wow, this is why i love my readers! one emailed me, saying i had to get to Frankenmuth, Michigan to try this root beer as it rocked his socks. i googled the place, saw they mail-ordered, placed my order and less than a week later i have a new soda to review that i never knew about!
i had to add a new sweetener for this one, beet sugar! interesting.
i love the charm of the label design on this one. definitely homemade but well done for being so. we get a chicken in linder hosen along with some flowery border on the main logo stuff. well done. different if nothing else.
i will admit i know little to nothing about anything Bavarian so if there is some tie of root beer and Bavaria, or beet sugar and Bavaria or basically anything about this soda besides the label and Bavaria, it went over my head here. ok, even the chicken on the label is beyond me. alas.
i like the taste of this. the honey comes through but not too strong as in some others. i know it is there but it is not smacking my tongue around. the beet sugar i am not sure about, i am unsure what that tastes like actually. but there is a good sweetness here, not sickly so or syrupy but nice and smooth. the flavor beyond that is pretty standard although solid. it could be a little stronger or unique but it is fine as-is. i definitely applaud them for making their own root beer and doing a decent job, probably appealing to more of a broad audience than if it was more unique and turned people off. if i am ever in Frankenmuth, i will be sure to stop by, although i slightly doubt there is much vegetarian fare. well, deserts and there is nothing wrong with deserts for a main course. or maybe some sort of pancake, i feel like there must be Bavarian pancakes with some cool berry inside or something.
