4.05/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours light pink like grapefruit juice with decent white head that quickly dissipates not much lacing.

Aroma - Nice balance of wheat, lemon/lime and a light raspberry. There is a light salty aroma and a little sweetness.

Taste - The taste is not as salty as I expected based on the aroma, more lemon juice and raspberry. There is also a decent amount of wheat. Light refreshing flavors.

Feel - light bodied, crisp prickly carbonation slightly dry finish.

Overall - A really great aroma I could use a little stronger flavors from the salt and raspberry but otherwise a solid beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Poured into a snifter from a can. A striking pinkish-orange hue. There was a modest light pink head that quickly disappeared and left no trace.
Aroma: tart lemon, faint raspberrries, some wheat.
Taste: not as tart as expected - in the mild/moderate range with a nice subtle raspberry and lemon blend. The wheat gave it good balance. The finish was clean and slightly lemony.
Feel: between light and medium bodied with medium carbonation. Easy drinking.
Overall: I really enjoyed this. Crisp and refreshing. Large flavor and good balance.

Very fruity and somewhat tart, the first couple sips I thought it was kind of refreshing (they should have released it for summer rather than fall). But about halfway through the 16 Oz can, it became obvious I wasn't going to be able to finish it. Too much like grapefruit juice, not enough like beer. Gave the rest to my wife, who liked it better than I did. With a name like Pink Drink and the pink can, I think this is marketed more for her than me anyway (or maybe I'm just an ignorant ass). Won't be revisiting this one.
