ah, at last, the final part of the Wild Bill’s line! i will admit my hopes are rather high as the other three were rather good and i often like birch beer the best of all. my wife actually very much prefers birch beer, which would somewhat account for the fact that all of the bottles i initially was sent were consumed before i reviewed it. i don’t blame her of course, i am sure i drank some also. but the kind folks over at Wild Bill’s sent me some more after i offered to buy some.
i always though red #40 was evil and toxic or something? i recall it from my youth for some reason. that was why there were no red M&Ms for a long time. and where the bands all got their name. or maybe i just dreamt that? who knows but the stuff is in here.
wow, this is very very carbonated! the head does not last all that long, but it goes down in a very bubbly way. this feature really masks the flavor underneath, making it difficult to tell if it is tasty or not. i definitely get a little bit of a wintergreen feel and a general taste of birch beer, but the bite is so very upfront and overpowering that little else is experienced. what i can taste is fine, nothing bad about it, but i wish i could taste it more. it is just there, being a birch beer. sadly this birch does not stack up quite as well as the other offerings from Wild Bill’s.
Ingredients:carbonated water, sugar, caramel color, sodium benzoate (preservative), natural & artificial flavor, acacia, yucca and quillaia extracts, citric acid and red #40
