Somewhat of a malternative

A photo taken on the way back from Strasbourg this week. Yup a beer specifically designed so you can drink and drive. However take a look at this comment on BeerAdvocate
This is a beer that is brewed specifically for the purpose of drinking and driving. At 2.5% ABV, it's not far off the mark.
Appearance: yellowed water, very bubbly with large chunks of lace (?) clinging to the glass.
Smell: somewhat of a malternative, very sweet, almost candy. Very strange.
Taste: Watery, slightly sugary. Metal. Some beer flavor, but really tough to get past the water. This is horrible.
Mouthfeel: like alka seltzer.
Drinkability: I could never get past the taste. If you were to design a beer that was safe to drink while driving, this would be it. Low alcohol and tastes so bad, you'll never get past the first one.
Serving type: bottle

Somehow I don't think I will be trying it.
