此后，硬苏打水的领域发生了很大变化 Truly 2016年推出，品牌也是如此.
第一次以“真正的尖刺”亮相 & Sparkling, the 艰难的苏打水 launched in glass bottles and with three flavors: Colima Lime, Grapefruit & 柚子,石榴. In the five years since, the Boston Beer–owned boozy water has ditched the S&S moniker, 从玻璃换成了罐头, and introduced the most extensive range of flavors currently available in the space.
事实证明，Truly在每一个机会都渴望创新. 该品牌非常公开地宣布了一个 味道再形成 in 2019, and inspired a whole new seltzer subcategory via the Truly 艰难的苏打水 Lemonade line, 哪些产品将在2020年上市. Hot off the heels of that successful launch (the line netted Boston Beer a cool $300 million in its inaugural year), Truly followed up with a range of iced tea 艰难的苏打水s early this year.
有这么多真正的口味和风格, the time has finally come to put one question to bed: Which among them is best? Here’s our take, and every flavor of Truly 艰难的苏打水 tasted and ranked.
这款苏打水散发出草莓和冰茶的香甜气息. The tea aromas are the more noticeable of the two, but the strawberry provides a subtle fruitiness. Then, intense sweet flavors overtake everything, causing each sip to feel a little out of balance.
21. Peach Tea
与草莓茶形成对比, 在这种表达方式中，果香引导着香气, 茶是第二位的. Once again, the flavor profile skews noticeably sweet and may have you craving more acidity to balance things out.
楚利的两杯高abv " Extra "硬苏打水之一, peach and mango aromas arrive headier here than in the brand’s standard offerings. Luscious sweetness defines the palate, but does a great job of masking its boozier credentials.
There’s a nice depth to the aromas of this expression but the fruit character fails to fully capture the imagination. While the mango flavors are not quite as prominent as the sweet lemonade, 他们增加了额外的一层和一种美味的调味料.
Across all 艰难的苏打水 producers, the quality of mango flavors varies wildly. 它的服务做得很好, even if the fruit notes come across as more artificial-tasting than fresh. 有很好的平衡和清爽的结束.
而它的粉红色几乎看不出来, the familiar black cherry flavoring (a mix of almonds and medicine) is unmistakable on this seltzer’s nose. Lemon and citrus overtake those “cherry” notes on the palate — this is a good thing — and the sweetness arrives at just the right pitch.
The fruit character shines brighter here than on the 额外的桃子芒果. The raspberry notes lean tart on the nose but arrive sweet and juicy on the palate. The rich sweetness won’t be for everyone but there is a good balance between the fruit flavor and the booze.
成熟诱人的草莓香气在这个表达的香气中迸发出来. The palate is all about lemony sweetness, with just a hint of strawberry on the finish.
14. Blueberry & Acai
不仅仅是早餐碗的绝佳组合, 蓝莓和巴西莓的组合是一种很受欢迎的萨尔茨矿泉水. 而总体配置比其他Truly风格更基本, 余味还在，每一口都让人神清气爽.
微妙的覆盆子香气先于这个表达的味觉, 哪种水果味带有迷人的花香. There’s a great concentration of flavors, too, and nice weight to the texture.
12. Wild Berry
美味的浆果混合在这款苏打水里. The fruit character is not as bright or citrusy as other Truly flavors but each sip is full of flavor and delivers decent refreshment.
Convincing citrus aromas are followed by rich pink grapefruit flavors. 它比许多其他的苏打水更有深度, even if the profile is more straightforward than others in its lineup.
Lime has become a staple offering for many producers and this version from Truly is up there with the best. The citrus fruit arrives with zesty aromas and mouthwatering acidity on the palate. 这是一种干净可口的苏打水.
Our favorite among Truly’s lemonade seltzer line, the lemon notes arrive with fresh, energetic gusto. 甜味也会给口感带来丰满, which makes it great if you find normal seltzers to be slightly lacking in character.
8. Lemon Tea
Lemon also proves to be a winner when it comes to Truly’s Iced Tea seltzers, 尽管茶是整个过程的驱动力. Full-flavored sips recall iced tea with a streak of lemon, while the citrus fruit adds great balance.
This seltzer is so much fruitier on the nose than most other black cherry flavors on the market, 口感多汁，散发着柑橘和酸樱桃的清香. Only on the finish is there a hint of almond essence notes, but we’re not mad at them.
Admittedly, this flavor recalls tinned pineapple chunks rather than just-sliced fruit, 但它确实很好吃. 最后还有一丝椰子和香草的味道, though that may be our imagination and one too many Piña Coladas over the years speaking.
有时候你想要一杯加柠檬的伏特加苏打水. Sometimes you don’t even want to make that drink and it makes more sense to just crack open a can. 带有活泼的香气和清新的柑橘味, Truly’s lemon 艰难的苏打水 has you covered for those occasions and beyond.
4. Watermelon & Kiwi
The devil’s in the details with this expression: The watermelon tastes more genuine than most competitors and the inclusion of kiwi rounds out the profile wonderfully. 这款酒干净果香，适合夏天饮用.
Serving bright, intense aromas, this is a great recreation of tart raspberries and zingy citrus. There’s more depth to the flavor than expected but it remains refreshing and very easygoing. 结尾处几乎是花香，这是一个可爱的惊喜.
This seltzer’s aromas are vibrant and fresh, and recall both freshly squeezed juice and orange peel. 每一大口都是清淡清爽的, and never makes you crave extra sweetness even though the profile is bone dry.
(Truly recently replaced its Orange seltzer with a new flavor: Citrus Squeeze. We will update this ranking when we’ve had a chance to taste it and see how it compares.)
即使有迷人的热带水果香气, the layers and nuance served on the palate arrive as a really welcome surprise. 像真正的菠萝, 香草和烤椰子的味道, 而且非常有果味, 热带完成.
