I was trepidacious about this upon reading the label, but I’m pleased to report that the flavors are subtle. Almost too subtle. Like several sips in, the pepper finally starts accumulating enough to register. Otherwise, I have to admit I don’t really get the peanut here, even though it’s the third ingredient listed behind water and barley. Hmmm.

Sits somewhere between rounded strawberry and lemon-pine. Bright, clear flavor with maybe just a little too much alcohol poking through. Finishes clean if slightly bitter, but always seems to be almost at the edge of crossing over into something less pleasant.

First impression was a bit of a shock because I didn’t read the label, but after a few more sips, it started to really come together. I mean, this is pretty much eating a Mounds bar in liquid, alcoholic form. They should add some almonds to it and make it even better. Also, this is totally silly but I like the *feel* of the matte finish on the can. Yeah, I said that. It matters.
