- The Ingredients:
- Carbonated water, evaporated cane juice, caramel color, natural
flavors, natural maple flavor, phosphoric acid, extract of chicory
root, birch bark, vanilla bean and juniper berries
- The box:
- n/a but coming soon
- Dark, headless. Lightly carbonated. My first
impression was "mmm, minty goodness" as I thought I detected
a strong wintergreen note. I'm not so sure it's wintergreen, though
it is a definite possibility. Despite the fact their pitch sounds
a lot like Journey's, this root beer is
actually drinkable. The "cane juice" is evident, as is the
vanilla (adds a little creaminess). Thank God I couldn't taste the
juniper berries - I hate that flavor more than wintergreen (so I avoid
things like gin, Zima, juniper bushes). After deeply inhaling the
smell of the brew for a few minutes I became dizzy from hyperventilation.
I also can almost figure out what I am smelling...it smells like a
hint of molasses and wood. Go figure. Maybe I'm smelling the maple.
Anyway, it's not an offensive drink except I find it a bit acidic
for my tastes, which surprises me because I was sure there was a link
between phosphoric acid and a good head. Fairly mild. Taste is too
rootbeer-candy-like though.. Survey says...a C-.
