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.

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.

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.

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: 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

12 oz bottle received from my buddy Dyan in our latest trade. I've heard a lot of bad things about this one, so I was pretty excited to give it a shot.

Appearance: Pale yellowish color, not quite MGD 64 pale, but close enough. Pours with a surprisingly decent head, but it disappears almost instantly.

Smell: Alcopop all the way, this doesn't resemble beer in the slightest, nor does it have a good fruit aroma. Funky artificial berry is all I'm getting here... Smells a bit like fruity chewing gum.

Taste & mouthfeel: More beery than the aroma implies, a light and semi-sweet malt base is felt beneath the fruit, which is still rather dominant. I'm all for fruit beer, but it helps when the fruit tastes like actual fruit and not some kind of funky fruit extract, which is the case here. The mouthfeel is light as can be and somewhat overcarbonated.

Overall, not as bad as I was hoping. It's definitely bad, but I've had worse. Nice try, Dyan. I'll have to see about getting you some Amnesia IPA.

From 355 ml. bottle no. 09070BM33. Sampled on January 10, 2010. The pour is a light yellow color with upwardly mobile carbonation. The white head is thin and short-lived. The aroma is too overpowered by the pomegranate and raspberry add-ins to be able to distinguish anything remotely close to malts or hops. Thin mouthfeel, which is average for a light beer. But it also has this honey-like texture as well. The taste is so entrenched in pomegranate and raspberry that it ends up coming off more like a wine cooler than a beer. Oh well, I guess they'll try any combination once.
