8oz can from a memorial day cookout. Low haze neon fruit punch red, fizzing out light pink foam. No retention or lace. Nose is fresher strawberry candies, some moderate margarita mix lime, thick Hawaiian punch sugary children’s unhealthy drink. Taste follows with moderate margarita mix spiked Hawaiian punch. Not gross, but so far from beer as an institution that it probably should be reconsidered as an Alcopop. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
8oz can, shared with jstax. Good god, this is the pinkest thing I have ever seen. It’s so unnaturally pink. Can reads "... and artificial colors." Not surprised at all. It’s so bright, it makes me nervous to drink this. Looks like it could illuminate a dark room, slightly. Geez, the smell... It smells like strawberry bubblegum. Tastes sugary sweet. We’re calling this beer, really? This is a frankenstein bastardization of a beer. This offends me about as much as Lime-A-Rita did. Not awful, but what the hell is this? Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Fuck this shit. I dunno... I’ve had a few of these ’Rita things now... Sometimes, like with the Apple and Mango versions, I’m like wow, this is surprisingly OK... And other times, like with this and the Lime thing, I’m like "what the hell am I drinking???" Not sure if it’s a variance of my mood or the beers, but either way, the whole series makes me uncomfortable, and I wouldn’t call any of them "beers". Go to hell AB-InBev. I feel dirty drinking this stuff. Even for science.. arminjewell (9584) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pour out of can, clear pink pour with dissipating pink head, aroma is salt, strawberry juice, margarita mix, and lemon. Taste is the same, lemon, margarita, orange, strawberry juice, finishing sickly sweet. Yeah, it is what it is. onceblind (9418) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pinkish red with a fizzy carbonation like soda. Smells like Budweisers version of strawberry artificial flavoring. Tastes of the same with light artificial strawberry flavoring with a hint if light lime and a touch of margarita mixer. Honestly, the non-strawberry version is way better. This is like Bud Light’s flavored wine cooler. blipp (9146) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Pounded straight from the 24 oz can like an adult. Sweet sugar, citrus, and strawberry candy. More sugar, close to cloying, with a finishing sweetness that lingers on the lips. Sweet candy drunk drink.

Small 8 ounce can, I think it cost me fifty cents. Pours a bright ungodly pink red color, I wonder if this is dying my mouth red. Anyway, the aroma is big sweet artificial berries and sugar. Sugary sweet, sweet tarts, light alcohol. Drinkable, just not much. czar (8996) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
pours hazy yellow-grey, pink hue, with a disappearing white cap, no lacing. artificial if not rotten strawberries, lime and other citrus presence, cloying sweetness - plain refined cane sugar, tiny grassy notes. surprisingly light carbonation, medium body, sweet and off fruity finish. blah. b3shine (8795) - Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2013
24 oz can to pint (split with the wife and served over 4 iced cubes). Pours an artificial strawberry with pink head that dissipates quickly. Smells of strawberry and triple sec. Tastes like it smells, only way too sweet, with a syrupy mouthfeel. This may be tolerable if you pureed it with ice, but as it stands, it’s undrinkable. drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2013
3/18/13. 16oz can. This beauty pours a magnificent ruby red like the bottom ray of the most gorgeous sunset on the beach in Hawaii. The pillowy pink head lingers like luxurious bubble bath on the tip of a lady’s finger drawing you in. The fresh aroma is vine ripened strawberries cut with fresh squeezed lime and a dash of ruffled lime leaves mixed with fresh Jamaican cane sugar and a dash of fine Florida orange zest. The flavor bursts across the tongue with tart strawberries dipped in fine lime-infused raw sugar delicately toasted under a torch. Just kidding. Red #40, artificial strawberry and lime, too sweet, boozy, overcarbonated. Eh. Erzengel (8619) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
Artificial pink in the glass, sweet artificial strawberry nose. The beer starts artificial sweet (I bet there is artificial sweetener in it), nothing natural. Even no beer there. The Lime from the Bud Light is a bit in the background, the alcohol is present.
This is not a beer - and even the few % of beer in this can aren’t tastable. And even for an AlcoPop way too arificial! --> 1/12/1/1
