I am not a stranger to reviewing things other than beer. Surely you've seen my movie reviews of Toy Story 3 and Avatar. My water review of Publix Spring Water. My macro beer reviews of Bud Select 55 and Busch Light, and my bar reviews of Charlie's and The Boathouse. Is that enough?
I don't remember the first time I tried this soda, but it was certainly post April, 1997 when I was married. Mi esposa es Colombiana, and I'm sure she is the reason this ever crossed my lips.
I can remember drinking this dozens of times, but two times in Colombia are burned into my brain: both involve me basically being chased down in Bogota by the restaurant employees because I left with a bottle of Colombiana. Apparently they take "bottle deposit" very seriously down there in South America! Seriously, charge me extra because I want to take the soda with me. Jesus!
Well, I couldn't find the bottle version in Publix, only 12 ounce cans and 2L bottles. I asked the Publix teenager nearby and when she didn't know immediately if they carried bottles, I dropped the issue despite her willingness to ask someone else. The can says "la nuestra" and "LA QUE TOMAMOS EN CASA" so please let me know what that means (my wife is asleep).
Nice aroma, soft peaches, lightly fruity. Sweet flavors kick things off, sugary, but not ridiculous. Fruity orange and peach. Champagne-ish. Refreshing, flavorful, and of course the carbonation in soda is very important! Check it out! Nutritional info is on the can. 160 calories is all I remember now.
