Grr, I passed this by the other week as it only had a 17 on Ratebeer. Now itís no longer on the site and everyone is showering it with praise?

Itís interesting. I was curious why we couldnít rate it, especially since there seems to be yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

My guess is that it "does not contain at least 50% fermentable grains, fermentable honey or apples"

So assuming the 5% abv comes from sugar, this would make it ineligible? I ask because I see a lot of perry on here that doesnít seem to meet the above requirements. Just curious.

Seems to me that one could buy root beer schnapps as an alternative if the sprechers is not avail in your area. And, one can make a good reduction with root beer schnapps and pour it over cheesecake.

I tried to order it from a place in Chicago, but the waitress advised me against it. My bartender friend sent a bottle over to the table a little late. Me and the other 3 at my table couldn't even finish the bottle. I thought it tasted like root beer mixed with a King Cobra. Did not like.

1992 CP is the Real Wale. But Iím trying to be reasonable. May settle for Clear Tab from the same era.
