look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy, almost opaque maroon red color with a decent pinkish head that retains moderately well producing a bit of lacing while it lasts. The aroma is all red raspberry with Barely a hint of malt. The taste is also tart fresh raspberry with a bit more of the light malt and yeast in the background than the aroma. Not as syrupy sweet or intense raspberry as Lindeman's Framboise, which is not a bad thing. Still this has plenty for the raspberry lover and a bit for the beer fancier as well. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fairly smooth and easy enough to drink.

I'm not usually a fan of fruity beers, but I am a sucker for raspberry, and Samuel Smith gives you plenty of it! As you would expect, it pours a dark red with a nice white head, and raspberry pretty much dominates the smell and flavor. It is sweet, perhaps a little too sweet, but is also slightly tart and combined with the crisp carbonation gives a fun, refreshing beverage. Great summer beer, or apertif. Light feel, a touch sticky from the sugar, but super easy to drink, with a manageable ABV.

Sam'l Smith's Organic Raspberry Ale.

A: Light red/raspberry-ish color, with a slightly pink head. Thin and fades to just a ring. Very slight lacing, with a very thin film of sheeting (no tears or legs, though).

S: Strong raspberry smell front the moment the bottle is opened! Nice amount of tartness from the raspberry scent.

T/MF: Just the faintest hint of sweetness. Good raspberry taste, though not nearly as potent as the smell. A slight let down, in that. Very dry, almost bitter, but not quite.

I had heard their fruit beers were really good, but I was expecting that to be a bit of an exaggeration. Though, the appearance and smell pleasantly surprised me, the taste was about what I expected, maybe slightly better. Still a pretty good beer. Perhaps, something to entice people from wines and ciders over to the beer world.

Poured from an 18.7 oz bottle, into a Petrus chalice.
