Made with a 100 percent organic blend of water, lemons, agave, and ginger, this product is a very fresh and wholesome-tasting product. Using high pressure processing instead of pasteurization, Genesis Organic is able to leave the flavors as close to the raw ingredients as possible. As far as the taste goes, this product has a very tart lemon flavor, a hit of sweetness, and a pretty heavy dose of gingery spice. That said, this product is definitely more of a spicy lemonade than the refreshing summertime classic that lemonade typically is. You’ll definitely have to sip this one slowly. Visually, the 12 oz. slim PETE bottle is a fine container, but the product’s label is at odds with what’s inside the bottle. Specifically, the container looks more like a functional product than the refreshment beverage that it ultimately is. Having the words “active enzymes” doesn’t help, especially since it is never explained or mentioned anywhere else on the label or the company’s website. Focusing on making something that is appealing to the senses and whets the appetite would help. Overall, what’s inside the bottle is amazing. We just wish that the packaging lived up to the same standard.
