Bud Light Seltzer Maple Pear Hard Seltzer Tries to Offer a Taste of Fall

Bud Light Seltzer Maple Pear— Nothing brings home the flavor of the Fall season as much as the succulent nodes of maple syrup. The creation of maple syrup is a fascinating process. First trees must be tapped with metal spigots to draw out its inner sap. Then sap is boiled over an open fire until the syrup is secured. The syrup is typically made from the sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees. It was first made by Native Americans and was later adopted by European settlers. Served on pancakes, waffles, French toast, and oatmeal, maple syrup truly is the flavor of Fall comfort food. Doing its best to bring the comforting flavors of Fall to the spiked sparkling water market is Bud Light Seltzer Maple Pear Hard Seltzer.

Smells Like Candy

When trying a new flavor of hard seltzer, often the first test of greatness comes in the form of the fragrance of the beverage. In the case of Bud Light Maple Pear Hard Seltzer, once you open the can you are greeted by an intense and highly tempting sweet aroma that is eerily reminiscent of butterscotch. It is a sweet and savory fragrance that will get your tummy rumbling. Not only does the fragrance harken memories of butterscotch, there is also an element of maple candy to the scent. It is definitely a very sweet fragrance.

Bug Light Seltzer Maple Pear Tries Hard for Fall Flavor

This flavor from the Bud Light Seltzer Fall Flannel Variety Pack will satisfy serious maple syrup fans, but is likely too sweet for many. When you take your first sip, you will be impressed with the authentic maple flavor, if that’s your thing. Wait for a moment and you will also detect the slight fruit finish of pear. The combination of maple and pear is an interesting one. It is a flavor combination that works, but again, is definitely on the sweet side thanks to the use of stevia leaf extract as a sweetener. It has a candy-like flavor that will satisfy those with a sweet tooth. But due to the excessive sweetness, this may be considered a “one and done” seltzer for many.
