Fentimans Rose Lemonade

I have been keeping an eye out for Fentiman’s Rose Lemonade ever since it was released last year, and I am happy to finally be able to talk about it on Drinkable Review. Fentiman’s products are notoriously difficult to find in my area (although that is becoming less and less true as time goes on), and while that means that I usually have to wait for a while before I eventually stumble across the newer products, it also means that finding each one of those drinks is like discovering a rare treasure. And the rose lemonade was definitely worth the wait.
Let’s just go ahead and put it out there: I really like this one. I love rose flavored beverages, and Fentimans has really made a good one here. First off, the lemonade itself is very good, with just the right amount of carbonation and a very natural and sour lemon taste. The rose extract is also very well balanced, as the drink contains just enough to be present and effective in the drink without taking over (something that rose tends to do very easily). The aromatic taste of the rose combines very well with the tartness of the lemon, and Fentimans' natural and botanical brewing process (along with the slight hint of fermentation in the background) really lends itself well to the flavor of the drink.

If you're not a big fan of really sour, natural lemonades, then this one may not be for you, and the rose flavoring may not be for everybody. I, however, think that this is an excellent product, and I give it a high recommendation for those with a more venturous beverage attitude.

Verdict: Highly recommended
