this is the 900th soda added to my database! whoa! usually when i review a soda i will try not to look at any other reviews of it. this one i knew had a few out there and i was sure i read them at some point, but my memory is awful so i have no clue if they liked it or not. after tasting it and deciding how i felt for myself though, i did go check out others’ opinions, just for kicks. two of the three reviews said it tasted like a cola. it doesn’t. really. at all. i don’t get that. one said it had a buttload of wintergreen, one said it had none. i don’t taste any so i will go with the 2nd person. two said they loved it, one hated it, the cola people were split on that issue.
i will add my vote onto the “love” side. it is really good! a really long lasting, large head adds a visual for just how creamy this thing is. yup, very vanilla creamy despite it being the last ingredient on the list. that makes me a little scared of just how much phosphoric acid and sodium benzoate are in here but it is just one bottle, so i will be ok i hope. the honey is pretty prominent in the flavor profile but not enough to overwhelm you. i take it down a point or two for being a little TOO vanilla for my tastes. this is very definitely a root beer, not a cola, albeit a vanilla one.
the label is alright, it is much more a micro-brew beer type label, with the pun and related illustration and all which seems to permiate that world. they claim it is a “soda with an attitude” but it is not so much. excellent, but little attitude.
