A friend had this so I thought I would give it a try. Big mistake. The color was just a pale, clear yellow. The beer smelled of artificial strawberry flavors. The taste was so sweet that I instantly got a stomach ache. Plus, it didn't even taste like strawberry; more of a artificial, candy strawberry taste. The mouth feel was thin and fizzy. Overall, just a bad drink. I say drink because this should not be classified as a beer.

I am new to the world of beer drinking and coming from the mixed drink side this would not be a drink I would recommend as a starter beer. It reminds me way too much of the Smirnoff drinks with their fake fruit and overly sweet taste. Tastes like wine coolers and not really like beer.

I purchased this for my wife and after one sip she said it was too sweet, imagine that. So I tried to drink the rest but found the artificial strawberry flavor is so cloying that it made this impossible to finish. The sugary feel is thick and coats the mouth with a slime that gets you nearly choked. The Apple Ale delivered a much smoother, almost cider like feel and flavor but this is artificial and sickly sweet.

I bought a six-pack of this stuff only because my daughter wanted this stuff, so what's a dad to do? I am beginning to believe that Redd's is trying to be a gateway brew for women to get excited to beer. Unfortunately, this stuff is more like Seagrams or Bartle and James than a real beer.

From a pure beer perspective it wasn't altogether awful, but it certainly wasn't the best I've ever had. Appearance was so-so, the smell was okay, but the rest was sorta okay at best. Overall, I think I liked the Apple Ale better, but I'm certainly not a huge fan of these beers.
