12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale yellow with some white head. Aroma of a little raspberry. Taste is about the same with a lot of corn and grain. Light bodied and thin textured. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, another crap fruit beer. I’m not diggin this one. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2012
12 oz bottle pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of fruit. Tasted like a gummi bear with a beer aftertaste.

Original review: 6/2/08. 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. Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bought this one in a make your own 6 pack at Fry’s grocery store. Had tha aromaof pomegranate and raspberry but that wis about it. Gold body with fizzzy head. Not much flavor and watery. Stale fruit beer made for people like us. Hey look someone out there needs another rating lets make this jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours pale yellow with no head. Aroma of artificial fruit flavoring and cereal grains. Watery with flavors of fake fruit, cereal grains and artificial sweetener. Seltzer water finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with small frothy head. Berry aroma and rasberry. Tangy flavor and watery. Not much going on with this one. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Thanks to BeerFMAndy for killing me with this one and offering a quasi-refreshing liquid for in between beers at a recent tasting. "Palate cleanser between IH Kryptonite, Lawsons Double Sunshine, HF Double Citra and Abner before Pegs RARE DOS." Thanks for typing that sentence for me, Michael. Also, a bottom 100 tick. Score. Served in a tulip.
Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose brings mild pomegranate plus a load of fake raspberry. Flavor is the same plus same grain. Artificial sweetener and a bit of tannin. Not bad as a soda, pretty bad as a beer, though not undrinkable.
I had this quote in my notes, which I must have said: "Doesn’t age (aka 2 hours) on my deck very well." Quite true. It certainly got worse as the open bottle sat around in the sun for awhile, though rest assured, I reviewed this under the optimal conditions of it being at its ideal serving temperature, i.e. just above freezing.

A female friend was drinking this, no surprise there. Since it was new to me, I had to have a sip. Very plain, and very fruity. You need not know any more. bluejacket74 (1992) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2011
12 ounce bottle, picked up a single of this at Liquor Barn. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with about a half inch white head. Pretty much no head retention at all, but there’s a decent bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and fruity, it smells like candied pomegranates and raspberries. There aren’t any "beer-like" aromas, but it does have a nice fruity smell. The brew tastes like slightly watered down pomegranates and raspberries. Mouthfeel/body is light and watery, it has moderate carbonation, it’s smooth and it’s easy enough to drink. It’s an OK fruity drink, but it seems more like a malt beverage than a beer. As much as I hate to say it, I liked it a lot more than I thought I was going to. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Drank 3/19/11. 12 oz bottle into lager glass. Pours a pale clear yellow with a medium white head; retains itself pretty well, surprisingly; even leaves some lace. Artificial aroma of raspberries and pomegranates, no surprise. Taste is sweet and grainy; little bitterness. Very bland. As I said with Shock Top Raspberry Wheat, another Michelob product, it tastes more like berry-flavored seltzer water than beer. Highly carbonated, dry, and light-bodied. Although there are no off-notes, this is probably the boringest fruit beer I’ve ever had--no surprise.
