A: Pours out to a flat and lowly carbonated presentation. Medium yellow color with a short lived foam head, and a total lack of lacing.
S: Strong indications of berries and mild malts. Slightly sweet, and mildly artificial. Still, it's got my interest.
T: Suprisingly well balanced for a light lager which dresses as a fruit beer; mild malt, traces of dry hops, a strong yet not cloying flavor of berries with a natural and mild sweetness. Quite nice.
M: Bubbly. Zesty. Sharp. Very crisp. Light bodied and goes down easy.
D: Average, but considering it came from AB, it's a step in the right direction. They're exploring new territory, which I commend, but why do this beer in a "light" format? Go full flavor and you'll have peoples attention. Worth trying. I could take it or leave it.

Clear bottle as pictured, part of a make your own sixpack from a local grocery. Pours a clear, pale yellow body alive with active carbonation. Tiny white head quickly vanishes without lacing. Aroma is some kind of berry Pez candy, not a bad smell except for a beverage masquerading as a beer. Very light bodied, very thin actually. Seltzer water carbonation rules the palate, lightly flavored a liquid Pez candy or Jolly Rancher aspect. The artificial fruitiness isn't sickingly sweet, to its credit,but that's about the only thing to recommend it. This might make a good beginner beer for someone who has never had an alcoholic beverage, making me think this is marketed for underage drinkers. Give me some fruit syrup and seltzer water and I could produce something very similar in taste. This Ultra is very forgettable. A waste of money at any price.

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, light gold in color, clear, high carbonation
Smell: berry and fruit
Taste: raspberries, blackberries, and a touch of grass. Can’t really taste the pomegranate.
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, sweet with a slight bitter spike
Overall: A decent beer that is barely beer enough to not be a wine cooler. Not a fruit drink, but not the first thing I would go for. Of this series, it is probably my least favorite as well.

The beer pours a clear, very light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is raspberries and bready malt, without much else. The flavor is pomegranate, raspberries, corn, bread and water. Not only is the beer very watery feeling, it tastes like a glass of water with a splash of fruit juice added to it. Medium carbonation and a thin, watery mouthfeel.

More alcoholic juice than beer. It's light, tastes and smells fruity, and goes down fairly easy, but you don't want to have too many or you will get sick to the stomach. It does not go well with food either. But its light and tastes OK. Good for those who don't like actual beer, but like to pretend they do, I guess.

This was free at a recent marathon runner's expo. Normally, the best tasting beer is free beer, but that does not really apply to this beer. Poured a pale, translucent gold with a smallish wispy head. Head quickly disappears. Pomegranate raspberry highlights the nose and taste of this brew, both vying for your attention. Really light, ultra light on taste. Mostly just overcarbonation and alcohol is all you notice. Would drink again if free, but doubtful that I'd ever purposely purchase this one.

Appearance is of the fizzy yellow beer vein, with a quickly fleeting head. Light specks of lacing left behind. Aroma tart raspberries of the artificial kind at that, smells like candy wheres the beer. Straight up carbonation in flavor with a raspberry syrupy flow, pretty much unbearable. Definitely brought into my home by friends, fizzy thin cloying mouthfeel no thanks. Drinkability this is the worst of the three at least the two citrus based versions were refreshing and no worse than a chill, Bud Light lime, or a Corona with a lime.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer has a pale lemon yellow crystal clear body that is very thin. There is a snow-white head of big bubbles that fades away pretty quickly. The big carbonation of large bubbles race to the surface.
S- This beer has big notes of red licorice candy and a faint hint of raw grain buried underneath. The smell is not really a sweet smell but a bit on the dry side.
T- This beer has the taste of mineral water and a light fruit punch note that increases toward the finish. The finish has a dry soft green herbal note in the aftertaste but it doesn't have any hop qualities. There is a faint raw grain note aswell. The taste is crisp and dry, especially at the finish.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a big fizz finish that cleans the palate.
D- This beer is very light with very little flavor. The fruit flavors were very chemical and dry and there were no real qualities I look for in beer. I think I would rather drink water but it wasn't a drain pour.

Pomegranate raspberry? In a Michelob? Ok. I'll try to keep an open mind.
Doesn't look like much. Actually, it looks almost exactly like a normal Michelob. Can't say I'm terribly impressed. Smells almost exactly like a wine cooler. That syrupy sweet, overpowering chemical fruit-impostor scent is unmistakable.
Tastes ever so slightly fruity, and slightly astringent. Actually expected a lot more flavor from something that smells so strongly. It is, however, more enjoyable than actually drinking Mic Ultra.
Not sure what to make of this one. It's not undrinkable, but it's pretty far from being good. It's more a beer with no real reason for existing. One can only wonder what Mic was shooting for here.

A - Basic yellow-gold lager color, with an ephemeral fizzy head. Gather ye foam-buds while ye may, because this head ain't stickin' around for long.
S - Fruity Pebbles, Fruit Loops, and Flintstones chewable vitamins.
T - Fruity Pebbles halved with grape-nuts. The fruitiness is mediated by a husky graininess that actually helps keep this one together. The graininess keeps it on the beer side, and off of the malternative or winecooler side (the darkside IMO).
M - Thin and fizzy. Quenching, but nothing special.
D - Not as bad as I anticipated, actually. This is probably my favorite of the Michelob Ultra fruity beer series. This, along with Lime Cactus and Tuscan Orange or Apricot or whatever is much better than the regular Michelob Ultra, which is tasteless IMO.

A - light golden yellow with a thin, loose, bubbly head that fizzles away immediately; huge amounts of carbonation rising to the top like soda
S - huge artificial raspberry and pomegranate
T - grainy, syrupy, bitter-sweet, artificial raspberry and pomegranate
M - way over carbonated, very crisp, light bodied
This is what it advertises to be. It's very light and has a fruity flavor. The carbonation is the worst part. It's even worse than the most carbonated soda. I'll won't ever be picking this up again.

Appearance: It's a clear, very light golden color. Very modest head with little retention and lacing.
Smell: Very fruity. Berry scents are somewhat overwhelmingly sweet. It does not resemble the smell of beer much at all. Much closer to a wine cooler. But, it kind of smells like cough syrup.
Taste: It's very sweet. Too sweet. Berry flavors are indeed strong. There is a bit of a corn flavor to it as well. No malt or hops to speak of.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: It's light bodied. It doesn't taste good. That alone makes it incredibly hard to drink. I'm not a big fan of fruit/vegetable beers and this is no exception. But there are a few out there that are much better than this. Overall, it's not good. I find it hard to call it a beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle.
A- Pours a pale clear yellow color. This had a small half finger white head that dies down instantly. No lacing left on the glass.
S- No beer aroma on this at all. This is all raspberry but almost too artifical smelling. Reminds me of this raspberry jam my family would buy when I was younger. Some light pomegranate in this but quickly gets covered by raspberry aroma.
T- This doesn't taste like beer at all. Raspberry upfront of this that is a little watered down overall. Pomegranate flavors come in but are sweet and to the point before dying into a watery raspberry flavor. There is a light beer finish on this that brings forth a sweet grainy flavor.
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is very high on this beer. Raspberry left everywhere on the palate into the aftertaste with some light grains in the overall aftertaste. Crisp and clean tasting. Watery at times in the mouth.
D- Drinkable beer. Better than the other flavors they came out with. Still this is not really beer I think just some watered down raspberry flavor with some artifical sweetness added to it.
