Imagine the most artificial strawberry flavor you can, now add the flavor of throwing up tequila. That, is strawberita. At 25 ounces and 8% ABV, this is a Four Loko that doesn't make you immediately commit felonies. Would you like a diverse flavor profile? Would you like something complex or subtle? Do you want to enjoy a beverage? This is not the drink for you. Do you want to get significantly toasty with two cans for $7.00 at your local grocery store? Do you want to drink bottom shelf wine while maintaining some semblance of manhood? Do you enjoy vomit or sugar hangover headaches? This, my friend, is the drink for you. Enjoy at your own risk, but only if you're broke, under 25, a woman, or have a death wish. Cheers.

Split a can, served frozen into a margarita glass - review from notes

Like all variations of this """beer""" - I think it's just too damn sweet. The thing is like 90% HFCS. This one also has a ton of citric acid to help the sugar rot away your teeth (and your dignity)

Just not worth it

Pours a shock of red Kool-aid, no head formation. Strong whiff of intensely fake strawberry liquor, essentially liquid Jello shots in a glass. Taste follows that road precisely. Feel is thick, sugary, and raw, like a dessert before its cooked.

Straw-Ber-Rita has no foam nor lacing, but it does have lots of bubbles and a semi-clear red color. The aroma is of strawberry drink, and the flavor is of that, too, with some pale malt & tartness. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Straw-Ber-Rita finishes drying, in that high-fructose corn syrup fashion.

(25 oz can, code 19173; purchased cold... poured into a 28 oz mug)

L: cloudy, fruit-punch colored liquid; foam on pour, quickly collapses to nothing, persistent activity of bubbles rising (observance mostly copied from my recent review of the Lime-a-Rita)

S: strawberry Big League Chew - no other way to describe it... intense, but little booze presence... ok, well, yes the 'margarita' (lime) element does slowly emerge

T: whoa, not 'strawberry' really - fake, artificial, sweets-injected strawberry; gummy strawberry... now I gotta know what's in artificial strawberry - 25% fruit essence, 75% sugar?... this doesn't have the pool liner highlight that the reg. Lime' has - is it more pool float?... the flavorings in this bury the 'malt beverage' base more than their standard Lime-a-Rita

F: it's not all-out syrupy, but there's definitely a concentrate or two slick-sliding though its core... for 8%, the booze is buried rather well... not laborious to swill; fantastically mellow in its alcohol presence, but nonetheless a tad too weighty (also mostly, entirely copied from my Lime-a-Rita review - finding out these things are one-note)

O: thought the taste of this would wash out that of the 'flagship' Lime-a-Rita I just had moments ago, and boy was I right... this is seriously carbonated (malty) strawberry Mad Dog 20 20... the flavorings of these are to-taste with everyone, naturally, but 2 brands in, and it's apparent each variation was designed to appeal to an adolescent palate (1468)

This is a party drink, you only break these out if you're trying to get drunk. Very sugary, makes your teeth feel gritty.

Clear light pink liquid with small white head. Aroma of strawberries, sugar, boost, grain and sugar. Taste is medium to high sweet and light bitter with notes of strawberries, sugar and boost. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Awful.

24 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - Pinkish red cloudy. No foam or lacing.
Smell - Identical aroma to Mountain Dew Code Red.
Taste - I bought this to give it a try because i like margaritas. This doesn't taste like a margarita and is too carbonated to even remotely be similar. I knew it would be not like a authentic margarita but it isn't close enough. It tastes like mountain dew soda, can't even pick up the alcohol. The sweetness level is nuts. It needs more lime or strawberry flavor and less sugar. The only real fruit flavor is cherry.

Well live and learn, won't be messing with this mess of a beverage again. Should have known better. Grade is D-

I love everything about the Straw-Ber-Rita drink. The sweet smell, sweet-yet tart flavor and pleasant color. I am totally hooked on the taste and relaxed feeling I get after drinking a couple small cans or one big can. I love the Lime and pineapple flavors of this too. Not so much the mango. For the record, if I wanted a regular non sweetened tasting beer, I'd go for Samuel Adams Lager, though the original Bud Light is acceptable too.

My spouse bought a case of this for a guest who was staying with us, thinking she might like it. She didn't. I had one. It was awful. After this stuff sat ignored in our fridge for awhile, we gave it to a neighbor who drinks a lot of Bud Light. Later we discovered a fugitive can in the back of the fridge. We threw it out. Good riddance.

I can't believe there is a market for this swill. Horrible.

Poured from the can into a Budweiser pilsner glass.

A giant bit of fizz, with a fast dissolving and noisy pink/purple like head. No puck or collar, and some very fast soda cabonation. Body color is a neon Hawaiian Punch color, a sort of dark neon pink and red.

The aroma is just massive as soon as the can is opened. It smells like Hawaiian Punch and incredibly sticky sweet. There is to credit though a mix of rock salt and lime giving off the instant margarita in a slushy machine vibe so it's at least true to form.

Palate is a bit of a surprise. Slight syrup but not totally in feel. Touches of boozy fruit strawberry, and a bit of sugar but not horribly. Lime tang a bit in the mid palate that makes for a good contrast to the non strawberry sweetness. Once again, alcohol goes right into your gut and system.

This was one of the more enjoyable ones of the series I had, but it comes with the usual and obvious faults. Can't see myself having more than 2 of these in a sitting and enjoying myself.

Bought a 25oz can $2.99 Marukai
Smells like strawberry Jello
Bright pink-red color
Medium carbonation
Medium syrupy mouthfeel
Taste like strawberry jello with an alcohol aftertaste, Overly sweet
Overall not for me. I don't know why this would be considered a beer. It has nothing to do with Bud Light.

My wife keeps purchasing this and figured I'd give it a try. Very light pink in color. Has a very fruity sugary smell. Very strong alcohol taste and very fruity.
