it has been quite a while since I reviewed a spruce beer! wow. this one comes, very kindly, from the gourmet one himself. as he does not cover this segment of ‘root’ beers, i am happy to do so.
as root beer is traditionally an american beverage, I often read about how people from other lands think it tastes like tooth paste or some other such gross thing. there are videos of people trying it for the first time and the like out there. but then again, there are videos of pretty much everything out there so that is not saying much in the end. my point here is that spruce beer is a uniquely canadian thing it seems so people accustomed to root beer often think this smells and tastes like furniture spray. usually i can sort of see that complaint but don’t really agree with it. and yes, who has not gotten some Pledge in their mouth or nose when spraying stuff, ok?! in this case though, yeah, this totally tastes and smells like Pledge. carbonated Pledge but still… it seems a fine line between being yummy and being kind of gross. this treads right on that line. some sips I am like ‘yeah, no, this is just cleaning product, ick!’ but then others i’m like ‘well, i do like lemon with herbal stuff in it, maybe it is not so bad.’ i kind of tastes like lemongrass dishes, which i am not too fond of really. it is not the crisp lemon of like sprite or something. it is much more herbal and deep. i am not saying i hate it but it really isn’t my favorite thing in the world
