Black Cherry

I’m going to start our list off with a controversial opinion: black cherry is one of High Noon’s best flavors. Almost every seltzer on the market has a black cherry variation, which is an interesting given that many of these artificial cherry flavors are perceptively unpopular. The reason many black cherry or cherry-flavored drinks don’t typically rank high is that cherry flavoring often comes across as tasting like medicine. And to an extent, I agree with that. It’s a flavor that doesn’t sit well with everyone. However, I happen to think that High Noon does a great job nailing the infamous black cherry flavor. It’s a little sweeter than some of the others, which might not be your cup of tea, but it pulls off the cherry taste nicely with a touch of acidity that some people love. Plus, it’s one of the original High Noon flavors, giving it a special place in my heart. 


Lime

Lime is a classic flavor, likely because it’s attractive to the tastebuds, and it goes with almost anything. Lime was one of High Noon’s original flavors, and you can find this fruit among the other top dogs in the seltzer business. I thoroughly enjoy lime High Noons because they mimic the flavor of the classic vodka soda with lime. If you like this simple vodka cocktail, you’ll like this High Noon. It’s refreshing, tangy, and citrusy without being too over to the top. The fact that it’s made with real lime juice helped High Noon nail this flavor. That’s good news for the brand, considering other seltzers have tried and failed to replicate a juicy lime taste. 


Grapefruit

The classic greyhound cocktail will always be in demand. There’s something about vodka and grapefruit juice that never goes out of style. And now there’s good news for anyone who wants something similar but a little lighter. High Noon’s grapefruit flavor emulates the greyhound cocktail, replacing it with a bubbly alternative. In my humble opinion, High Noon does a masterful job capturing the tart, tangy taste of grapefruit using real juice. The grapefruit flavor is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to get that alcohol aftertaste. Plus, citrus is always in style for the summer. Grapefruit High Noon keeps things light, refreshing, fruity, and just a little bit tart.

Peach

When it comes to alcohol, peach flavors can be all over the place. Some aren’t strong enough, others are too strong, and some taste like a sugar peach ring candy. I don’t know how they did it, but High Noon’s peach flavor lands somewhere perfectly in the middle of all that peachy chaos. It seems to have just the right amount of sweetness, like taking that first bite of a ripe, juicy peach. If you like peaches or peach flavors even a little bit, you will love the peach High Noon. It has a lovely, smooth taste and mixes with vodka superbly.  


Mango

Mango is one of those fruit flavors that you’re either obsessed with or can’t stand. I love that High Noon incorporated a mango flavor to compete with White Claw’s mango seltzer. The flavor captures the mango essence, even if it’s not the same as the real thing. If mango is available, I’ll reach for it. However, it wouldn’t be my first choice if I had another option.


Passionfruit

I need to get one thing out of the way before we dive into the specifics: I’m passionate about passionfruit. There – I said it! I love a quality passionfruit flavor, so I was very excited when I learned that High Noon was releasing its version of the passionfruit seltzer. While plenty of seltzers tend to over-flavor and over-sweeten their drinks, I think High Noon does a great job balancing this particular one. It’s fruity and sweet, but it also has a bit of sourness to it that ensures the sweetness doesn’t overwhelm the drink. It’s an overtly tropical option that makes you feel like you’re sitting on a beach somewhere. In short, passionfruit High Noons are delicious and underrated. 


Pineapple

If I had to pick only one High Noon flavor to drink for the rest of my life, it would have to be the pineapple flavor. Pineapples on their own are delicious. They’re sweet, tangy, and tropical, and they don’t taste like anything else. And pineapple is a great summertime flavor as well as a great cocktail ingredient. It doesn’t get much better. I’m not alone in this, either. The pineapple High Noon is one of the brand’s most popular flavors. It’s refreshing and hit the market as an instinct classic. 


Watermelon

Like black cherry, watermelon seems to be another alcohol flavor that’s simply hit or miss. Some people love it, while others hate it. Me? I think it’s fantastic. After all, what says summer more than fresh, cold, juicy watermelon? But because watermelons are made of mostly water, it can be a challenging flavor to reproduce. It’s a subtle flavor that often gets blown out of proportion when replicated. The watermelon flavored High Noons are refreshing and fruity with a subtle flavor that doesn’t overwhelm your taste buds. It’s like seltzer water with a whisper of melony goodness, perfectly thirst-quenching on a balmy summer day.

Guava

With the release of High Noon’s Pool Pack came the light and crisp guava flavor. Like watermelon, the guava flavor can be a tough one to nail down. The texture of real guava is very similar to watermelon. It’s very juicy and watery with a mild and slightly sweet flavor. When you try to mimic this flavor in the form of a drink, it can come out as a very subtle, sometimes almost tasteless beverage. All this to say, if you’re looking for a flavor that will knock your socks off, guava might not be the one. However, I love how subtle and mild it is. It’s highly refreshing without being too sweet or too strong. 


Kiwi

Kiwis are the perfect mix of tangy, sweet, tart, and juicy. The fuzzy skin on the outside does a good job of hiding the pure goodness within. Call me crazy, but I think the kiwi High Noon couldn’t get any better if it tried. The kiwi High Noon really does taste like kiwi. It was a bold move for the company to go for this flavor, considering not many other companies have tackled it. Kiwi is normally combined with strawberry or thrown into a blend, but High Noon left it as-is. If you love kiwis, you will love this seltzer.
