2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small 236mL can at a local store for $1.49. Pours a hazy red colour with a small pink head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing. The aromas have some sweetness and sourness found in cranberry juices. Hints of candy. The taste is yeasty, over the sweetness, which sticks to the teeth. Smells pretty decent, but the taste is slightly lacking what the nose gives out. Prefer their other berry one and mango.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from an 8 oz can this beer poured a dark raspberry color with a medium sized soapy pink head that faded very quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was berry cool aid and alcohol. The flavor was tangy and tart berries and lots of sugar. Very long tart berry finish. Light to medium body. Fairly tasty but really more of a wine cooler in flavor.

Tall-boy can picked up at a local gas-station.a deep plum red. no head. smells like cranberry loaf or syrup, very sweet nose. hmm,, very cough syrup forward, lots of cranberry cocktail juice. very little that resembles beer. I added vodka to mine that helps tremendously.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark pink almost purple looking brew that bubbles up pink when poured but has no head at all. Looks like a glass of concentrated cranberry juice. Smells like cranberry juice. Taste is very cranberry but with a malt liquor background. Not really that tasty and not really something I would want to have again. Guess it is better than drinking plain old cranberry juice.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Per my math, this should fuck me up pretty good. Sweeter than cough syrup. Almost filled my Cincinnati Reds 2013 stein. There is no way I’m finishing this; I’d have to fast for a day cuz I, sure as there is no hell, am not going to excercise. Would not have loved the sure hangover headache from all of the sugar: drain pour. Bye bye $2.49 plus 6% sales tax. What a waste. I am ashamed. Between the sure hangover and the shame, I choose shame.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
25 oz can. (Walmart) Charlotte, NC.
Cloudy bright red colour with no head.
Cranberry, soda sweetness, lime and mild alcohol notes in the aroma. No beer whatsoever. The flavour is cranberry juice, sweetness, mild lime notes and quite strong alcohol. Blargh...

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another free can from Matt,
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a pink/slightly light red color with fizzy bubbliness. There wasn’t any head or lacing.
The smell had the cranberry but it came through in a weird somewhat off putting sour way. There was a degree of sweetness but even that had a weirdness to it as well.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. Sessionable - not really - that off putting soured cranberry takes too much hold on this.
Overall, once again, not really my cup of tea, thanks for the laughs Matt - you funny guy you.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Can: Lol. Saw this gem recently in a Chicago gas station, though I know this bitch has been retired for quite some time... (I think, anyway). Wonder how old this fucker is. Fuchsia, indigo-ish body, cloudy & capped with a lavender tinted head that fizzles out loudly like a Sprite. Aroma of pungently sweet cranberry juice, residual sugar, faint lime, & a margarita-like booziness. Super sweet flavor. Over the top. Take Ocean Spray cranberry juice, dump in another half brick of simple sugar, & drop in a few splashes of margarita mix or sweet & sour... Boom. This stuff is pretty gross. It’s by far the sweetest of the "Ritas", at least that I recall. I took a few more sips before I had to brush my teeth. I shoved the toothbrush up my ass afterwards as a reminder of what an idiot I am for wasting my time & money on this company once again.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
25 oz. can from the state liquor store in my office building. Pours a deep, somewhat cloudy ruby color with no head. Cranberry juice, some backing lime, and artificial sweetener. This one has more artificiality than Mango, Lime, or Razz. Light-bodied, with a sweet, somewhat tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. My 4th favorite of the 5 Ritas.
