i change my mind each time i take a swig of this brew. i like it, then i don’t. the honey is subtle, perhaps a bit too much so, if you are going to put it in, Dr Tima’s and Thomas Kemper do it better. but i do enjoy this drink. as i approach the bottom of the bottle, i like it even more. maybe the vanilla and honey are at the bottom or maybe it is just kicking my taste buds into gear.

Just an fyi, it's SonoraN. 😉

They must have changed the recipe along with the name in the past ten years, because the honey is overpowering in the bottle I drank… cola'ish and nasty, blech.

Matthew- They did indeed change the name, when i reviewed it there was no 'N'. now there is. but i left it as it was. perhaps i will get another bottle and see if it tastes drastically different now too.

Found a bottle of this at Pop's, which has unfortunately closed. LOVED it. Now I need to find another store that carries this.

I found this at AJ's, which is a Phoenix and surrounding areas fancy-pants store. I find it funny that the only thing on the label that changed was adding an n to the name. You'll probably not change your mind about the taste, because my impression was almost the same as yours. I find it a little too sweet, and then I taste something else the next time. All while drinking the one big bottle. It's good, but a little too much like the stuff you find everywhere in cans.

I love this one. It's especially good in a float. Local restaurant Stockyards has it on tap; very delicious that way.
