3/5  rDev +41.5%

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, light gold in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: peach, passionfruit, and sugar

Taste: peach, passionfruit, some malt. This almost tastes like a tropical lifesaver.

Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, very sweet

Overall: A decent fruity beverage that drinks more on the cocktail side than beer. If I wanted a low calorie fruity treat, I would pick this up. If I wanted something that tasted like beer--maybe not. I like other beers/styles better but certainly a beer to drink when I am in the mood for the style.

It tastes like juice. None of the Michelob Ultra's actually taste like beer, but some taste like a nice beverage. Not this one. It smells fruity, like peaches I guess, but the taste/aftertaste is not good. To be totally honest, it has a faint taste of vomit. It's only faint, but it is still there...like a peachy vomit. Which would be OK if this what puke tasted like, but this is a beer, and I will be avoiding it in the future.

Pale fizzy yellow color with a fizzy white head. I thought it was pretty funny that the neck label says "CONTAINS ALCOHOL", I guess when you make drinks look this girly and non beer you have to make things clear. Reminds me of McDonald's CAUTION Hot Coffee!!! Smell is pure candy peach artificial extract of course, and what is Dragon Fruit? I have no baseline to compare what my senses should detect. Flavor is horrible no redeeming qualities gag reflux inducing, light seltzer water with a horrible rancid peach offness. There's isn't even much sweetness here it's all pretty much artificial Peach flavor running throughout. Mouthfeel is fizzy carbonated water texture, no real syrupy textures thinking the texture of carbonated flavored water. Drinkability is a drain pour, I can't justify continuing something that makes my stomach want to turn inside out.

Pours a very light and clear straw color with a Tony head that completely disappears within seconds.

Smells like a peach snow cone. Very artificial, no traces of malt or any beer-like smell at all. This would be great for a kids fruit drink, but not a beer.

Tastes like sparkling peach flavored water. Very thin and fruity, nothing else going on really. Has a tangy aftertaste that leaves a bad linger on the back end. Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall, this is not a beer. This is something that my wife would drink if she couldnt have fruity liquor drinks. Definitely a chick beer.

Poured from a clear 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is overwhemingly of peaches, maybe a hint of dragon fruit, very sweet. Taste is rather mild, some peaches, not much to it at all. Feels light in the mouth and is very drinkable. Overall as far as light beers go, this one is better than most.

From the 12 fl. oz. twist-off with a marking of 1167-2910629A. Sampled on March 9, 2013.

Remember to rate it on style not on reputation.

It poured pale yellow with a quick excited burst of fizzy carbonation leading to a head that fizzles quickly. So place it at average.

The aroma is full of peach esters like announced but there is a vague bready and clean hop note lingering behind it all. So a little above average.

The body is light with a slight acidity probably due to the peach zing. So a tad above average.

The taste is peached up to the max at first but there is an odd sort of lingering finish which could be due to the hops or the fruit. I will put it at average.

There are a bunch of these Michelob Ultra fruit beers out there and this one is slightly more appealing than the others I have had. But it is still a hot summer day kind of beer.

out of the lost notebook, reviewed from notes.

again with these super light pours but at least this one had a touch of head to it and did not look soo light that i thought it was water. a touch of color bouncing around the sides. the aroma was the worst of them all. just soo over the top an fake it was not even funny. i just did not understand how they could out this out like that. just peach candy overload. flavor followed with just massive fake peach flavor an such a light base it was hardly noticeable. super light and just non existent finish.

i really dont know why i waste my time drinking these. just compeltely not worth it.

Appearance: Pours a pale translucent yellow. The inch of head that poured quickly dissipates, leaving no lacing.

Aroma: Peaches, peaches, peaches! That's about it. You can smell a hint of corn faintly in the background, but you really have to be looking for it.

Taste: Wow. This is probably one of the worst tasting beers I've ever had, and I've had some pretty awful one. Peach seltzer water. That's what this is.

Feel/Drink: Light mouthfeel. I can't even finish this, the taste is just way too off.

Pour brought a one finger head to life, but it died quickly. With just a small ring of bubbles around the side of the glass, the lace is unimpressive and has no cling. The color is a 3 on the SRM beer color chart. Smells like peaches, corn and malt. I detect flavors of peach, malt, and corn, but not much them, quite weak in the flavor department. Feels like water in my mouth, just nothing really there to get my tongue around. I am just not very impressed by the flavor. I guess I can say I had one, but won't think about having another.

light yellow no head.
Smells of peach, peach, and more peach.
Tastes is mostly peach, there is a slight lemon flavor as weel and it's just a bit tart. Its light and overcarbonated with a slightly dry finish. I would never buy this, a friend brought it over.

Like the hippies of yore, I will try anything once.

The fizziness of both the pour and the head reminded me of soda pop. Color was a light, pale yellow with NE-quality clarity. I have micturated darker than this! Nose was peachy all right, but I do not know what the dragon fruit was supposed to add to the equation. Mouthfeel was thin and watery and the flavor reminded me of peach ice cream. Finish was semi-sweet, kind of refreshing on a humid day. This was an interesting curiosity for me and not much more. It was better than some of the bland nothings that I have tried in this line and the fact that it was refreshing was a bonus.

I loves me some dragon fruit. Thanks Bobby. Ticked in the street in front of my house.

A: The pour is, you won't guess, just like the other Michelob Ultra fruit flavors: pale yellow with a short lived white head.

S: Definitely some dragon fruit aroma, but the peach really overshadows everything else. Sweet and sugary, sort of like those Peach-Os candies.

T: Unfortunately, the fizz also victimizes this beer. A little more robust flavor than the raspberry-pomegranate could muster, though. The dragon fruit flavor is nice, and the peach candy flavor is somewhat minimized by the carbonation.

M: Again, highly carbonated to the point where it's sort of a joke, and the body is incredibly light.

D: Again, you might as well just buy a bottle of fruit flavored tonic water. This isn't really much different. Plus, you might be able to get a Diet variety and save yourself a few calories.
