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.

341ml brown bottle. Pinkish brown out of the bottle. Head is quite thick and foamy and also has a slight pinky tint to it. Great lacing Hazy unclear appearance. Sweet nose, Candyish like Swedish berry candy. Taste was more tart than expected. Minimal fruit sweetness. Tart finish that lingers for a short while. Body is light, active spritzy carbonation. Good thirst quencher, a good summer drink.

Dark reddish brown body, pinkish head, nice lacing. Sweet tart raspberry aroma. Taste is sweet, but not cloying, tastes like real raspberry. Fruit beers often suck, this one doesn’t.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. So frambozy like. Like raspberry frozen and then unfrozen. Frambozen. I’m pissed

Pours a deep ruby red with a small slightly off white head. Aroma is slightly subdued. Raspberry and slightly boozy in the nose. Taste is a dull raspberry with small hop and floral. Somewhat disappointing.

Pours a clear ruby color with a medium but diminishing pink bubbly head. Aroma of tart raspberries and mild sweetness. The flavor is like the aroma, tart rapsberries and sweetness, the malt is also present. The body is light and liquorous and the carbonation is medium. It’s not bad but gets kind of boring after a while.

Pours a ruby red/mohagony color. Aroma is fresh raspberries and bread. Taste is like fake candy raspberries or candles. Not my favorite fruit beer by a long shot but it wasnt awful.

Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours reddish with low pinky head. Aroma is of raspberries. Taste is of raspberries. Sligth acidity and bitterness. Balance not too shabby. A fair fruit beer.

Metalchopz (3447) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
Originally rated July 2006. Bought at La Trappe À Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec. Comes in singles in a bottle-size box. Wow, very nice light pink head that is creamy, has very long retention and leaves great thick lacing all-around. Its colour is red with a touch of orange and even though clear, is hard to see through. Tiny carbonation is quite active, but tough to see. The nose is on the light side, with the raspberry and mild hops. The mouthfeel has a bit of stickiness, but is pretty crisp overall. The raspberries are present in the taste, but also too light, with some bitterness in the finish and grain malt. Not too sweet. The aftertaste is almost dry with not much lingering. A great refreshing summer brew from one of my favorite breweries. I just wish the aromas and flavours would be more dominant, and found it overpriced.

Two bottles shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, tupalev & mds - courtesy of blankboy & tupalev. Deep ruby-pink colour with a small, light pink head. Aroma of fresh raspberry and malt. Flavour of tart berries and sweet malt, striking a nice fruit vs. beer balance. it’s OK, but I tried the original version of this when it was a seasonal beer several years ago, and I recall it being better.

3.2
rederic (3340) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2006
Hazy brown-reddish hue, with a frothy beige head, wheaty fruity nose of wild sour raspberries, with a tartness note, and sweet malty aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a tart acidic fruit raspberry character, hint of wineyness, and a sort of iodine too, with a raspberry seeds sourness, leading towards a fruit raspberry tartness finish.
