This is kinda a weird combo, but not in a totally unwelcome way (like chocolate and peanut butter.) I like umeshu, and I’m okay with calpis. The soda water here lessen the impact of the umeshu and gives the drink a good balance, so that it tastes like calpis with plum flavoring. The sickly sweet aftertaste of umeshu is absent here. I might drink this again, but honestly this is an elusive chuuhai. I have only seen it sold at one store.
