Your first sip is largely unexciting; an adequate fruity beverage without personality. Blueberry certainly tasted, a decent impersonation from broad 'natural flavors,' somewhat lively and enough tart. Pomegranate is present as well, although lacking the subtle nuance expected, a stale and stock 'pomegranate' taste. Then there is the alleged acai, never explicitly tasted and is written first, and at all, on the bottle to cash in on the passing superfruit craze. There is enough realism to the sweetness, born in a lab with bit of an artificial accent. Several ounces down and a salty bite develops, expected when you have around eighteen percent of your daily intake of sodium. To end, this energy sports drink will satisfy Gatorade drinkers, but not so much energy drink drinkers.
For a twenty two ounce drink, the caffeine content is a bit low at 221 milligrams. Taurine, electrolytes, B vitamins, and green tea are also involved in the three hour long buzz. It was respectable strength, and with the slow consuming nature of a bottled beverage, lacked a finishing crash. On the whole, NOS Active Acai Blueberry Pomegranate is wholly middle of the road; could have been better, could have been worse.
