Following on from their Cola, this is the Phoenix Organics Lemon Lime & Bitters. D and I have our favourite — Angostura Lemon Lime and Bitters – but we’re still interested in trying other brands in the hopes of something interesting or different and even if only to confirm our firm favourite.
The soft drink is a translucent pale pink with a lightly sweet and crisp nose and moderate carbonation. Served chilled, a sweetness that reminds of fresh apple juice comes through ahead of slight citrus notes developing in the body before a mellow bitterness reminiscent of bitters comes through in the finish, leaving no aftertaste.
Overall, this lemon lime and bitters brings a surprising sweetness but lacks that depth and complexity of flavour that makes the Lemon Lime and Bitters by Angostura our firm favourite.
This bottle of Phoenix Organics Lemon Lime & Bitters contained 330 ml. It was produced in New Zealand and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
