This poured a reddish-pink body with a fizzy pale pink head that vanished almost instantaneously. The continuing bubbling created an eerie ooze-monster type of look at the top of the drink. Its odor was lime with some berry candy and a splash of mineral water. I couldn’t taste the strong alcohol content because the candy sweetness was so heavy. A dash of lime and some off herbal taste rounded it out. This would be a great drink the night preceding your scheduled colonoscopy (if only it wasn’t reddish); it will clear your system that quickly. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Slightly hazy bright red with no head. Tons of rich strawberry with some hints of beer. A little bit of flowers. This is very rich and fruity. A little bit of wood and light beers. Not too bad. Beersiveknown (5309) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 24, 2015

light pink, thin, fruity, more aritificial than other two, but then not a big fan of strawberries. fills a gap in market i suppose.
welp, why not try it. drank from the can after making popsicles. oh my sugar! A truly nauseating amount of sugar with some saltiness and tequila flavors. whew. then the boost kicks in and makes my head spin. the strawberry is second or third fiddle in this "beer" when it comes to the booze and -rita. Probably the worst of the fruit varients. AdamChandler (5206) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Bright pink and hazy
Smells good like strawberry and cream
Sweet. Like flat soda. This is really good. This is improved with a vodka addition stirred with ice.

Bright red like cherry kool-aid. Kool. Pours without head. Smells like the lime -a-rita... a mixture of beer, salt, and sugar. The taste is very similar to the lime-a-rita as well with only a faint hint of strawberry. In fact, in a blind taste test, you may have trouble discerning between the two.

Can: Poured a pinkish color with white head. Aroma is strawberry. Taste is a nice citrus strawberry that was a great breakfast beer camping. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
I still like the Cheladas. I could pretend to like the lime but I still have cans of this in the fridge from a birthday party 4 months ago. Better over ice but it’s a cooler. jandd1983 (4680) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Can. Sampled at gregwilsonstl’s tasting. It poured a hazy red color with no head. The aroma was of artificial lime, sugar and strawberry. The taste was similar to the aroma with more strawberry, sugar, lime and some alcohol. jsquire (4662) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Orangish-red color with a quick noisy pink head that just disappeared. No head and fruit punch colored is no way for a beer to start out. Nose of strawberry flavored Jell-o powder. Flavors of strawberry, raspberry, lime, popsicle, and Hawaiian punch. This is not beer in any sense. This is a strawberry flavored malt beverage. That being said, this doesn’t taste bad. It just isn’t beer.
