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.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2008
bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer. Murky reddish brown in color with a small head. Aroma has alot of sweet rasberry jam, with musty caramel malts, and some weird hops. Taste is sweet rasberry, sugar, lightly musty caramel malts- as well as some weird floral hop character. the fresh rasberry part of it was nice, otherwise, kind of strange.

Draught at Gambrinus. Thanks to Milos and Adil for getting this in. Very pretty dark amber/red hued liquid is topped with a thick foam leaving heavy lace. Interesting nose of fresh raspberries, kool-aid, English style hopping and earthy malts. A bit sweet, with nice acidity and mild bitterness to balance. Like easting a raspberry, but the beer has a metallic edge to it which I do not prefer. Very creamy finish, medium bodied, with nice lingering fruity aftertaste to it. This raspberry beer is for all seasons.

nice beer, dark almost purple color, some decent foam but didn’t last long, nose is not overpowered by the fruit but well balanced with some good malt and some woody smells, not too thin has good berry flavor but also can taste some mild hops and decent malt, good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 Bouteille 341 ml. 5%. Été 2010, Été 2011. Couleur rousse-rougeâtre assez foncée. Arôme de malt et framboise. Goût de framboise, dévoile un léger caramel, malt. Une légère amertume termine le tout. Très bonne. Une des meilleures bières aux framboises.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Bien rouge, coiffée d’une mousse rose qui semble onctueuse, elle émet des notes fruitées surtout, mais aussi de céréales. Les fruits ont aussi préséance en bouche, mais une finale de grains blonds est bien perceptible en finale, après une longue parade de saveurs de framboises, de petits fruits rouges variés, et de sucres légèrement amers. C’est une redoutable bière de soif, pas trop acidulée, qui goûte les vraies framboises tout en étant équilibrée ; sans être incontournable, elle est très appréciée sous un soleil de plomb.

UXO (1922) - CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Appearance: murky brownish purple with one finger of light purple head, excellent retention and decent lacing. (3/5) Aroma: raspberry and red berries, grainy malt. (6/10) Taste: moderate-strong sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (3/5) Hey, it’s an Ambroise Framboise! Not all that interesting - tastes kinda like raspberry jam in a pale ale. The initial sweetness drops pretty rapidly, but unfortunately so do all the other flavours, leaving a kind of undifferentiated astringency. Overall, not bad, but not great. (12/20)

yourilevesque (1865) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Bière gracieusement offerte par l’un des représentants McAuslan lors d’une vente de garage réalisée à Montréal! Il ne serait que trop facile de tomber dans le piège d’une analyse comparative de ce produit aux grandes bières du même genre (Solstice d’été par exemple) mais Il faut tout de même garder en tête qu’une complète objectivité est impossible. Cette bière est d’un rouge pourpre tirant sur le brun et offrant une abondante tête rosée. Le nez ne sent pas vraiment la bière, mais pas aucunement non plus. Mis à part l’importante dose de sirop de framboises, On sent quelques traces de levures qui cassent le sucre abondant. En bouche, tel qu’on doit s’y attendre, une dominance de sucres maladroitement artificiels, quoique non écoeurants vu le soin mis sur le dosage. La pétillance de cette bière est somme toute très bonne, à l’instar d’une belle’’eau’’ gazéifiée. Je dois admettre que malgré tout, je m’attendais à furieusement pire. Disons qu’il m’a été de déguster bien pire que celle-ci en terme de bières fruitées!

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 Bottle: Murky dark copper-red with a small off-white cap...aromas of ripe berry fruit over the distinctive aromas of a dark ale....earthy-toasty-malty Tastes pretty much like it smells. Richer ale base than any fruit beer I have encountered... intersting fruity-eartyiness with the toasty malts...nice dry tart finish with a metallic twang in the after taste. Decent enough but over hyped and not worth 4 bucks a bottle.

Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2012
Pours a cloudy ruby red color with a big reddish white head. Initial taste is sweet raspberry them finishes with authentic sour raspberry. Like made with a mix of both extract and real fruit.
