Like Fentimans' other flavors, Rose Lemonade is a lightly fermented sparkling botanical beverage that is packaged in a very attractive 9.3 oz. glass bottle. In this case, the pink liquid is sweet and tart, with a moderate amount of rose flavor to the drink. However, if you’ve never had a rose-flavored beverage, it might seem a bit overwhelming at first. From there, the drink has a pleasant lemon flavor, which is complemented nicely by the sugar and light note of fermentation. While ginger is an ingredient, we don’t really taste it, although we’d certainly like to. We’d also like this drink more if it were slightly less sweet – it leaves a sugary coating in your mouth. Packaging is very distinct and classic looking, which makes this product visually appealing and memorable. However, a better quality label might help the product look a bit more polished. Overall, an enjoyable product, although we suspect that the market for a rose flavored soda is somewhat of a niche.
