Fentimans Curiosity Cola

coke2Curiosity may have killed the cat, but Curiosity Cola resurrected the cola!  And with that being said, this is absolutely more of a cola than a root beer, despite some good root beer ingredients such as ginger root and juniper.  I am admittedly not a cola expert, or really a fan for that matter, but I love the quality of the other Fentiman’s products so I decided to give this a try, and I really like it!  The quality is immediately apparent . . . above and beyond the colas found on the supermarket shelves across.  I don’t really know how to compare it, like I would a root beer, but I can tell that there is quality in this brew.

I really do like the yeasty undertones in this brew, similar to the Bundaberg Root Beer I  tasted not too long ago.  If I remember correctly, the yeast taste was stronger in the Bundaberg than it is in the Fentimans, but similar nonetheless.

The bottom-line is that anything that combines fermentation, botanical and herbal items gives a level of sophistication that isn’t found in a 99 cent bottle of cola.
