REVIEW: Red Bull Summer Edition Beach Breeze

Red Bull Summer Edition Beach Breeze

What is Red Bull Summer Edition Beach Breeze?

It’s a Red Bull. Thanks for reading the review, enjoy your summer folks!

How is it?

Ok, I’ll elaborate more, but Beach Breeze is unmistakably Red Bull.

It tastes like a sour Red Bull with an added coconut finish. The sour aspect is probably supposed to ape a fruit flavor, so I’d guess they were going for unripe pineapple?

If you’ve ever wondered what Red Bull’s attempt at a Pina Colada might taste like, this may be as close as you’ll get – a sour Red Bull with a fragrant artificial coconut aftertaste.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Red Bull Summer Edition Beach Breeze Ingredients List

I could be wrong about the pineapple. There’s no fruit listed in the chemical – pardon me, ingredient list. Perhaps I just tasted the “glycerol ester of wood rosin.” Mmm! It’s not officially summer until I’ve had some “glycerol ester of wood rosin.”

And with that sarcastically said, we don’t need fake dyes in our energy drinks, but Beach Breeze’s color is super disappointing. This is a nitpick, but I poured this into one of my “fancy” beer glasses, expecting a cool light blue color and got what looked like the aftermath of a dissolved Alka-Seltzer tablet.

Conclusion:

I love Pina Colada, and coconut especially. The last thing I drank from the aforementioned beer glass was a delicious coconut stout. The coconut here is cheap and artificial. The pineapple is essentially an educated guess, and it’s a little too sour to really stick out amongst the handful of Red Bull flavors you’ll find next to this in the fridge. For example, I tried the Sugar Free Pear flavor a few days later, and it was much better.

In fairness, Beach Breeze gave me a little pep in my step. I didn’t sprout wings, and it didn’t “vitalize my body and mind,” but it was still kinda refreshing despite the “meh” flavor.

7 thoughts to “REVIEW: Red Bull Summer Edition Beach Breeze”

  1. This is so weird. I got nothing but flower taste. It was like drinking perfume, and I’ve talked to a few people who agreed with that lol. It should be called Beach Febreeze; one of the worst drinks I’ve had, easily. But, if you’ve ever wanted to drink perfume, this is your chance to safely do so.

  2. This stuff tastes like caffeinated perfume. While drinking this you will not be thinking “sunny tropical island,” but more like “Meth lab with pine tree shaped coconut air fresheners.”

  3. I do not understand the choice of glasses that the reviewers on this website use. They are never the right size or shape for the drink being tested. They are never chilled, and they never have ice in them. It’s so unappealing looking. I know these aren’t ads but I find them actively repulsive most of the time. (And do not get me started on that square one that one reviewer always uses that looks like a dollar store candle holder . . . .)

    1. Note to self: Use the square glass that looks like a dollar store candle holder for EVERY beverage review I do from now on. Also, buy one for every writer on staff, ship it to them, and require it be used for ALL BEVERAGE REVIEWS.

      1. I wanted to search out this fabled square glass, but there it is up there in the Related. I don’t know, man. The Tropical Berry one looks fire poured into the square glass. I’d swim in that.

  4. I object to the diss of glycerol ester of wood rosin, the magical ingredient in Hawaiian Punch. Yes, that red stuff peddled by the aggressive short tourist. My mother used to get a big can of it as a special treat in my extreme youth. (How extreme, you say? I remember Hubert Humphrey’s run for President and was so disappointed that I was too young to vote for him, I was a fan. Heck, I remember JFK before that, and even vaguely Adlai Stevenson before JFK. I was intriqued by the name Adlai until I met an obnoxious girl named Adelaide.).

    This was long before the pop top era. We had to open the can of Hawaiian Punch with an old-fashioned can opener with a triangular tip to punch a hole in the top of the can.

    But it did come with glycerol ester of wood rosin (aka ester gum). And I assume real sugar. And some real fruit juices. Whatever, it was magical.
