L: Pours a beautiful blood red as if it were beet juice. Minimal head recedes quickly leaving almost no surface haze.

S: Definitely raspberry from the second you open it and some malt on the nose too. Not super fragrant once in the glass and sitting for a minute.

T: Wow, pleasantly surprised. I like this more than the strawberry fruit ale they offer. Has a very natural taste of ripe red raspberries. I am surprised they pulled that off so well. Non beer drinkers who like fruit wine would love this beer.

F: Typical Samuel Smith but a tad bit bigger bubbles. I would have preferred smaller bubbles to round out the raspberries ripe profile with a touch of zing across the tongue. You get a little of that here.

Overall this gives me hope that I might like other fruit ales. I found the strawberry fruit ale from Samuel Smith to be natural tasting but a bit to bright and sharp. This is much more rounded and rich tasting. Would be great for a summer BBQ with pork.
