I believe I was made aware of this company from a loyal reader, Brad, but I could be wrong. in any case, i contacted them and ordered a six pack for review and hopeful enjoyment. the company developed from a wine company to have something for non-wine drinkers to partake in. much appreciated! hey, it expands their audience and potential profit as well so it’s win/win. they make only a couple flavors year round, but a few seasonal ones as well. the design is solid and different, a bit 50’s futuristic and clean looking, which is a welcome change. the bottles i got were all black and grey, but it appears there is now brown on there as well. i like it both ways so, it’s one of six, a dozen halves of another. they proclaim it “Vintage American Soda” in very small letters although i am not sure what that implies. i will soon learn i suppose. although what makes it American versus Norwegian will remain a mystery to all. for now.
the flavor is pretty solid. it has a rich sweet vanilla taste with a hint of wintergreen in there and maybe a touch of anise i would say. but the anise/licorice is very much in the background so haters of such things don’t need to stay away. they don’t experiment too much but it is not exactly a classic root beer taste, the carbonation is too mellow and smooth for that. i think making a float with this would be overkill of creamy, at least for me. so it is just fine but not something i’d order again at the mail order prices.
Ingredients:spring water, cane sugar, caramel color, natural flavors, citric acid, vanilla
