0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
In my quest to try as many beers, ciders, malts, and sakes as possible, I had to drink one of these. It’s even worse than what I expected, but that high alcohol content is nice.
First did not enjoy May 25th, 2013.

It seems like this is a party beverage. This would be an insult to call it a "beer," although it is a "malt beverage." This tastes like an overly-sweet strawberry kool-aid soda, with a hint of lime and a very slight malt taste. This does not remind me of a margarita at all. The alcohol is masked pretty much completely, and it is sweet (way too much so), so I DO see its purpose in the "beer market." That is, college parties and cheap tailgating.

8 FL. OZ. can poured into a beer mug. The initial aroma is incredibly sweet and lacks any beer presence. It looks like a watery strawberry margarita. Taste, actually the best of the Bud Light Ritas, that may not be saying to much. it was drinkable but there was no hint of any beer flavor to me.

From the depths of the box from Art comes this critter. Watermelon pink with a cherry charms lollipop nose this is sure to displeasure any beer geek....certainly Sloth. I feel like a Euro-trash popped collar cretin pouring this over ice. A splash of strawberry and sour patch kid gummy worm up front. In short, blended kids candy with alcohol. I bet this gets guys laid in college.

Can. Pours florescent pink/ red with minimal white head. Aroma is very berry, strawberry, super sweet, sugary, smells like a strawberry slushy. Taste is very very sweet strawberry, a weird mustiness in the back, lime. Really terrible.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Part of their mixed pack, found on a trip in Maine. Pours a red colour with pink hue. The head is pink and fizzes away quickly leaving no lace. Fake candy strawberry smell with hints of cherries. Again, artificial strawberry notes with the lime finish. Mild sourness, and a little syrupy. A little too sweet, but decent in the sun.

8 ounce can shared with drsilverworm. Pours a really bright pink with no head. The aroma is like Hi-C fruit punch. I get some tropicana orange juice as well. Sugary mouthfeel. High carbonation.

8oz can, shared with jstax. Good god, this is the pinkest thing I have ever seen. It’s so unnaturally pink. Can reads "... and artificial colors." Not surprised at all. It’s so bright, it makes me nervous to drink this. Looks like it could illuminate a dark room, slightly. Geez, the smell... It smells like strawberry bubblegum. Tastes sugary sweet. We’re calling this beer, really? This is a frankenstein bastardization of a beer. This offends me about as much as Lime-A-Rita did. Not awful, but what the hell is this? Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Fuck this shit. I dunno... I’ve had a few of these ’Rita things now... Sometimes, like with the Apple and Mango versions, I’m like wow, this is surprisingly OK... And other times, like with this and the Lime thing, I’m like "what the hell am I drinking???" Not sure if it’s a variance of my mood or the beers, but either way, the whole series makes me uncomfortable, and I wouldn’t call any of them "beers". Go to hell AB-InBev. I feel dirty drinking this stuff. Even for science..

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From 25 ounce can. Odd neon pink color. Aroma is fruit punch, with hints of artificial strawberry, salt, and lime. Taste is similar to aroma, with lots of fruit punch. Like the salt component, but has an odd artificial finish. Very strange to try to rate this as a beer. Not a horrible malt beverage, but a pretty bad beer.
