The opinions expressed in these reviews are soley those of their author.
Labeling is "average", nothing particularly eye catching, but then one cannot judge a sauce by its label. Hence, the label is really insignificant in the whole scheme of things.
Colour is quite proper for a jalapeño sauce, green and a natural one at that, meaning nothing artificial to alter the hue. The consistency is neither too viscous nor too watery, simply perfect.
The smell bespeaks a trifling amount of vinegar, but in no event akin to the harsh experience one has opening a bottle of Tabasco (r). There is likewise a rather smooth melding of garlic and cilantro, quite pleasant.
The taste is simply superb. Wegman's Organic Salsa Verde Hot Sauce is the closest thing to a fresh, homemade salsa verde I have had in some time, no small achievement for a bottled sauce from a major grocery store chain. It even brings back memories of my earliest memory having hot sauce in my grandmother's kitchen in Satelite, a suburb of Mexico City, some 32 years ago.
For me, the burn is perfect, because it is rather minor ( a medical condition prevents me from having anything with habanero in any significant amount). Still, I rate it a 4 since I am well aware this sauce will be too mild for some.
Spot on, really. This is my second favourite hot sauce off all time, and I've been eating hot sauce nearly my entire life.
