this got left at my house a few weeks back and curiousity got the best of me.

pours out a crystal clear very pale gold colour with out much head and therefore extremely little lace left. aroma is mostly raspberries and maybe a little kiwi or something...i suppose the pomegranate. seltzer water with a bit of fruit flavoring and a distinct metallic twang in the taste department. very little malt character and even less hopping. mouthfeel is crisp with a carbonated bite that tingles the tongue. overall body is very lean and lacking. about what i expected. drinkability is therefore low...very low. although if someone handed me one of these ice cold on a hot scorching afternoon after a day of doing concrete work, i could probably pound it down in three gulps and let out a massive belch with an "oh yeah!"

otherwise avoid.

definitely marketed towards women and maybe the female fitness crowd.

Oh, how can I describe this beer. I tried all three of Michelob's fruit beers in a row, and how I wish I could forget the experience.

This was a scary, yellow-colored beer that resembled nothing so much as a carbonated whiz. There was less than a half finger head, and it was loud, fast, and fizzy, like a soda pop.

Aroma was of fragrant raspberries, almost floral, but there was no malt character at all (thank God).

Taste was like flat raspberry seltzer water. Nothing else. Wasn't at all like a beer.

Mouthfeel was fizzy and thin.

Drinkability... no. Just... no. Avoid it.

Sigh . . . why did I do this. Hmm . . . So that doesn't count as a proper review. Well, it looks like yellow water with raspberry flavoring added what is necessary.

look: 1.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Basic yellow-gold lager color, with an ephemeral fizzy head. Gather ye foam-buds while ye may, because this head ain't stickin' around for long.

S - Fruity Pebbles, Fruit Loops, and Flintstones chewable vitamins.

T - Fruity Pebbles halved with grape-nuts. The fruitiness is mediated by a husky graininess that actually helps keep this one together. The graininess keeps it on the beer side, and off of the malternative or winecooler side (the darkside IMO).

M - Thin and fizzy. Quenching, but nothing special.

D - Not as bad as I anticipated, actually. This is probably my favorite of the Michelob Ultra fruity beer series. This, along with Lime Cactus and Tuscan Orange or Apricot or whatever is much better than the regular Michelob Ultra, which is tasteless IMO.

A: Pours out to a flat and lowly carbonated presentation. Medium yellow color with a short lived foam head, and a total lack of lacing.

S: Strong indications of berries and mild malts. Slightly sweet, and mildly artificial. Still, it's got my interest.

T: Suprisingly well balanced for a light lager which dresses as a fruit beer; mild malt, traces of dry hops, a strong yet not cloying flavor of berries with a natural and mild sweetness. Quite nice.

M: Bubbly. Zesty. Sharp. Very crisp. Light bodied and goes down easy.

D: Average, but considering it came from AB, it's a step in the right direction. They're exploring new territory, which I commend, but why do this beer in a "light" format? Go full flavor and you'll have peoples attention. Worth trying. I could take it or leave it.

Appearance- It is a straw gold almost brass color with a weak white head and lace.

Smell- It has sort of a kool-aid like smell to it. The aroma is very sweet.

Taste- It has an overly fruity infused with a cheap pils taste.

Mouthfeel- Thin and watery.

Drinkability- It is a great beer for people who want to say they drink beer but don't or a training wheel beer.

Neighbor offered at a block party.

Look - From the bottle, clear golden with a small fizzy cap on top.

Smell - Weakly grainy with the namesake fruits in moderate amounts.

Taste - Grains turn up, rice adjunct becomes more apparent. Fruits stay moderate.

Feel - Watery light body with a spritzy carbonation. Swallows clean and finishes rapidly.

Overall - Was exactly what I was expecting. Michelob Ultra in itself is useless. More expensive than high life, with less flavor and alcohol. This variation is better than the base beer due to the added fruit aspects. Can't complain.

A- Light pale yellow with small white head that disappears into the overwhelming effervescent bubbles.

S- Faint hint of artificial raspberry. Fruity.

T- Fizzy tonic water with a hint of artificial raspberry and pomegranate.

M- Fizzy. Overly fizzy.

D- Like a soda but less sweet. Tonic water with artificial flavoring and waaaay too much carbonation. Not offensive, but almost.

What the what?!?! Who thought this up?!?!?! Disgusting! I am not against fruit flavors in my beer, but this does not work on any level. The flavors clash like a train derailing on my taste buds.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
