Just like you, but different
There are 4 varieties, I chose #2 and #3, then brought the #1 and #4, so the review order has nothing to do with the variety order, just to be awkward.
This is the 4th of 4 reviews.
330ml bottle of a Soda, made in New Zealand, 281Kj or about 67 calories in this bottle. 16.2g of sugars. Bottle = 1 Serving. That amount of sugars is about 18% of the recommended daily intake
I was asked to point out that this is significantly less than the sugar content in a can of Coke for instance, significantly being half.
Hӧpt is made by Lion Dairy & Drinks (NZ) Ltd, and Lion make beers and dairy and all sorts.
Hӧpt sodas are unique fusions of hop extracts with flavours like lychee, pear, watermelon, elderberry, basil, mint, lemongrass and limeflower, and much less sugar*. Select hops such as the fragrant Columbus, Tomohawk and Zeus varieties are harvested to create Hӧpt. Their unique characteristics make our sodas crisp and refreshing.
This blend of lemongrass and limeflower extracts with elderberry juice and real hop extracts is crisp, complex and herbaceous.
Tangy bitterness at the front but it’s understated and it finishes sweet.
Same refreshing delivery, looks a lot nicer than the clear varieties.
This is the nicest of the 4, in my opinion. Much more taste and more tastes, I like the bitterness and didn’t find to overly sweet. Saved the best till last.
According to the ingredients list, a whopping 0.02% of hop extracts. So roughly 0.066 of this drink is relevant to hops. But a bunch of other assorted things at the same concentrate., like Limeflower and Lemongrass.
The pdubyah-o-meter on Sodas then. This is nice at 8.5 which is good on the scale of things.
