The Fifty Best Hard Seltzer Tasting

 


The Tasting: The Fifty Best held a "blind" tasting of hard seltzers with ten members of our spirits judging panel. The order of service was established beforehand by lottery. Strict tasting rules were applied. Each of the hard seltzers were poured into fresh glasses from new sealed cans, and served well-chilled. The judges wrote down their impressions of each product on score sheets. Gold and Silver medals are awarded according to a set range of final point scores received from the judges. There were no Double-Gold or Bronze medals awarded for this tasting. The tasting notes that follow are summaries of the judges’ opinions, with all replicated commentary eliminated. The ABVs are identified for each brand.
