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, its a unique summertime treat.

Stoned99 (1469) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Sample from wifes 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. Didnt enjoy the finish and aroma and taste is just ok.

Pyobon (1377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2012
(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.

Cartoonkhaki (1257) - 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!

Marron fonc avec une mousse moyenne ruby/beige. Larme sourdin de framboise aigre. Le got est principalement aigre avec un peu de sucre. Un peu de framboise, mais pas trop et cest un peu artificiel.

ComradeK (1198) - 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. Ill admit that I am not really a huge fan of fruit beers in general, and framboise in particular Ive 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 wouldnt drink it often, but I certainly enjoyed it more than St Ambroises apricot beer.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Pours a cloudy vibrant red accompanied with a small pinkish head. Smells sour, very little malt characteristic. Tastes closest to a raspberry than any other beer Ive had with noticeable carbonation.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 341ml bottle. Pours a nice deep, murky red with pink highlights, and a think, creamy pink head. The aroma is mostly rasberry, with some hops and a touch of alcohol. The taste is the same, with a malty finish and after-taste, and touch of sourness. Heavier mouth-feel, but nothing too heavy. Decent, but not spectacular. The aroma is a little annoying, but the taste makes up for it.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a deep, unfiltered, velvet red with a large, fluffy, pink head. Aroma is nice with some natural raspberry jam sweetness and tartness. Something about the taste seemed a little off, hops too earthy or something metallic? Body is light and dry. Overall, looked good, smelled good, but the taste didnt come together. Raspberry taste doesnt come through and very little beer here.

sulawang (1143) - - APR 19, 2012
pours cloudy brownish/red with a decent dissipating head, layer of retention, some sticky lacing, some slow-moving CO2 streams near the surface. Fruity red raspberries on the nose. Burst of 4/10 sweet aromatic red raspberries initially, transitions into 5/10-level sourness that isnt overpowering but balanced with brown sugar malts, a silky creamy mouthfeel in the mids, finishing with a minor tartness and 6/10-level caramel sweetness & bitterness. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, good carry, good drinkability. The finish ends a little rough in the mouth.
