0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottled. Very pale yellow, no head. Artificial marachino aroma followed up by plastic and saccharine. Then glue and DrPepper takes over for a while before it mercifully fades out in a swamp of raspberry syrup. God help me.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear glass bottle from Hi-Time. Aroma as advertised; a bit more pom than ras. Golden color with a white head that left rapidly while trying to lace in a spotty fashion. Thin body with creamy/fizzy carbonation. A bit corny; overlaid with fruit flavors - more rasp than pom. Finish is ok, primarily raspberry seed, and not so sweet as it tasted at first. No hint of hop bitter, but then this is from AB.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Kroger. Poured clear golden color with a large fizzy white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate sweet fruity aroma. Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with light sweet finish of short duration. This beer did meet my expectations after the other version.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
