alright, so i suppose a consequence of having reviews actually publish a year or so after i write them, especially in the fast paced root beer world is that occasionally a soda formula is changed or the soda is no longer made or whatever by the time it appears online. right after the original review was posted and tweeted, Oogave emailed me and told me they had changed their recipe and design and all and i should review the new one as the old version i had just posted a review of was no longer made. so they send some over and here i am reviewing it.
i must say it is indeed better. it is sweeter and not harsh at all now. i would even say it is a light beverage. plus there is a little bit of creaminess to it now. it is not insanely flavorful but that is ok and actually works well here. i would compare it to when you are used to something like Lipton instant iced tea powder mix and you make sun tea one day and realize what iced can taste like. i see too that they are now certified organic so that is also a good thing! it is also vegan and gluten free if that matter to you. of the more natural root beers, this is up there. and the agave sweetening kicks it up a little more. there are not a lot of root beers that lay into the “refreshing” category, not too heavy and syrupy but this is right there. much improved from the old recipe!
Ingredients:purified, carbonated water, organic agave nectar, citric acid, natural flavors, caramel for color

Nice review. I sell the Oogave sodas.

So I'm thinking I have a newer formula from the one reviewed here, My bottle shows what looks like the pineapple top above two OO's. This stuff does not say Esteban’s on the label. I hated this stuff, I spit it out as fast as I could. I give this a 10
