Mystic Reef Black Cherry

Mystic Reef Black Cherry

Black cherry has long been used in alcoholic beverages due to its delicious flavor when mixed with alcohol. Many black cherry seltzers use artificial flavors to provide a taste that is, at times, all too similar to the taste of cherry cough syrup. Mystic Reef Black Cherry provides you with a delicious hard seltzer full of natural flavors. The natural taste is truly noticeable and allows for an authentic black cherry hard seltzer experience. Although the fruit taste can be too punchy for some, this is an interesting option that black cherry lovers have to try, especially due to its combination of natural (rather than noticeably artificial) flavors. 

Natural Flavors for a Great Taste

Mystic Reef Black Cherry Hard Seltzer combines natural flavors with citric acid, cane sugar, and sodium citrate. The natural flavors create a taste that is simply natural. There are no cough syrup flavors here. The taste of cherry is noticeable upon the first sip. There is a nice aftertaste of cherry as well. It is incredibly fruity overall. In fact, it tastes like a mix between black cherry and berries. This is great for those who love a strong fruit taste. However, it may not be as ideal for those who want a simpler flavor. You can taste the alcohol, but it sips more like a carbonated soft drink than it does an alcoholic beverage.

Bubbly With Fruity Aromas

Mystic Reef Black Cherry Hard Seltzer provides a bubbly experience that gives it an original hard seltzer vibe. The nice bubbles provide a satisfying taste that goes down easy and smooth. This hard seltzer has an alcohol content of 5% alcohol by volume (ABV), so it is not too boozy. It is also low in sugar (2 grams total) and gluten-free. Pop open a can, and the aroma of black cherries fills the room. This juicy aroma is the first thing you will notice. It is a good choice if you are searching for a seltzer that can put you in a relaxed mood after a long day of work. 

Calling All Black Cherry Lovers

Mystic Reef Black Cherry is a delicious hard seltzer with a bounty of fruit flavor. The ingredients and taste are natural. The bubbly nature of this seltzer also helps it go down easy. There is a slight kick of alcohol, but it is not too boozy at a 5% ABV. In fact, it tastes similar to a carbonated soft drink. Thankfully, this drink contains only 2 grams of sugar. So, it may taste sweet, but it won’t give you that jittery sugar-high feeling. In summary, we recommend this seltzer, particularly for those who enjoy a strong and natural fruit flavor. It may not be the best choice if you prefer drinks with a lighter flavor and no aftertaste. In other words, black cherry lovers should try this beverage due to its natural flavors.
