Tierra Buena Hard Seltzer Mango Cayenne Balances Sweet and Spicy

When it comes to hard seltzer flavors, you don’t see mango mixed with cayenne every day. Mango is a sweet, tropical fruit that is filled with juicy flavor. Cayenne is a pepper that is full of heat and fire. Therefore, we were intrigued when we learned about Tierra Buena Hard Seltzer Mango Cayenne. It is rare to find a spicy hard seltzer with a sweet, tropical fruit base. This is certainly an intriguing option that provides a balance between fresh fruit and spicy cayenne pepper. Due to the cayenne, we knew it would be spicy. The hope was that the mango would be able to balance out the spiciness. Our testers gave this hard seltzer a try, and here are their thoughts.

A Spicy Twist to Hard Seltzer

Tierra Buena Hard Seltzer Mango Cayenne provides an intense taste experience that combines the natural flavors of mango and cayenne together. You can taste the mango first, but it’s not long after that the spiciness of the cayenne comes in. In fact, there seems to be more cayenne flavor than there is mango. The cayenne heat intensifies with every sip you take. For many who do not handle spiciness very well, finishing a can may prove to be challenging. The cayenne flavor tends to sit at the back of your tongue at the finish of every sip. Overall, the flavor is intense. However, the mango does balance the spiciness of the cayenne quite well.

A Nice Change of Pace for Seltzer Enthusiasts

Tierra Buena Hard Seltzer Mango Cayenne is made with filtered water, organic alcohol from fermentation, natural flavors, and organic agave sugar. Overall, this hard seltzer is made with 95% organic ingredients. The natural flavors come through with every sip. It is free of any gluten and contains 100 calories. We appreciate the fact that there is only 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of carbs in total. This adult beverage has a 5% ABV, which is average for canned seltzers. Consequently, you can expect some booziness if you dare to drink a second or third can. We really enjoyed the carbonation with this hard seltzer as well. There were lots of bubbles which seemed to help enhance the unique flavor combination.

If You Like Spicy Drinks, This One is For You!

The mango and cayenne combination is not for everyone. However, for the boldest hard seltzer enthusiasts, this is a nice change of pace from the more traditional hard seltzer flavors. The flavor is incredibly intense and spicy. Overall, we found that the bold and intense flavor makes it interesting and keeps you from getting bored. These are certainly a nice addition to any cooler, especially if you have guests over who may prefer a bold flavor. We certainly recommend trying it at least once, as you just might fall in love with the spicy tropical flavor.
