Some folks have said it is bitter. I mix it with green tea & a sweet drink and it is fine.

Top Notch Product
Aloe Vera is a "great" product and we sent this as a gift to a close friend. We have used Aloe Vera for many years with much success!

A great help to me.
This does the job for which I purchased it. However the taste is not pleasant at all, but due to the difference in the price of this and the one I have tried I can take the bitter taste.

This product is a great way to add aloe into your diet. We drink it with grape juice and added it to our smoothies.

This is awful tasting stuff. I'll stick to George's Aloe, it works great and has no taste. They use a special distilling process to take the bitterness of the aloe out. This is the first Swanson product that I actually disliked. Thanks for all your other products Swanson, but this one is just plain bad.

Great product for Great price
So glad to find this product on your web sight for such a GREAT price. The health food stores around town charge twice as much for half the product. Thank you so much!

After eating greasy or spicy food, this is what my family reaches for to sooth our stomachs.

I could not drink this product, my daughter buys from a difference maker and her Aloe Vera Juice
is tasteless, this product has a horrid taste and I cannot continue it, I feel it was a waste of money because of the horrid taste.

I've purchased other brands of Aloe Vera Juice. None of them have a pleasant taste, but the Swanson brand is very bitter. Taste like ground up aspirin diluted in water.
This is the first item I've purchased from Swanson that I didn't like.

The product seems to have a salty taste to it. Aloe Vera Juice in this form should not have any taste at all.

Not one of MY Swanson favorites, BUT....
for those that aren't familiar with Aloe Vera gel or don't want the hassle of diluting the gel, this is a simple alternative. Personally, i prefer a more concentrated Aloe and to dilute it myself if needed. This doesn't give you the option. None the less, it does work if you plan on ingesting it. You may simply have to take more of what you are used to in order to achieve the same goals if you've been using a higher concentrated form of Aloe.

I have tried different Aloe Vera Juices. This one feels too diluted, watery.
I am always happy with Swanson products, but not with this one.

When I've bought Aloe Vera before, it was a gel. I much prefer a more liquid product, which this is. It soothes my stomach and helps regulate me, so I'm very happy with my purchase.

No Aloe Vera just Water
I am not pleased with this product.
It tasted like Water & Citric Acid and
nothing else. The 1 Gallon size is
the only one I had problems with.
I will not buy this product in the 1
gallon size again.

This is an excellent product. Simply put it is the actual aloe vera Gel which they sell here for $3.99 a bottle combined with water to make it more of a juice. Now I see alot of people complaining. But as of yet I have not seen one Alchohol and/or Sugar free aloe vera juice widely available. Doubt me. Go check those others. almost all from the cheapest to the most expensive contain Sugar and/or Alcohol in addition to the Aloe Vera (and in 90% of the cases water).
Now If you want gel go buy the 3.99 bottle (which is also Alcohol and Sugar free). This is still the best deal overall.

Super! Super Product!
This is one of my favorite supplements ordered. It simply is so easy to use. It's a liquid and the taste is actually quite refreshing over ice just like the bottle says. At first I would add it to whatever juice or water I was drinking to get it in. But one day I tried it by itself over ice and I was so pleasantly surprised, now I will drink it from time to time by itself over ice on purpose! It really makes me feel better, and it tase quite good. I lvoe the value for the money, the bottle seems to last forever unless you have family that also begs to try it again and again. Some of the family are now customers because of this product, and also some of my friends are customers now as well.

Great Multipurpose Product
Swanson's aloe vera product has the best taste of any I have tried. In addition to taste, my seems to better hydrated using this product.

I'd never had aloe juice prior to this supplement. It is very zippy and tastes good in anything. A little awkward to pour just one ounce from a gallon jug, so we put it into a smaller container for daily use.

This aloe juice tastes great
I love the taste of this aloe juice. It is a great value and tastes great too!!!

This product has so little aloe that it seemed more like water. Previous purchase of aloe juice from another vendor was more expensive but thicker and more effective. I would not purchase again.

I drink 4 oz. of Swansons Aleo Vera juice every day. It tastes great cold. It soothes my stomach. Makes me feel good.

I have always puchased aloe fom the health food store and you know it is aloe from the taste no water added. I found I don't get the results from this product. I would like to get a product that isn't watered down, I checked the other products but all have water added which I can do myself if desired, I prefer it straight and would purchase the product if it was that way but I won't purchase this product againJust a personal preferance..

Better tasting than health food stores products.
Swanson aloe tastes better and makes me feel better after my morning dose. I used to mix it with apple juice but now do 2 ounces straight.

I enjoyed the value of this product & that there aren't unnatural things put in it. Also where I am from they put sugars in aloe vera juice & I guess that doesn't suit me. I must say that it doesn't taste very good on it's own. There is citric acid & potassium sorbate in it which give it a slightly sour taste. But I would recommend this product just because of it's value & suggest you stir it in with some other beverage.
