330ml bottle from Tesco - Starting off, it is red. Look at the picture, didn’t expect anything more. Close your eyes and the aroma is like a piece of Big Red gum, spicy cinnamon and artificial fruitiness. The taste is almost medicinal, again like a Big Red but not so burning, and a lot sweeter too. As far as beer goes, this is awful. Rate it as a soft drink... and it’s awful. Not for me.

330ml bottle found in a caribbean shop at Shepheard’s Bush Market, London. Fruity and very sweet beginning. Only artificial lemonade there, nothing more. Very sweet, sticky, artificial... Rather a lemonade than a beer...

Atlanta, Ga - Total Wine - Perimeter. Pours a fruit punch pinkish red, quickly fading bubbly white head. Aroma has a nutty and essence, not unenjoyable. Flavor is somewhat candy-like with a nutty essence, some light cinnamon-like spice. Mouthfeel is artificial and thin. Now I know what sorrel is. Interesting to say the least.

1/4/14. 12oz bottle from Publix. Just couldn’t resist awful ticks today, I guess. I don’t even know what sorrel is. A quick Google and I guess it’s 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, it’s 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.

BillWyce (740) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2013
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 isn’t unpleasant, but seems artificial. Takes on a cinnamony note as it warms.

tommann (2848) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
330ml bottle. We’ll, 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. I’ve 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.
