This is another excellent entry to the Uptime product line. I raved about the Original Citrus and feel almost as strongly about the Blueberry Pomegranate. The only noticeable difference in the drink (aside from the flavor) was the amount of initial kick.
Uptime - Blueberry Pomegranate does not stray too far from the original flavor. It has similar soda-like qualities as the original. Obviously the flavor is the key difference, and the blueberry pomegranate combination does not disappoint. I do not usually seek out blueberry flavorings as a personal preference but I was pleasantly surprised at how well the blueberry and pomegranate flavors interact to create a delicious drink. If I was forced to choose, I'd say the original is still my favorite, but it's very close.
I touched on my love for Uptime packaging in the Uptime - Original Citrus review. This bottle is almost identical with the exception of the accent color changed to a nice blueberry blue. It is a classy look and I feel the same about the bottle holistically as I do with the Original Citrus flavor. The one concern is that the accent color change might not be sufficient enough to quickly identify the different Uptime flavors on the shelf. I have noticed that they've added colorful pictures to the back of the bottle above the nutrition facts, which helps, but still may not be enough for at first glance.
Surprisingly, I found that the Blueberry Pomegranate was smoother and less of sharp, carbonated feel than the Original Citrus. It is possible that I had a less carbonated can so i won't put too much stock into this one, but it could be something to note if you prefer more or less of a carbonated mouth feel.
