Non-alcoholic Champagne Comparisons

Ok, I've now had occasion to try two different varieties of non-alcoholic champagne and they are NOT created equal. My reviews:

Ariel Non Alcoholic Brut Cuvee: By itself this is basically undrinkable. It's thick and syrupy, which is not a desirable quality in champagne. It is overly sweet and has an unappealing artificial after taste. Fortunately for me, I put this champagne in a mimosa and it wasn't awful, but I was heavy handed with the orange juice. It did make it sparkling, but that's the best I can say for it.

Fre Non Alcoholic Brut: This was delicious by itself. I had several other people try it and the consensus was that it really did taste like a light and fruity sparkling wine. It was wonderful and refreshing. It had notes of pear and apple without being overwhelmingly fruit juice like the way the Fre Merlot was. I drank most of a bottle myself over 6 hours.
