Got a few of these, as I assumed it would taste like cherry, or something close to cherry. At first sip, you immediately smell a fruit punch scent. Not off putting at all, so you go in for a large gulp. Your first taste a watered down, artificial cherry flavor. Similar to cherry flavored cough syrup. As soon as you swallow, the aftertaste kicks in. I rancid, mildewy, fruity jumble of nasty. I don't know if I got ahold of a bad batch, because the expiration date isn't for a year, but there is something really not right with this drink. I DO NOT reccomend.
