Nutrl Classic CranberryNutrl Classic Cranberry is Tart and Sweet

Not everyone loves the taste of cranberry. Cranberries are tart berries that (to some) need added sugar to taste enticing. However, many people absolutely love the unique flavor that cranberry delivers. Cranberry hard seltzers and canned cocktails are growing in popularity. In fact, Nutrl Cranberry bases a whole line of vodka seltzers around this delicious berry flavor. The Cranberry Variety Pack comes with four takes on the cranberry flavor, Classic Cranberry, Cranberry Orange, Cranberry Grapefruit, and Cranberry Apple. Classic Cranberry is the most straightforward cranberry flavor in the pack. Subsequently, we knew that we must give this one a try, and we did. In this review, our Seltzer Nation taste testers provide insights into the overall experience this hard seltzer provides. Specifically, we highlight the taste, aroma, ingredients, and overall vibe, along with providing our recommendations. 

A Vodka Cranberry with Natural Flavor

Nutrl Classic Cranberry Hard Seltzer offers a smooth and fresh taste that is powered by real cranberry juice. The natural cranberry flavor reminds us of an old-fashioned jar of cranberry juice. Much like natural cranberries, this hard seltzer’s flavor is not too sweet and not overly tart. Instead, it provides a deliciously balanced taste experience There isn’t a sour aftertaste as is often the case with other berry-inspired hard seltzers, particularly those that are enhanced with fake sweeteners. The vodka is also excellent (albeit relatively light). The level of carbonation is high but doesn’t overpower the experience. 

A Light Hard Seltzer That Uses Real Fruit Juice

The Nutrl Cranberry makes its Classic Cranberry with vodka, seltzer, and real fruit juice. As mentioned, the seltzer provides an excellent level of carbonation. The bubbles give this drink a lively feel that is delivered in every sip; you never feel as if this hard seltzer is flat. There are 100 calories in each 12-ounce can. The Nutrl Cranberry Classic Cranberry also has only 4.5% alcohol, which is just enough to help take the edge off without providing too strong a kick. It is also a gluten-free hard seltzer option, and there are only 2.4 grams of sugar as well. We enjoy the branding with Nutrl Cranberry also. Do not be surprised if these hard seltzers are some of the first to go at your next get-together due to their enticing design. 

A Delicious Cranberry Flavor That Does Not Disappoint

We can probably all agree that cranberry flavor is at its best when it’s natural and doesn’t have artificial sweeteners added. You do not have to worry about artificial ingredients or sweeteners with the Nutrl Cranberry Classic Cranberry. There are no fake sweeteners; instead, you enjoy real cranberry juice with every sip. Cranberry is also unique in the sense you can enjoy it equally during the summer and winter months. In other words, it somehow feels like a fresh summer drink as well as a great choice during the holidays. Overall, we highly recommend this hard seltzer, especially for seltzer drinkers who love the tart taste that cranberry provides.
