Michelob ULTRA Seltzer Review: Blueberry Watermelon
Michelob ULTRA Blueberry Watermelon is a Smooth Sail to The Tropics
While the debate on the origin of watermelon has continued to rage, it has not stopped people from enjoying this age-old gift of nature. Watermelons are sweet, refreshing, and hydrating. They’re a Summertime staple at barbecues, pool parties, and trips to the beach. And the fruit’s uses doesn’t stop there. Michelob ULTRA had the innovative idea of utilizing the sweet and refreshing taste of watermelon in their organic seltzer. If you’re a fan of spiked seltzer, you’d probably have seen Michelob ULTRA Organic Seltzer flavor pack with Blueberry Watermelon during one of your visits to the liquor store. But what is it, and why is it becoming increasingly popular? Our team decided to check it out, and here is what we think about the beverage that’s becoming a popular delight.
Truly Organic Seltzer
From the moment we pop open a can of Michelob ULTRA Blueberry Watermelon, the scent of blueberries envelopes us. Upon our first sip, we taste a light but fruity flavor. The blueberry flavor comes through first, followed by the watermelon. The taste is authentic, and the first sip transports you to the awesome warmness of the tropical countries. And it doesn’t stop there. We notice that the flavor, feel, and aroma gets better with every sip. The flavors twist together nicely. The first few sips remind us of a funky soft-serve twist. The carbonation is low-key and constant, and its flavor does not dissipate at any point. But don’t worry – the alcohol content is low, so you won’t get knocked over by a few sips or can.
Taste for Days
For a lighter tasting seltzer, the Michelob ULTRA Blueberry Watermelon seltzer’s flavor does not disappoint. Neither does its aroma. One of the main draws is the organic component that makes it a favorite drink for any event. Michelob ULTRA makes their Blueberry Watermelon Organic Seltzer with a combination of purified water, organic cold-fermented cane sugar, organic blueberry juice, natural organic flavors, organic white grape juice from concentrate, organic coconut water, citric acid, and organic malted rice. The drink contains a higher than average 4 grams of carbs and 3 grams of sugar. However, this offering has only 90 calories per can. The alcohol content is also on the lower side at a 4% abv. And yes, it is gluten-free, so you can serve it to the most gluten-sensitive guests without fear.
We really enjoyed the deep, rich, and fruity flavor of Michelob ULTRA Blueberry Watermelon. We were pleased by the fun watermelon twist added to the deeper berry flavor. Although it’s a lighter tasting seltzer, this flavor does not disappoint. This beauty gives you the sweet of blueberries and the refreshing feel of a watermelon, so as you take each sip, it feels like you’re biting into your favorite fruits. Unlike many other drinks in its category, this one is sweet with a fair amount of sugar. We recommend adding it to your cooler when you’re gearing up for another Seltzer Summer.
