Kona Starfruit Lime Promises the Ultimate Flavor Combination

Starfruit (or carambola) is a tropical fruit that is native to Southeast Asia. It is a sweet fruit that is similar in flavor to the kiwi berry. Starfruits are also tart as well as sweet. We were immediately intrigued when we learned that Kona Spiked Island Seltzer uses starfruit to create an exciting and original hard seltzer. Kona Starfruit Lime also adds the slightly sour taste of lime as the perfect complement to the sweet flavor of the starfruit, combining the two for what promises to be the ultimate hard seltzer flavor combination. We decided to test this hard seltzer from Kona Spiked Island Seltzer, and here is what we found.

Beautiful Hawaiian Branding

Say hello to the liquid aloha that is the Kona Starfruit Lime Spiked Island Seltzer. This hard seltzer brings a tropical vibe to the table and presents a unique taste option. If you love the flavor of starfruit, or if you are intrigued by new and unique flavor combinations for your hard seltzer, then this is worthy of consideration. The exotic flavor is a nice alternative to the sweeter fruit flavors such as watermelon, pineapple, and tangerine. Kona Brewing Company has a uniquely tropical brand that underscores the taste of the Starfruit Lime hard seltzer. The brewing takes place in Hawaii by Kona Brewing Company. They also have unique packaging, and their cans are nicely designed as well.

Tropical and Exotic Taste

Kona makes their Starfruit Lime Hard Seltzer with carbonated filtered water, organic cane sugar, and natural flavors. The primary natural flavors include starfruit and lime. Exotic is the best word we can think of to describe this unique and tropical starfruit seltzer flavor. The lime adds a kick of citrus that complements the starfruit well. You can taste how authentic the flavors are. The natural flavors simply provide a better experience than artificially flavored hard seltzers. The aroma of the starfruit and lime, the color of the beverage, and the unique taste all combine for a truly natural seltzer experience. Each seltzer is also highly carbonated, which creates nice bubbles and helps each one go down smoothly and easily.

A Pleasant Starfruit Experience

Starfruit is a unique flavor that everyone should try. If you enjoy tropical flavors, then we recommend trying the Kona Starfruit Lime. The sweet and tart taste of starfruit combined with the slightly sour flavor of lime makes for a delicious choice. As discussed, the branding is also very nice with Kona, and it is certain to catch the attention of friends and family at the next event you host. The alcohol is light at 5% ABV but still noticeable after you consume more than one. Overall, it is an intriguing carbonated hard seltzer option that is perfect for when you want to enjoy tropical vibes wherever you are.
