Review: Wekiwa

Wekiwa is, according to the Zota web site, a cross between a grapefruit and a tangelo. While we’ve never encountered this fruit at a grocery store, in its green tea soda version, it makes for a pretty snappy but not overpowering burst of citrus that’s balanced by sweet sugar and a nice grapefruit aroma. From there, some mild carbonation keeps it dancing until a slightly saccharine aftertaste becomes an unwelcome guest at the party. For better or worse, the green tea flavor is a no-show. In terms of appearances, this stuff looks like fresh pink grapefruit juice, which is appealing, but comes in the trademarked Zota bottle complete with its amoebic green label, which isn’t. But it’s definitely worth a try as it does pass for a premium citrus soda.
