Taste Rating Scale is 1 (absolute shite) through 10 (tastes like happy)
Taste: 5 – Meh. Taste like a carbonated sour apple Jolly Rancher with a dash of blueberry syrup. Being "blue agave" I was hoping it tasted more like Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo brand tequila, but, alas, no tequila and no worm...at least no worm that I saw.
After Taste: 5 – Lingering blueberry syrup taste.
Effects Rating Scale is 1 (water) through 10 (check in to rehab NOW!)
Energy Boost: 5 – Honestly, why bother. The vast majority of "energy boost" comes from the caffeine as opposed to the guarana; which only accounts for 1.3 mg in a 16oz can.
Side Effects/Crash: 1 – No real noticeable crash.
I've wanted to try this, but I've got a strict rule of never drinking calories if I can help it.
And I'd kill for caffeinated tequila. Rather, I'd probably kill after drinking caffeinated tequila, so I probably shouldn't. Man, that's just pure evil juice.
Isn't that wonderful. It's more of recreational pick me up than a real energy drink. I like the taste. It's hard to place. Guarana comes through strong, but you don't get that nasty nutty after taste. Good stuff.
tHIS IS NOw my favorite non-alcoholic beverage. I drink about 1 per day. Love the taste, and it gives me a productive, energetic buzzz. Mmmm ... Blue Demon... *drool*
I started trying different engery drinks when I got tired of paying 3+bucks a can for Red Bull, which I also love... and the only one I've found to replace RedBull is my Blue Demon.. Great Stuff!
