KonaRed Hawaiian Coffeeberry

I know I am classifying this under "coffee", but this is not coffee. If you read the label, you will notice that it clearly says that no coffee beans are present in this beverage. What this is made of is the fruit that surrounds the Kona coffee bean. That's right, the fleshy part around the bean...along with some other stuff. Though there is some naturally occurring caffeine (around 54 mg), the goal of this drink is to not jazz/jack you up in the traditional sense.

OK, so if this isn't coffee, then what is it and what does it taste like? Well, it smells like a combination of cranberries, pineapple and apple juice, but it tastes like blend of apple, pineapple and something like a cranberry. That must be what the fleshy part of the coffee bean tastes like. It is just a little tart, like several levels below that of cranberries, and there is some light natural bitterness, and damn is it good. Yeah, so good I could barely stop myself from drinking the whole bottle at once. The apple and pineapple provide just enough sweetness to compliment the flavor of the fleshy part without stealing anything away from it. Damn, it is good. Buy it.

Taste - 9.5/10...very unique and tasty
