A pretty good pick-me-up with a very subtle blueberry flavour. Quite sweet but not sickly and very easy to drink. Certainly it is better than the standard energy flavoured Battery I remember having a while back.
There’s no official value on the can for caffeine content, hence I’ve guessed it at being as low as possible. This is branded as being a health drink, containing natural pick-me-ups such as guarana, magnesium, vitamin B6 and others. It tastes okay too so far as health-branded drinks go, but that’ll probably be because of all the sugar (not so healthy after all!).
Nice! It tastes like a mixture between raspberry and blueberry, along the lines of most of the other blue coloured energy drinks. It packs quite a punch being high in sugar, caffeine and volume, and being very drinkable goes down quickly too. Smooth and tasty.
Well, it was okay I suppose. To be honest though it was a bit middle-of-the-road. I didn’t hate it – it had no bitterness, no nasty aftertaste. On the other hand it wasn’t fantastic either, it was a bit sweet, fruity, and had an okay caffeine kick, but the flavour just didn’t jump out at me as being amazing or anything special.
Red Bull are full of surprises. I thought this would be my favourite of the three new editions. As it happens it isn’t – it’s good, don’t get me wrong on that, but it was a tad too sharp to be my favourite. So far, the Red edition is holding first place. The drink is tart and fruity, but very sweet. Slightly too sickly if I’m being honest but it still gives you the standard Red Bull kick. It tastes premium and is a good fit in the Red Bull range – I can’t say it’s all that original because I’ve tried blueberry energy drinks from the US before and it’s pretty similar to those.
Exactly the same as the can, but in a bottle! See this review.
I really do like Rockstar Energy Drinks! They’re just so different each time. Whereas with Monster, you get the Monster taste sneaking through in whichever flavour you purchase, with Rockstar they’ve managed to make each one individual. Xdurance very lightly carbonated but not flat, and tastes of blueberries. It’s a very different flavour and I was quite excited to have found it in a tiny newsagents near where I live. It’s jam packed full of caffeine and calories and tastes amazing with added pomegranate and acai for fun. I did at first think it might have been the world’s first counterfit energy drink until I looked it up on Rockstar’s web site, because of a typo on the can (see the image below). “Rockstar Xdurance is Dfsigned to give you…” yes, it’s dfsigned not designed… oh well.
