What is Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon?
The Groundhog may have called for an early spring, but the Red Bull isn’t having any of that chilly damp nonsense.
With the release of new Watermelon Summer Edition, Red Bull has officially declared it summertime.
Who are we to argue with the company that gives us wings?! Welcome to summer, folks!
How is it?
This may be the first energy drink I’ve had in ages that actually gave me real energy. I chalk that up to the fact the flavor was not the sweet watermelon I was expecting.
It smelled like typical artificial watermelon candy or Jell-O – which I love – but it tasted more like an under ripened watermelon mixed with citrus flavors.
An unripe watermelon is usually a major buzzkill, but it worked well in energy drink form.
Summer Edition Watermelon is one of the sourest Red Bulls I’ve ever had, and I kinda dug that.
Is there anything else I need to know?
There’s a quick burst of watermelon that transitions to a very citrusy finish. I’d totally believe this was “Watermelon-lemon” flavored. Actually, I’d think lemon or lime would be the first flavor listed in that mix because the acidity is what lingers the longest in each sip.
They shoulda called it Sublime-Watermelon. Right? Remember when I referenced their song earlier?
I usually whine about something being too sweet and cloying, but as much as I enjoyed this, it probably coulda been about 25% closer to the Jolly Rancher Watermelon flavor. That would have made this a Hall of Famer.
If you’re buying a Red Bull, you’re looking for that shot of energy, and I think this one will give you a pep in your step.
I didn’t get the watermelon flavor I anticipated, but I still wasn’t disappointed. It’s not my favorite Red Bull, but with it getting this super early release, I can see myself grabbing it a few more times over this eight-month summer.
