this is just awful. the bottle says lager, but they lie. this "beer" is a sham. avoid at all costs.

I was looking for something new and flavorful at my local liquor store. I settled on this because I hadnt really heard of it before.

I cracked open the bottle and was assaulted by the aroma of raspberries and sweetness. Didnt think much of it. Ive had beers before that had strong smells that I very much enjoy. If I only knew...

The first sip. Oh boy, where to begin. At fist it tasted like a wine cooler. Then the alcohol flavor kicked in. And by kicked in I mean kicked me in the face. If malt liquor and Smirnoff ice had crazy drunken sex, this would be the bastard offspring it produced.

I assumed that it may just be the way i was drinking it. Maybe it just needed to let the smell take over. I poured the bottle into a goblet and holy crap. Its pop. its a damn pop labeled lager. It looks like pop, it pours like pop. There was very briefly a pinkish head. What was left in my glass was nothing more than soda water with 8% alcohol mixed in like the marketing team had no better ideas on how to sell this crap other than making it into train wine.

I ignored all the signs and my own conscience and took a long, slow drink. Ever have your mouth washed out with flavored soap? Did the fact that it was flavored make it any better? Didnt think so...

Just dont. Dont buy this. This is not a beer, it is liquid lies.

Looks like a Lindeminns product, clear and cherry red with a wisp of white head on top. Smells like cranberry juice or a box drink on steroids. Interesting that this is a beer. It tastes like candied raspberry syrup shots someone would put on a snow cone. Instead, said shot was pumped full of carbonation and busch light. It is syrupy and sticky with a medium body. I could see some HS kids liking this or maybe mixing it in with a sangria, but it is a little too much for me right now.

A - Poured out a clear, red color with a one-finger, pink head of bubbly foam. It short-lived head left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of raspberry juice. Not awful but not beer-like.

T - Tart raspberries lead the flavor profile, but there is also this strange burn -- the alcohol maybe?

M - It was crisp and sharp. A light bodied beer with a clean finish.

O - Not so good, but sadly it might be better than the blueberry one.

Dark red with a thin fizzy pink head with poor retention and next to no lacing. Smells like artificial raspberries which are way too sweet.

The taste is like sweet fake raspberries with an attempt to balance with a little bitterness. Not much to get excited about here.

Light to medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. This is just bad, and is not recommended.
