A bit sweet, a bit bitter, but nice overall. Certainly it’s a lot better than the Xyber Original flavour. I think this is the only cherry and raspberry drink I’ve ever tried so in that respect it scores high on the originality scale.
This is your basic clone drink… slightly sour and not the most refreshing of flavours, but it does the job.
How on Earth do you pronounce Xyber? Ex-eye-ber? Zyber? Cyber? Who knows… despite it being ‘orange’ in the name, it’s much more of a tropical drink. Quite refreshing, easy to drink, but quite furry on your teeth by the time you’ve finished it! There was an empty space on the shelf next to this one for another Xyber flavour and if I can track that one down it will be interesting – berries I think…
I know that Rockstar original has been out for a very long time, but somehow I’ve managed to avoid the sugar-free version of it. Rockstar is a great flavoured drink generally, and whilst I’ve categorised this as a clone it really does have its own distinct flavour. I’d definitely try this again… oh, and it’s very high in caffeine so watch out.
Wow, this is something very different. It’s sweet, a bit sickly, but so smooth in terms of its flavour. I’ve never tried an orange drink quite like it and it’s great! I’m typing this whilst drinking the can and I’m genuinely struggling for words to describe the taste – it’s more-ish, not too fizzy, and just generally a great drink. Not forgetting that it’s low in calories too. And… it contains a lot of caffeine so be careful. Easy to drink and high in caffeine can be a dangerous combination so be careful!
It’s Lucozade Cherry in a can! Ok, so it’s also a much stronger flavour than you’d get from regular Lucozade – less watered down, but the base flavour is the same. It’s nice, not that refreshing especially in a large 500ml can. In my opinion, this would actually have been improved by being sold as a 250ml portion instead, but I guess marketing wins. Despite the brand though, and this tasting rather nice, it’s not as premium as the can suggests. The flavour is very similar to the many smaller lesser-known brands that seem to produce one-off runs for the various budget/pound shops.
Yeah I liked this one! Nice and fruity in all the right ways. Quite a strong flavour yet despite it getting a bit sickly towards the end it was still perfectly refreshing.
A slightly disappointing tropical drink. After trying the cherry & pomegranate flavour first, I had high hopes for this one. Sadly it didn’t live up to those expectations. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad tropical drink at all, it’s just nothing special.
The first of three new Rubicon flavours I’ve discovered – and I hope the other two are as good as this one. There’s a strong and tangy, slightly sour cherry flavour to this – not much of the pomegranate that I could tell, but overall this was a really nice drink. Not too sickly, but still very sweet.
