Can. Sampled at gregwilsonstl’s tasting. It poured a pink color with no head. The aroma was of cranberries and sugar. The taste was similar to the aroma with more cranberries, sugar and some fruit punch.

JohnnyJ (5193) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Can. Bright fizzy red pour. Sweet, artificially flavored cranberry and raspberry, fizzy, and some alcohol. Good beer - no, but still enjoyable for some reason.

How: Horizontal tasting at home with the infamous Franky Boy. Cans (236 ml).

All 5 were super artificial but much easier to drink than I thought it would be. Artificial fruity alcoholic cola.

Cran-Brrr-Rita 8% Very sweet nose and a bit acrid flavor even though it’s super artificial. 4-3-4-2-9 = 2.2

Lime-A-Rita 6% Lemonade-like color. Intense artificial lime aroma, like slush puppies. A bit puckering. 4-3-4-2-8 = 2.1

Mang-O-Rita 6% Glowing peaches color. Gummy peaches alcoholic cola. Probably the sweetness of the five. 5-3-5-2-9 = 2.4

Raz-Ber-Rita 6% It’s really similar to the raspberry Jell-O that I had in terms of artificial raspberry flavors. 5-3-5-2-8 = 2.3

Straw-Ber-Rita 6% Super artificial, like the others. The softest of the five and rather easy drinking. Gummy strawberries. 5-3-5-2-9 = 2.4

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Can at Dad’s for the half marathon tasting. Pours a beautiful purple ruby with a thin white head around the edges. Smells of sweet candy and soda, fruit. Medium bodied, super sweet, lots of candied cranberry. Terrible I guess, but I still liked it. Couldn’t drink much of it, but it’s tasty enough. Like all of these, it’s a soda and not a beer, but for what it is, quite ok.

Can. Purple drink, more or less. Obviously just a bit too sweet to be truly palatable, but really not that bad for a high boost soda.

Can courtesy of Blipp. Pours bright pink. No head or lacing. Smells and tastes like soda - Shirley temple. Too sweet but not terrible.
