0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Hazy pink highlighter juice pour with no head, but a soda-like effervescence. Strawberry Jolly Rancher, old dried up limes and gut rot booze in the aroma. Strawberries and Windex for the flavor, with a big punch of cheap grain alcohol toward the finish. Light, syrupy body with tons of booziness and a general feeling of nasty industrial solvents evaporating out of your mouth when it’s open. Nasty, I think this is my lowest rating ever. It literally tastes like I should be cleaning bug guts and bird crap off of my windshield with it.

This was inflected on at an esbls tasting. This is really not very good. It i too sweet and the alcohol does this no favors. I guess somebody must like this. Not me.

Worst idea of a drink ever. Smells/tastes awful. I had to work with it all summer during my internship and it was so sticky and smelly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Citrus alcohol aroma with a clear carbonated red appearance. Very sweet and fruity tasting that is mild and also fizzy and lively with a strong finish.

0.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
The aroma is pop with a weird margarita-like note. The appearance is pop with no sort of head or head retention. The taste is cheap strawberry concentrate and salt. This beverage is disgusting; I drank only about 5 ounces before I gave up.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pink with virtually no head. It smells and tastes like strawberries with some booze in the finish. Doesn’t taste bad but I wouldn’t call it beer.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This poured a reddish-pink body with a fizzy pale pink head that vanished almost instantaneously. The continuing bubbling created an eerie ooze-monster type of look at the top of the drink. Its odor was lime with some berry candy and a splash of mineral water. I couldn’t taste the strong alcohol content because the candy sweetness was so heavy. A dash of lime and some off herbal taste rounded it out. This would be a great drink the night preceding your scheduled colonoscopy (if only it wasn’t reddish); it will clear your system that quickly.
