Quite good melon flavor on this. Mixes very well. OK on the rocks, not so great warm due to sweetness. Heavy on the sweetness, in line with that typical for fruity liqueurs. To make this truly great, the sweetness level should go down a bit. $25 is too much on this bottle. There are other melon offerings just as good for half the price.

A friend gave me a free bottle of it after admitting he had no idea what to do with it. I took one sip, opened a bottle of Dr. Pepper, and we all found one of our new favorite drinks. He still let me keep the bottle, but, he definitely keeps this one stocked full-time, these days. X3 Seriously, if you get this, use some Dr. Pepper. You won't believe how well the two mix. This would have a three-star rating if it weren't so astonishingly good mixed into it.

This is a fruit flavored liqueur. As such it is meant to be sweet and used primarily as a mixer. Used accordingly it merits a 4 star rating. Great melon on the nose but weak flavor compared to Dekuyper's melon schnapps.

I'm not particularly crazy about melon liqueur but this does well in a variety of tropical cocktails.

I drank a bottle in one sitting and got the worst stomach ache of my life. Taken in smaller doses though, it was pretty good.

Surprisingly it goes well with either Sprite or Coke. Melon cokes are the best.

I'm conflicted with this. Great mixer, absolutely terrible straight - too sickly sweet. Worth having a small bottle laying around the bar for experimenting or for cocktails where a bit of sweetness is required, but be careful if you're looking for something to sip on the rocks.

Sweet, sweet melon - this is a great mixer and definitely something to keep around in the bar.

Wonderful, versatile mixer. Can soften the balance of tequila and grapefruit juice, or add just the right twist to vodka and orange juice. Highly recommended to have on hand.
