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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

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.
