I picked up a bottle of this and shared with my wife, enjoyed chilled a goblet.

the color is pale golden with thin band of white beads and moderately fast moving carbonation. The smell is very sweet and peachy with a light tropical candy odor which I suppose is dragonfruit-esque but the aroma is more fuzzy navel smelling in general. Light feel, ultra light fizzy and seltzer-like.

The flavor is similar to the scent with some tangy fruitiness and sweet essence with mild tropical juice like cooler quality with mild spritzer-like taste in comparision to other fruit lagers I guess. Overall not terrible especially if you are rating it for what it is and not a simple light lager. I would probably not buy this but it certainly fits the label and was not dissapointing when paired with sushi and wasabi. I would say poor if you are looking for a true beer, but not bad if you want a malternative.

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.

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.

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.

Saw this at a little event and saw the word Dragon and decided to give it a try. Very light color, drank it straight from the bottle as there were no glasses around. If I had my eyes closed I would not guess that I was drinking a beer. It tased like juice and was not all that bad. If you're into fruity drinks, give this a shot. It won't fill you up and it was quite refreshing on a hot summer afternoon.

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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into 23oz Mets pilsner glass.

Appearance: Clear straw color with a large white head that dissipates pretty quickly and leaves no lace.

Smell: Smells entirely of peaches and dragon fruit.

Taste: Begins with a dragon fruit flavor, finishing with peaches and hints of dragon fruit, and some hints of malt.

Mouthfeel: Thin body with balanced carbonation and very refreshing.

Drinkability: Very drinkable and very refreshing, so in that regard it has its place. However, this isn't something I would get very much, but it isn't intolerable. There isn't very much about this that says "beer".

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.

Poured into a pint glass.

It's goldish yellow with a foamy white head that is not long for this earth. This beer is almost supernaturally clear.

It smells peachy. No hops, not sure what I should be looking for with regard to dragonfruit.

It tastes of peaches and is pretty dry when it comes to sweetness. Much like a soda.

The body and carbonation are also bith like a soda.

Overall, no thanks. But I did like the Lime Cactus Ultra one the best.
