Mighty Swell Blackberry Spiked Seltzer Tastes Like Freshly Picked Blackberries

Mighty Swell Blackberry Spiked Seltzer

— There is nothing like visiting a blackberry farm during harvesting season. The sun casts its bright orange-yellow glow upon the fields creating a happy, carefree atmosphere. The sweet berries are plump and ready to overflow with flavor, hanging daintily from the vines. As you pick the berries from the vine, the delectable juices stain your fingertips on the way to your mouth. And the taste? Pure heaven. The berries are so packed with flavor they almost explode in your mouth. When it comes to taking that true, succulent blackberry flavor and interpreting it for the beverage market, it can be tricky. There is nothing as sinfully good as the flavor of a fresh blackberry done right. Mighty Swell Blackberry Spiked Seltzer is a drink that executes the blackberry flavor perfectly.

Inviting Fragrance

Opening up a can of Mighty Swell Blackberry Spiked Seltzer kicks offs with a delightful bouquet. The mixed-berry odor that hits your nose instantly transports you to memories of picking blackberries in the fields. To be honest, the smell is absolutely divine. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find a more inviting blackberry beverage fragrance. Although this hard seltzer has an ABV of 5% there is no overpowering alcohol odor when you open a can. Rather you get a pleasant mix of sweet berries. While the fragrance is sugary, this unique Mighty Swell hard sparkling water contains only 3 grams of total carbs and 3 grams of total sugars. Not only that, but the drink is 100% gluten free.

Mighty Swell Blackberry Spiked Seltzer Has a Taste to Die For

This blackberry flavored hard seltzer has a very unique, and authentic flavor. The initial taste upon drinking hints of blackberries, blueberries, and other wild berries. The flavor is a tad on the sweet side. While most will enjoy the sweet flavor, some may find it to be too sweet. However, most will find the flavor very good. Keeping with an authentic blackberry flavor, this spiked seltzer tends to be just a tad sour. Not too sour, mind you. Rather, just the right hint of sour to make it a very pleasing drinking experience. The drink has a very nice level of carbonation – not too much, not too little. When you enjoy a taste of this Mighty Swell seltzer, the taste will stick in the back of your throat and stay with you. As long as you enjoy the flavor, it amounts to a rather nice finish.

Overall Great Seltzer

Spiked or hard seltzers are all the rage. Some brands are consistently good with their offerings, others are hit and miss. In the case of Mighty Swell Blackberry Spiked Seltzer, the results are very good. The product has an inviting fragrance and taste that will remind you of picking berries in the summer sun. For this Mighty Swell Seltzer review, we noted that it packs a nice punch, and does so without an overwhelming booze-like finish. And the drink’s level of carbonation seems to be just right for delivering the characteristically nice blackberry taste. Incorporating the essence of other wild berries in addition to blackberries, this is a great hard beverage to enjoy with meals or by itself.
