Alpha Water Black Cherry

Black cherries grow in North America. They are known for their sweet and slightly tart flavor. This flavor tastes particularly delicious in seltzers and hard seltzers, and because of this, black cherry is a very popular hard seltzer flavor. However, as we all know, no two black cherry hard seltzers taste the same. We came across Alpha Water Black Cherry Hard Seltzer and decided to give it a try. This hard seltzer is an intriguing option because it is made with real fruit juice and a light seltzer base. We put this hard seltzer to the test. In our review, we dive into its taste and ingredients and provide our final thoughts.

A Deep Cherry Flavor and Strong Aroma

The first thing you notice about Alpha Water Hard Seltzer Black Cherry is its strong aroma. It smells just like a maraschino cherry. We notice a fair number of bubbles as soon as we open the can, which helps bring out the aroma and flavor. As soon as you take a sip, you taste the strong cherry flavor. It tastes like a Shirley temple. The cherry flavor is incredibly prominent here. If you love black cherry flavor, then you may very well love this flavor. However, for those who prefer a more subtle cherry experience, the strong flavor can, at times, be overwhelming. With that said, this is an enjoyable hard seltzer. The carbonation is excellent.
