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.

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.

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.

Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2011
Pours dark red with a large, pink-tinged moussey head. Lots of raspberry presents itself in the aroma, somewhat artificial smelling like raspberry lollies. Which is pretty nice really. Also some caramel and cookie dough-like malt. Flavours are also quite sweet, raspberry at the forefront of course, with some metallic notes showing later. Not much else is noticeable, the high carbonation seems to hide any other aspects.

Viper666 (3290) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. de couleur brune-rouge et légèrement voilée. Nez fruité (framboises légèrement acides, léger sirop de framboises, traces de cerises sûres), léger de malt sucré (notes de caramel) avec des traces de houblon. Moyennement ronde en bouche et assez pétillante avec une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes sirupeuses fruitées. Goût fruité légèrement sûr et moyennement sucré (framboises naturelles, traces de cerises sûres) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût fruité plus sucré (léger de sirop de framboise) avec un fond de malt du genre caramel doux et en finale, l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral avec un goût fruité aux notes aigres (framboises). (2006)

Quevillon (3196) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2006
Bu au Mondial de la Bière 06. Elle est de retour, la bière d’été de McAuslan. Beau rouge avec un bon collet. Arome de malte fruité. Goût de franboise sûre, mais assé bien. Bon pour l’été.

DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2006
Huge raspberry aroma, dark pink/auburn, with a small pink head. Taste is the essence of raspbery, sweet and syrupy. Pretty good. Thank You Very Much Andrew!

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2012
The fruit ale pours red amber in color, pinkish from the berries. The aroma is pleasant bring the sweet raspberry fruits in the nose and a bit of yeast. The flavor brings some sweet berries, but bland malt flavors are overall disappointing here and the berries die quickly. Not sweet or tart or funky really to bring a unique note to it.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
Bottles shared with the regular crew including MDS, courtesy of blankboy and myself. Thin red, small pink head. Faint berry aroma, mild. Faint berry taste, rather artificial. Thin. Mediocre at best, really didn’t leave much of an impression. Not sure why they have to taint the St. Ambroise name with a beer like this.

3.3
pushkinwow (2961) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUN 16, 2011
341ml bottle. Red hued brown, hazy, large white but rose tinged head. Subdued raspberries, not overly sweet, some malt and caramel. Start sweet, builds as the raspberry taste becomes more prominent. Decent body and partly buttery mouthfeel but there isn’t much going on. Have to say I like that its not too sweet, and that the raspberries don’t hit you over the head. Still its lacking complexity and depth.
