Seltzy The Crush Huckleberry LingonberrySeltzy “The Crush” Huckleberry Lingonberry Tastes Like Mountain Berries

Not everyone has heard of (or tasted) huckleberry and lingonberry. They are both plants that are popularly grown in and around mountains (especially in North America). Huckleberry is the state fruit of Idaho. Huckleberry has a tart flavor that is similar to blueberry (with a hint of wild berry as well). Lingonberry, which is also called a mountain cranberry or cowberry, is sour, tart, and slightly sweet. These mountain berry flavors are what inspire the Seltzy “The Crush” Huckleberry Lingonberry. We were incredibly intrigued by the concept, so we tried these hard seltzers. Overall, it features a unique taste that is very different and enjoyable. Here are our thoughts below. 

Fun Berry Flavors

Seltzy “The Crush” Huckleberry Lingonberry Hard Seltzer combines two mountain berries together for a great-tasting hard seltzer. We noticed that this provides a unique flavor experience that is not entirely similar to anything we have tasted before. Anytime you can try a new hard seltzer flavor, we highly recommend it. This one certainly delivered the goods, and we enjoyed it. There is a faint sweetness to each sip. The berry flavor is incredibly prominent (and tasty). However, it is unique from other berry-inspired hard seltzers. The huckleberry and lingonberry natural flavors are distinctly different than the more popular cranberry, strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry flavors that you may be more accustomed to with hard seltzers. It is a great choice for hard seltzer enthusiasts that enjoy berry-inspired drinks, although you are likely in for a surprise as the taste experience is truly different than anything else we have found out there. 

A Light Hard Seltzer Made With Teton Water

This hard seltzer is very light in terms of calories. It features only 90 calories per can. There are also no carbs in each can as well.  The Seltzy “The Crush” Huckleberry Lingonberry has a 4% alcohol-by-volume. You can enjoy a light alcohol experience without fearing a heavy boozy feeling after consuming a can. Seltzy also makes these hard seltzers with gluten-free ingredients. The ingredients primarily include purified water, alcohol from dextrose, natural flavors, citric acid, and carbon dioxide. In fact, this hard seltzer is created with Teton water. There are no carbs and only 0.5 grams of sugar as well. 

Great for Cocktail Mixes

On Seltzy “The Crush” Hard Seltzer cans, the brand offers a way to enjoy their hard seltzer as a cocktail mix. All you need is a stemless wine glass, crushed ice, lemon, and rosemary. It makes for an excellent cocktail. However, you can also enjoy their delicious flavor straight out of the can as well. We recommend serving it as cold as possible, either by storing it in your fridge or in a cooler full of ice. Guests are likely to be intrigued by these hard seltzers, so be sure to stock plenty if you intend to offer them during get-togethers. The bottom line: we highly recommend this hard seltzer. It has an excellent flavor profile and offers a unique experience. We particularly appreciated that it was lighter than most hard seltzers.
