Bright red like cherry kool-aid. Kool. Pours without head. Smells like the lime -a-rita... a mixture of beer, salt, and sugar. The taste is very similar to the lime-a-rita as well with only a faint hint of strawberry. In fact, in a blind taste test, you may have trouble discerning between the two.

Smells good like strawberry and cream
Sweet. Like flat soda. This is really good. This is improved with a vodka addition stirred with ice.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orangish-red color with a quick noisy pink head that just disappeared. No head and fruit punch colored is no way for a beer to start out. Nose of strawberry flavored Jell-o powder. Flavors of strawberry, raspberry, lime, popsicle, and Hawaiian punch. This is not beer in any sense. This is a strawberry flavored malt beverage. That being said, this doesn’t taste bad. It just isn’t beer.

(can - 8 oz) Pinkish hue to the pour with a fizzy white head. Lime and strawberry in the aroma. Flavor is much better than the regular Lime-a-Rita. The strawberry flavor really cuts down on the tart and fake lime. Too sweet to have more than one, even with the small portion size.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
24oz can from mini market in Seattle. Crazy peachy red, very artificial looking drink. Looks, smells and tastes like gatorade or koolaid. Strawberry artificial taste I guess, but mostly some bad mixed alcoholic drink from powdered ’juice’ and bad liquor. Strange tartness, weird alc flavors. Super strange, not bad in the context of fruity beers across europe, at least it has a lot of flavor and 8% to balance. But tastes like a kid’s juice drink.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a bright red and looks much like strawberry soda.
The aroma is most defiantly sweet with lots of lime and artificial strawberry. It’s not an unpleasant smell by a long shot.
The flavor is really actually fairly pleasant, I mean it tastes like a strawberry lime-aide soda... but like a pretty good version of that sort of soda. The alcohol is noticeable, but nowhere near the 8% range. Mild salty and beer like flavors are present but fairly muted and come out a little more as it warms.
One of my earliest memories as a kid was walking with my mom to the grocery store with a freshly skinned knee and a can of strawberry soda. The strawberry soda cheered me up. I was no older than 4 when this happened... close to, if not my daughters age.
It’s hard to shake something as hard wired as finding a rarely indulged in strawberry soda immeasurably pleasurable for close to 30 years. So this certainly does it for me as a beverage.
