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.

Ain’t no time like the right time in Southeastern Alaska to have a crappy beer to remind how crappy fishing was to me.
Sigh, here goes.
I did pour this into a pint glass and thought my eyebrows were just about blown off due to the carbonation pounding through the beer and practically in my face, and no, I did not shake this up I wasn’t born yesterday. There really wasn’t anything else to look at.
The smell had a glossed over sort of strawberry trying to come but ultimately failing.
The taste actually had the strawberry but it was really subpar as I didn’t really find it to be satisfying.
On the palate, I would like to say this beer watched that commercial about "going into beast mode" (nike, maybe, sorry, can’t remember). The carbonation moves into beast mode and basically rapes and strips my taste buds and tongue without letting me even to try to say "uncle.....you win, you win, please let me go.
Overall, what the flying fill in the blank was this. Cue Dierks Bentley: "what was I thinking?"

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.

8 oz. can. Pours bright strawberry pink with the same color bubbly head that vanishes. Aroma has watered down strawberries and booze. Taste is sugary sweet strawberry cool aid and booze. Palate is somewhat heavy with all the sweetness and finishes warm and dry.

welp, why not try it. drank from the can after making popsicles. oh my sugar! A truly nauseating amount of sugar with some saltiness and tequila flavors. whew. then the boost kicks in and makes my head spin. the strawberry is second or third fiddle in this "beer" when it comes to the booze and -rita. Probably the worst of the fruit varients.

24oz can poured into a Flute at 40°. Color deep pink with good carbonation but no head. It fizzes up and falls like a soda. Aroma of strawberry Kool-Aid, lime and salt. It has a lighter body with a sweet and tangy mouth feel. Flavor is sweet with a mix of lime and fake strawberry. In the after taste a bit of salt show with just a hint of alcohol. Overall I think it came out just the way they wanted it and if this is the kind of thing you’re looking for its good (my wife loves this stuff). Keep in mind this is not a beer, they call it a Bud Light, but its just like any malt based wine cooler, only this one is dressed up to taste a bit like a strawberry margarita.

Aroma of swedish fish, strawberry Margarita, and cranberry. Pours hazy neon pink with no head. Looks like Ruby Red Squirt. taste is as expected. Malt beverage strawberry Margarita. There is a time and place for this beer but not on this sight.
