My goodness I was happy when I heard someone I knew found a stash of old sampler can and this was it. Poured from 6oz can...best by date of 6-14-06. Shared with SuperNova777 and VinnieVanGogh
A- Poured a funky looking energy drink yellow. Half finger white head pops up and dies just as quick. No lacing on the sides of the glass.
S- The smelled like stale raspberry and had this distinct wet grain mixed with energy drink scent as well. The alcohol wasn't really there in the ending like I thought it was going to be. To be honest I thought this was going to smell a lot worse than what it did. Just smelled stale and sweet overall with a hint of alcohol (which was sweet) in the ending.
T- Stale raspberry hits your palate first with a light wet grain flavor that get masked quickly by the raspberry flavor. Midway through you can taste what seems like a light Bud flavor which once again gets overtaken by that stale raspberry flavor. Sweet like energy drink flavor on the backend with a hint of sweet alcohol finished this bastard up.
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation was still good for I suppose this style was after all these years. Stale raspberry and energy drink flavor is all I could taste on the palate and long into the aftertaste with sweet alcohol as being in the aftertaste. Flavors were kind of a mess with this beer which I expected to be honest with not only the brewery but also the age. I can't say there were any off flavors because they all tasted like off flavors in this one. No alcohol drying on the palate.
O- This just tasted like an old energy drink to me. No real standout flavors which made me think beer at all. I wasn't impressed with this beer but then at the same time I wasn't not impressed...does that make sense??

The only reason I loved & still love this cute little beer was because of it's uncanny ability to accompany summer-time 'get-togethers' of all shapes & sizes and the ever resultant broken property this beer seemed to always make sure of. Clearly, this is not a beer snobs beer. It was not a mythical creation discovered on the 1,000th attempt of some poor bastards accidental recipe, nor was it the product of love, hard work, dedication or the culmination of expertise. This beer was the product of a corporate knee-jerk reaction towards a seemingly ancient marketing strategy that somehow went right. This beer has a following that might rival Surge soda... so those of us who love it are all either Juggalos in denial, caffeine crazy pre-teens pretending to be beer lovers, or simply liked the stuff. Too bad its gone. But, oh well.

I remember when this came out. Always called this B to E. From what I remember this was a fruity drink. It was not bad. It is a shame that they don't brew it anymore. I kind of like it on a hot day. This was a Budweiser engery beer/ drink only came in 10oz cans.

It was one of the best beers I've ever tasted, it smelled good and it to affect after about 4 bottles. I think stores should start selling them again, with the same price.
Its nothing negative about this beer. I love the raspberry taste, the energy drink mixed in beer was great.
