very wine coolerish - better than the swill in thjat regard but not something I have had or will have for a while. fills a wine cooler void, berry and citrus, not horrid.

Bottle courtesy of the Dr. Owl. Pours a hazy neon purple with minimal white head. Dissipates to nothing. Nose is like a bowl of mixed fruit. Watermelon mostly. Jolly rancher. I think I can small the sugar. Taste is the same but initially had a slight hotness from alcohol. That faded after a few sips. Overall this is the stuff that would get the job done for anyone without diabetes. ---Rated via intercellular device

8/17/13. 22oz bottle from Warehouse. Why do I do this to myself? Tickers gon’ tick... on a budget. Hilarious purplish pour with a small, loose, soapy pink head that fades in an instant. If you aren’t paying attention and turn your head, you’ll probably miss it. Tart, fruity aroma, only lightly sweet - actually a really good mix of fruitiness and tartness - reminds me of a hurricane or a nice tropical cocktail - I’m seriously really digging the aroma. A big plus is that it seems devoid of rocket fuel and garbage like other malt liquors, including other fruited St. Ides. In fact, based on look and aroma, I’d almost guess this was a Florida Weisse on par with JW’s stuff... this is not a joke due to recent events. The flavor sadly does not deliver... subdued tartness that was greatly exaggerated in the aroma with big sweet, fake fruitiness, corn, rocket fuel, apples, and dough. Blech. Rockin’ aroma, though.

Hell yeah! 1 year and 3 months since this bad boy was last rated. Pours a cloudy beet purple with no head. Aroma of hawaiian punch and booze. Taste is very sweet. Same as aroma with cotton candy added. Its like a drunken carnival in my mouth. Medium bodied with a sticky texture. Fizzy carbonation and entirely too long of a finish. Overall, meh. Reminds me of four loko

Bottle marked Oct1011-A071-2211. It pours maroon to purple with a beery head at least. The aroma is ridiculously fruity. It smells more like Hawaiian Punch then a beer. Watery body. The taste is nothing but Hi-C, Kool Aid, or Hawaiian Punch with a bitter coating. It might appeal to someone but not to me.

Pink-purple color. Fruity aroma, very juice-like. Tastes more like a cocktail than a malt liquor. Not bad.

Not really sure this is a beer, but whatever, smells like fruit punch, and tastes like some spiked fruit punch, really not all that bad.

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