Bud Light Delivers a Very Respectable Version of This Fickle Fruit Flavor

Bud Light Black Cherry Hard Seltzer— Bud Light Black Cherry Seltzer is a mysterious beauty cloaked in complexity and shrouded in black velvet. Its fragrance provides an intoxicating scent that is so reminiscent of the fruit itself. This exotic yet familiar flavor will evoke images of long marbled corridors and gothic architecture with each sip. This is a hard seltzer that wields all the magic of the black cherry fruit, but captured in a can. And while it’s a perfect seltzer for summer, you can also imagine yourself enjoying this flavor as you watch the fall foliage make its beautiful transition. Or while curled up in front of a cozy fireplace in the middle of a cold and snowy winter. But no matter where you enjoy this black cherry hard seltzer, it’s a grown up’s beverage. It will insist that you take time to savor it, appreciating the nuance that comes with every taste.

Bold and Bubbly

And Bud Light Seltzer has done a commendable job of incorporating the sour tang of the black cherry that is so characteristic of the fruit. The effervescence is notable with zesty bubbles vibrating and buzzing excitedly with each sip. And who can blame them, since they’re swimming in such a delicious drink. This sweet, syrupy hard seltzer comes alive with these bouncing beads of carbonation. The effect is crisp and yet gloriously indulgent. It saves you the trouble of having to combine your favorite spirits with a mixer or tonic, as this self-sufficient drink is already complete. The sourness doesn’t take anything away from this beauty, either. Instead, it reminds you of its passion. This black cherry hard seltzer grounds you and wakes you up with its opulent taste and spirited bubbles. A sparkling and refreshing radiance that comes from well-crafted taste and never-ending fragrance.

Bud Light Black Cherry Seltzer is Gluten Free Fruity Fun

Although it’s a hard seltzer, it may sometimes remind you of an exceptionally light beer. Perhaps the association with Bud Light and beer is so strong that you taste the malt-like flavors. Or it could be the almost fermented like tang of this black cherry spiked sparkling water that — for a brief minute — gives in to the nostalgia. However, unlike beer, this seltzer provides gluten-free refreshment. It certainly deserves your consideration as it firmly holds its own in the ever-expanding hard seltzer market. Though the taste of black cherry might conjure a strong childhood connection with cough medicine for some, the rich, fruity overtones distinguish it from tasting like medicine as some might note about other black cherry seltzers. And while the alcohol is more noticeable at 5% ABV, it’s still moderate enough to enjoy multiple servings without losing your appreciation for what you’re drinking.

A Worthy Performer

After reviewing Bud Light Black Cherry Hard Seltzer, we might say that it’s a gift that keeps on giving. It presents the black cherry fruit flavor quite nicely but with a little extra bite. It’s pungent and indulgent and is at the same time exceptionally soft. Unlike other black cherry hard seltzers, it doesn’t have a medicinal aftertaste and is in fact a lot more like the candy you might remember from your childhood. Its honeylike sweetness is offset with a sharp sourness that balances well, making it a bubbly delight that grows on you with every sip you take. Cheers!
