Mystic Reef Lime

Mystic Reef Lime Tastes Crisp

Lime is an excellent addition to any hard seltzer. That is, lime that tastes natural and authentic is a fantastic addition. In fact, lime is one of the most popular hard seltzer flavors out there. Often, hard seltzer producers mix lime with other fruit flavors to produce a sweet citrus flavor. Mystic Reef’s Lime Hard Seltzer takes the lime experience to the next level, making it the focal point of the drink entirely rather than as a flavor enhancer. We love that they have decided to give the lime flavor center stage, and we are certainly here to try it. Our reviewers at Seltzer Nation put this hard seltzer to the test. Below is a comprehensive review of their experience.

A Natural and Strong Lime Experience

Mystic Reef Lime Hard Seltzer packs lime flavor into every sip. In fact, this drink tastes a little like lime candy (think Fun Dip!). Although, this hard seltzer is not as sour as many lime-flavored candies tend to be (nor does it have anywhere near the same amount of sugar). Instead, the lime tastes natural. It tastes as if fresh lime juice is squeezed directly into every can. There is a strong lime aroma as well. Despite how prominent the lime is, this hard seltzer by Mystic Reef still provides a nice balance of flavors. The flavor does not hang around as a strong aftertaste (which is what we expected). However, with that said, there is a little bite of alcohol.

Light in Sugar and Carbs, Powerful in Flavor

Mystic Reef makes its Lime Hard Seltzer with cane sugar, natural flavors, citric acid, and sodium citrate. There are only 2 grams of carbs and 2 grams of sugar. This makes it a relatively light alcoholic drink. It is also gluten-free, so you can enjoy it even if you have a gluten allergy, sensitivity to gluten, or simply prefer not to consume gluten. For the alcohol content, these drinks have a 6% ABV. You can expect a light to moderate kick with every can you consume.

A Great Choice for Lime Seltzer Enthusiasts

Overall, Mystic Reef Lime Hard Seltzer is a nice beverage choice that bursts with the sweet citrusy flavor of lime. If you do not enjoy lime as much as other fruit ingredients, then you may find this drink overpowering. However, if you enjoy the fresh and crisp taste of lime, then you are in for a treat with this hard seltzer. You can enjoy these drinks at any time of year, whether it is outside on a hot summer day or indoors while it’s cold outside during the winter months. Although we recommend losing the can and pouring this drink over a glass of ice, they are equally enjoyable when you pull them directly out of the fridge and drink them straight out of the can.
