The Catalina Wine Mixer was made famous by the comedy movie “Step Brothers,” starring Will Ferrell and John C Reilly. The cult-classic comedy is about two forty-year-old stepbrothers, Dale and Brennan, who have yet to move out of their parents’ homes. The movie comes to a triumphant climax when the stepbrothers perform at the Catalina Wine Mixer, making their family proud and love interests overcome with admiration. However, many are surprised to learn that there really is a Catalina Wine Mixer that takes place every year on Catalina Island. Natural Light Seltzer released a Black Cherry Lime “Catalina Lime Mixer” featuring a play on words from the famous event. This hard seltzer features both black cherry and lime flavors. Due to its intriguing name and flavor, our taste testers here at Seltzer Nations gave this hard seltzer a try. This review includes a summary of our collective thoughts and experiences with the Natural Light Black Cherry Lime “Catalina Lime Mixer.”

Features a Cherry Limeade Taste Experience

Natural Light Black Cherry Lime “Catalina Lime Mixer” features an explosion of cherry flavor. The black cherry is delicious and noticeable from the moment you crack open the can and inhale the aroma to the aftertaste after you take your final sip. The lime adds a twist of citrus flavor. In fact, this hard seltzer tastes similar to a cherry limeade. Although, it is perhaps most similar in flavor to a Cherry 7-Up soft drink. The carbonation is like a soft drink as well. The drink’s fizz level is closer to a soda than a seltzer. Overall, the flavor is very balanced between cherry and lime. The cherry is most notable right away, whereas there is more lime in the aftertaste. There is also a pink color to the liquid, which is nice if you decide to pour your drink over ice.
