ok, to give you a bit of a peek into the behind the scenes stuff here at anthony’s beer barrel, i have a database of a bunch of the data on the sodas i review and know of. by now i figure it should have all of the possible values for the ‘packaging’ and ‘sweetener’ categories. but this soda made me add a new designation in both of them! weird bottle size, unusual sweetener. this is the first natural soda i can think of that comes in a plastic bottle. seems a little strange to me to proclaim as much as they do about what they do NOT contain but put it in plastic which could be leaching chemicals into it. perhaps. or perhaps not. i do like natural sodas, no preservatives, no gluten and so on, with an expiration date to boot. why they put vitamin C in here is beyond me, but i am getting 2/3rd of my daily allowance with this bottle. if i finish it. which i probably won’t.
you see, the problem with most all natural sodas is that they are not so good. this one is alright. i would describe it as if i made a root beer snow cone with well water that tastes a bit different but you know is good for you with minerals and junk that you made with some green tea syrup since you ran out of the root beer kind and which you then let melt entirely. which is to say it does not taste much like root beer but it does taste like hard water. i get an herbal taste, much like a tea with a strong back end taste on swallow. it is just too bland though overall. so although i appreciate very much the natural-ness and the organic cane juice and all of that, i wouldn’t recommend this to most people. it is ok but a drink should be better than just ok, shouldn’t it?
Ingredients:carbonated prified water, organic evaporated cane juice, natural flavors, citric acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin c), natural colorings
