AZ's can is graphically similar to that of AZ Low Cal, with the most notable change being the swap from a white to a black background. The latter colour has a great track record when it comes to improving can designs, and while that's generally the case here, I did find one problem with it; you can't easily see the crown that adorns the letter "A." The result is a logo that feels like the backdrop couldn't contain itself and is now manifesting all that's near. But other than this quibble, the can does supply a sort of royal sophistication that's otherwise unhindered.
AZ begins with a tangerine flavour who's edges are crusted by a coy though distinctly earthy tea-like taste. The tea flavour is vastly similar, if not weaker, to that of many of the companies other products, and the tangerine's taste is more candied than it is natural. This honeyed quality, however, is countered by the organic presence that the attached tea taste has, and this disallows the resulting flavour to have a clear mind. Both lemon and lime are then dispensed from the former, and the two initially are seemingly simply adjacent fruits, but below the surface you'll discover that the lemon does most of the actual flavouring, and the lime instills any tart and sourness within the other citrus fruit. This partnership creates an interesting lemon flavour that's highly reminiscent of lime, and the taste has far more depth and creativity to it than your typical lemon lime soda. Mild notes of two fruits follow, the two being pear and mango, and the antecedent has a slight oily mouth felt texture that doesn't permit any growth or development. The mango, however, thrives within the limits of remaining a note, and it subsequently boarders evolving into one of the mainstream tastes, but it collapses, along with the rest of the experience, before it gains the chance. The unique though flawed braiding of various flavours disclaims your attention from ever extending to the drink's carbonation, and the sweetness level overall was also censored from major notice. In the end, AZ Energy's flavour is cluttered and unfocused, but regardless, it was more enjoyable than one that was predictable and routine.
Like the earlier variety, AZ gave me an above average kick. It lasted four hours and wasn't one that provided jitters. Each can contains: caffeine(200mg), inositol, taurine, guarana, ginseng, vitamin C, and several B vitamins. All in all, AZ Energy does a lot right in terms of originality, as that's what both its taste and can were ample in, but the two also require some refinements to make it an exceptional product.
