so i am not sure if this replaces the vile and awful Borealis Birch since i have not seen that atrocity on store shelves in a long while or if it is yet another addition to the growing and disappearing line of Journey drinks. actually besides this and the root beer, i no longer see any other Journey beverages these days. for some of them, that is a shame as they seemed to be getting some stuff right, for others, it is a reason to rejoice.
so let me pop this one open and try it! wow, that taste like anise! that is not usually a direction that birch beers take, strange. i would actually be hard pressed to find any birch flavor here at all. i don’t hate the drink but i don’t terribly love liquorice. right now, i am kind of in the mood for some so this is good but other times i am sure i would really not be into it. if you like black liquorice, this is the drink for you. i find it weird that they can’t list just what “cane sweeteners” are in here. although, are there any sweeteners beside sugar that come in the form of a cane? i don’t know of any but i am not a sweetener-ologist at all. and just where does the fructose come from? curious, very curious Journey. well, you have put out a good beverage with very nice packaging, so keep it up.
