hhhhmmm, well, to begin i am shocked i have not reviewed this yet! it has been in my house for months, i certainly hope it is still good. i went on a big soda ordering kick when i added all of that Availability info and really scoured the tubes of the internet to find all i could. this one must have been somewhat overlooked in the shuffle. quite a shame indeed.
but beyond that, i am not sure how to list it. see the company is the Durango Soda Company, but the product is Zuberfizz Creamy Root Beer. i think i will keep it this way, as “Zuberfizz” and not “Durango” but whatever, you don’t care I am sure, it is my own wacky organization/database stuff that i am trying to keep in line here.
although i quite like their color scheme and overall design here, i feel the “Creamy” is a bit off, i don’t like the font, it does not seem consistent with itself. oh well.
very small foam action on this brew but a high carbonation level. i guess this soda did not go bad yet, very cool! i suppose i usually associate fizziness with foaming action but in reality they are quite seperate things. many brands add in stuff like yucca to make the foam bigger and last longer which is mainly for visual appeal. while i don’t deny that i like the visual elements of a soda, it is not the main thing. (yes, this from a fellow who just complained about the “e” in “Creamy” not being italizied enough).
the taste is decent, not remarkable. the fizz kind of overwhelms one’s mouth so the flavor sneaks past without too much of a presense as it is not so strong on its own. i am enjoying it but it is predictable. a little more subtle than others though. the cane sugar is somewhat apparent and is appreciated, by me at least. sweetness is good, creaminess is decent. i would drink it more, just probably would not mail order it
Ingredients:carbonated water, pure cane sugar, natural and artificial flavor, caramel color, gum arabic, and sodium benzoate as a preservative

Wasn't that great. Mine was more flat than fizzy. It tasted more water downed than anything else.

I really like this one, tastes like Thomas Kemper with more root beer flavor. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but they sell it at the king soopers by me, so I get it quite often.

Just another so, s, root beer. Save your money.

 
Rick B Says:

I just tried it, I felt it lived up to being creamy, but not fizzy.

This was ok, so I gave it a 65

I agree on this one. It is just a decent root beer. It has a cream soda aspect to it, yet mine did not have a lot of carbonation. The overall flavor is alright though. Not really spicy, which is a shame. It is definitely a 79.

Oh no. This was my least favorite root beer so far, overall. My bottle tasted like tobacco was an ingredient. It was like there was some superfluous, disagreeable element in the recipe. I chalked it up to some chemist's objective of making a soda "creamy." I am not sure if the word has import beyond marketing, but this product did not agree with me or my wife. It took me two days to finish the bottle, and I only did it because there are starving children in China.

Sigh the rare and elusive Zuberfizz. I've had 16 of these in my life tops, and four of them were the Vanilla Cream Soda flavor. Great labeling, very retro and eye-catching.
When it comes to their Root Beer, I agree with the almost unanimous 77 rating: creamy, above average, refreshing. It reminds me of Dad's but better. Not the best, but I'd take it over IBC and Stewart's any day of the week.
