Mildly dry with a whisper of rhubarb taste.
Notes: Dry Soda (dry as in “not sweet”) has developed a line of sodas that were meant to have a minimum of sugar and a emphasis on taste. Other flavors include Blood Orange, Cucumber, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon Grass, and Vanilla Bean.
Appearance: Nice fizz/carbonation to it. Perfectly clear, the company did not feel compelled to color it with some chemicals just for shelf appeal.
First Impression: Nice light Rhubarb smell to it, like you were smelling a freshly snapped rhubarb stem. Slightly dry savory notes almost a little celery like but nicely done, distinctive but not a syrupy flavor equivalent.
Taste: Mildly dry with a whisper of rhubarb taste. Pairs well with food , compliments things nicely without overwhelming your taste buds or carpet bombing them with too much flavor and sugars.
Drinks: Works well in drinks were you want taste and not sugar, stickiness and intrusive flavor. Pairs and plays well in both cocktails and with many different foods.
Bottle: Generic clear glass, 12 oz size .Information s printed directly on the glass to save paper and be environmentally friendly and eminently recyclable. Print in this case is rhubarb stalk red.
Final Thoughts: While I don’t care for it as much as some of their other flavors, it is more a personal taste issue than a statement about the quality of the soda itself. Still a very nice thinking/conscious persons soda. Low sugar, nice unusual taste and not over done like some many others out there. O. K., it costs a bit more than a generic soda ( but less than a number of other high end sodas) but if you are using quality spirits it’s a waste to use cheap mixer – particularly in a drink that doesn’t have a lot else in it (no fruit juices, liquors, etc.). You wouldn’t use chlorinated tap water, so why use cloying dulling mixers?
Well laid out and informative pages on cocktails, food pairing, where to buy, and what they do.
