Mike's 'Hard Black Cherry Lemonade' tastes like soda. I mean it, it's that sweet. I can't say I dislike it but I can't say that it jumps out at me. I would drink more of this and it's a great brew for summer. I think this stuff would get the party going but like Mike's Hard Lemonade it tastes nonalcoholic so it may get your party a little too thumping.
