Michigan Brewing's Celis Raspberry is a traditional style Belgian fruit beer that embodies a full flavor as well as tartness.

This is a rating for the original Celis Raspberry, which was one of the best fruit beers on the market. Normally, in order to get sufficient fruit flavor one would either have to add so much fruit that the beer became too sour or use flavorings which tasted chemical or medicinal. Somehow this brewer is able to make a raspberry beer that tastes like a fruit punch or wine cooler without any of the usual problems.

It has a strong aroma of raspberry, and the flavor is tart. This stuff has a nice raspberry zing to it. A good summer choice.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2003 The Celis brewery shall be sorely missed. This is one of my favorite beers. Not a traditional lambic, since it lacks the "wild" yeast, but a wonderful fruit beer. Delicious aroma and aftertaste, and very drinkable. Somewhat pink in color. Few beers are as quenching on hot day. Also a great compliment to chocolate cake!

The store was out of my regular Celis White, so I picked this up. I was very pleased. It has a nice raspberry bite to it that, to me, is a nice change from the same ol’ lager. Too many in a row, however, will get old fast.

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 it’s very nice. What it lacks in complexity it makes up for in accessibility.

This was nice, but a little light. The raspberry flavor, fortunately, was not too bitter as often is the case. The appearance was lacking, but overall a nice beer.

Raspberry, cotton candy, caramel, something perfumey. The nose is not what I expected. Body is clearish gold with slight ruby notes. Flavor of caramel, sweet but not syrupy or soda-esque raspberry/blueberry. Maplely malt finish with a bit of wheat, raspberry. I enjoy this more than most fruit beers

Yep, tastes like raspberries.
