Truly Vodka Seltzer Blackberry & Lemon is Light and Mild

Blackberries and lemons are old friends, often paired together in non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks alike. This makes Truly Vodka Seltzer Blackberry and Lemon a flavor we have high expectations for. Truly pairs juicy blackberry with tart lemon in this vodka seltzer. Both flavors are derived naturally, and as is the case with all Truly Vodka Seltzers, there is premium vodka added. Truly is well known for its delicious seltzers, and since this is a favorite flavor combination for many who love adult beverages, our reviewers had to put it to the test. This review offers insights and opinions from Seltzer Nation taste testers.

A Delicious but Mild Flavor

The berry flavor in the Truly Blackberry & Lemon Vodka Seltzer is far more noticeable than the lemon. However, the blackberry taste is not too overpowering. The lemon is quite subtle. It adds a tart tanginess, but the subtleness of the flavor is nice. Meaning this is a true flavor mix rather than a lemonade with a little berry flavor mixed in. We appreciated the fact that Truly Hard Seltzer did not try and go too heavy on the lemon. The berry aroma is incredibly prominent. You can tell that Truly uses natural ingredients right away due to the strong berry scent. When you pour this vodka seltzer out of the can and over ice, there is a pink color to the liquid. The carbonation is excellent as well.

Natural Ingredients with Low Carbs

Truly makes its Blackberry and Lemon Vodka Seltzer with six-times distilled vodka, fruit juice from concentrate, and natural flavors. This vodka seltzer is also gluten-free. There are 110 calories in this drink. There are four grams of sugar in total. Combined with the delicious natural flavors, the real fruit juice adds to the experience and makes for a delicious canned seltzer. In fact, our reviewers found the taste to be incredibly natural and not too sweet. As mentioned, there is a nice aftertaste as well. The alcohol-by-volume content is 5%, so expect a little kick but nothing overpowering.

A Great Combination of Sweet and Tart Flavors

If you love lemon-inspired seltzers but often find hard lemonades too sour, then Truly Blackberry & Lemon Vodka Seltzer is a subtler option that you can enjoy. The sweetness of the blackberry pairs well with the tart taste of lemon. The flavors are natural and taste as such. We enjoyed that Truly does not go overboard with the flavor combination. The mild taste is great when you want a subtle flavor that is not overpowering. We recommend Truly Vodka Seltzer Blackberry and Lemon when relaxing at home. It is a nice outdoor seltzer as well, and it makes a great addition to any poolside or beach cooler.
