Truly Grapefruit is Fragrant, Flavorful, and Fun

Truly Grapefruit Hard Seltzer— Let us start by saying not everyone is a fan of grapefruit flavored drinks. Whether it be juices, sparkling waters, or hard seltzers. But we will also admit that Truly Grapefruit Hard Seltzer is pretty darn good. It’s an excellent bubbly beverage with great taste and has a wonderful citrus scent. It’s a pretty solid drink overall. But if you’re a fan of the mighty fruit then this drink will definitely hit the spot for you. It combines everything you love about your favorite fruit and kicks it up a notch with an added level of carbonation.

Refreshing Grapefruit Aroma

It has a lilting citrus smell that refreshes you at first whiff. Its sip is tingly on the tongue and not flat at all. Its carbonation is even, pleasant, and consistent. The fruity and floral scents are effervescent, vivacious, and overall present uniformly throughout each taste. This citrus-inspired hard seltzer is simply good despite being authentically flavored by a fruit that is so unpopular. No one could have thought that a grapefruit flavored drink could be likeable, but Truly Hard Seltzer has done a fine job in making this flavor more approachable.

Truly Grapefruit Hard Seltzer is Sassy Sweet & Sour

Truly’s version of this grapefruit flavored spiked sparkling water is sweet but also tart. And that’s what we liked about it. Its sassy sourness lends a punch to its personality, giving it a refreshing taste and crisp finish. The surprisingly agreeable taste is enough to prod you to buy this hard seltzer alone, but considering that it only has 100 calories and is gluten-free provides even more motivation. It also has only 1g of sugar and 2g of carbs. Moreover, it doesn’t have any hidden chemicals or flavor additives, only flavors from the fruit itself. Plus, at a pretty standard 5% ABV you can enjoy more than one without many surprises. You don’t need any mixers or additional alcohol to enjoy this drink. Just open the can and enjoy. However, having said that, it also makes a great Paloma by adding just a splash of Tequila. It would also make a sophisticated and edgy gin cocktail.

A Good Go-To Grapefruit

After sampling this flavor and comparing it to other Seltzer Nation Truly hard seltzer reviews, we have no problem recommending it as a quality spiked citrus offering for your guests. Overall this seltzer is a respectable avatar of the grapefruit and one that we’d suggest to fans of the fruit. We might even tell the the haters to give it a try too. If they want to give this flavor another chance for romance, that is. The refined palate might detect a slight lemony nuance as if someone mixed some grapefruit flavor in with a Sprite lemon lime citrus soda. But otherwise, most would agree it is a decent representation of the fruit’s true flavor. It would be great at the beach, at the neighborhood barbecue, or at the family picnic. Basically, you find the occasion and Truly Grapefruit Hard Seltzer will be there to make it a little more fun.
