W Zero Cocktail is Asahi’s new line of 0 calorie, 0 alcohol chuuhai which attempt to taste like cocktails, though this attempts to taste like Chardonnay white wine. It does so… poorly. I don’t exactly hate this beverage, but in trying to describe its flavor, the term “Fanta Wine” immediately pops into mind. It’s too sweet and tangy with artificial flavoring emulating a cheap bottle of white wine. These are not good qualities. Chardonnay white wine is too complex (and good) to be copied with artificial flavor enhancers. Sickly sweet cocktails (like cassis orange) and disgustingly bitter (gin and tonic) are best suited for these lines of fake cocktail taste RTDs.
