Surprisingly robust despite its sugar free origins, each imbibe splashing the palate with more verisimilitude than it maybe deserves. Things are less just "orange," more a goulash of tangerine and mango with a competent tartness and slight organic bite.

Shamefully, a metallic aftertaste, that is more of a "during" than "after," perverts each effervescent sip. Making matters worse, ace-k and sucralose sweeten with chemical pungency instead of passion, puncturing the foundation of the otherwise sapid soda.
Each can contains: B vitamins, taurine, and 114 milligrams of caffeine. The our and a half long kick is unimpressive considering its premium price, then again, so is its taste. Overall, the can to this Red Bull reads "Made in Switzerland." It is more like "Made Ineptly."
