1/4/14. 12oz bottle from Publix. Just couldnít resist awful ticks today, I guess. I donít even know what sorrel is. A quick Google and I guess itís some sort of plant similar to hibiscus? In the Caribbean at least? Oh well, here goes. Hilarious fake red color with an even funnier frothy pink head that goes away instantly. Gross. Whoa. This smells exactly like bubblegum, but a little spicier, itís calling to mind those little individually wrapped white dusted bubblegum chunks you could get for a penny or a nickel as a kid, Dubble Bubble and the like. The flavor is strikingly similar as well, but more sweet and tea-like. Gross and 1.2? Make this my 2nd drainpour of the night. Nasty.

from notes: Poured clear bright red, with no head to speak of. COmes in a clear bottle, so no surprises appearance-wise. Light, sweet floral aroma. Body is light, but slightly fizzy and syrupy. Has a floral, sweet flavor that isnít unpleasant, but seems artificial. Takes on a cinnamony note as it warms.

330ml bottle. Weíll, it pours red. Bright red. Hurts my eyes. Thin head. Aroma is cherry and rolling tobacco. Taste is mostly artificial cherry with mellow cinnamon.

Bottle - this thing is fucking red. Not a beer color. It tastes like a dentists cinnamon-masked awfulness to get you to drink it. NEVER EVER again. Iíve literally had one sip and I will pour this out.

Now, I wouldnt call this beer, however... Cinamon and fruit aroma. Looks like a fruit soda and tastes like raspberry/cinamon soda.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Looks like strawberry soda. Smells like licorice and cinnamon. Tastes like cinnamon candy and medicine. Just as disappointed as I expected to be.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pleasant drink with some medicinal flavour. Drinkable stuff. I like shandy.

Bottle - well As a fan of fruit beers and lambics I was willing to give this one a shot and sadly it disappointed. It pours a clear cherry Kool-aid red and smells like licorice red hits (cinnamon). The taste is a sweet with the slight burn of the sorrel. Very artificial. Iíd say this is more closely aligned with the a fore mentioned Kool-aid then lager.

Itís just so red! Pours artificial red from bottle without much head. The nose is of cinnamon hard candy. Thereís no element of this that tastes like beer except beer is listed as the second ingredient right after water. The taste is pure sugar. Itís like naughty, naughty kool aid. No finish to speak of. Surely this is one 50 worst beers in the world.
