Sampled tonight on 3/3/14. New for this year and comes in a 8-ounce can. Can chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured into a flute glass.

Pours a red wine in pour with really no head or lacing to speak of. The aroma is of Raspberries of course with some sweeteners. The taste is the same with good raspberry flavor coming through with a hint of ol' 'Bud Lime' at the end. I liked it better than their Cran-Ber-Rita I tried a couple of months ago. Overall, it wasn't bad.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.

Amazingly not awful. Could go really well with a desert such as a cheesecake. Not too sure how to rate this one though since it is not really a 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.

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.

Serving style : 8 oz can, poured into 8 oz glass. 8.0% ABV. WHOA!

Appearance (2) : Grape Juice cocktail, opaque, with no head. Like a raspberry grape soda.

Smell (3) : Smells like raspberry soda with a faint pinch of alcohol.

Taste (4) : Pretty good actually. Lots of raspberry flavor. It's nothing like a beer, so if you're expecting beer (or Bud Light), you'll be in for a rude awakening. For a mixed drink in a can it's better than decent. It tastes like a rich, fruity raspberry soda with an alcohol kick. Just a hint - a hint of sour grain muskiness on the backside but not enough to even think about.

Mouthfeel (3) : don't even know if this drink deserves a mouthfeel category. It's carbonated and a little cotton-candy like with a residual syrup on the finish. A little bit of that grain alcohol surfaces as well.

Overall (3.23) : I like this "beer". It's actually a margarita in a can, and I think AB needed to market it under a brand name that would sell, so they slapped "Bud Light" on the can and called it good. It's nothing at all like a Bud Light, and pretty much nothing at all like a beer. For what it is, it tastes great - but if Beer Advocate has these things on here, they might as well start adding Smirnoff and Mike's to the list of reviewed products, as this is NOT a beer. I don't quite know how to rate this. I enjoy it, so I guess I'll rate it how I want.
