Light pink, light effervescence. Pretty clean aroma. On the palate, strong mineral up front nicely blended with strawberry and watermelon, with green grabby acid and a perfect touch of salinity. Light sweetness is perfectly balanced with acid, leaving an overall impression of unripe apples. The flavor lingers quite respectably too, oscillating between watermelony fruit and minerality. $10 is a bargain for this!

Strawberry and melon flavors. A bit of saline in the finish.

My bottle was bright pink, but no matter, it's a freaking 10. Honeydew, watermelon, cantaloupe realness. I can get in trouble with this. And only $7!

Fresh cherries on the nose. Cherry, strawberry, apple, and watermelon on the palate. Slightly effervescent with a nice dry finish despite all of the fruit.
