Reed's Raspberry Ginger Brew

So, like, remember that Reeds drink we had a few weeks back?  You know, the one with, like, apples in it that was, like, really good?  Well...this isn't that, but I can use it as a basis for explaining it.

Similar to Reed's Spiced Apple Brew, a beverage we loved, this is a unusual blend of ginger with fruit.  Unusual in a good way, of course.  No surprise, it's filled with lots of natural ingredients, as a Reed's beverage usually is, such as ginger root, raspberry, apple, pear, lemon, etc.  

As you can see, the ginger comes before the raspberry, whereas in the Spiced Apple Brew, the apple comes before the ginger.  This means you're going to taste more ginger and there's just a hint of raspberry flavor.

This is another one of those ginger drinks where it smells and at first taste seems like it's going to be powerful like a ginger beer, however it doesn't end up that way and has a mild, but bold taste.

I felt this ends up in a Kraft Macaroni & Cheese situation where it shouldn't be called Raspberry Ginger Brew but Ginger Raspberry Brew, because it really is more of a ginger drink with a hint of raspberry.  It's decent, I just wanted more raspberry.

Verdict: Buy a pack!
