Dust Cutter Lemonade is a sugar sweetened beverage that delivers classic lemonade flavor along with B vitamins and ginseng. From a flavor perspective, it’s definitely tasty, with sugar providing a sweet backdrop. The lemon flavor is sharp, flavorful and clean, which is definitely helped by the fact that they didn’t add any filler juice to this product. Otherwise, we appreciate that the company didn’t go overboard with the sweetness -- it’s spot on. On the nutritional front, we have a hard time believing that the ginseng and B vitamins will mean a whole heck of a lot to consumers. However, we are slightly concerned with the product having 160 calories per 16 oz. bottle (or 80 per 8 oz. serving) -- cutting the calories would definitely help it. Visually, the product is clean and polished, with one of the better-looking uses of an aluminum bottle that we’ve seen. It gives the product a rugged but retro feeling, which fits nicely with the Dust Cutter brand. All in all, the packaging is attractive and definitely feels like something that’s going to contain a great tasting beverage inside. Overall, a nicely-executed and enjoyable lemonade product that definitely seems like it has mainstream potential.
