Sprecher Ravin' Red

Sprecher Ravin' Red

Yet another flavor from Sprecher from the same place I got the Sprecher's Puma Kola and Cherry Cola. Being called "Ravin' Red" I thought it would be a red pop, but upon further inspection it appears to be a Cherry-Cranberry blend soda. Cranberry? Truth be told the only times I've seen cranberry used for soda was for cranberry ginger ale (not even sure if they make that anymore.) So I wasn't sure if this blend of sweet and tart would work.

Well, it does and it doesn't. It isn't overly sweet like a cherry soda as the cranberry's tartness kinda keeps that in check. However, there's an additional bitter flavoring that doesn't seem to come from the cranberry. Looking at the ingredients, it shows that this beverage contains yucca extract and ginseng. I've seen yucca used in some root beers, while ginseng is a not very good tasting root used often for energy. So those kinda add a different dimension that push the flavor of this one into the odd realm. I don't hate it, but I don't think I'll be trying this again.

Sweetened With: "high fructose corn syrup, raw Wisconsin honey"

Verdict: Worth trying at least once
