Where and when: purchased 2/28/09 at Major Market, Escondido, CA
Color: Brown, moderately opaque.
Scent: Scent of anise or licorice?
Taste: Fairly sweet, no creaminess. Cola-like, with an earthy bite and an intensely sour aftertaste. Doesn't particularly taste like lawn. Not bad, really. Effectively a licorice soda over a not-very-sweet lemon-lime soda. I've never had dandelion wine, or spent time in the yard chewing on lawn cuttings, so I cant vouch for the accuracy. Would drink again, with only slight trepidation; slight fear that the batch I got was accidentally-mislabeled licorice soda, and that *this* time it will really taste like weeds.
