If you don’t like bad puns, you should probably leave now because this will be the wurst review ever. Indeed, the brau made by Hermann Wurst Haus is the wurst root beer I’ve ever had. They even put on the label that it is the “Best of the Wurst”, which I’ve actually seen before from an even wurst place in Leavenworth. These folks make a bunch of different types of sausages and other gourmet foods and craft beers and sodas. The label makes me feel blue and it really gets up in my grill. It’s one of the wurst I’ve ever seen. The knives, however, do make it look sharper than most others.
The Body is sweet and spicy with vanilla and wintergreen surfacing after the initial contact. It seems like there’s some birch flavor in there as well. The Bite is an intense array of spice assaulting, though it isn’t harsh, just spicy burn. The Head is tall and frothy as it should be and lasts throughout the entire drinking experience. The Aftertaste is wintergreen and lovely vanilla with spice accents.
This one’s unique and spicy and tasty. Whilst I was expecting to get pun-ished by it, I found myself enjoying every slurp, sip, and swallow. This is more like the “wurst of the best” than the “best of the wurst”. They should probably change their label to reflect that. And add the Seal of Approval, because they’ve earned it. See how it rates against other root beers.
