This is the first of two new Monster flavours I’ve discovered so far this year (2021). It looks like Monster have decided that tropical flavours are the way forward – I know it officially says it’s nectarine and peach, but it just comes across as a refreshing and mild tropical drink. Loads of sugar, plenty of caffeine, a decent wake-up hit.
Despite the name, it tastes like peach. Google translate tells me that Fersken means peach so that worked out. It’s a sweet and sharp drink which I find a little too tart for my liking, but it does contain extra protein (BCAAs) and is sugar free.
Peach and Lime should never be combined. Ever. It just doesn’t work, and what you end up with is some sort of drink that doesn’t know if it’s supposed to be sharp, sour, sweet, or bitter. It’s the taste equivalent of mixing all of your paints together to get brown.
Well, it’s not too offensive. It’s quite watery, as you’d expect from something named Energy Water. I don’t like peach drinks, they’re worse than tropical in my opinion, but this wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
Low calorie, in a pink can, and peach flavoured. It’s aimed clearly at women, with a share of profits going to the She Charity funding projects supporting women and children. Sadly, I don’t think they’ll sell many cans unless they tweak the flavour slightly – the peach really didn’t work for me and I found it far too sharp. On the plus side it does contain things like ginseng and aloe vera… lovely.
