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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beer! Disclosure: I love raspberries and fruity beers! I am also a fan of Lindeman's framboise but this isn't as tart and has a perfect balance or fruit and actual "beer" taste! I highly recommend trying this beer! I bet it's to-die-for on tap!
