Another likka thanks to Dr Owl. Pour is a hazy light pink color. Aroma of artificial strawberry and sweetness. Taste is artificial tasting but also refreshing after drinking some OE. Give this to a typical girl and she couldnít tell the difference between it and Smirnoff ice (insert flavor). Overall, overly sweet...canít finish a whole glass but not offensive.

8/9/13. 22oz bottle from Warehouse. Only rating this because of Joe, fucken LOL (hilarious, you know?), and because it accidentally aligns with several RBSH3 tasks. Pours a hilarious somewhat cloudy pinkish color with a fairly decent off-white (maybe slightly pink) head. The head lasts for a few minutes but quickly dissipates to a small fluffy ring and basically does not lace one bit at all. Super sweet fruity aroma in general. It reminds me of pink Starburst in all honesty. Thereís a touch of rocket fuel and corn. Not bad, really. The flavor does not deliver, however. Very sweet with a ton of rocket fuel, gross corn, alcohol, booze, sweet strawberry (think those little green wrapped candies that your grandfather used to give you Ė the ones wrapped in the green and red foil or plastic or whatever and when you bite in they have that gross strawberry goo insideÖ then again I never really liked strawberries, so who knows if I am just a weirdo on that front). Anyway, imagine that gross candy with a shot of vodka and a can of creamed corn. Fizzy mouthfeel, definitely well carbonated, too much probably. Or maybe that fits this style? Not great. Never would have bought this if it were not for the challenge and me realizing these were even on the site. Gross.

(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy pink color with a fizzy white head. Smells like kiwi-strawberry Kool Aid. Flavor is cloyingly sweet with a ton of processed kiwi and strawberry flavors. Nothing much after that. Mild alcohol burn.

It looks like some demonic juice, smells like strawberry, and tastes like strawberry and kiwi, this shouldnít really be on a beer site, but whatever, itís a good wind-down drink

Pure sugar but the ladies would drink them by the gallon when we were younger. Lightweight fruity status.

I donít even think this is a beer is it? This one was very sweet and artificial. Itís more like drinking kiwi strawberry soda mixed with a little liquor.

This is the oddest tasting beverage Iíve ever had. Not disgusting, but by no means good. This is basically a malt liquor/wine cooler hybrid. It serves a purpose, just not one of mine personally.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Smells like spiked candy or fruit. Looks pink and cloudy like some pinkish witbiers Iíve head. Lots of sugary fru-fru-fruity flavors. Alky background. Best if drank straight from the bomber. A test for your tuff tummy. Immediate buzzy impact at end of bottle. Probably should not be rated as a beer.

The clerk nearly denied me this fine beverage, indicating that compared to what I normally purchase she just could not rightly sell this to me. I assured her I would not drink it all at one time (I figure this to be a drain pour, but I will continue) and that I had just place an order for some kegs, albeit not as fun as the last one (she really liked having to call the stock room for kegs of Dancing Man and Bitter Woman - while similar to my life, a different story for a later time). Not really sure if this one should be on the site, but since it is here I will try it. Light pink phlegm colored liquid with a fizzy white head. Sweet candy aromas with plenty of starburst strawberry scents. Some hints of cream and a touch of grain in the background. Sweetness takes over the mouth first from the strawberries flavoring, vanilla and kiwi, and then near the finish a slug of alcohol. The sweetness and alcohol combination do me in before I can even finish the first few ounces. I have found if you drink this fast enough you can get past the alcohol in the finish, but it still has a presence in the linger. A true drain pour. I should have not allowed the checkout lady to let me but this. The bad jelly beans have found a home in this malt liquor.
