It had a lot of issues, namely the aromatics of Diesel (non-mosel) and other flaws. It had a salty taste and limited palate. It also finished quite bitter. Unfortunately, i have 2 left. I know it was a deal, but this one will not be on my re-buy list.
Funny that I revisited this thread today and saw this. I am drinking it now. After opening it was less than pleasing. I poured the glass and drank it at 52 degrees. It was too cold to get any real flavors from. I got some spices, but very little and a lot of bitterness from. I decided to let it warm slightly. I got slightly more fruity flavors and some more spiciness, but still got the harsh bitterness on the tail end.
This struck me as odd as I LOVE Meekers other juice.
