so here is the third and final piece of the trinity of sodas from Hummingbird Hill. i am slightly unsure if i should classify this as a birch beer or a root beer. i know grammatically it is a birch root beer, just like a “chocolate root beer” is a root beer, not a chocolate beer. but they already make a root beer. granted they could make several types and if they had a butterscotch root beer or cinnamon root beer i would not even think about it. but here i am going with birch beer, tough luck grammar!
judging by the other two sodas of theirs i have had, this could be great or awful, i hope for great. let’s find out, shall we…
oh, that smells like a birch beer so I am justified in my classification. sort of.
again there is virtually no carbonation. strange. i am ok with that but some foam would be nice. it is very wintergreen. VERY, see i capitalized for emphasis. i don’t capitalize much so it must mean something. yes, it really tastes like those wint-o-green lifesavers a lot. i enjoy that taste for sure, but i think they do it a little too much. i could stand for it to be backed down a bit. this is a solid birch beer though even with the excessive birch. it has that great balance of wintergreen kick, sugary sweetness and rooty backend. it does not break ground but that is just fine. it works and does the birch thing well.
