What people on Reddit say about Kirkland Hard Seltzer

The Good

So far these are my favorite brand of hard seltzers. They don’t taste funny or have a weird aftertaste. They also don’t give me a headache after drinking one or two.


It’s no worse tasting than any other brand. The price per can makes it a good deal.


They taste better than trulys!


The Bad

Not a lot of flavor from what I remember. They’re so so.


Not as flavorful as competition


It’s not bad, not great either. Just meh. It’s like club soda with a little taste of alcohol and faint taste of whatever fruit flavoring it’s supposed to be.
