I make no apologies for liking the Mike’s Harder line of malt beverages. High alcohol content and no where near as sweet as other brands, they make for what I call a “get the party started” drink. I will often take one to a friend’s house and drink it before imbibing on any other adult beverages to give me that buzz right up front and even helps reduce how much I drink throughout the rest of the day/night.
This particular flavor mixes a form of Passionfruit with lemonade, which is actually a good mix and not as sweet as I was expecting. Plus at 8% ABV, it’s got that nice addition of extra alcohol over standard grocery store brands. Given that last caveat, these are not sold in grocery stores here in Utah, so I have to obtain them at the State Liquor Store, where they are stored warm and not ready to drink. And at $3 each, they are a good $1 more than the ones I find in Nevada or Idaho.
I’ve reviewed some of the other flavors of the Mike’s Harder brand malt beverages:

Mike’s Harder Limeade
Mike’s Harder Blueberry Lemonade
Mike’s Harder Black Cherry Lemonade
Mike’s Harder Strawberry Lemonade
