The packaging offers little in way of a cohesive explanation of the flavor here, aside from the cheesy "catch lightning in a bottle" line I read on the back of the label. The flavor my palate disclosed is mostly grapefruit and lemon, a very soda-like taste that should only appeal to Mtn Dew fans looking or an alternative- not energy drink drinkers looking for a bit less caffeine. Its effervescence is curt and everlasting, right down to the last few gulps, but the flavor is dead in the carbonated water. It is maddeningly muted, a taste that your tongue will spend the entire twenty ounces searching for more than what is actually here. Ace-k and sucralose do the sweetening here, but it is a tepid mixture that offers little weight; its only interaction is the addition of a synthetic cloak that veils any possible realism the blend sometimes can achieve.
Each bottle contain some B vitamins and 115 milligrams of caffeine. Being an energy soda, the kick is decent, lasting an hour, perhaps a bit longer. Overall, Mutant Super Soda White Lightning wants to be a sort of "my first energy drink," but there are far too many soda influences here to ever be anything else.
