I expected a nutty milk flavor. It did have the taste, but more subtle than I expected. The nut smell was very strong however. It is a smooth liquid just a bit darker than milk. It seemed very refreshing for some reason. I did like the drink, but, again, the flavor was not exactly as I had expected. My seven year old son absolutely loved it, once he got past the smell. He said it smelled like coffee and that threw him for a few. At $4 per bottle, it is a bit more expensive than regular milk. I don't know that I will buy it regularly but if I can find a sale or a coupon, I will pick up a bottle for my son. If you like other nut flavored drinks, I would definitely recommend that you try the Nutchello.
