From our perspective, the Cucumber + Mint variety of ‘tude is the star of the lineup. For starters, it tastes the least like apple juice of all the flavors that we sampled. Instead, it’s true to its name and has very nice cucumber and mint flavors. Yes, there’s still a backdrop of apple juice, but the mellow and, more importantly, not sweet flavor of the cucumber thins it out. It does this in both flavor and sugar content, which is less than the other varieties. And while we know that this is an apple juice line, we can’t help but wish that there was more cucumber and mint flavor and less apple (the name ‘tude could be applied to things that aren’t apple -- just saying). On the packaging front, we definitely like the smaller 12 oz. format that the company has chosen for this line. It definitely makes it much easier to consume the whole product and it presents itself nicely on the visual end. The label is clean and appealing, although we do think that it would be easy to glance over the words “apple juice” that’s on the front of the label. Overall, this is an enjoyable and refreshing product, and we’re glad to see that 'tude is becoming comfortable with more unique flavors.
