the super awesome, kind and generous Sagi told me about this one and even offered to get me a bottle of it and their sarsaparilla. it costs a pretty penny but he was up for it and told me how amazing it was. i am not one to arguing with people sending me any root beers or birch beers or whatever, and especially not when they assure me they are delicious. but i will be the judge of that in this case!
so the bottle is awesome. i always love the ceramic pop top style bottles and the wax seal really adds another whole level of awesomeness in the presentation. there is no label either, just a tag attached to each bottle with jute twine with ingredients and company info. that is a very unusual tactic to take but i like it as well. it definitely adds to the “small brewer” feel to it as that seems like it all takes time to produce and assemble.
so how does it taste? well, i’ll try it and find out! although it is not as unique as I had hoped it would it, it is indeed a very good soda. it is pretty sweet with a heavy cinnamon taste alongside the sassafras taste. it is a soda that you sit back and take note of but not one that will grab your attention completely. if you do pause those to pay attention you notice the complexity of it. it starts off a bit rooty tasting but then develops that cinnamon feel as the sweetness kicks in more, that then fades to a more mellow, smooth creamy taste. i do quite like it but it is not quite in the upper echelon of root beers.
