We are taking these sodas one at a time. The other night: Sioux City Birch Beer. The color's kind of an earthy red--a surprise out of the bottle. The taste: a cross between sarsaparilla (can you spell that without checking?) and root beer. Dave kept swishing it in his mouth the whole time saying, "It reminds me of something--something from when I was a kid. . ." Then he'd say "medicine?" squinch up his face and shake his head, "no." I don't think he ever figured it out.
We're keeping a scorecard of all these. This one's a Yes-buy-it-again.
