Truly Watermelon & Kiwi Hard Seltzer Teases with a Candy-Like Sweetness

Truly Watermelon & Kiwi Hard Seltzer— Do you remember going to the State Fair each year as a kid? There was prize livestock to look at, award winning pies to sample, and some of the biggest specimens of watermelon anyone has ever seen. We are talking about some truly giant watermelons! You couldn’t help but start to daydream about how wonderful it would be to have a giant slice of one of those giant melons. Imagining the watery soft fruit slowly dissolving into pure flavor bliss in your mouth. You’d hardly even have to chew. Truly Watermelon & Kiwi Hard Seltzer will bring back those fond memories.

Inviting Aroma

When you open a can of Truly Watermelon & Kiwi Hard Seltzer you get a polite fragrance. A sweet-smelling invitation of the beverage yet to come. Made from cane sugar and natural flavors, there is an element of Jolly Rancher candy to the aroma that greets you. However, that tantalizing candy scent does not translate into a lot of empty calories you would find in watermelon candy. Each can of this spiked sparkling water has just 100 calories, with 2 grams of total carbohydrates and 1 gram of total sugars. And this gluten free seltzer has a 5% alcohol by volume (ABV), which is pretty average for most flavors found in our Truly Hard Seltzer Reviews. However, Truly Extra Peach Mango and Truly Extra Black Raspberry have an 8% ABV.

Truly Watermelon & Kiwi Hard Seltzer Has a Jolly Rancher Flavor

Once you take your first sip of this Truly Hard Seltzer flavor, you’ll be transported to paradise. The Jolly Rancher fragrance converts to a Watermelon Jolly Rancher flavor. If there is any question, this is a good thing. The sweet syrupy goodness of the watermelon flavor cascades all over your palate. The taste plays a symphony of delight for your taste buds. The only disappointing thing about the flavor is no clear indication of kiwi. Kiwi is, of course, a more subtle flavor than that of watermelon. But there really is not even as much as a hint of it. And in what could be a favorite hard seltzer for entertaining, this one has a very clean aftertaste. There is no lingering mineral taste and the carbonation level is excellent as well.

Great Bubbles Ahead

Offering a very good ratio of bubbles to flavor, Truly Watermelon & Kiwi Hard Seltzer is a very enjoyable seltzer. With an aroma and flavor reminiscent of a Watermelon Jolly Rancher, this hard seltzer is perfect for entertaining friends and family. If you are planning a backyard barbeque or a casual evening get together, you’ll want plenty of this one on hand. The only real complaint about this otherwise enjoyable spiked sparkling water is that there is not much of a kiwi flavor. While the watermelon flavor is divine, it would be nice to be able to detect some kiwi flavor. Nevertheless, with no mineral aftertaste and sweet candy-like flavor, this seltzer delivers an enjoyable drinking experience from beginning to end.
