Tasting - Buffalo Wing Soda Cock Bull Ginger Beer



Week 2 of our weekly soda tastings with Pedro, Nate & Jake.  This week we had a couple of customers partake as well.  The more the merrier!  This week we let Pedro, Nate & Jake pick the sodas to taste.  They selected Cock 'n Bull Ginger Beer and Lester's Fixins Buffalo Wing Soda.

Lester's Fixins Buffalo Wing Soda

 


Lester's Buffalo Wing Soda has an orange hue similar to a true buffalo wing sauce. With a picture of Lester and a couple of buffalo wings on the label we are anxious to pop this open and give it a try.

There was a flurry of comments being spewed for this tasting and I'm not sure who said what.  12 & 13 year olds are difficult to keep calm.  Here are the comments I was able to document:

Tastes like orange juice, tastes like Coke, tastes like an orange Coca Cola.  It tastes like clearing your throat after you puke.  Only the aftertaste gives you the buffalo wing taste, its acidic, like wing sauce.

Cock 'n Bull Ginger Beer


Pedro - It smells like Coke.  Oh! My uvula is burning! Its like ginger and Sprite, its terrible!

Nate - It tastes like ginger...a WHOLE LOT OF GINGER.  I really like this.  My Dad makes ginger ale at home and this is better!

Jake - I like it too, its good. (Nate & Jake are brothers.)

John & I and a few others tasted this ginger beer as well and it was really really delicious.  I grew up drinking Vernors and this has a really interesting slow spicy bite at the end.  I found it really refreshing and everyone that tried it really like it.  Now I know why its so popular.

You may ask why I am continuing to do these tastings when the reactions arent so favorable.  Number one, because its entertaining and we really like these kids.  Number two, its fun and hopefully someone will find their comments interesting enough to peak their curiosity and drop by our shop to try one of these for themselves.

Bubble on!
