Seagram’s Hard Seltzer Review: Tropical Pineapple
Seagram’s Tropical Pineapple Hard Seltzer Tastes Like a Fruity Punch
— When you think of the tropics, you think of the wonderfully zesty and vibrant fruits of those regions. Pineapple is one of those fruits that seems to make everything better. Add pineapple juice to your favorite alcohol and you have a tropical drink. Add in a blender and some ice and you really have a party on your hands. But pineapple is so much more than just for adult beverages. Have you ever tried ham and pineapple pizza? It is actually remarkably good. And what about a banana split? One of the toppings used in addition to chocolate and strawberry is pineapple. At the end of the day, pineapple is a taste that can be appreciated on its own merits, but it is also a great taste to blend with other flavors. That’s the idea behind Seagram’s Tropical Pineapple Hard Seltzer.
You Can Taste The Guava
Once you actually taste a can of Seagram’s Tropical Pineapple Hard Seltzer, you’ll immediately taste guava. While guava is a delightfully good fruit flavor, the fruit in the name of this tropical drink is pineapple. It’s a little disappointing that there is not a clear pineapple flavor to this hard seltzer. Seagram’s should consider rebranding the drink as just a tropical hard seltzer without highlighting pineapple in the name. While the level of recognizable pineapple flavor is low, you may be able to taste trace amounts of watermelon. You will definitely taste guava. Despite not being discernably pineapple, the manufacturer has made a pretty darn good tropical malt-based seltzer. Because it is a malt-based drink, it cannot be considered fully gluten-free.
Seagram’s Tropical Pineapple Hard Seltzer Has a Fruity Fragrance
One of the first criteria for judging a hard seltzer is the aroma bouquet when you open a can. In the case of this Seagram’s Hard Seltzer, when you open a can you are met with a nonspecific fruit scent. Think of it as a tropical punch aroma rather than a pineapple fragrance. Because this hard seltzer is a malt-based beverage it is not gluten-free. However, it is still relatively low in calories. Each can has 100 calories. In addition, each can has 2 grams of total carbohydrates and 1 gram of total sugars. All in all, this fruity spiked sparkling water is very good and sports a 5% alcohol by volume (ABV).
A Tropical Punch
Everyone has a favorite fruit. For some it is pineapple. Pineapple goes great in meals, deserts, and beverages. In the case of Seagram’s Tropical Pineapple Hard Seltzer, there isn’t quite enough obvious pineapple flavor to generate more than a moderate level of excitement for this beverage. It’s still a solid seltzer, but doesn’t bring a full tropical taste compared to some other more exotic flavor options found in our hard seltzer review category. While it has a good tropical fruit punch type of flavor, you won’t necessarily taste the specific flavor of pineapple when you try this flavor. So if you’re planning a luau this summer, you may want to have some other flavors on hand to keep the tropical vibe going.
