    Taste Rating Scale is 1 (absolute shite) through 10 (tastes like happy)

    Taste: 7 – Very surprising here. It actually taste like a mixture of blueberries and pomegranate. Even with the relatively high sugar content per can (59g) the drink was no sweeter than Gatorade®. The drink is lightly carbonated but this does not detract from the taste which is actually very good compared to most.

    After Taste: 7 – There is a slight raspberry-esque aftertaste at the back of the mouth but it does not stay for very long; fairly satisfying taste.

    Effects Rating Scale is 1 (water) through 10 (check in to rehab NOW!)

    Energy Boost: 6 – An OK bump in the spazz department. Generally, the Sobe® brand energy drinks have a fairly high caffeine per can content as compared to other energy drinks (for example Sobe® NoFear® boasts a 140 – 155mg per can caffeine content)

    Side Effects/Crash: 5 – Nothing to worry about here. I was expecting a noticeable crash due to the high sugar content but the crash was actually less than a Redbull®.
