Red Bull Editions: Red, Blue, Silver, Yellow, Cherry, Orange

2015 Red Bull Editions Line
The Red Bull Edition line started with three flavor variations: Red, Silver, and Blue. Soon a Summer Edition was released and more recently Orange and Cherry Editions were released under the Total Zero label.

For over a decade Red Bull has relied on their simple product line. They tried cola and even an energy shot in the USA, but reverted back to just the original and two low calorie versions.

However, there is a multi-flavored Monster hot on the heels of the Bull and I think they are a little scared. Earlier this year there was only a 700,000 million dollar gap between Red Bull and Monster and this gap has been closing as Monster spreads world-wide.

The Solution? A more diverse flavor line like their biggest competitor.

Here’s what Red Bull Red, Silver, Blue, Summer, Cherry, and Orange Editions are all about.

Total Zero Orange Edition

orange edition
The Orange Edition is formulated with Red Bull’s Total Zero formula.

  • It is tropical orange flavored and described as orange mango.
  • Same energy formula as Red Bull Total Zero
  • Sweetened with sucralose and Ace-K
  • 12 floz can
  • 114mg of caffeine

Taste: Orange Edition has a lightly sweet strong orange/mango flavor and is pretty easy to drink. I couldn’t taste any of the energy ingredients, but there was a slight aftertaste from the artificial sweeteners used. All in all, a nice edition to the line and I love that it is zero sugar.

Total Zero Cherry Edition

cherry editionThe Cherry Edition is also formulated with Red Bull’s Total Zero formula.

  • It is Cherry flavored and described similar to a black cherry soda.
  • Same energy formula as Red Bull Total Zero
  • Sweetened with Sucralose and Ace-K
  • 12 floz can
  • 114mg of caffeine

Taste: Cherry Edition has a slightly sweet tasting cherry flavor that finishes a little on the sour side. It wasn’t bad, but not as nice as the Orange Edition in my opinion. Cherry also has a slight aftertaste from the artificial sweeteners used, but I do see this appealing to those that like cherry flavored soft drinks.

Red Bull Yellow Edition

yellow editionRed Bull Yellow (previously called Summer) Edition was only available in the summertime, but look for it all year long soon.

  • Yellow (Summer) edition is tropical flavored
  • Same energy formula as original Red Bull
  • 8.4 floz -or- 12 floz can
  • 80mg -or- 114mg of caffeine

Taste: The Yellow has a nice tropical flavor and it reminded me of Orange but Yellow is heavy on the mango and light on the citrus, while Orange tastes the other way around.

This one is sweetened with sugar and sucralose, which cuts down on the aftertaste as well as the calories. It has the same energy blend as original Red Bull, but a little more caffeine if you choose the 12 floz can. All in all a nice tasting beverage.

Red Bull Red Edition

red edition
  • This version is cranberry flavored.
  • Same Energy Formula as original.
  • Sweetened with sugar.
  • Same price as the original.
  • 8.4 floz can.
  • 80mg of caffeine

Taste: Red has a light cranberry flavor, yet artificial at that. It is definitely better than Original Red Bull. The can says “artificially flavored” yet in the ingredients it only lists “natural flavors”. It wasn’t bad, but I wouldn’t choose Red on a regular basis.

Silver Edition

silver edition
  • This version is lime flavored.
  • Same Energy Formula.
  • Sweetened with sugar.
  • Same price as the original.
  • 8.4 floz can.
  • 80mg of caffeine

Taste: Silver is the citrus flavored version and this comes through nicely. It reminds me of Sprite, which is a lemon/lime flavored soda. This was my favorite Edition and what I feel is the most enjoyable to drink.

Update 4/9/2015: This was just sent to us by Red Bull….

The Red Bull Silver Edition is still available in select markets; however, with the introduction of our new Cherry, Orange, and Yellow flavored Editions, the Red Bull Silver Edition will no longer be offered in the U.S. after stocks are depleted.

Blue Edition

blue edition
  • This version is blueberry flavored.
  • Same Energy Formula.
  • Sweetened with sugar.
  • Same price as the original.
  • 8.4 floz can.
  • 80mg of caffeine

Taste: Blue is blueberry flavored and it was my least favorite. I love blueberries, but hate artificial blueberry flavor, which comes through pretty heavily. It even kind of tastes a little like anise (licorice) to me. I’m definitely not a fan of Blue Edition.

  • Kenneth Allen

    Just bought all 3 new editions at a 7-11 in NE DC.

  • ted

    How did they taste Kenneth?

  • Mike

    They’re all very good. Red edition is probably my least favorite, silver being my favorite, and blue is still very good. Glad they chose a little different style of flavors, instead of the same recycled ones everybody does.

  • Nick

    A friend won the redbull contest and they sent her 20 free cans of each flavor. she is sellin them 5 buck a peice so i got the silver and blue. blue is the best . silver is alright . didnt try the cranberry

  • Mike

    I got all three in a 7-11 in Charlotte, North Carolina. All of them legit!

    Silver: The best by far! Really good lime flavor.
    Blue: Probably the best blueberry flavored drink i have ever had and im not just saying that.
    Red: Was not as good as the others. Still alright, but not nearly as good as the other two in my opinion.

  • Mike

    Redbull blue is hands down the best. Godly drink. Quite expensive here in europe.

  • Audrey

    Yep. I’m with you guys on the red. It tastes like cranberry with some sort of weird aftertaste that I can’t quite describe. It’s also sweeter than I expected. The blue was very good. Haven’t tried the Silver quite yet. I have high hopes, though.

  • damian

    I’ve tried red and silver (have a blue, haven’t drank it yet).

    I agree, red is my least favorite (below the original). I surprisingly liked silver, and I am excited to try blue the next time I feel I need that redbull kick.

  • Megan

    they are sold in Florida only at 7Elevens
    The Blue is Amazing. I don’d really like red Bull that much but the Blue is a blueberry flavor, red is cranberry, and silver is lime.

  • Tom

    As a huge RB fan I keep going to 7-11 for these now…killing my bank account 🙂 The Red grew on me, now its my fave. Like Blue alot too…haven’t taken to Lime yet.

  • Matt

    I just found these in a 7-Eleven in Syracuse, NY.
    I tried the Blueberry this morning and I will be trying the other two later today. The blueberry blew my mind. I can’t wait for these to become available everywhere!

  • Tracy Hood

    I stop at 7 eleven each am for 2 blue bulls. I can’t stop. Don’t tell my wife.

  • Angel Hammie

    WE NOW HAVE THESE FLAVORS IN NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA. I work in a bar there that is now selling all 3 flavors. I personally perfer the blue.

  • Zach

    These are available only at (1) 7-11 within a dozen miles of my house, luckily its one of the closer ones! My breakdown is as follows;

    #1) Blueberry is by far the best tasting one of all. RB must have spent the most time on this one as it captures the scent and taste of blueberries perfectly! Even has that little bit of delayed bite/tartness of real blueberries. Great by itself or as a mixer!

    #2) Cranberry comes in at second place; great taste, captures the same essence as blueberry does albeit with a slightly “off” aftertaste, for that it comes in a very, VERY close 2nd.

    #3) Lime is just ok, at least IMO, as it doesn’t have any of the things I love about limes. The smell, flavor and “Zing” are missing and instead of a fresh, tangy, citrus aftertaste your left with a flavor which reminds me nothing of a lime, more like the taste of 7-Up or Sprite. To me it tastes almost as if they needed/wanted a 3rd flavor and haphazardly threw together something that resembled lime just to launch 3 at once.

  • Stephanie Agten

    I live in Belgium and my mother, who just went to a small store in my small village, WON a bag of supplies. I got dips on the redbull silver edition and snickers 😀 rather curious about the taste, but I guess I should wait until after lunch…

  • Tim

    I live in Solihull, England. and we have the three flavours in our main pub, Hogs Head. I love the lime, haven’t tried the other two yet

  • Aaaman

    Anyone find any in Los Angeles?

  • raul

    The green monster is the best one! I would never buy flavoured RB’s

  • mona

    like red one the silver one omg tastes disgusting! lol

  • ed

    while I like blueberry edition, the taste is *exactly* like a cough syrup, except cough syrup is thicker/more syrppy
