2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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. Thereís 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 donít forget youíre drinking a supposed "apple margarita" - the most common of margarita variations, of course. Basically itís on the sort of sweeter side of the -Rita line with a big dose of apple flavoring. Itís not as good as the Cranberry (what is, really?), but not nearly as bad as the horrendous Mango.

Can shared at RBWG í15 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 "Ritaís", 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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can courtesy of (who I can only assume) Blipp @ Maxís. Pours a light golden body with no head or lacing. Aroma is apple juice - literally. Thatís it. Mouthfeel is carbonated juice. You know what, this isnít bad and to be honest I prefer these írita series "beers" over hundreds of malted-out "IPAs." It is what it is.

Can. Pours gold with a white head. Juicy apple notes, sugar, and lighter boozy notes, with very mild spicy notes. Really not that bad. Itís like a high boost apple cider with too much sugar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very smooth with just a bit of lime. Not as good as some of the more refined (and expensive) ciders on the market, but a great value and easy drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared in Hoboken - huge thanks to Blipp. Pours perfectly clear apple juice gold with a few bubbles for a head. The nose is chock full of sugary apple, artificial fruit candies, medicine nod cough syrup. Huge sweet flavor with some ripe, rotten apples, more berries, faint alcohol. Medium bodied with fine, fizzy carbonation, sugary finish, somewhat cloying, with more rotten apples, fruit cocktail, punch. So so. Not as bad as you might expect.
