Big fan of J Wakefield and so glad this is was on tap. What a treat to try this beer.

Spot on flavor, and pretty close appearance, of red Gatorade. Not traditional, but quite fun to drink.

Wow. Like Chrissy Teigen on Twitter, this one is wild. Keep my lil soldier away from this stuff, because if he could, he would lap this up! This intoxicating beverage has Raul reminiscing on his ‘tot ‘ days. You know, pin the tail on the burro, beat da hell out of piñata... this beer is exactly that, that fruit punch that you would lap up after playing said party activities! Well, it also has a lil alcohol kick that adult Raul likes, but wow!! Nostalgia in a beer, can that be beat?

Be well, my children.

A: Red. Translucent. Off white foamy head with a pinkish hue. Some lacing along the edge of the glass. Gorgeous and fun.

S: They absolutely nailed the fruit punch thing. I’d say it’s less red Gatorade (which would be a less intense and more watery sweetness) and more of a concentrated Hi C aroma. The liquid and the powder too. It’s a sweet nose with slight hint of acidity, if any at all. Again, super fun. And delicious.

T: The flavor is not as sweet as the nose. It’s lactic acidity is prominent with notes of tart lemon juice, in addition to the fruit punch notes. The wheat comes through on the finish a hint.

M: Smooth carbonation. A little fuller than the typical Berliner.

D: For a fruit punch inspired Berliner, I would say that they absolutely nailed this beer. The color and nose are something special and the flavor is also excellent. It’s quite acidic, but manageable.

Looks like fruit punch Gatorade. Smell is also fruit punch, more like Hawaiian-C or something like that. A little artificial tasting as well, but certainly nails the fruit punch Gatorade aroma and flavour. Mild lactic acidity, touch of wheat. Lighter bodied, refreshing. Don't know if it hydrates as well as the real thing, but it smells and tastes like it for sure.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, green session. Neon pink color with pinkish head. Aroma has marzipan, bubblegum bold orange and pomegranate. Tastes like a tart fruit bubblegum, fresh and dry.

Welp, JWB does it again. This one looks weirdly identical to Hawaiian Punch. Neon red with pretty much no head, do I need to spell it out?

At first whiff, I'm seriously wondering if they just used a Kool-Aid packet. Lime pineapple cherry, a perfectly clean mixture of fruit punch. Round, bright, sweet and not sour smelling at all.

Taste hits all the same notes of fruit punch, but is closer to limeade and is sour and gose-like, with a slight cheesy funk, thankfully. But it's too sweet.

Tangy, but watery, finishing semi-dry.
