Ginger Buzz (1 review)
“Expect the best. Accept the worst” When Blake Schwarzenbach wrote those lyrics I can only assume he wasn’t talking about this soda, but it’s fitting. In my world there are few sodas that sound better than a ginger drink that is sweetened with honey. I was thinking a honey flavored ginger beer, and I was hoping for one heck of a burn to it. As it turns out this isn’t a ginger beer at all. In fact it doesn’t taste like any soda that I’ve ever had before. That could be a good thing, except that it tastes exactly like honey cough drops; Ludens to be more specific. There is a ginger flavor, but the honey overpowers it and the combo, with a little coriander mixed in gives it a definite cough drop taste. Did you know that coriander is cilantro? That kind of blows my mind.
At first I didn’t like this at all really. I was turned off thinking that I was drinking cough drops. I kept sipping on the bottle though, and now that I’m done, I have to say that I don’t hate it. It’s not something that I would want all of the time, but I think the more you drink it, the more acclimated you become and the more you enjoy it.
Our friends Dave and Gabby brought this back from a trip to Maine. Many thanks to them. After finishing this off, I’m very interested in trying Green Bee’s other flavors.
