No. Simply put no.
Although I can appreciate an experimental beer here and there, there is an overpowering fruit juicy sweetness that just saturates the palate into oblivion. Couldn't get through a whole can.
It was suggested to me add some vodka or champagne to it... no thanks. If it cant stand alone I'm not tainting my other alchols with in.

Open a can of RAD and never again will you be forced to wonder 'what would it taste like if I mixed a can of Keystone with a heaping tablespoon of TANG". I can only assume that somewhere right now at Inbev development HQ, there's a group of scientists reverse engineering a can of RAD in hopes of using it to create Bud Light Orange-A-Rita.

No head, no lace. Dirty orange color.

Very sour, spoiled cream aroma. A bit earthy. IMHO, not good.

Sweet and sour flavor. I detect a bit of barbecue. There's a bit of pineapple that I find appealing, but the aftertaste is like a tart orange rind. I find this to be unusual and difficult to drink. I find the body to be the only redeeming quality.

16 oz can poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance
Muddy, pulpy, blood orange color with a short head that dissipates quickly.

Nose
Lemon juice, orange juice, grapefruit juicy, pineapple juice, and maybe mango.

Taste
Tart blend of lemon, orange, apple, grapefruit, and pineapple juices. There are light notes of wheat and spent grains underneath.

Mouthfeel
Light, watery, and tart.

Overall
It's been a really long time since I've had a drain-pour.

Can from World of Beer. Pours cloudy grapefruit juice colored with no head at all. Uuuuugly. The aroma tells me this is a wheat beer, hefeweizen notes, hay, funky banana esters, grapefruits. Flavor is super tart grapefruit juice, thin, maybe a bit of dirty wheat flavor, bitter grapefruit lingering. Thin without much body, medium plus carb. This is really awful. I can't imagine a situation where I would want to drink this.
