So i traded with a fellow root beer seeker named Sagi for a bottle of the regular Ginseng Up root beer a bit ago, although the review has not published yet. it seemed to be a product under development at the time so I am unsure if this is an entirely different product or just a further development step from the other soda. i could ask the company people i suppose, of course. the ingredients are identical so it probably is, but I will assume it is not for now at least. mainly since the nutritional info is different. this one has 1 extra gram of sugar, making there be more sugar than carbs, which is technically impossible, but perhaps the ginseng is magic and takes away sugar carbs somehow.
anyhow, this is pretty tasty. the clove comes through a good amount, adding a little extra spicy taste to the flavor profile. the sweetness level is very good, the cane sugar is the safest and usually the best way to go, not making it syrupy or too sticky but having a pretty sweet taste anyhow. the wintergreen is in there and detectable but not too much in the front. they stray from your typical root beer, and the “american classic” taste somewhat but still have something that is identifiable as root beer, which is not a bad thing to achieve at all.
