I love my bottle. You can definitely taste the infused water without the hassle of the fruit breaking up and coming into your mouth thanks to the guard at the top of the bottle as well as the infused holder in the middle. I also love how the bottle locks making it easy for me to carry back and forth, and not have to worry about the bottle spilling. The only thing that was missing for me is my recipe book for the different infused suggestions. Other than that I love everything about my bottle and would recommend this to others.
