Sparkling Cloudy Lemonade by Le Marche Francais (Aldi)

This Sparkling Cloudy Lemonade by Le Marche Francais is the second of two French pro­duced soft drinks bottled in thick glass that we picked up from Aldi — the oth­er being Sparkling Pink Grapefruit.

The soft drink is a trans­lu­cent, cloudy pale yel­low col­our with a light cit­rus nose and gen­er­ous car­bon­a­tion. Served chilled, a sug­ary sweet­ness emerges ahead of a light lem­on fla­vour in the body that’s sweet but without any tart­ness or zesti­ness before reced­ing and leav­ing a sweet fin­ish. Overall, the soft drink tastes like a lem­on­ade but does not deliv­er on the intens­ity of cit­rus fla­vour that makes cloudy lem­on­ade so refresh­ing. Solo by Schweppes is a more afford­able and tasti­er alternative.

This bottle of Sparkling Cloudy Lemonade by Le Marche Francais (Aldi) con­tained 750 ml. It was bottled in France and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
