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.

Reynolds314 (3470) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2011
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.

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 isn’t 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.

Damico (3147) - 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.

Bouteille de 341ml, robe rougeâtre, arome de petits fruits, en bouche, c’est la framboise!

solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Not entirely pleasant. Texture is very syrupy. Pours red without much head or lacing. Sweet finish. Raspberry very present, even abusive. Bottle from my buddy’s fridge at the end of the night.

Ferris (16270) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Draft - Raspberry jam. Cloudy reddish amber with a nice white head. Light tartness, raspberry and a light finish. Not enough of anything to make this interesting.

Stoned99 (1648) - 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.

Robe rouge foncée voilée surmontée d’une mousse rose qui s’estompe. Arômes de framboise mures et de céréales. Saveurs de framboises mures, de torréfié et de céréales.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2006
Bottle. Dark, murky mahogany with a medium white head and lacing. The aroma consists of cherries and tart fruity raspberries. The flavour is typically simple sweet and syrupy though there is a touch of fruit tartness. Not all that great but it’s still drinkable.

jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle. Ruby body, with a small white-pink head and light lacing on the glass. Tart raspberry aroma with mild hints of cherry, touch muted at times. Overly sweet fruit flavour, raspberry jam, with a touch of green vine and tartness. Average to medium palate. This has a big fruit factor, and its sort of nice but it needs more complexity to make it drinkable in any kind of quantity.
