I dislike toilet humor. I’m sure I thought it was funny when I was 5, maybe as long as until I was 8. After that, it just seemed such a crude and base attempt at humor (as opposed to puns which are the highest form of humor EVER). I cringe whenever I’m watching a movie or Anime and see poop jokes. Why bother putting that stuff in there? And then I come across Moose Wizz Root Beer, with a picture of a large moose with a stupid half smile as if saying “ha, ha, I peed…” Really? REALLY? That’s what you’re going for? Your label has such vibrant colors and a nice nature scene, and you have to ruin it with a pee joke? Supposedly the name came from The Moose Tooth Grill, the full service restaurant of the Adirondack Brewery, who makes this stuff. Being in upstate New York, it gets nasty in the winter. The customers often asked them what they’d do up there in the winter and they said they collected Moose Wizz. Seriously? SERIOUSLY? … Seriously. *sigh*
The Body has sweet honey and spices complimenting a nice, complex sassafras core. Rich and creamy vanilla is also present. The Bite is solid from spice yet oh so smooth in your mouth, like velvet. The Head is nice; really tall though it does fizz down quicker than others. The Aftertaste is vanilla and honey with traces of wintergreen.
… and it’s freaking amazing. I really wanted to hate on this brew, but, Wow! It’s delicious and complex and smooth and spicy and pretty much everything I could want in a root beer. I still don’t particularly like the name, but honestly, if the root beer is that good, they can call it anything they want. See how it rates against other root beers.
