel, légère acidité; bouche : crémeuse, légèrement malté, framboise, commence à devenir très sucrée mais l’acidité du fruit arrive juste à point pour contrer cette vague de sucre qui s’en venait, finale en malt mais où la framboise devient de plus en plus présente, légèrement sucrée et acide, corps moyen, texture crémeuse mais un peu mince, carbonatation moyenne; en résumé : correct

hawthorne00 (4111) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle, 10C. Cloudy deep red with a large pink creamy head. Smells of fresh raspberries and that’s about it. Tastes of them too with their sweetness and slight hairy tartness. There’s some bitterness too and a little dough in the mouthfeel. Quite high carbonation. Straightforward, refreshing, nicely balanced.

weihenweizen (4098) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours mahogheny with crimson highlights and one inch head that dissapates quickly. Some thin lacing, light body, and a little light on the carbonation. Taste is sweet raspberry and a hint of hops in the finish.

probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
341 mL bottle from La Trappe à Fromage, served at cellar temp from a tulip glass. FE 23/07

App.: clear red-pink with brown hues (like oxidized cranberry juice), decent pinkish-tan head. Aroma: fresh, juicy raspberries, raspberry jam, some resinous and piney hops, peppery, kinda sharp and green. Palate: thick and syrupy, fine, soft carbonation. Flav.: raspberry jam, tart, fresh raspberries, a bit metallic, a touch bitter, raspberry aftertaste, a touch of malt (hints of caramel, and roasted characters).

Not spectacular, but decent beer for $3.
