Champagne DIY Flavor Notes:
WF Champagne Soda:
Not supposed to be champagne. Based on a soda. WF CS tastes exactly like baby powder. Even has the powdery texture. Smells like bubblegum in the bottle.
Tested at 1%, 1.5%
INW Sparkling Wine:
Mostly tastes like champagne, a little bubbly, slightly boozy. But strong bubblegum off note. Too bright, lacks depth. At 3% boozy-ness was a bit rhubarb-ish and almost a little camphorous.
Emily tested at 2%. ID10-T tested at 1% and 3%
Not a very good champagne. More of white grape juice flavour. Not fizzy. Not very sweet. A little fermented in a yeasty way if % pushed up. Not very bold.
FA Wine Champagne (White Sparkling Wine):
Not that flavourful. Not at all fizzy. More like white wine than champagne. Too fermented to be white grape juice. Sweet. Emily and Concrete thought it was underwhelming.
At 2% fairly soft. At 3% rotten grapes.
FW Pink Champagne:
Tastes very pink. Cavity inducingly sweet. Has some powdery-ness, like a nod to effervescence. Not really boozy. Like flat, non alcoholic sparkling white grape juice, only pink.
LA Sparkling Wine:
Pretty sweet. Has a bit of a mineral taste that kind of mimics fizzy-ness. Not really boozy, but fermented enough that it is definitely a champagne. Deep, full bodied.
FLV Morning Mimosa:
A really good flavour. But a bit prison wine-ish. Has a deep, mild funkiness about it. Identifiable as champagne. Decent bubble-ish effect, some zesty citrus up front. Orange note is really good.
If used too high that funk tends to dominate a mix.
VT Blood Orange Champagne:
Really accurate champagne. Orange is Kool-Aid-ish. It’s artificial and a bit cheap tasting. Orange also limits versatility. But really tasty and really good as a SF. Very robust. Has a great fizz.
Can use it at 6-7% as a SF. Effective down around 2%.
FLV Brut Bubble Wine:
Excellent sparkling wine flavour. Tastes a bit like FLV Morning Mimosa, but not quite so funky. It’s also more crisp and effervescent. A little boozy. Has a bit of an apple note.
At 3% and above gets bubblegum-y. 1% is effective.
DIY or DIE Sang Petillant (one shot):
Delicious, relaxing flavour. Like a citrus blend mimosa that’s mostly natural blood orange juice with a splash of white grapefruit. Quite a lot of brighter, nicely bitter white grapefruit.
