It's always good to check in on Wegman's soda section since they like to bring in new things every now and then. For yesterday I found this line of sodas I'd never heard of before . . . Johnnie Ryan's. Which is an odd thing since the bottling says "Since/Depuis 1935." Since the bottling features English and French text (as well as being bottled out of Niagara Falls, NY) I can only assume that this is available in the US and Canada. They had several varieties, but wanted to pick this one up first, Root beer! Oh wait, my mistake . . . "Delicious Root Beer/Delicieux Racinette."
As for taste, it's really sweet. Thankfully, just shy of being sickeningly sweet for my tastebuds. Has a okay bite. Would have liked a little more from that to offset the sweetness, but it has a pretty good rooty flavor. Maybe even a little birch-like flavor (kinda like Crystal City Root Beer.) It's definitely above average.
Sweetened With: "pure cane sugar"
Verdict: Worth a bottle or two
