hhhmmm, very unique indeed. actually it tastes way more like a black cherry soda than a root beer. i am almost wondering if they put this in the right bottle. i will have to assume they did though for the sake of this review deal. sweet, fruity, yummy goodness. i like black cherry soda actually so i am not at all opposed to this drink. i wouold guess it is made with corn syrup even though no sweetener is listed. the whole ingredient list seems shady but whatever.
Ingredients:caramel color water, natural and artificial flavors, gum arabic quillaia, citric acid, and sodium benzoate

This root beer was not spectacular at all. It tasted like crayons more than anything else. Maybe it was because it was bottled by Orca Beverages, so maybe they screwed things up. Unfortunately, this root beer cannot even stand up to store brand A&W. I'd have to give this a 57.

I just tried a bottle of this, my bottle also tasted like black cherry, that was strange.

Drew Fisher Says:

Just had this one for the first time. Multi-flavored and multilayered but not blended very well, in my opinion. Nice label and story. I'm giving this one a 78: above average but not great.
