3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Red-purple body with a thin pinkish head. Sweet cranberry juice with booze. Straightforward. Moderate body, with fizzy carbonation and lingering sweetness.

From the 25 fl. oz. can marked 14296-BJ87. Cranberry red pour. Cranberry aroma with a spring of lime. Light body. Cranberry juice sweetness. A slight buzz bite. I find it ironic that A/B In-Bev runs TV ads ridiculing people for drinking peach beer and then they brew this. It went down fast. My head felt it.

[ Can ][ 24oz ][ adnielsen ][ BIF ][ Cantillon Iris Baloon ][ 5.10.15 ]
>> Pours neon inky purple, weak soda foam, no retention. Nose is Kool-aid and melted raspberry popsicle. Blue raspberry artificial flavor, really sugary, children’s unhealthy fruit juice cocktail with corn syrup sweetener, hyper active children juice. Not sure if beer or just alco-pop. Has as much in common with Bud Light as Bud Light has in common with an eight year old’s birthday party.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Brrrrrr! Fuck this shit. It’s slightly cloud and purple and tastes like Sweet Tarts. Nothing about this resembles the flavor of an actual cranberry or even artificial cranberry flavor. It is just another boozy alcoholic soda pop. If you are a teenager and want to vomit red liquid all over your mom’s new sofa, give this a go. Everyone else, scroll past.

739ml can. Manages to be a bit less sweet than some of its counterparts, but does not taste at all like cranberry.

I think I am just missing the strawberry version now. They all suck but are still fun for some odd reason to me. Vodka cranberry with a sweet boozy tart kick. Not repulsive.

Mini can to stem. Dark red with bare white head. Cranberries with citrus, from Dow Chemical. Yeah. It was a dollar.
