2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
8 oz. can for $1 from Kroger. Pours a clear, bright, cartoonish pink color with no head. This one is the most artificial, and therefore worst, of the 5 Ritas. Strawberry candy, some lime, and not much else. Light-bodied, with a sweet, juicy mouthfeel. This is the one I’d be least likely to have again.

8 ounce can shared with drsilverworm. Pours a really bright pink with no head. The aroma is like Hi-C fruit punch. I get some tropicana orange juice as well. Sugary mouthfeel. High carbonation.

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.

Canned, from the Lise, red fruit punch color, tastes like it looks, albeit a little thin and watery, fruity finish

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.

Red pour. No head. Aroma of strawberries. Really sweet but 8% alcohol. Overall not too bad but doesn’t really resemble a beer.

I want to rate this lower because of how ridiculous this "beer" is, but truth is it tastes alright. Tingling carbonation with huge strawberry flavor.

Pink with virtually no head. It smells and tastes like strawberries with some booze in the finish. Doesn’t taste bad but I wouldn’t call it beer.
