Gize's Lemon Elderflower is part of its "Mild" line, which means that the product has flavoring and a light amount of sweetener (fructose). The product is built on the same base of Canadian gold filtered mineral water, which has a very clean and smooth mineral taste to it. From there, they've added lemon and elderflower flavorings, which, unfortunately, we think that they've overdone. The flavor is very sharp and pretty much smacks you in the face. For a clear product, one that has under 30 calories, this is very unexpected — dialing it back would be a good idea. On the outside, we really like what they've done with the 20cl glass package. Both the shape of the glass container and the design of it are well executed. If we have any concerns, it's for the drink's name, which, for some reason, sounds funny when it rolls off your tongue. Overall, we like the concept and its visual execution, but we'd like a little less of the added flavoring.
