Rieme Traditional Sparkling Limonade

There has always been something fascinating to me about colorless beverages. I'm certainly not opposed to coloring (imagine how boring a grocery store aisle full of completely clear drinks would be), but there is just something strange and other-worldly about a colorless liquid with the flavor of something that is otherwise very colorful. It is especially strange when it comes in a glass bottle; perhaps simply because it is so rare in our modern market of plastic and food coloring. But regardless of the reason, I knew upon first sight of Rieme's Limonade that I would be leaving the store with one.

Rieme is a line of all-natural, French sodas and lemonades. The traditional limonade is a very simple, carbonated lemonade that has a light and pleasantly sweet taste. The lemon flavor is very natural, and is more of an aromatic taste that settles on the back of the throat, rather than on the tongue like a more typical lemon taste. As a result of this, the flavor is not terribly sour, but it still registers in the mind as very "lemony," despite the lack of bite. The level of sweetness is also just right, as it is noticeably sweet without being heavy or thick. In fact, Rieme's Limonade might be one of the most refreshing lemonades that I have had in quite some time. It's crisp, natural, and very easy to drink, and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for Rieme's other flavors in the future.
