12oz bottle into my Stone pint glass. I had this at a friend's birthday in May and it was the most ridiculously horrendous beer I'd had at the point. Had to try it again!
A: Light straw yellow with tremendous clarity and exceptional soda-like head - brilliantly fleeting and soapy white. Woohoo!
S: I'm calling BS on the advertising. This should be Michelob Ultra Raspberry Pomegranate, 'cos honestly, they pom is an after thought. Medicinally artificial raspberry flavor, I'd describe this as one-dimensional if "repulsive" wasn't an aroma description
T: Skunk light lager + artificial raspberry flavor + corn syrup + metallic finish. Need I say more?
M: Soda-like carbonation and horrendously light and watery. Cringe-worthy. Dry finish but it's metallic.
D: Nope, I ain't drinking any more!

Picked this one up cause I'm a sucker for novelty. Out of the bottle this beer was a pale gold color with a fizzy white head that was short lived. It did, however, retain a pure white soap-skim ring that laced tiny bubbles moderately. The aroma was sweet and all raspberry extract. The flavors were at first sweet, the fruit extracts hit me as decent but then it all went south. Stale grain and stale corn. No pomegranate flavor can be pulled out of the raspberry syrup that is stomping all over it. Hops and malt are quashed too. Mouthfeel is very fizzy and a little rough, the body light. To its only credit it is crisp but the aftertaste is unpleasant and metallic so even that's hard to enjoy. I always hate to fail a beer but this one deserves it.

I picked this one up when I made a sampler six pack because it looked interesting as I am a fan of (real) lambics.
A: Almost clear amber, like watered down apple juice
S: Distinct raspberry and pomegranate smell that is appealing, it also has almost a diet soda scent.
T: This is the most disgusting beer I have ever tasted, watery as hell, almost no juice flavor, practically no beer flavor, and it is offensive to the other beers that sit on the self next to it.
M: It honestly feels like you're drinking mineral water, and then you get a nasty aftertaste which I guess could be described as the beer flavor.
D: I somehow managed to choke this down, I would NEVER buy it again and I might ask for my money back. I honestly didn't hate regular Michelob Ultra, which isn't great in its own regrad, but this is a wine cooler trying to be a beer and it just fails miserably.

Apperance: Yellowish with a small head.
Aroma: Fruits, Marsipan, Cherries. Very chemical and un-natural.
Flavor: Dr.Pepper mixed with a bit of water anyone ? Raspberry, Caramel, Artificial sweeteners.
Palate: Just dry and boring. Very sweet.
This is more like a soda than a beer and should be avoided.

The FDA dictates that chocolate must contain a certain percentage of cacao or it will be called chocolate FLAVORED. I wonder if a similar standard should be applied to beer. There just isn't anything "beery" about this.
a: This is barely tinted, a faint yellowish color. It pours with a little short lived fizz.
s: Mild artificial raspberry. Smells a bit like Smarties. Not a trace of beer.
t: Cloyingly sweet fake fruit flavors. No beer here either.
m: Slightly fizzy and very thin.
d: I admit that this doesn't taste absolutely horrible, it just doesn't taste like beer at all.

Sampled tonight on 5/25/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage Michelob thumbprint glass goblet.
Pours a very light straw yellow in color with a very small fizzy white head. No lacing is seen to mention. The aroma is better than the taste and is of some sweet fruits. The taste is well...really bad! Like drinking a lightly flavored club soda or seltzer water. Way to much carbonation, and even more than other Bud products. Overall, I will not be drinking this one again!

Ultra light in color, almost white. Little white fizzy head disappears quickly. Lots of CO2. Smells a lot like flavored seltzer, lighting up the nose. Not recognizable as pomegranate or raspberry but fruity in nature.
Tastes like flavored seltzer, and mildly flavored at that. Literally like those zero calorie, zero grams of fat seltzers that all all fizz and a little bit of flavor. It's hard to say this would be recognizable as beer. I have never had the straight Mich Ultra. so I don't even know if that tastes like beer.
No feel to speak of unless you like bubbles.
Drinkable? How can you deny it? Drinkable as beer...NFW.

Pours a extremely pale golden color. A fluffy two finger tall head perches itself for longer than expected ,and then leaves lots of lacing(probably from the sugary additives). This nose is sweet,not in a good way. Very artificial and reminiscent of sugary pixi-stix,good when your an adolescent,not good when they combine it with beer. The flavors are much the same. Quite offensive in my opinion,reminds me of watered down Clearly Canadian. Very thin and watery,though the carbonation is somewhat acceptable. The finish is of sticky artificial sweetener and candy corn. This is horrible...no wonder my girlfriend loves it.

As a person who doesn't care for the majority of beers, and stick with the flavored/spiced/fruit beers, i was looking forwared to tasting this.
poured bright unnatural yellow, with a head that looked more like a soda than a beer.
smelled like artificial raspberries
tasted like a light, watered down beer and artificial raspberries, couldn't taste any pomegranate.
mouthfeel felt OK, a little more fizzy than average, but acceptable
not what i consider drinkable... as soon as i finished a bottle, i wased it down with a different beer or some soda, just to get that artifical taste out of my mouth.

this got left at my house a few weeks back and curiousity got the best of me.
pours out a crystal clear very pale gold colour with out much head and therefore extremely little lace left. aroma is mostly raspberries and maybe a little kiwi or something...i suppose the pomegranate. seltzer water with a bit of fruit flavoring and a distinct metallic twang in the taste department. very little malt character and even less hopping. mouthfeel is crisp with a carbonated bite that tingles the tongue. overall body is very lean and lacking. about what i expected. drinkability is therefore low...very low. although if someone handed me one of these ice cold on a hot scorching afternoon after a day of doing concrete work, i could probably pound it down in three gulps and let out a massive belch with an "oh yeah!"
definitely marketed towards women and maybe the female fitness crowd.

Had a chance to try this a few days ago. Thankfully, the store let me buy a single bottle.
It neither looks, smells, nor has a mouthfeel similar to beer ... other than perhaps other similar "ultra"/"low carb" beers. Almost more like flavored club soda with beer-like tastes.
The fruit flavoring wasn't overpowering, which, frankly, was surprising. I'm not sure what they were going for here. If I wanted a fruit flavored alcoholic drink with carbonation, this wouldn't be my choice, and if I specifically want a beer with fruit characteristics, this wouldn't be my choice either.

out of the lost notebook, reviewed from notes.
again super light pour with a touch of reddish amber mixed in among the golden light body. small head of white rises up but does not stay long and quickly fades off into nothing. aromas is again fake fruity notes, a touch of tartness though was there i will admit, but it was fleating an just not at all goo. again no aftertaste and the body was like that of water.
thankfully the last one of the night as they were just not good beers, more like wine coolers then beers for me, again just not good.
