UPDATE: I changed my review from 1 to 4 stars, given the following:
after adding a teaspoon per gallon into my Vintner's Best blueberry wine that needed a little something, I was initially worried. The cotton candy smell was intense and I really didn't think the blueberry flavor would ever show up. Well, after a few weeks I have discovered that this mates perfectly with this cheap wine kit:
5 gallon batch
2 cups sugar dissolved in 1 cup finished wine
5 teaspoons blueberry extract
set it in fridge.

NOW, here is what you must do. Aerate it before you drink it. toss it in a blender then refill your wine bottle. Viola! Incredible!

still not an A+ product, but a solid 4/5 I think after further examination.

So I've seen a lot of very,very, negative reviews, almost downright hostile.
this review is going to be negative but it there's just no reason to get so angry at getting a product and not having it meet your expectations.

I ordered mango grapefruit and blueberry. TTB. These are two flavor alcoholic drinks I'm making from hard seltzers and a blueberry wine because I did not like the way the vintner's best blueberry wine turned out.

First the mango is actually pretty decent not great but the closest to actually smelling like what they claim and it tastes pretty good. For the money if you plan on doing a lot of small mango additions as a secondary flavor to another beverage, I think it's worth the money.

The smell of the grapefruit although I've not used it yet, smells more like citrus than actual grapefruit.
I'll be putting that in my next batch of hard Seltzer to see how that turns out so I can't call it one way or the other but it does smell kind of sort of like grapefruit.

As for the blueberry, this stuff was so pungent it smelled like cotton candy through the box that I came through in Amazon. When I opened it it actually has a smell more like cleaning solvents than actual blueberry. This does not in any way smell like blueberry, and my nose is highly tuned for this sort of stuff so I can attest that it factually does not smell anything like blueberry. The taste isn't much like blueberry either but more like a fake candy blueberry-esque flavor.

I'm certainly disappointed as maybe I should have done some research but I trusted YouTube guy that I like and he's seem to think that the Cherry was pretty good. We'll have to see how it melds with the wine after it sits for a week I was hoping for a little more blueberry presentation.

I hope this is helpful, I think all of nation is trying to put out something decent for a cheap price and I can't really fault them on that.
I assume if you want something more authentic you're going to be paying three to four times as much.
