Have to admit..Michelob has always (in my eyes) been a fairly decent "American" beer...But..We just bought a 6 pack of the Michelob Ultra Pomegranate Raspberry and are so disappointed we have no idea what to do with the ones we have left..What a watery worthless experience these were!!..Bad enough that a Scot like myself turned down a 2nd one and my wife barely got through half of the first..If this is America's idea of an "Ultra" beer...I think I'm gonna start going tea-total!!! Sheeesh
Its is so tasteless that I have no idea why people will drink it...First impression is that it will be good...Smells kinda of nice but however I tried to keep an open mind I couldn't think of anything good to say about this..Truth be known I have drank Fruit/water drinks that have been better.
No taste,No after taste..I believe the only thing I can say on the up-side is that it doesn't "Fill you up" like a regular beer..
This is definitely a mistake I will not make again!!

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

12 oz bottle poured in to pint glass

A: Clear, straw yellow. Foamy, two-finger head, no lacing... lots of bubbles.

S: Smells of pomegranate and raspberry, just like the title says.... not much else.

T: Tastes just like it smelled. Very sweet almost like a New York Selters water....

M: Very light bodied, highly carbonated, crisp and sweet. Somewhat refreshing but no beer like.

D: If you miss Zima, this might be for you.... But if you want beer forget about it...

Slightly darker than pale amber with no hint of red. Shouldn't a pomegranate raspberry beer be some shade of red? What's the point of using a clear glass bottle if your product is going to be urine yellow? The appearance tells me that extracts were used (a negative) and that artificial colors weren't (a positive). The cotton white crown resembles melted styrofoam, crackles as it fades and leaves no more than a few scraps of sudsy lace.

This beer-like beverage (at least I'm hoping it'll be beer-like) smells nothing like beer. It smells like an alcopop; or what I imagine an alcopop smells like. It also smells like liquified raspberry candy. I can imagine a 'no alcohol' version of this stuff appealing to ten year olds. If it tastes like it smells, that is.

Michelob Ultra Pomegranate Raspberry isn't very sweet and it tastes vile. I thought I'd be drinking something akin to a raspberry wine cooler, but now that I mull it over, adding that much sugar would defeat the purpose of calling it Ultra (that is, 'ultra' low in carbs and calories).

This is truly horrible beer that almost defies description. It's barely grain-like with a pervasive artificial fruit flaver mixed with a melted plastic nastiness that results in an involuntary grimace each time I force myself to take a sip.

The mouthfeel is pretty close to lightly carbonated water. Only a minor slickness makes the distinction possible. To be truthful, it's hard to get a handle on things when my taste buds are begging me to stop the abuse.

I didn't expect to love Ultra Pomegranate Raspberry, but I did expect it to be drinkable. Live and learn. According to one of their press releases, the brewery's target is females, ages 21-49. It's hard to imagine anyone liking this abomination, no matter their sex, age or degree of dementia.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Appearance- It is a straw gold almost brass color with a weak white head and lace.

Smell- It has sort of a kool-aid like smell to it. The aroma is very sweet.

Taste- It has an overly fruity infused with a cheap pils taste.

Mouthfeel- Thin and watery.

Drinkability- It is a great beer for people who want to say they drink beer but don't or a training wheel beer.

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

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.
