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 think they meant anise…which tastes like liquorice, fennel or tarragon, lol

  • Flash

    I love the original, its the best to me….
    Followed by the blue edition, though its a little strong
    In third is Cranberry, it took awhile to get used to, but after 8 cans i like it
    And I hate the lime. That stuff is nasty.

  • Jikan

    Not to be a butt, but I always learned that taking energy drinks/alcohol with medication is a rather bad idea. Not sure why, but I thought I’d put that out there. 🙂

  • Sam

    Silver is definetly the best out of the three!

    The flavour is more refreshing than the other two.

  • excaliburca

    The Red and Blue editions are pretty good. The Silver is more of an acquired taste.

  • skoonix

    I have tried all three flavored drinks and I love them. I prefer them over the “original” -which has always tasted odd to me – like melted cotton candy and cough syrup.

  • NoBull

    I love the Red! Refreshing Far better than original. Blue taste horrible.

  • Valais Blackneck

    I love the original RB and I really enjoy those three flavoured versions.The problem is that they have to reduce the price, those things are way too expensive compared to other energy drinks.

  • Isabella

    Blueberry and the original Redbull are THE BEST..and sorry but the silver edition taste like shit

  • FRANK

    SILVER IS THE BEST.. RED LEAVES BAD AFTER TASTE AND DONT LIKE CRANBERRY. BLUE IS OK ….AND I DONT LIKE THE ORIGINAL… SO I GUESS IM OUT OF LUCK IF YOU DIDNT GET TO TRY SILVER YOU WONT THEY PULLED IT FROM THE SHELVES….. FINALLY I FIND ENERGY DRINK I LIKE AND THEY TAKE IT AWAY LIKE GIVING A BABY A LOLLIPOP THEN TAKING IT AWAY .. MORE PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME THEY LIKE SILVER MORE THAN THE OTHER TWO.

  • Ted

    What makes you think they discontinued it? It is still being promoted on their official website.

  • Jakob Morgan

    I love the new flavors, with the exception of blue, but I wish they would make more. I would like to see redbull come up with a flavor and strength variety as big or bigger than monster’s line up. Red bull has always been my favorite energy drink, and the only thing I don’t like about redbull is the fact that the lineup of flavors is so small. Hope to see more, but I’m glad they finally released new flavors. Good job, redbull, I’m looking foward to seeing more.

  • Jakob Morgan

    It comes across too strong for me. Kind of like I got sour blueberry flavor injected into my tastebud. It’s good, but definitely not my favorite.

  • cassandra

    i love the blue edition im drinking one right now 🙂 i do not like the other 2 flavors i hate cranberry and lime #no thanks all hail to BLUE

  • Rebecca Gade

    I have tried them all and blueberry(blue) is my absolute favorite 🙂 red would be my next choice if they dont have blue, and i would not ever pick silver, that tasted horrible.

  • Rebecca Gade

  • asdasd

  • Kareem H.

    I HATE the silver edition!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s disgusting..

  • Tron

    Blue reminded me of cough syrup, Red was okay. Sliver was my fav not only do i enjoy the fresh lime favor but the clear color is a big plus.

  • Tushar

    I am a regular consumer of blue edition. I wanted to try the silver edition. I bought a 4 pack silver edition but did not like it at all. Feeling wasted of money…
