I found this drink after finishing a very tough 8 days of work, so I thought it was perfect timing! However, I was a little disappointed. I took a sip wondering, what does a WHITE raspberry taste like? I don't think they exist! As far as taste, it's like a very subtle raspberry flavor and it isn't over-powering or giving off a strong artificial taste--it was enjoyable. But as far as carbonation goes it tasted like a soda that I let sit out all day long. It just had that weakness as though the carbonation was slowly going away. And did I feel stress-free? Honestly, it's debatable because I was already planning to let go of my worries that day anyway. Truthfully, I can see some placebo affect at play here. Just KNOWING that this drink is meant to calm you helps. But sometimes that is exactly what people need! Overall, it's an enjoyable beverage but I'm not sure about if it truly succeeds at its' purpose.
