A: The beer is relatively clear reddish purple in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short pink head that completely faded away very quickly.
S: Light to moderate aromas of mixed berries are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has artificial flavors of mixed berries—blackberries and blueberries seem to stand out in particular. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The berry flavors completely obscure the taste of the underlying beer, but when you consider that this is Bud Light, this might not necessarily be considered a bad thing. It starts to become a little cloying as the beer warms up so this beer is something that is best drank cold or chilled with ice.

Served in a tumbler.

That damn mango version a few days ago gave me a taste for the other flavors, so raspberry it is tonight. This stuff pours a clear fuchsia topped by a minor wisp of transitory dirty-tan bubble foam. The nose comprises sweet raspberry syrup undercut by a few twists of lime. The taste brings in more of the same, the lime juice really only adding a bit of tartness to the proceedings. The body is a light medium, with a fizzy carbonation and a soda-like feel. Overall, not much to say here: it's tasty enough to me, as I like the sweeter, soda-like flavors. It's nothing special, nor truly praise-worthy in any way, but it gets the job done in an alcohol-delivery sense.

Nothing can prepare you for the color of Barney the Dinosaur in a glass. Barely noticeable fleeting pink head dwindles quicker than a fart in the wind. Aroma reminds me of the flavor of a Warhead sour candy blue raspberry, with default berry notes and some alcoholic medicinal qualities. Even over ice I don't see how it would help this Raz-ber-Rita...wow. The madness has to stop, but I'm sure somebody out there enjoys this type of abuse, different strokes for different folks. Harsh ass fusel alcohol finish amongst the mild salted berry concentrated sugar notes. Headache inducing almost instantly, puts a smile on my face to know that I will never walk down the path of canned Bud Light Lime concoction's lemmings have gone...which has one ultimate outcome a direct path toward a black out drinking session or worse diabetes induced coma (which also leads to a black out in a roundabout way). Mouthfeel makes your acid reflux come out of hibernation and burn your ears for consuming something this putrid, gag reflex inducing carbonated man made liquids combine to form this shit. Overall, I would never guide anybody toward this path of enlightenment, or eternal black out for that matter.

I have held this gem in abeyance with its brethren, awaiting pic approval. The stars have aligned and I am determined to rid my reefer of big azz CANs taking up precious space.

From the CAN: "Margarita with a Twist"; "Try It Over Ice!"; "Enjoy Responsibly Please Recycle".

Once more, I got a loud Crack!, but given that there was going to be 25 (!) fl. oz. of it, the Glug would not be inverted. This must be a joke, right? If CrAN was magenta, then this was definitely raspberry. It fizzed in the glass like soda pop, making a fizzy two-fingered head of deep purple before taking a bow and fading into obscurity. I was left with a glass filled with fizzing, popping liquid, defying me to CANtinue. Nose smelled of artificial raspberry, like kiddie CANdy, which was entirely disappointing. I miss my paternal Grummy and her raspberry bushes, which smelled as fragrant and enticing in the summer as anything that I CAN remember. This smelled like a travesty. Color was a deep purple (SRM = N/A) with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was thin, but fizzy, reinforcing the idea of soda pop. The flavor was that same artificial raspberry taste that I garnered from the nose. Better drinking from the chem lab, I suppose, but I may not have been their target audience. I was not going to stoop to adding ice, as I could not see how that would help, but it needed help and in no small way. Man, this was sickeningly sweet and much too close to soda pop for comfort. Finish was sweet, fruity and just not my bag.

A: Pours a clear but opaque plum purple in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom along the sides of the glass and hints of garnet red highlights. The beer has an eighth of a finger tall fizzy pink head that quickly reduces to absolutely nothing, not even a thin ring along the edges. No lacing is observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of artificial berries (not distinctly raspberry but it could have been any mixed berries) reminding me somewhat of the old blue raspberry Slush Puppy smell but overall it smells sweet. Hints of alcohol and something almost medicinal towards the finish.

T: Upfront there is a very sweet almost Slush Puppy like (if you were like me and put about 10 extra pumps of syrup in it) sweet artificial raspberry, and by sweet I mean really sweet. Hints of alcohol towards the finish. Slight hints of sweet lime juice (like the Rose's Lime syrup) in the aftertaste.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of alcohol warming mid-body.

O: Overall this is a beer for people that do not like the taste or smell of beer, the fact that it is made from Bud Light Lime is almost completely hidden. Too sweet for my taste but it is not offensive.

Poured from 25oz can into a pint glass. I do not know what is wrong with me, giving all the Bud Light Lime 'ritas a try. Uff da.

Appearance: candy purple with a light haze and no head. God save me.

Smell: sweet and fake artificial raspberry. That said -- it's not dramatically worse than a lot of other raspberry beers I've had, if a little more artificial.

Taste: sweet raspberry (too sweet) with perhaps a little beeriness underneath. Not good, but probably the best of the 'ritas I've had so far.

Mouthfeel: light body and lightly carbonated. Nothing here to recommend it, but not completely insipid.

Overall: still an alcopop, not a beer. But drinkable. I have to imagine that I am on a boat or something.

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.

Raz-Ber-Rita pours a reddish purplish color with no head and lots of bubbles. There is a very sweet smell that smells like a chemical factory. The taste has a very strange fake chemical raspberry flavor, with hints of cheap beer trying to come through. Flat, and while prominent flavors, they are bad. Overall it's chemically and rather fake, avoid.
