Single can pick up from from the gas station in rural Northern Nevada. $3 why not.

Pours like red punch. Not as bright as Hawaiian punch, but punchy, slightly darker. Makes this offwhitepinkish head 1/5". Its a pretty color. Imagine maybe red and purple. Together, at last. The aroma is punchy. Lots of cherry limeaid going on.

The taste is pretty straightforward, you get fruit punch with a little bit of basic sourness. I mean, they are who they said they were. I have some friends who are into this kind of beer, so I basically save stuff like them for that audience. Its both sweet and sour, but neither one too excessive as they buttress each other.

Its a beer that won't make most people think of it as a beer. That's ok. Every summer cooler needs one of these to mix it up. It delivers on the blackberry, lime and cherry. Its relatively affordable. You could do a lot worse. If you want a light sour fruit punch can, this is your jam.

Looks like punch alright- purple red body with a light purple head. Smell is lactic, slightly sour, and hinting of bread dough and raspberry. Taste is quite sour. Raspberry, blackberry and plum, a bit of tart acidity, and a slightly sweeter finish. Mouthfeel is dry and crisp. Pretty good, though nothing groundbreaking.

On tap in a tulip. Look is reddish amber, very light head. Smell is more like a wine than any beer I’ve had. Berries and tannins. Taste follows the smell, much more like a fruity red wine than a beer. Slight bit of citric tartness, but not puckering or overwhelming. Feel is a bit slick, carb on the low side. There is also a salinity I didn’t notice at first, but I feel the saltiness on my lips as I drink the pint. Overall an interesting beer, but not in my style wheelhouse.

This is still really good im just getting ultra bored with the selection I find where I work and in general in Colorado. This place has so many brews and we only ever seem to get these sours. Anyways, this is solid but somehow many least favorite

12oz can. Poured out a clear, reddish pink color with a good-sized, off-white head of foam. It left minimal lacing on the glass. It smelled of cherry, berries, lemon and some cracker sweetness. Strong tart black cherry taste with lemon and some sweet berries.

On tap:

Pours a dark raspberry red color with very light pink bubbles around the circumference of the glass.

Smell is a great balance between sour cherry and the sweet berries.

The taste follows the nose. In terms of fruits, I mainly get cherry and blackberry. There’s a bit of a salty character present throughout. The sourness is a bit funky, but rather than overpowering it, it adds to the overall product.

Feel is a bit too thick and syrupy for me, but there is just enough carbonation that I find it pleasant overall.

Overall, I’m not a super fan of sours most of the time, but I do like this one, and I would go so far as to call it the best one I have tried.

Cranberry red pour with a small amount of fizzy white head that doesn't hang around long. Aroma is sour with cherry and other berry notes. I assume it's the blackberry, but I would not have picked it up as that unprompted. Taste mostly follows the nose, and feel is thin and somewhat undercarbonated. Overall, this beer is meh. Not great, not bad.
