Colt 45 Strawberry Lemonade BlastOctober 10th, 2012 beckel
So it’s been a while. Far too long in fact. So I bring you something closer to my heart than you may realize: Blast by Colt 45.
Pours a florescent pink hue with two fingers of light pink head. The majority of the head settles quickly leaving a small amount of lacing and residual bubbles. Smells of cotton candy, fruity bubble gum, artificial strawberries, lemons, gentle acidity and lots of sugar. The 12% ABV is well hidden in the aroma with a bit of a sweet and sour warheads thing going on. Tastes of somewhat chemically artificial flavors, strawberry, lemon, lime, cherry, tons of sugar and an almost bitter alcohol character. Body is light and the mouthfeel is sticky, a bit syrupy and tingles your tongue with carbonation. Considering the ABV of this alcopop it is remarkably drinkable, if you don’t mind the eventual alcohol burn that creeps up your throat. With 23.5 oz (695 ml) of that kind of goodness what could go wrong. In summary Blast is part sweet, part tang, part awful and part awesome, probably two parts sweet. Definitely not a drink for the heartburn prone. Always a good drink if you have enough radishes to chase it with. Give it a shot and ride your bike. Blast off!
