I must say I really love doing trades. if you happen to find a brew that you don’t see reviewed on here already, message me up and I imagine we can work out a fine deal. although now that it is getting colder, it will be much tougher to safely ship sodas soon which is unfortunate. I do have a few still stocked up but should order one or two or so more while I can do so with no weather related danger. this one came to me also from Juli from the Root Beer Hunters facebook group. there seems to be something of a sarsaparilla resurgence going on in Oklahoma these days. I am not sure it can be a “re”surgence if there was not a real surge at some point so I will just assume at some past date there were many sarsaparilla brands being made in the OK. it is probably the state with the most sarsaparillas I would venture to guess.
this is a good soda. it is not flashy and crazy and adventurous, no would I have guessed it is a sarsaparilla? probably not. for me, a sarsaparilla is more rich and strong, full bodied and sort of earthy. this is more light and refreshing. as I said, I like this and the way they decided to go in spite of that. of course there are a bunch of root beers that have quite similar taste profiles to this so it does not really stand out. the vanilla is a pretty prominent flavor which is also a difference from most sarsaparillas. I am not going to knock it down for being more root beer than sarsaparilla of course yet I have expectations about the general taste of each type of soda. but hey, bucking those stereotypes is fine too.
