Sampled tonight on 3/3/14. New for this year and comes in a 8-ounce can. Can chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured into a flute glass.

Pours a red wine in pour with really no head or lacing to speak of. The aroma is of Raspberries of course with some sweeteners. The taste is the same with good raspberry flavor coming through with a hint of ol' 'Bud Lime' at the end. I liked it better than their Cran-Ber-Rita I tried a couple of months ago. Overall, it wasn't bad.

Poured from a 25 oz. can. Has a purple color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is full of raspberry goodness. Taste is raspberries, sweet, just a touch of tartness, alcohol well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while I wouldn't want a steady diet of it, this wasn't all that bad.

I try to rate beers to style. This is really a malt beverage or alcopop not beer as such. It's not bad for what it is and makes a nice change from beer. It pours a purple color with a minimal white head from a ten ounce can. The smell is sweet and has some raspberry notes. The flavor is on the sweet side but definitely tastes like raspberry. It's decent if this is what you are looking for but it doesn't really resemble beer.

Serving style : 8 oz can, poured into 8 oz glass. 8.0% ABV. WHOA!

Appearance (2) : Grape Juice cocktail, opaque, with no head. Like a raspberry grape soda.

Smell (3) : Smells like raspberry soda with a faint pinch of alcohol.

Taste (4) : Pretty good actually. Lots of raspberry flavor. It's nothing like a beer, so if you're expecting beer (or Bud Light), you'll be in for a rude awakening. For a mixed drink in a can it's better than decent. It tastes like a rich, fruity raspberry soda with an alcohol kick. Just a hint - a hint of sour grain muskiness on the backside but not enough to even think about.

Mouthfeel (3) : don't even know if this drink deserves a mouthfeel category. It's carbonated and a little cotton-candy like with a residual syrup on the finish. A little bit of that grain alcohol surfaces as well.

Overall (3.23) : I like this "beer". It's actually a margarita in a can, and I think AB needed to market it under a brand name that would sell, so they slapped "Bud Light" on the can and called it good. It's nothing at all like a Bud Light, and pretty much nothing at all like a beer. For what it is, it tastes great - but if Beer Advocate has these things on here, they might as well start adding Smirnoff and Mike's to the list of reviewed products, as this is NOT a beer. I don't quite know how to rate this. I enjoy it, so I guess I'll rate it how I want.

Bud Light Lime Raz-Ber-Rita brewed by Anheuser-Busch.This brew pours out a dark purple color with no head. You smell the raspberry and that is about it. As far as the taste it is raspberry. Not much for a brew but it goes down nice and smooth. This brew is a good for the summer time. Overall I'm giving this brew a 3 out of 5. There is nothing bad about this brew. I will buy this again to switch it up from the mainstream brews out there on the market.
