To make it a little creepier, one of the flavors (the juniper) has a label that is also more or less Derpy's bluish grey color. So maybe it should be the official beverage of Derpy Hooves Day possily along with the lavender flavor (since many of us think Dinky is Derpy's daughter, and she is purple)

How is it?
Differnt. The juniper is easy to describe (since juniper is also the dominant flavoring ingredient in gin) It's sort of like what you would get if you mixed gin and seltzer, minus the alcohol and plus a little sugar (though not as much at you might expect for a soda, the "dry" in the name is in the wine sense of dry i.e. not sweet, so there isn't all that much sugar in it (each bottle is supposedly 55 calories, as opposed to a normal soda, which is about 140 or so) so sort of resiny-piney. The lavender(which is a little sweeter, 70 cal per bottle) is a little harder to describe to someone who hasn't tried it since most people don't normally eat lavender (there's usually some in herbes de Provence, but since that's used in savory cooking it's hard to make the comparison. The best way I can describe it is "floral" . Basically if you like things like rosewater/rose flavored candies (like most "real: Turkish delight or violet flavored ones, you'll probably like it, if not you'll probaby think it tastes a bit soapy. I like both of them but then most of my soda preferences are pretty odd (Chai cola, Spruce beer, real Sasparilla etc. ). Most of the other flavors are odd too, Kumquat (sort of orangey), Lemongrass (lemony), Vanilla bean (like very unsweet cream soda) Cucumber (slighty melony), Wild lime (lime, duh!) and Rhubarb (I hate rubarb so I've never felt any desire to try that one)
