Sweet & sour cactus fruit with a hit of aloe-vera in the background. Brilliant together with banana. Very refreshing and relaxing. Undiluted concentrated flavoring by Inawera (INW).

This is concentrated flavoring and must be diluted before use!

    Not so juicy

    Posted by Christopher Marshall on 18th Jun 2017

    Tried 0.5% in a blueberry custard (5 drops in 50 ml) and after a week I get floral notes. It does remind me of a succulent like a cactus or aloe. I'm going to try it with some kiwi and coconut as it would seem a good possibility for enhancing and rounding out tropical flavors. Not recommended for fruity custards.

    Tastes just like prickly pear

    Tastes just like the real thing, kind of like dragon fruit without the creamy note. At 1% it is smooth, and at 2% it is a little harsh. It is very fruity and tasty. It goes great with Inawera Cherries.

    Tastes like Aloe drink

    Posted by Chris on 28th Mar 2017

    Tastes like aloe by itself, but really shines with other fruit flavors. Like other INW flavors, this is strong, so use at small percentages. To make other fruit pop, we are talking around 1% or even lower. Adds a nice wet feel to your juices.

    must have

    If this isn't in your collection, buy it. Buy it now. It gives a recipe a helping hand by adding an element that works really well with most fruit flavors.

    This is an amazing flavor! It completely enhances fruits to be much juicier, and adds a bit of sweetness. Beware: if you use more than 1%, it will totally take over the recipe. It also has a slight floral quality when used more than .5%. Overall: a very unique and tasty flavor.

    Stellar Additive/Enhancer

    Posted by JK on 9th Mar 2017

    After struggling to get the vibrancy I was looking for in my melon mixes this made all the difference. It is a strange flavor by itself but has a lot of depth, natural sweetness and juiciness. When mixed at a low percentage .1/2-1 1/2% with melons it makes an otherwise flat mix pop-adding a lot of vibrancy and a juicy mouth feel that draws you back to it. It can certainly play with other fruits but it does have some earthy notes that may not pair well with things like strawberry. It is a powerful tool to have in your box of tricks.

    I kept seeing this in various recipes and read the reviews. This was my first flavor from INW and wow. It is potent and can easily over take any other flavor. It is a very nice back ground for fruit flavors and it makes them pop. I put this in my ADV and it made it better. Cactus, FA Kiwi, FA forest fruit. I'm addicted.

    This actually tastes like the green/plain flavored aloe vera drinks to me, which is awesome! never had cactus/cactus water in my life

    Not a favorite

    Posted by JoanJ on 15th Jul 2015

    Mixed according to recommendations and wasn't overpowering but just nothing I really liked as a single flavor. Had a grassy, green taste to me and a slight tartness I just didn't like. That being said, everyone has different tastes and it seems this is one that others rave about and the reason I tried it but it just isn't for me.
