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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Reviewed 3/5/2009 (bottle):

Pours a huge foamy white head, quickly diminishing, with a very clear pale yellow colored body. Very strong raspberry and cherry (pomegranate?) aromas, very enticing. Some malts too, but very sweet smelling. Mmmm, cherries. Very cherry taste, some bitter raspberry, and dryness on the end. Somewhat cloying sweetness. Very fruity tasting, but simple, very cherry, and some raspberry. Refreshing, but very sweet.
