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.

Well hey. This beer. Thanks, Mark, for this. So generous. Pours an unhealthy raspberry lemonade color with a Fanta-esque head. Aroma is red Fanta. Flavor is... red Fanta. This is Fanta. I don’t want a Fanta. It doesn’t even taste bad, but iIt’s offensive to my soul.

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?"

24oz can - pours kool-aid red with no head. Nose is artificial strawberry just like the strawberry "sirop" by Tesseire from France. A second sniff reveals the margarita base. the third makes me think of the salt that usually accompanies margaritas. flavor is dominated by the margarita qualities and the strawberry takes a backseat. Sweet and tart with saltiness (perhaps only through the association to the real margarita). Easy to drink if you like Bud Light Lime, margaritas and artificial strawberry flavoring. I do!

From a can. Pours neon clear red. Light body and low carbonation. Tastes like koolaid and not like beer. Sugary aroma.

Wow what is this? Pour is pink with soda fizz. Aroma has wine cooler sweetness, strawberry soda, and a hit of bud light lime. Flavor follows along with mostly strawberry soda and incredible sweetness.
