Well, you can write it in Spanish if you like, but it’s still a tropical/passion fruit drink. Yes it’s fruity, yes it’s very sweet, but it’s really quite a summery drink and odd to find in the depths of a British Winter. Given the many, many, MANY other tropical style Rockstar drinks I’ve discovered over the years, I’m really not sure what distinguishes this particular one from any of the others… perhaps it’s just a marketing thing?
When you open the can you are greeted with the unmistakable ‘tropical’ aroma of this drink. It turns out the taste is not quite as the smell suggests – it’s fruity and slightly sharp, but much smoother than say Monster Ripper.
Not bad at all! It’s really sweet and tropical, but the balance is just right and it’s pleasant to drink. A larger than normal can and packed full of sugar, it’s not one for regular consumption though.
Not exactly original, but certainly a palatable beverage. It’s fruity and fresh, but also quite sweet and sickly by the time you get to the end of the can.
