Poured from a 25 oz. can. Has a purple color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is full of raspberry goodness. Taste is raspberries, sweet, just a touch of tartness, alcohol well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while I wouldn't want a steady diet of it, this wasn't all that bad.

I try to rate beers to style. This is really a malt beverage or alcopop not beer as such. It's not bad for what it is and makes a nice change from beer. It pours a purple color with a minimal white head from a ten ounce can. The smell is sweet and has some raspberry notes. The flavor is on the sweet side but definitely tastes like raspberry. It's decent if this is what you are looking for but it doesn't really resemble beer.

Nothing can prepare you for the color of Barney the Dinosaur in a glass. Barely noticeable fleeting pink head dwindles quicker than a fart in the wind. Aroma reminds me of the flavor of a Warhead sour candy blue raspberry, with default berry notes and some alcoholic medicinal qualities. Even over ice I don't see how it would help this Raz-ber-Rita...wow. The madness has to stop, but I'm sure somebody out there enjoys this type of abuse, different strokes for different folks. Harsh ass fusel alcohol finish amongst the mild salted berry concentrated sugar notes. Headache inducing almost instantly, puts a smile on my face to know that I will never walk down the path of canned Bud Light Lime concoction's lemmings have gone...which has one ultimate outcome a direct path toward a black out drinking session or worse diabetes induced coma (which also leads to a black out in a roundabout way). Mouthfeel makes your acid reflux come out of hibernation and burn your ears for consuming something this putrid, gag reflex inducing carbonated man made liquids combine to form this shit. Overall, I would never guide anybody toward this path of enlightenment, or eternal black out for that matter.

236ml can, a single procured at my favourite down-market liquor vendor - thanks, as always. 6% ABV, or so sez the label in front of me.

This beer pours a clear, dark magenta hue, with one skinny finger of fizzy, and little else, pale pink head, which wisps away in no time flat, leaving nothing resembling lace anywhere near the glass.

It smells of edgy, somewhat tangy raspberry juice, and maybe a hint of metallic artificial sweetener. The taste is weirdly grainy, um, malt (more malt candy than brewing malt, though), tart 'n sweet raspberry flavouring (more Jell-O than the real summertime deal), and a soft hint of cold, steely alcohol.

The bubbles are pretty testy at first, but get bored quickly and slink off to wherever they might go, the body an adequate medium weight, as buoyed by adjunct sugars as it is, and so-so smooth, the sassy raspberry essence kind of biting the hand that feeds it. It finishes not as sweet as I was expecting, a diet raspberry soda character still predominating.

I suppose once they lowered the ABV to normal-ish adult beverage levels, the fruity malt liquor associations kind of drop off. Anyways, still not really a beer, the raspberry component completely obliterating any Bud Light [sic] graininess. More evidence that 'Bud Light' is more brand name than actual beer.

Anheuser-Busch "Bud Light Raz-Ber-Rita"
24 oz. can
$2.99 @ Stop N Shop Liquors, Camden, NJ

Not unlike the Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita, this is not really a beer, but a malternative version of a margarita cocktail. This version, however, is done with raspberry. It's bright and sweet, and very sweetly raspberry-like in flavor - almost candyish, and too much so. Given the choice I'd stick with the Lime-A-Rita.

Poured from an 8 oz can, poured into a Pint glass
Aroma- Doesn't smell like beer at all but a Nehi soft drink
Appearance- Looks like a grape soda with no head at all.
Taste- The best of the Bud Light Rita line. Has a real good flavor that isn't to sweet. It doesn't taste like beer so get that out of your head. (LOL)
Palate- This is a soft drink like drink with a bit of a dry finish due to the alcohol content.
Overall- The best of the Rita series, I am not sure that is saying much but this is the one of the series that I wouldn't turn down at a party if someone offered it to me.

Bud Light Lime Raz-Ber-Rita brewed by Anheuser-Busch.This brew pours out a dark purple color with no head. You smell the raspberry and that is about it. As far as the taste it is raspberry. Not much for a brew but it goes down nice and smooth. This brew is a good for the summer time. Overall I'm giving this brew a 3 out of 5. There is nothing bad about this brew. I will buy this again to switch it up from the mainstream brews out there on the market.

Some would not considered this to be beer, however is a smooth brew to drink

This one reviewed from notes. Too many off balanced flavors. Raspberry taste is not natural, balance is off and overall, kind of what I expected but had to try
