3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dull reddish brown brew with an almost white head. Cloudy. Sour aroma with hints of yellow pound cake and berries. Taste is light and simple, but clena and good. A little sweetness with some raspberry notes, a bit of sour in the finish. Very pleasant to drink.

Bottle. Highly carbonated, light yellow color with some reddish hue. Aroma is an odd skunky fruit. Thankfully, the taste is better, a little sweet, but not too much. Relative short finish, no lingering aftertaste. Iím not really into the fruit beers... this is okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, slightly hazy, little head. Aroma is raspberry. Taste is a bit calmer - a decent amount of malt taste with raspberry behind it. Finish is a bit tart with berry flavors. Itís actually not bad as itís not as overpowering as over raspberry beers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy, amber with a nice reddish cast. Smal white head fades to moderate, super-fine lacing. Nose is sweet, intoxicating, and full of fresh raspberry essence. Light body, medium carbonation, very sweet without being cloying, light and refreshing. Pleasantly tart and sweet on the finish. Some would call this frou-frou, but as fruit beers go itís very nice. What it lacks in complexity it makes up for in accessibility.

Very fruity, light . Raspberry (obviously), and a bit floral. Low ABV; enjoyed this more than other fruity brews. Recommended.

Rated the original Celis before Michigan took over. Pours like a pale ale. Nose and taste is very light raspberry and light malts/wheat. Rated 10/24/2000

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
has a clear (there is a little haze) faint pink and red with gold yellow pour, gave a few white bubbles when poured but hardly any head appeared,
I was surprised to find there was a small ring and film of dark sediment on the bottom of the bottle,
prominent aroma of raspberry like fruit with faint fruit like sweet white grape and others fruit I could not pin down, a little wheat and malt fragrances with faint lemon citrus, and some fruit juice sweetness,
flavors of light raspberry and other fruit, there was not as much sweetness on the palate as on the nose, also, there was some lemon citrus in this,
and this beer gave a little prickling and bitterness at the finish, little sweetness if any after the finish,
has a less than medium mouth feel,
I can see this beer as refreshing on a hot Summer day, I think having a bit more Wit beer influence would have made the drink better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Transparent rose colored body. Body looks very similar to a blush wine. The small white head tapers off quickly. Leaves some lacing behind in the glass.
S- Very sugary. Smells like raspberry flavored candy. Bready malt smell is also detectable.
T- Initial taste is a dry, clean raspberry taste. Bread and hints of raspberry linger in the back of the palate. Suprisingly hints of alcohol are there too. Overall taste is pretty light.
P- Medium carbonation and light body.
O- This is a decent example of a fruit beer. I would drink it again. Great on a hot summer day. I probably wouldnít session it; but ti would be a good break from a session.

Some of the worst color Iíve ever seen in a beer and a nose that is equally unique if not as bad. The flavor is ok if rather underwhelming.
