Root cause of root beer

The root cause of root beer seems to be the last third of the shot. When Lovers' Quarrel is restricted and only yields 15-17g shots the taste is of a young red wine. When letting it fully come to the ideal yield of 21-24g the taste shifts to root beer. The last 10s of the pull, with a taste that is marked with phenols, modifies the strawberry, cinnamon and strawberry taste to that of Dr Pepper. There is your recipe for a home made root beer ;)
