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.

    I love Red Bull always have and always will. Now the only favor I tried is the red can of red bull, now this edition I love because it go with every thing even liquor and the cranberry makes it more special. I buy them from Walgreens, I buy a six pack or 3 for 5 every week or two but I’m in love.

  • Jenine

    Bought mine @ Community Supermarket In Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania. Became available today. Bought a 4 pk of blueberry for $7.99. All three flavors are available there. Same effects as original with a bit of fruity flavor.

  • Brittany

    I never cared for red bull, but I LOVE THE FLAVORED EDITIONS!!! i AM COMPLETELY HOOKED, MY FAVORITE ARE CRANBERRY N BLUEBERRY.. 2 yummy!

  • Erik

    I loved the silver it tastes like Surge, that amazing soft drink Coke got rid of years ago. I tried the cranberry today and thought it tasted awful, too much artificial sweetener and it burned – wasn’t refreshing at all. I don’t think I’ll try blueberry since every review I’ve read lists it the worst of the three. Stick to the silver, only good one in my opinion, I actually like silver better than the original red bull.

    I’m currently seeing a lovely girl who (much like me) loves energy drinks- specifically redbull (though I prefer monster or NOS).

    Anyways, I started seeing these within the last couple weeks in my area of Ontario.

    Today I ended up seeing them on sale at a convenience store I was in while waiting for a bouguet to get made for me to give to her, so I picked up 2 silvers with my pack of smokes.

    I got to her house about 5 min later and gave her the red bull (and flowers, but that’s not relevant), and she had never heard of the new ones and had no idea red bull had even released new flavors…

    About 10 minutes later we open our cans and take our first sip….

    “JESUS CHRIST… this stuff actually tastes like a lime!” Was my first thought. And not like a pleasant candy lime flavour… the taste is like you just bit into a lime.

    I had a hard time enjoying it, but by the end of the can the taste grew on me.

    Summary: I would say I do not think I’d buy this flavour again unless for my girlfriend, who loved the new flavour better than the original. I guess we all have our tastes. I hope to try the blue and red soon.

    Thanks
    Ian

  • Léo

    The new red bull editions are all really nice though my preference Lies with the red and blue editions whereas silver edition has a metallic flavour that doesn’t sit well with me. All are very nice no doubt about it
