Finally! I received a shipment of samples from the company and WOW! The Kiwi Lemon-Lime is great. I even like the wide mouth plastic bottle (please forgive my indiscretion SS) although the label is pathetic looking.
I tend to like the less sweet beverages like Mad River and Honest Tea so I am always looking for something low-cal. Anyone else tried it?
It's been a while since you posted this and I'm curious:
1. Are you still impressed with AS?
2. Do you sell AS?
3. If yes, how are sales going? Do you think they are around for the long haul?
4. What is the consumer impression of aloe as an ingredient?
I am considering distributing the brand and thought I'd get the benefit of your 9 months of knowledge.

1) Yes I am still impressed with AS.
2) No I do not distribute it.
3) My perception of the general consumer is that aloe is well recognized but maybe "quirky" in a beverage. The healthy/natural foods consumer however is very receptive to aloe in drinks.
From what I've seen the SoCal market may be a good place to give AS a run. Do you know any distributors that are selling AS?
Current dists are Lenore, Mission, Basso, Larrabee, Prestige, and a mix of smaller dists.
Product is definitely interesting. Tastes great, but aloe as a beverage ingredient has some perceptual hurdles to overcome.
