7/24/14. I guess Valdosta is ahead of the -Rita curve. The wife graciously brought home a small single can of this bad boy. First to rate! This luscious brew pours the exact color of apple juice except with a short lived off-white head that fades to nothing almost instantly. The aroma does in fact smell like apple juice and red apples, but with a fake aspect that makes me think of green Jolly Ranchers. There’s also a definite booziness in the aroma that distracts a bit. The flavor hits strong with red apple and apple juice but transitions mid-palate to a more familiar sweet, lightly tart, limey, Lime-a-Rita aspect so you don’t forget you’re drinking a supposed "apple margarita" - the most common of margarita variations, of course. Basically it’s on the sort of sweeter side of the -Rita line with a big dose of apple flavoring. It’s not as good as the Cranberry (what is, really?), but not nearly as bad as the horrendous Mango.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of apple juice and jolly rancher apple flavor. Crystal clear amber, headless. Jollly rancher flavor, tangy and sweet, somewhat noticeable fusel alcohol. Medium body, easy carbonation, warm. Rougth edges but enjoyable, not really beer, but no one expects it to be.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Little red bull size can offered at a tasting. Huge thanks to Eugene for helping me with this whale. Rating from notes. Pours an apple juice appearance with no head. Huge green apple aroma. Hard candy aroma and flavor. So sweet. So So So sweet. I’m going to continue to say that these are not beers, but there are technicalities with everything these days. Tastes like an oversweetened apple iced tea, and not a great one, with intense cinnamon apple. First and last of this one.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Little can courtesy of my brother Matt; consumed over ice (cubed) from a red Solo cup. While playing cornhole. In Indiana. ’Murica. Aroma: Green Jolly Rancher candy green apple hooch. Appearance: Caramel color (added) with a fizzy white head that’s gone in a blink. Flavor: Pretty much matches the nose; fairly tart green apple candy up front with a boozy, backyard hooch thing going on. Sweet sweet sweet and keeps on "giving". Palate: Light body, slick texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: This is pretty low brow, but I finished my can. Still not worth a revisit.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can shared at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15.
Light golden with a moderate off white cap.
Nose is sweet apple pie, apple pulp, sugar.
Taste comprises sweet notes, sugar, apple pie - much the same as the nose.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close.
Too sweet, carries the booze off well, if you like sweet boost juice this could be right up your alley!

From the 8 fl.oz. can. Pale yellow. headless pour. Aroma of apple, sweetness, and booze. Light body. The taste also brings out the apple characters like a cider. Except for the booze underbelly this would probably fall under the cider category.

This is my favorite Lime-A-Rita next to the original. It to me has a sort of an apple wine taste. It is sweet but to me it balances the weird beer tastes perfectly with the sweetness. Recommended!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Like all the other "Rita’s", this beverage is simple. The aroma and flavor are apple, sweet, little alcohol considering the ABV, the color is gold like cider. The finish is sweet. Ok overall. Drinkable, especially in summer.
