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.

This was another single that I came across during a recent shopping trip in support of a CANQuest (TM) trade. Curiosity seems to have gotten the best of me.
Once more, the harder that I poured, the quicker the fizzy, bone-white head seemed to dissipate. Color was a pale yellow with NE-quality clarity and a good bit of carbonation in evidence. Nose was a bit too perfume-like for my taste, certainly of raspberry, but much too sweet, almost like chemically-engineered esters than anything natural. Mouthfeel was thin and watery with a fizziness like pop and a really sweet flavor, again more like pop than beer. It has usually been my experience that raspberries impart a tartness in beer, not the sweetness that this had. Maybe it could be blamed on the pomegranate, but it was just a beer for people who really don't like beer. Finish was still much too sweet for my liking.

Trying another beer out of the Michelob Ultra pack. This one is Pomegranate Raspberry. I'm not expecting much out of these beers but sheer curiosity has led me to giving them a try. The dragonfruit-peach was almost non-beer like, so we'll see how this one goes...
This beer pours a bright yellow color, and slightly more than finger of foam forms and lasts for almost 2 minutes. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. The aroma is quite sweet, almost fruit-punch like with perhaps a bit of soapiness underneath. The mouthfeel is very fizzy. This beer does have some light grain flavors, more so than the dragonfruit-peach, but the generic sweet berry flavors indeed takes up the entire flavor profile. The sweetness lingers onto the aftertaste, with a hint of futile dryness barely making itself noticeable. The brew concludes with no alcoholic warmth.
I like this one better than the dragonfruit-peach, but it really isn't too close to beer either. These fruit-flavored Michelob Ultras really are for non-beer drinkers.
