Kinley is a carbonated water that comes in a variety of flavors. They have now added a new flavor to their "Gentle" line, which is a more mild soda-water with a very subtle flavor added to it.
The new Kinley flavor, Pear-Apple, joins the already existing Pomegranate-Berries, Peach and Lemon-Nana (mint) gentle soft-drinks. All of which are low in sugar. The Pear-Apple Kinely is enriched with honey extract and vitamin C. It has no preservatives or artificial coloring added. It's a clear drink so it didn't really need any coloring, still I'm glad they didn't add food coloring just to make it a light green pear-apple color.
Before I took my first sip I noticed a sweet pear-apple aroma. That actually enhanced this drink for me, it was not overpowering like with the Wissotzky Exotic Love Leaves Tea. The Pear-Apple taste of this soft-drink was very gentle as promised.
One friend thought it was a little too sweet, I found it appropriately sweet but it wouldn't bother me if they used even less sugar.
Our resident "bar-tender" was really excited when she tasted the this Pear-Apple Kinley. She thinks it would work very well in many creative cocktails she has up her sleeve. She plans to try some of them at her Purim celebration todayJ
Bottom Line: Although I don’t normally enjoy carbonated soft-drinks, I did find this Pear-Apple Kinely to be refreshing and enjoyable. Some may say the flavor is too subtle but for me that was a plus.
