looks pretty good, a bit cloudy, tannish yellow, decent white head with some staying power, so-so lace.
Smell is pretty good, quite raspberry with a bit of wheat beer character.
Taste does not follow the expectations of the smell. It's a syrupy mess, cloying and not full of fresh raspberry flavors like you might expect from the smell.
Body is OK, kind of thick like a wheat beer. The cloyingly sweet aftertaste detracts from the overall experience though.
Overall I think budweiser needs to try a real raspberry beer like New Glarus or DFH to see what raspberry beers can actually taste like before dumping a bunch of sugar and cheap raspberry syrup into a cheap wheat beer and then spending billions on marketing. Better beer sells itself due to the self-evident quality of the product. I'm damn glad that this was a single bottle given to me just to review, because had I bought a sixer of this I would have finished about half of one, cooked with the rest of it, and given the other five away to someone with no real concept of what good beer is.

Color naranja, con cabeza que desaparece rapidamente sin dejar encaje, carbonatacion media, aroma completamente dominado por la frambuesa.
Sabor dulce, levemente citrico sin amargor pero con cierto grado de acides y dominado por el sabor frutal a frambuesa pero con un gusto artificial.
cuerpo ligero, facil de tomar y deja una sensacion acida en toda la boca.

Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a light bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of fake raspberry syrup is quite awful with quite a bit of residual sugars. This is closer to a cooler than beer. Taste is a mix between some grainy wheat malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar and way too much of the awful raspberry syrup. Body is light with good carbonation. I wasn’t expecting some kind of masterpiece but what a bunch of crap this beer was.
