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 itís 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% Itís 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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at Dadís 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. Couldnít drink much of it, but itís tasty enough. Like all of these, itís a soda and not a beer, but for what it is, quite ok.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
[ 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, childrenís 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 oldís birthday party.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Brrrrrr! Fuck this shit. Itís 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 momís new sofa, give this a go. Everyone else, scroll past.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
739ml can. Manages to be a bit less sweet than some of its counterparts, but does not taste at all like cranberry.
