Trying another beer out of the Michelob Ultra pack. This one is Pomegranate Raspberry. I'm not expecting much out of these beers but sheer curiosity has led me to giving them a try. The dragonfruit-peach was almost non-beer like, so we'll see how this one goes...

This beer pours a bright yellow color, and slightly more than finger of foam forms and lasts for almost 2 minutes. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. The aroma is quite sweet, almost fruit-punch like with perhaps a bit of soapiness underneath. The mouthfeel is very fizzy. This beer does have some light grain flavors, more so than the dragonfruit-peach, but the generic sweet berry flavors indeed takes up the entire flavor profile. The sweetness lingers onto the aftertaste, with a hint of futile dryness barely making itself noticeable. The brew concludes with no alcoholic warmth.

I like this one better than the dragonfruit-peach, but it really isn't too close to beer either. These fruit-flavored Michelob Ultras really are for non-beer drinkers.

Appearance: Pale straw color with reddish tint.

Smell: Hint of raspberry puree.

Taste: Wow. It actually tastes like a diet raspberry soda.

Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy.

Overall: I have nothing to say about this beverage. If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all.

Pours a pale yellow color with a one-finger head into my glass. Seems carbonated.

Aroma is detectable even from arm's length. Lots of pomegranate and raspberry. Seems more like a wine cooler at first.

Taste is smooth and full of pomegranate and raspberry upfront. Very faint though. Adjuncts show through, mainly corn. Like Michelob Ultra with fruit flavoring.

Mouthfeel has a Trix feel to it. When a beer reminds you of a breakfast cereal, it's probably best to avoid it. It's not sickly sweet though.

Not a great marriage of fruit flavors and beer, especially since neither are actually well-represented here. It's not horrible but it's not impressive either.

This was free at a recent marathon runner's expo. Normally, the best tasting beer is free beer, but that does not really apply to this beer. Poured a pale, translucent gold with a smallish wispy head. Head quickly disappears. Pomegranate raspberry highlights the nose and taste of this brew, both vying for your attention. Really light, ultra light on taste. Mostly just overcarbonation and alcohol is all you notice. Would drink again if free, but doubtful that I'd ever purposely purchase this one.

...so after a great day at a brewery and hanging out with friends, the pool looked great! but before the cooling process could begin I spyed a lady friend drinking one of these and grabbed one. 'oh yeah' Pours a light straw colour with some light lacing from the small head..'oh yeah'..Has some nice fruity aroma's that don't smell too artificial..'oh yeah'.. Taste is what you would expect from a fruit flavoured mass marketed drink, but as with the aroma, doesn't taste to fake- just muddled.. Overall, better than i thought it would be but still lacks anything a real beer drinker would want! ...'oh yeah'

Holy chick beer. I'm really trying to take the purpose of this beer into consideration when reviewing it. It's fruity crap for people who don't like beer and therefore they should be drinking a Mike's Hard Lemonade or rum and Coke. Nevertheless, it's a pale pee color with a large white head that disappears very quickly. It looks like apple juice with a periodic bubble escaping to the surface. Smells like fruit. I drink a POM pomegranate juice from time to time and I eat raspberries and I suppose those odors are present. Along with a faint, faint stink of lreally light beer trying to poke through. It doesn't taste bad it just doesn't taste anything like beer. In fact, I pick up on just about no beer qualities whatsoever. Nonexistant malt, hops, or anything you'd find in real beer. It's water-thin and very lightly carbonated. Overall it's closer to a fruit juice than a beer. It's easy to drink, though. This is children's beer if there ever was such a thing. There's two more types of Ultra in the variety 12 pack that I got...

Had a chance to try this a few days ago. Thankfully, the store let me buy a single bottle.

It neither looks, smells, nor has a mouthfeel similar to beer ... other than perhaps other similar "ultra"/"low carb" beers. Almost more like flavored club soda with beer-like tastes.

The fruit flavoring wasn't overpowering, which, frankly, was surprising. I'm not sure what they were going for here. If I wanted a fruit flavored alcoholic drink with carbonation, this wouldn't be my choice, and if I specifically want a beer with fruit characteristics, this wouldn't be my choice either.

Left in my fridge after a party. Thanks so much, Stephanie. :(

Light gold clear body with no head whatsoever. No lacing. But, pretty average for the style nonetheless.

Huge Pomegranate and Raspberry aroma. That's it. It smells like kool-aid. It's not a bad smell, so I gave it a two. Just doesn't smell anything like beer.

If you really try, you get a bit of malt in the back of your throat on the aftertaste, but other than that, all fruit. Not bad tasting, just doesn't taste like beer.

Very, very thin mouthfeel and bitingly high carbonation. Definitely not a good combination.

I can see where some people (who don't like the taste of beer) would drink this. But I really can't believe it's on this site. Not good at all unless you're looking for alcoholic fruit punch.

Pours a extremely pale golden color. A fluffy two finger tall head perches itself for longer than expected ,and then leaves lots of lacing(probably from the sugary additives). This nose is sweet,not in a good way. Very artificial and reminiscent of sugary pixi-stix,good when your an adolescent,not good when they combine it with beer. The flavors are much the same. Quite offensive in my opinion,reminds me of watered down Clearly Canadian. Very thin and watery,though the carbonation is somewhat acceptable. The finish is of sticky artificial sweetener and candy corn. This is horrible...no wonder my girlfriend loves it.

The beer pours a clear, very light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is raspberries and bready malt, without much else. The flavor is pomegranate, raspberries, corn, bread and water. Not only is the beer very watery feeling, it tastes like a glass of water with a splash of fruit juice added to it. Medium carbonation and a thin, watery mouthfeel.

I actually had hopes for this one b/c I like pomegranate water and was thinking it would taste like this but w/ alcohol. Dead wrong. It's not even a chick beer as the girl I bought it for drank twice as me (two sips to my one) before dumping it down the sink. It is a straw gold bodied beer that is thin and watery and designed to go down nice and easy with sweet razz/pom taste. Instead, it is a little sour and sharp and tastes like a diet cherry 7Up that was left on the counter for awhile. This is really not palatable at all.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with significant amounts of active visible carbonation and some faint notes of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall fizzy sudsy bright white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of artificial raspberry and pomegranate, like you would expect from a candy... very light hints of grainy malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of slightly sweet grainy malts with some moderate flavors of artificial raspberry and hints of pomegranate. Overall this beer is not quite as sweet as I was expecting and there is a strange metallic/artificial flavor that persists after you finish. Light hints of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Very light bodied with moderate to significant amounts of carbonation. Thin/watery.

O: Not overly offensive but not something that I would ever pick up again - the flavors and aromas are a little too artificial for me. Best served ice cold because the flavors did not improve as this beer warmed up during the drinking.

My wife asked me in the grocery store: "Doesn't this look like it might be good?" I said no, but we bought it anyway. She doesn't ask for that much, so what the hell?

Pours a pee yellow color with a big noisy, fizzy, soda-like white head that disappears in a flash leaving nothing behind.
Smells like sweet artificial fruit flavoring and tastes much the same. Sugary pomegranate and rasberry flavor is about all there is here. A very weak malt presence hanging around somewhere in the back. This stuff doesn't qualify as beer in my opinion. It's more like a "flavored malt beverage" a la Zima. Starts off way overcarbonated and ends flat and watery.

It's fairly refreshing and not undrinkable, but it ain't beer. Suffice it to say that I wouldn't recommend this to any beer lover.

12 oz. bottle. Basically, I think this beer was made for 12 year old girls. Not that I'm mad about that... A friend's girl brought this to our last tasting. I had to try it. Poured a transparent yellow, fizzy white head. It basically tasted like fruity gas-water. Aroma and flavor was raspberry (all artificial). Very, very light on the palate, fizzy. I guess if I were in the desert and had to chose between this and camel piss...I'd chose this. Maybe

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, light gold in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: berry and fruit

Taste: raspberries, blackberries, and a touch of grass. Can’t really taste the pomegranate.

Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, sweet with a slight bitter spike

Overall: A decent beer that is barely beer enough to not be a wine cooler. Not a fruit drink, but not the first thing I would go for. Of this series, it is probably my least favorite as well.

My wife was drinking one of these in the backyard last night, so I figured I would give it a try. Pretty nice golden color, with a decent enough white head. This was the best feature of this beer (in fact, I think it was appropriate for the style, allowing me to score it above 3.0 if I so choose). Not much else to say here; lots of fake raspberry flavor, very sugary, almost like a sickly sweet soda. Nothing good going on here.

Picked this one up cause I'm a sucker for novelty. Out of the bottle this beer was a pale gold color with a fizzy white head that was short lived. It did, however, retain a pure white soap-skim ring that laced tiny bubbles moderately. The aroma was sweet and all raspberry extract. The flavors were at first sweet, the fruit extracts hit me as decent but then it all went south. Stale grain and stale corn. No pomegranate flavor can be pulled out of the raspberry syrup that is stomping all over it. Hops and malt are quashed too. Mouthfeel is very fizzy and a little rough, the body light. To its only credit it is crisp but the aftertaste is unpleasant and metallic so even that's hard to enjoy. I always hate to fail a beer but this one deserves it.

Thanks Bobby, your generosity never ceases to amaze me...

A: The pour is about as light as yellow can get with a white head that dies nearly instantaneously.

S: Sweet, sugary, fake raspberries come through immediately. The slightly tart pomegranate comes next, but that is sweetened up as well. Definitely fruity...

T: The fruit flavor is nearly completely masked by the overwhelming carbonation. Tonic water with a splash of raspberry flavoring.

M: The body is light, very light, and the carbonation is excessive, to say the least.

D: This isn't offensive, at least, but it would be cheaper to just buy a bottle of flavored soda or tonic water.

Apart from the "lime in the Corona" this is my first of the fruit beers. Should have been a little wary when all the girls went crazy for it. Poured about a half-inch head, faded in 15 seconds. Some lacing that lasted a bit. Very light. Could definitely smell the pom. rasberry fruits. Didn't taste like a beer at all. Rather, it resembled a good fruit drink gone a little sour. Was extremely easy to drink, but don't plan on going with what's easy in the future.

Michelob Ultra in general isn't the worst beer in the world, but it's definitely not the best. The flavor in this version of the beer is much stronger then say, the orange taste in Blue Moon. It tastes really good, but it's definitely a girly drink. Not as sweet as a sugary Malt Liquor drink, but it's still a fairly powerful Raspberry taste. I would recommend this if you're drinking with a female friend or something, as it is fairly easy to get down.

Over all, it tastes good, but it's a girly flavored drink... not a real manly beer, even for snotty connoisseurs.
