MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 17, 2014

A very light and refreshing pie that is easy to make. Like some of the other reviews, I may try adding additional root beer flavoring to pull the flavor out more. A keeper in my recipe box for summer time.

It's very good. I added 1/4 teaspoon root beer oil candy flavoring. Next time I think I'll add 1/2 teaspoon to increase the root beer flavor.

The root beer is not over powering, but just a perfect blend of all of the ingredients. It is quick to make and delicious to taste.

This is a really, cool, refreshing pie...I do have to agree that it isn't very "root beery" ....But, I think if any more was added, it would be too runny unless one put cream cheese in the mixture to make it thicker...
