New drink alert! The new Red Bull Winter Edition: Arctic Berry came out September 2020, which at least makes sense as we approach the Fall and Winter months. I compare this to Monster which seemingly releases seasonal drinks at random (looking at you, Ultra Watermelon).
Wow, just wow. At this point in my energy drink “career” I’m rarely blown away by taste, but consider me blown (away). I was expecting the bitterness that’s present in pretty much every Red Bull, but Arctic Berry is strictly sweet and incredibly smooth. It’s light and refreshing. Maybe I’m just a sucker for the advertising but I could absolutely see myself drinking this as a treat in between snowboarding runs on the mountain. But seriously, guys, the taste here is amazing; it’s raspberry flavored with just the right amount of sweetness. I’m not saying it’s perfect, but I don’t know what would make it better.
The Red Bull design is nothing we haven’t seen before, but I am a fan of the baby blue. I have to say it's unique in the energy drink space. So for that, 7.25. Pours out light blue with medium carbonation.
I’m drinking the 8.4oz can, so I’m not expecting much of a kick. If you’re drinking Red Bull you’re probably not a caffeine junkie - just looking for a refreshing kick. And if that’s you, you’ll be satisfied with this drink. For the record, it has 80mg/8.4oz.
Refreshing, delicious, crisp; what more do you want me to say? I highly recommend as a pick me up or straight up standalone delicious beverage.
