Bierkrug (2109) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, - FEB 18, 2012
330 ml bottle in Dakar, Senegal. Pours a clear red-amber color with an off white head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Sweet and artificial fruity flavor. Palate is tart and sweet. Kind of need for a mixed drink but a terrible beer.

Bottled: 400ml. # Generic candy flavoured chick stuff : I’m a fan of regular desperados, this is too sweet for my palate

smells of BO which is slightly off putting, looks just like some kind of industrial waste tastes the same with a alcoholic chemical aftertaste, worse than the normal desperados. avoid unless out to get smashed and its cheap.

Alors celle-là, en plus par rapport à sa grande sœur classique, elle a goût bien dégueulasse. Vraiment très mauvais.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottled 27/12/13. A pinky red coloured beer with a bright white head. A far away noticed sweet and skunky energy drink aroma. Sweet artificial and sickly in the mouth with more of that energy drink nonsense. Saccharine. Thin but not thin enough. Why is this even made?

in beer, you have whales, and - lets call the other opposite - ants . just like ants the animal, ants the doesnt matter. down upon . wether you like it, doesnt matter. you SHOULD score it badly .( think of low alcohol, sweetened beers, ... ) just like whales are suposed to be rater 4 + . i will NOT join this way of rating . i always rate according to how much i enjoy it , the whole package . looks ( also label) , smell, mouthfeel, taste , aftertaste . thats how i’ve always done it, and always WILL do it . so yeah, lets open our minds and lets not expect a beer of something that doesnt even call itself a beer . its a mix . itsd a drink . do you enjoy it ? appart from IS it a beer or not ? here’s what i thought : i drank it from the bottle at ’t rotske ( metalbar in antwerp, the owner is a fan of this ) . colour is as seen on the picture. dindt pour it out . smell is sweet carbonation is like a soda . very arteficial . taste reminds me of bacardi breezer wattermelon . the first alcoholic beverage i ever enjoyed . every few months, i even sneak in the stores , disguised, and buy a bottle . yes, i do have to admit i like this . i do NOT like how arteficial this tastes like, but what it does taste like, is not bad at all . watermelon comes to mind, on a bit of a malty base . maybe somewhat sweetened . no complexity, nothing a BEER should be like . but as a drink, this is damn fine . think of this rating ( or me) what you will, but i’ll set a spine here , and rate this 3,5 . as much as i rate mpy average beer . why so high ? simply enough cause i can enjoy this as much as the average beer . ( stuff that taste the same as 20000 other beers ) . so yeah ... 9 percent on style ? i think thats a bit influenced by rathing this as an ’ ant’ .

Kita (860) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 30, 2013
Canned, 0.50l. Clear amber orange color with large dissipating frothy pinkish head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, tequila, guarana and other artificial crap. Taste is artificial sweet, mild fruity, alcoholic and moderate unpleasant bitter. Light body, dry texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. That’s an insult for beer lovers...

50 cl. can @ home. BBF 08/2014. Procured from Carrefour. Last can at the store, score! First sighting of one of the variations. Beer aromatized with tequila, cachaça and guarana, sounds fascinating terrible. The can looks lovely, energy drink styled can. This stuff is not cheap, looking at the ABV, the buzz / price ratio doesn’t seem to be on par with the stronger Gordon’s which are in a comparable price-range. This one is more of an alcopop, those usually don’t have the highest ABV & are quite pricey as well. There is that, now it is time to taste this puppy. Poured ice-cold into my Eylenbosch glass, it’s a amber pomegranate pink, creamy, collapsing soapy head, very light shade of pink. Nose is basically huge artificial sweeteners, not very off-putting, totally artificial strawberry additives, lime, guarana, totally unidentifiable red fruits, flavourings & additives, gummy bears, faint tequila. Taste is lots of artificial sweeteners, including aspartame, guarana, lime, artificial cheap tequila, quinine, light jam, unidentifiable red fruit additives including strawberry, sorbet, more artificial additives in the back, touch sweeteners chemical sourness, slight burn. Light, almost watery, hint higher carb. Absolutely nothing about this identifies this like a beer to me, def. not nasty like the regular version. You can drink this like an energy drink. If you want to get buzzed & not taste any alcohol or alcohol-like drink this might be the way to go for you. 100 % artificial but not off-putting, I have had quite a few less pleasing “pale lagers’. I wouldn’t actually call this off-putting even, I had no issue finishing this.

Aroma of stale chemical fruit candy. Flavour of stale chemical fruit candy. Bit of a bothersome alcohol burn.

Calisky (234) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - SEP 26, 2013
Belle couleur rouge, grosse mousse blanche. Parfum de fruits confits... artificiels. Arome cerise-agrume-aspartam. Gout sucré aspartam-artificiel. Pas degueulasse, mais pour ceux qui aiment pas la bière en soirée.
