Served from the can in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Finally found a can of this, having missed the first go around last year. My collection is complete now. This stuff pours a clear fuchsia topped by a short-lived veneer of tinted bubbles. The nose is eerily reminiscent of cran-grape juice, though the grapes err on the side of white rather than concord. The taste generally brings more of the same, but now the grapes have morphed into that distinctive lime twinge that this line has become infamous for in my eyes. Now, I'm no fan of the flavor of cranberries anyway, but this is an overly sweet version that just makes matters worse. The body is a straight medium, with a moderate carbonation and a sticky, syrupy feel. Overall, this is the worst of the series thus far, too sweet for its own good and just not all that appealing as a drink.

236ml can, another broken case 'find', at my local sad-as-shit liquor store conglomerate outlet.

This, well, 'beer', pours a clear, and generally kid's candy purple colour, with zero appreciable head, and even less (wait, what?) lingering lace anywhere near the glass as things slowly march southwards.

It smells of sugary cranapple punch bowl, and little else - berries, booze, and good times in bikinis! The taste is overly saccharine cran-this and cran-that, but nothing that will keep my teeth from dialing the nearest dental clinic, even at this ungodly hour. Ok, there is a beer under all of this alcohol and lab-approved 'cranberry' essence, but, right - it's just Bud Light, so look that the fuck up if you actually care.

The carbonation is more heady than anything else I've yet seen from this offering, the body a 'solid' medium weight, all fruit juice, all the bloody time. It finishes sweet, sweet, and maybe just a bit less than sweet, as the 16-proof alcohol eventually asserts its provenance.

Yep - add an already barely tangential beer brand name to an effort clearly aimed at non-beer-drinkers, and what have we - oh, right, a cocktail, one which actually has a lot more merit as a quaffable beverage (ya know, the fruit and the ABV), than the base watered-down beer. I'm still astounded at how far AB-InBev has to take things before BA treats them like they do craft ciders.

"Winter" seasonal huh? How about never. Beer two of the a-rita tasting. I like cranberries. Good in food and drinks. In this cesspool it is ruined. Yet probably the best in the series....

Rating this based on the style, a flavored malt beverage...

From can, poured over ice (as suggested) into a goblet

A-pours purplish-red, less than a finger head of white foam, dissipates quickly

S-Faint cranberry and lime, very faint

T-Cranberry juice cocktail, sugar/corn syrup, and some lime and booze, somewhat tart.

M-Carbonation is lighter than other flavored malt beverages in the same genre, slight effervescence, relatively thin

O-Less syrupy sweet than other beverages in this category. Reminded me less of a margarita and more like a cranberry/vodka drink w/ lime. Repeat purchase is highly unlikely despite the ease at which this beverage can be consumed.

A friend brought over a case of these 8 ounce cans for the last party with about half of them still left. Decided to try one last night on 1/2/14. Can(s) are chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a purplish-red in color with a very small head that goes away in like a minute. No lacing was seen. Slightly above average carbonation. The aroma is of faint cranberries with a hint of lime but no grains. The taste wasn't too great. Like a cheap cranberry juice cocktail with some grain alcohol added. No 'beer' taste at all. On the tart side as would be excepted. If I wanted a Margarita, I would make one! :)

A-red with light head that faded so fast I could not see what color it was
S-cranberry, very sweet, and fruity
T-cranberry taste with a mixed drink feel
M-light carbonation with a mixed drink feel
O-I think this is what they were trying to produce, and they did a nice job
