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.

Stoned99 (1704) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Sample from wife’s glass. Aroma: raspberries sugar tarts, cereals, floral. App: dark red with brown tint, small white head. Taste and palate: light body, medium carbonation, medium sweetness, light dry and astringent acidity finish. Overall: not bad. Not my favourite raspberry ale / raddler but could be worst. Didn’t enjoy the finish and aroma and taste is just ok.

Ruby red colour with a nice retaining head. Aroma is raspberry and some malts. Flavour is light raspberry with some caramel malts but just doesn’t seem to blend seemlessly. Finishes syrupy.

A "pretty" beer but lacking a little in the substance category. Sweet raspberry flavor gets a little heady towards the bottom of the glass.

(bottle) Poured a hazy reddish amber with a good dense, slightly pink head. The aroma was very pleasant: tangy, yeasty and raspberry. Lovely palate - light bodied but the wonderful fine carbonation gives a silky mouthfeel. The flavour is very well balanced: subtle candy sweetness with subtle natural raspberry flavour and subtle interesting notes from the yeast. The finish has some slight cleansing bitterness. Overall this is an excellent, well balanced, interesting and drinkable raspberry beer. It is really quite different from a traditional Belgian framboise as it is not sour, more subtle and somehow richer and more rounded.

ljthiessen (1510) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
Can. Murky reddish-brown pour with a slightly pink-ish off-white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly tart raspberry, hints of gummy fruit candy. Taste is mostly the same, raspberry, some slight fake gummy candy notes, a little sweet and very slight tartness, finishes a little dry.

AleRider78 (1503) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2017
Picked up a tallboy at the Beer Store. Pours a large foamy bubbly pinkish head, good retention, has a murky reddish appearance. Thick patchy lacing. Aromas of berries, mainly raspberry but also hints of strawberries and cherries. Flavours are quite fruity, the raspberry flavour is fairly noticeable at first but gives way to a watery like Belgian yeast finish. Medium bodied. Excessive carbonation. Refreshing and nothing too crazy.

341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, ruby-red colour with a small pink head. Sweet flavour of raspberry and a little malt with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation.

Cartoonkhaki (1341) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2007
Cloudy red amber brown. Pink tan head... really cool looking. Raspberry aroma with faint matls lingering on through... Flavour is light raspberry with lingering malt... They balance out quite well with each other with a very light bitter hint hanging off my tongue. Over all finish was slightly dry with a medium body. Not bad!

ComradeK (1272) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2011
341ml bottle. Pours a murky pink-tinged chestnut, with a medium pinkish-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves acceptable lacing. The strong aroma of raspberry is nicely integrated with sweet malt notes on the nose, blending well with a smooth aroma of caramel. Mild raspberry fruit up front segues nicely into some reasonably strong fruity and floral hops. The merest hint of fruitcake then gives way to strong, sweet raspberry in the body, which lingers well into the finish. I’ll admit that I am not really a huge fan of fruit beers in general, and framboise in particular I’ve found to be far too much of a sweet fruit bomb. This beer, however, I quite enjoyed. The fruit is integrated with the base beer far better than in almost any other fruit beer that I have had, and whilst sweet, it is not cloyingly so. I wouldn’t drink it often, but I certainly enjoyed it more than St Ambroise’s apricot beer.

vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Marron foncé avec une mousse moyenne ruby/beige. L’arôme sourdiné de framboise aigre. Le goût est principalement aigre avec un peu de sucre. Un peu de framboise, mais pas trop et c’est un peu artificiel.
