Pours a clear orange goldish color with a fizzy white head. Smell is raspberries, coriander and cloves. Taste is spiced heavily with cloves and subtle raspberries. There is a good balance between the raspberries and the strong clove character. Mouthfeel is lighter in body....good carbonation. Great for the summertime. Drinkable for the most part.

A: This poured a hazy pinkish gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like creamy yeast and sugary artificial raspberry, with some copper and cotton candy/bubble gum.
T: It tasted like artificial strawberry and raspberry and bubble gum, with some creamy yeast and cheap white wine. It had a sweet and gross aftertaste.
M: It was oily with moderate carbonation. Nice and slick body.
D: This beer didn't seem natural at all. More like a cotton candy wit beer than anything else. The scent and taste weren't very good at all. At least the body was nice, but it was still tough to finish the glass. Not recommended.

Possibly the worst beer I have ever tasted. Bought as part of a Celis Variety case, and unfortunately there were 6 of these in the box. To be fair, the other 3 varieties weren't bad, but this stuff was just wrong. Poured a decent light purply color with a little too much carbonation and minimal head. Smelled like the worst cough medicine you ever had, and tasted about the same. One of the few beers I ever poured down the drain after a few mouth fulls. Tried 2 more bottles just in case I had a bad one, but those were just as bad. THe fruit taste was so strong and overwhelming it only resembled beer by the fact it had bubbles and alcohol in it.
