1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from Kroger. Stubby. Pink pour with a fizzy head. Aroma is just crazy sweet candies. Taste is strawberry stuff, super sweet, a then it all fades away leaving some Bud finish that lingers forever.

Petite little 8 oz can poured into a snifter. 100 United States pennies at Safeway. Murky candy red with a sliver of off-white bubbles that wish to cease existence. Aromas of strawberry Jolly Ranchers and gummies, fruit punch. Tastes of strawberry candy, fruit syrup, fruit punch, some booze. Light body with a semi-dry finish.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
236 ml can free from promo team on College Street. Pours a cloudy watermelonish red with basically no head. Aroma is cherry/strawberry/watermelon candy, sugar and a little lime - not unpleasant, but nothing like beer. Taste is sickly sweet with candyish, artificial strawberry (and maybe its the colour but I can’t help but also feel like its reminiscent of watermelon) and sugar. Somehow both syrupy and thin. Ugh.

Can from Grocery Outlet. Looks bright red in the can. Smells sweet. Some strawberry margarita smell. It really does have a genuine margarita flavor. Pretty refreshing and easy sipping.

This is as far from beer as you can get and still be beer. Appearance is bright red with no head. Look like Kool-Aid! Aroma is strawberry candy and limes. The flavor is rather sweet and refreshing with a hint of sourness. More strawberries! Of course! Think strawberry soda or mixing a sprite with strawberry kool aid. I mean you gotta like that right? But I can’t rate it super high as a beer.

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.

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?"

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.
