Expected this to be horrible. Itís not! Strong aroma and flavor of berries and candy. Pretty purple. Double extra super duper sweet. Alcohol content is not detected (Read: no burn!). Goes down a little too smooth. Itís sweet and goopy and the ethanol will make you droopy and tomorrow youíll be poopy. But itís not too bad overall.

This beer looks, smells, and tastes like purple. If you drink too many, you will see The Grimace.

This stuff is hands down better than that Bud Light Lime-A-Rita garbage. Well, slightly better anyway. It is still not good. It pours such a dark purple as to almost look like a brown ale or something unless you hold it to the light. It even has a tiny bit of head. This really tastes pretty much exactly like grape soda and is just about as easy to drink. The alcohol is only apparent in a little burn on the back of the throat and it is easy enough to ignore if your goal is to drink this garbage quickly. Really the main thing stopping you from just chugging this stuff is it has way too much carbonation, I am surprised Miller put the Steel Reserve Label on this stuff. Now that AB is marketing high alcohol sugar to seemingly normal people, youíd figure this would be the perfect stuff to compete.

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours an off purple color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is of sweet berries and slight malt. Taste is predominated by sweet, berry/grape with a slight alcohol backbone. Malt and hops are hardly detectable. Itís closer to a wine cooler than a malt liquor IMHO. Palate is OK. Overall, an interesting beverage and relatively cheap for quick 4-pack try.

RONCOD (213) - Uledi, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a very dark purple with no head. It smells like grapes and other berries. Kind of sweet with a grape flavor. Itís hard to rate this as a beer, but it really is good. I will be getting more of this to have while sitting around the campfire.

The beverage smells like Sweet Tarts. It looks like a violet wine cooler. It tastes like fruit and pop, but not fruity pop. I donít think I would drink it again.

Purple can, fancy fucker ... Purple colour, pretty much soda foam ... Murphy & Son ... Medium sweetness, not a sugar bomb like most fruited lickas ... Decent for what it is .. . . All cats should eat cheese!
