THE GNOMISH SVAQ DRINK ("SOOBRISH")

The Gnomish Svak Drink ("Soobrish")

Image description.

This is the normal kind of Svaq. It has a tarty, bitter taste that sobers you in a moment's time. In most cases, the brewers add some redberry leaves and berries for a sweeter, fruitier taste. The colloquial term "Bitsy-Soobrish" used by Ciosan sailors by the way seems to be a combination of the demand for a "bit(sy) of Soobrish" (to mark a difference to the stronger, creamy Soobrish) and also seems to represent a reference to its bitter taste.
