Really similar to the ‘Original’ version, only much less sickly and in my opinion a whole lot better. The lower (zero) sugar content seems to be the key to that improvement in drinkability. I still can’t quite put my finger on what the flavour of the drink is, but it certainly is refreshingly different to the vast array of other copy-cat energy drinks out there.
For those of you who are not of a Danish persuasion, Faxe Kondi is a Danish soft drink brand, generally marketed as a sports drink. ’Booster’ is their caffeine enhanced range and with this Original flavour they have taken their flagship product and given it an enhanced makeover. Taste-wise it’s very sweet and fruity, but unspecific in the particular fruit used. It’s pretty good, but quite sickly after a while. All of the varieties were available in 500ml cans, but I chose the smaller 330ml for testing and I think even that serving size is too much. I’d suggest this is better suited to an occasional treat rather than a general pick-me-up. Note: I did also see a number of other flavours, but due to the storage limitations of my backpack I had to take just the essentials!
