The Original variety of Aloe Very is a USDA Organic aloe vera drink that has 60 calories per bottle and is fortified with B vitamins. Like many other aloe vera beverages, this one combines aloe vera juice and grape juice, which provides the majority of the flavor in the product. There’s no pulp in this one, although you can’t tell since the company fully wrapped the bottle, while the use a sugar, honey, and stevia blend does a nice job of providing clean and enjoyable sweetness to the product. While the aloe and grape flavor is pleasant, it’s more or less on par with what you’ll find in other aloe vera beverages. However, one thing that’s missing -- and we mean in a good way -- is the thick and borderline gummy body that you’ll find in imported aloe vera drinks. This one drinks more like a sports drink, which is definitely a nice change of pace. Packaging is a 16 oz. bottle that, as we mentioned before, is fully wrapped. What Aloe Very has created is a nice start, but the images in the background feel somewhat generic. Furthermore, we don’t like how the logo falls on the ribs of the bottle -- it definitely doesn't help the branding. Overall, we’d certainly drink this product for its flavor and low-calorie profile, but the branding could definitely be enhanced.
