Funky Buddha Tangy Kiwi TangerineFunky Buddha Tangy Kiwi Tangerine Hard Seltzer is Kiwi Forward

Oh, the delicious Kiwi! Originally from China and named the “Chinese Gooseberry,” kiwi has become one of the more popular fruits in North America. Its sweet and tangy flavor provides the perfect punch for a hard seltzer. Funky Buddha is no stranger to the delicious taste of kiwi, and they’ve created this hard seltzer to capture its delicious flavor. But they didn’t stop there. Funky Buddha also added a tangerine taste as well, which pairs nicely with the “main act” of kiwi. Intrigued by the flavor combination, ingredients, and the fact there isn’t any sugar, we decided to give the Funky Buddha Tangy Kiwi Tangerine Hard Seltzer a try. Below is an accumulation of our experience. 

A Lighter Hard Seltzer With 90 Calories And 4.5% ABV

The Funky Buddha Tangy Kiwi Tangerine Hard Seltzer contains alcohol from cane sugar and blue agave, along with a range of natural flavors. The alcohol by volume (ABV) is 4.5%. This is a relatively average amount of alcohol for hard seltzer, so you can expect a light buzz. However, for most casual drinkers, the alcohol is far from overpowering. This is also a low-calorie option — there are only 90 calories per can. So, if you’re searching for a light option, we highly recommend this hard seltzer by Funky Buddha. Not only is it low in calories, but there’s only one gram of carbs total — and it’s entirely sugar-free. To make it even better, this hard seltzer is gluten-free. 

Natural Kiwi Flavor With Tangerine As A Powerful Sidekick

If you love tropical vibes and flavors, the Funky Buddha Tangy Kiwi Tangerine Hard Seltzer won’t disappoint. It boasts a strong kiwi flavor that leaves your taste buds happy. Here are a few specific details about our experience with this Funky Buddha hard seltzer: 

  • Aroma — The scent wasn’t as fruity as we had hoped. You can detect a small hint of kiwi and tangerine, but it’s far from overpowering. 
  • Kiwi Flavor — The first taste you’ll notice is kiwi. It comes through right away and is absolutely delicious. 
  • Tangerine Flavor — As you might imagine, the tangerine takes a backseat to the kiwi. Nevertheless, there is a nice tangerine taste that comes through after you notice the kiwi.  
  • Carbonation — We love how bubbly this hard seltzer is. It provides authentic seltzer vibes, and the carbonation helps the delicious kiwi and tangerine taste go down easy.

Relaxing Vibes, Delicious Flavor: A Great Drink For “Off Days”

Overall, the Funky Buddha Tangy Kiwi Tangerine Hard Seltzer has a nice flavor. We highly recommend this hard seltzer for adults who love kiwi. The flavor is natural and delicious, and the tangerine flavor plays a nice sidekick. The alcohol isn’t overpowering, but you should drink responsibly as there is a punch. The only downside is there wasn’t as strong of a kiwi aroma as we had hoped. However, the taste is stronger than the aroma indicates. 

This hard seltzer is excellent for a relaxing day off from work and other life obligations. If you want a delicious drink with great vibes that helps you relax, then you won’t be disappointed.
