Truly Spiked & Sparkling: 3 great flavors

Truly Spiked & Sparkling offers three flavored seltzer-like beverages with the same alcohol content as a Budweiser yet the spiked sparkling water is slightly more potent.

The new low-carb/low calorie drinks were created by the Hard Seltzer Beverage Company, LLC which is an affiliate of the Boston Beer Company.

Available in 6-packs for about $10, flavors include Grapefruit & Pomelo, Pomegranate and Colima Lime.

No artificial flavors or sweeteners are used in production and the spiked drinks are brewed with gluten-free ingredients and contain alcohol derived from cane sugar.

Analysis:

Grapefruit & Pomelo: Elicits a natural grapefruit smell, which is most refreshing. Tastes like flavored seltzer-water and is sweet but not too sweet. Drink would best be utilized after playing sports or working outside on a hot summer day. Much tastier and more natural than Smirnoff Ice or any other comparable products.

Pomegranate: Very similar to Grapefruit & Pomelo in many ways but elicits a more intense smell which can be attributed to pomegranate flavoring. Much sweeter than pomegranate as well and is arguably more intensely flavored. However, the drink is not nearly as sweet as Sprite or any other soft drink genres.

Colima Lime: Smells very similar to Lime Aid and elicits a sweet lime aroma. Tastes very natural and is less sweet than the other two flavors. Produces a dry aftertaste as well. Not all too dissimilar from lemon-lime seltzer water. Alcohol is highly blended and difficult to taste.

Verdict:

Truly Spiked & Sparkling elicits a sweet natural aroma and provides a unique taste that is both refreshing and wholly original. This product is highly recommended and stands head and shoulders above more frequently consumed beverages largely because of its implicit uniqueness. Though more expensive than the average 6-pack, it is considerably more satisfying as well.
