My wife asked me in the grocery store: "Doesn't this look like it might be good?" I said no, but we bought it anyway. She doesn't ask for that much, so what the hell?

Pours a pee yellow color with a big noisy, fizzy, soda-like white head that disappears in a flash leaving nothing behind.
Smells like sweet artificial fruit flavoring and tastes much the same. Sugary pomegranate and rasberry flavor is about all there is here. A very weak malt presence hanging around somewhere in the back. This stuff doesn't qualify as beer in my opinion. It's more like a "flavored malt beverage" a la Zima. Starts off way overcarbonated and ends flat and watery.

It's fairly refreshing and not undrinkable, but it ain't beer. Suffice it to say that I wouldn't recommend this to any beer lover.

Appearance:Pale golden in color, exceptionally clear, with profuse carbonation, and a moderate white head, which retains well.

Aroma: Strong notes of maraschino cherries, not at all like raspberries and pomegranates, which the label promises. There is nothing in the aroma that is suggestive of beer.

Taste: Mild cherry flavor from start to finish, with a moderate malt presence in the middle of the taste. The finish is dominated by a lingering cherry note.

Mouth feel: Rather thin, with aggressive carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: While not awful, this is more like a malternative than a fruit-flavored beer.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce clear glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a standard pint tap glass.

Appearance: Pale straw color with reddish tint.

Smell: Hint of raspberry puree.

Taste: Wow. It actually tastes like a diet raspberry soda.

Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy.

Overall: I have nothing to say about this beverage. If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all.

Apart from the "lime in the Corona" this is my first of the fruit beers. Should have been a little wary when all the girls went crazy for it. Poured about a half-inch head, faded in 15 seconds. Some lacing that lasted a bit. Very light. Could definitely smell the pom. rasberry fruits. Didn't taste like a beer at all. Rather, it resembled a good fruit drink gone a little sour. Was extremely easy to drink, but don't plan on going with what's easy in the future.

Michelob Ultra Pemegranate Raspberry comes in a clear twelve ounce bottle and pours a light golden color that seems to have a pinkish tint to it. The white head quickly falls to being very thin. It smells like Kool Aid. It tastes a bit like Kool Aid too (I can mostly taste raspberry, but there might be some pomegranate too), except it's not very sweet, followed by some adjunct flavor. A light wine cooler equivalent. I actually think it's better than most wine coolers I've had, but it's not very good for beer.

appearance: Soda like carbonation and a pale yellow transparency.

Smell: I smelled a slightly fruity light beer. Very plain and uninspired.

taste: Tasted like a watered down fruity soda. sour and not in a complex and crafty way. Tastes bland and artificial

mouthfeel: Water. No lingering notes.

Drinkability: This beer gets staler as you go.

A better version of Michelob Ultra, but the bar is set pretty low

Reviewed 3/5/2009 (bottle):

Pours a huge foamy white head, quickly diminishing, with a very clear pale yellow colored body. Very strong raspberry and cherry (pomegranate?) aromas, very enticing. Some malts too, but very sweet smelling. Mmmm, cherries. Very cherry taste, some bitter raspberry, and dryness on the end. Somewhat cloying sweetness. Very fruity tasting, but simple, very cherry, and some raspberry. Refreshing, but very sweet.
