Cali Sparkling Pineapple Drink
330 mL can
1.47 g sugar / oz.
I think I shouldn't drink directly from the can — you never know how this can got here, how many pest-infested warehouses it passed through. Hmm, it smells funny: salty & sour. Weird. This doesn't taste like pineapple at all, unless you count that rotten one I ened up with the last time I bought a whole pineapple and let it sit too long.
This tastes like another energy drink. Like a more palatable version of Carabao. Its salty & sour & a bit citrusy just to lift your nose above the sour & whiney aftertaste. Hmmm, the ingredients say this has malt, cereals & hops. I guess that could explain the sour taste, like a really watered down beer (it doesn't really taste anything like beer, but there's a hint of that malty sourness). But that doesn't explain why this doesn't taste anything like pineaple. What a weird soda.
The can says "A splash of tangy, sweet pineapple flavor blended with sparkling, light and bubbly soda, for a truly refreshing drink you can enjoy anytime of the day."
