Pear is delicious on its own. Now, imagine the addition of the enormous fruit flavors that kiwi, bergamot orange, and lemon provide (along with the nice complement of basil). This is the combination offered in Scarlet Letter Spiked Seltzer Pear, Kiwi, Bergamot, Basil, Lemon. Scarlet Letter took a bold risk with this hard seltzer. This drink is packed with five featured flavors. Initially, this seemed as if it may have been too much. However, we understood why they added so much flavor as soon as we took our first sip. We were enthused by the numerous flavors that this hard seltzer offers, along with a low alcohol-by-volume per can and very few carbs and calories. Our reviewers tested this hard seltzer. Below we summarize their experience.

Dominant Pear Flavor with Excellent Complementary Flavors

Drinking a can of Scarlet Letter Spiked Seltzer Pear, Kiwi, Bergamot, Basil, Lemon was truly a delicious experience. However, as expected, some of the ingredients stood out far more than the others. For instance, we did not taste the basil all that much (but there is a subtle taste of it there if you look for it). The pear is without question the most dominant flavor. The lemon serves as an excellent complement to the pear as well. There is a nice tart finish for each sip, presumably from the kiwi, lemon, and bergamot combination. We also picked up on the pear aroma more so than any of the other flavors. The aromatic presence of the pear was satisfying and adds to the overall vibe of this hard seltzer.
