Three Birds Hard Seltzer Full Review


I'm going to be 100% honest, I went into my local Total Wine planning to get the most interesting seltzer I could find. Three Birds's case design didn't jump out visually, but something about it spoke to me just asking to be reviewed. Maybe it was the $13 price tag.


The Three Bird Hard Seltzer website is just like the drink: nice and simple. They solicit you to "join the flock" with their gluten-free, 5% ABV, seltzer with the natural favors of Raspberry, Mango, Lime, and Cucumber. From their site FAQ, Three Bird can be found at 200+ Total Wine stores across 24 states. If there isn't a store near you, they say you can use this to order online and have it shipped.


I drank all 4 flavors in the span of about an hour to really get the full Three Bird experience. So without further adieu, let's get into the review.


Mango

Jared - 7.8

Really good flavor. I was expecting a drop off in quality because of the price, but it tastes almost identical to mango white claw. Which is a win for me at $13/pack. Only difference is the mango is slightly sweeter, which I like. Maybe a bit less carbonated as well.


Lime

Jared - 8.0

Also impressed by lime. Super smooth mouth feel. I expected the white claw clone on this one but actually really dislike White Claw Lime - this one is way better.


Cucumber

Jared - 7.2

Wow. Actually tastes like cucumber, I don’t know why I wasn’t expecting it. Refreshing, but I'm not a huge cucumber guy. If you love cucumber this could be elite.


Raspberry

Jared - 8.4

Really nice balance between sweetness and carbonation. It’s full raspberry and tastes like it.


Takeaway

If you've read my reviews before, you'll know I usually err on the side of using more words than I need to. I was especially concise with Three Bird for 2 reasons:

  1. The flavors in the variety pack are straightforward. They all taste as advertised, with very few surprises. The predictability is a good thing, in my opinion.

  2. I gave 1 of each flavor to my colleague Matt to try, and then took the rest of the case with me and drank them all at a party over the course of a couple hours. No joke, I would take a sip of each drink for the first time. Excuse myself from whatever conversation or shenanigan I was engaged in at the moment, and write down a note for each.

While the scenario in which I wrote these reviews could be portrayed negatively, I like to think it's an asset to the people. I can confirm with 100% certainty that Three Bird Hard Seltzer is day-drink ready, and as such I fully endorse it as a budget-friendly, party-perfect beverage.
