1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Crystal clear light orange tinted golden body with a thin off-white head - really ’pretty’ :-( Aroma of - you guessed it, oranges and grapefruits with cardboard and yeast to top it off. Light-bodied; Fruity flavours roam through with some malt and nothing else - aside from fake sugars. Aftertaste strong and sweet - fruits and caster sugar. Overall, a pretty bad beer...not from the ’make you want to spit it out’ taste, but more from a - this really isn’t a beer taste. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle pulled from a larger pack, given to me by my brother in law on 25-May-2008.

I like this stuff !! This is the second Ultra i have had and find enjoyable. Much better than Wine Coolers for sure.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Let me start by saying I don’t like wine coolers and after trying the awful thing that Miller put out with lime in it I was a bit skeptical but I bought a six pack and headed home. Living in Florida has tainted me. Here where humidity is great when it is at 70% and the days can be 90 with the nights at 50 you learn that not all things work everywhere. As an example Florida is probably the only Southern state where un-sweet tea and Coke rule the beverage mart not Pepsi and sweet tea. That being said, this beer is perfect for drinking during the day or anytime for that matter. It does need to breathe when you crack the bottle but give it about 5 minutes and chug some back. The clean, crisp liquid will have you begging for more and certainly quench your thirst. I do have a sidebar though. I personally love sodas such as Citra and Squirt which are Grapefruit based and I love Grapefruit having been lucky enough to have trees in my neighborhood you can pick the fresh stuff from, so to wrap up if you like grapefruit, you are gonna love this beer if not, skip it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks (I think) to Ando for sharing not one but two bottles of Michelob Ultra Tuscan Orange Grapefruit. Is this really appropriate? After we’ve been close friends and beer colleagues for so many years?
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, yellow body with a small, white head.
Smell: It’s everso orangey!
Taste: Super pale maltiness with some washed out, sweet orange flavoring added that lasts until the finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Like a watered down Orange Crush, at best.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours a very light yellow almost like water with a small 1/16 inch head, with average lacing. Below average carbonation with a mild sweet smell of oranges and grapefruit. Tastes like carbonated Beechnut fruit gum with only a slight alcohol taste. This is awful and tastes like cleaning solution. It would make a better cleaning product than a malt beverage.

The aroma is great. That;s all the selzer water has going for it. It doesn’t even remotely resemble beer. Terrible

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
My least favorite of the three flavors of this beer. Too citrusy. Otherwise... same deal as the other two flavors.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle with a born on date of 30MAR07. Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished, transparent, fast rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. Nose was sweet, grapefruit, tart, and oranges. Ditto for the flavor and finishes dry. Mouthfeel was tingly and dry. Light in body. A non-eventful beer that is one diimensional, boring and definitely not one I’ll have again.
