8 fl oz can. Pours a hazy red colour with a very thin white head. Aroma is strawberry syrup. Flavour is strawberry syrup, sugar and lime. Light body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Way to sweet for my liking.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
8 oz can. Aroma of lime, strawberry and fruit. Taste of strawbeery, lime and has a tart finish. More of a soda pop than a beer. Not for me

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From the 25 fl. oz. can marked 14079-BK10. Red pour. Is this a beer or a Tropicana Twister? Quick eruption of white fizzy head. Gone in a flash. Strawberries and lime juice inhabit the aroma. No malt or hop character to speak of. The body is light and refreshing. OK, I’ll give it that. It is supposed to be that way. As for the taste...it is like drinking a wine cooler or an Ocean Spray fruit drink. I will say that the 8% ABV is definitely well-masked and will creep up on you with a vengeance. Otherwise I am prone to ask - "Why does this beer even exist?"

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.
