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

Bottle, 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.

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 wouldn’t session it; but ti would be a good break from a session. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-11-2007 04:23:07

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

Pour is a peach color with almost no head. Aroma is raspberry and not much else. Flavor is less fruity than the aroma and kind of sour in the end. Might be good with Thanksgiving dinner but for for a sample its pretty poor.

Gold with a white head. Aromas of sugar, raspberry and wheat. Decent on the palate with a raspberry flavor along with wheat and a sugary finish.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a weird slightly murky translucent pinkish peach color with a medium thick foamy white froth. Big raspberry aroma, but it’s like raspberry hard candy, floral, botanical, creamy vanilla, raspberries and cream. Flavor follows but is way more artificial tasting, lots vanilla that is weird with all the floral notes, potpourri, a bit spicy, plastic, light tart raspberries but mostly overwhelmed by the creamy vanilla. Medium/light bodied, thin with lots of lively carbonation.

Bottle. Lots of vanilla flavor. Minimal aroma of vanilla, and cherry extract. Sweet, but not one I’ll try again.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Sampled at Lundeen’s Brew Ha-Ha 2009. Pours a pink-orange color with a small white head that leave some low amounts of lacing. Aroma has some light grainy notes and raspberry syrup. Flavor has a light clove note, very light malt note and all the rest is raspberry. Very light body with a thin texture and high carbonation. The color of the brew is not really a natural color with the flavor not cloying but is very pronounced of raspberry.

Beautiful fruity raspberry scent. Clear orangy copper in color. Very clean berry taste with a slight malt aftertaste. Overall, it’s not as sweet as I expected... deliciously smooth.
