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

  • 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.

    The cranberry will suprise you! I love blueberries but I will always grab the cranberry every time! I love it! Love it!

    Did you know that the artificial banana flavor is actually based off a about 60 years older banana than the current one, that went mostly extinct from a plague. The current banana is different from it as the others in flavor.

  • k1ng3lv1s .

    the summer edition is not an 8.4 oz can. it is only available in 12 oz.

  • Ted

    you’re right, thanks for catching that. Have you tried it yet?

  • k1ng3lv1s .

    i picked one up yesterday and drank it today. awesome flavor, refreshing tropical taste. i usually buy the blue edition. But during it’s limited run, i’ll be getting my wings with yellow bull.

  • halp

    They don’t have silver at 7/11 where can I find it?

  • youngpussykillah

    I like your momma pussy the best

  • Deirdre_Aednat

    Silver and Red are both bad, I cant stand them. Blue is my absolute favorite, I drink it for the flavor. I never saw Summer edition so I didnt get to try it 🙁 I will drink original flavor occassionally, and if not Red Bull, then NOS.

  • Justice

    I saw some today in Safeway

  • Ibn-e-Batuta

    I used to drink 2-3 cans of Red Bull on the day before an important exam when I had to pull out an all-nighter, and guess what? RB helped me focus on the preparation, and kept me fresh and wide awake until the end of the exam next day. I’d recommend it to anyone taking up examinations.

  • Cloudyr00m

    Well said. Blue edition is my all-time favorite – more than any other beverage in fact. Summer edition was better than cherry, lime, and the original, but still prefer blue. If they don’t have blue, I buy NOS. We think alike – now if only red bull will sponsor me!

  • SandyRavage

    Love silver edition, seems to be a rare find though. Any news on it?

  • Matthew David Hobby

    I actually work for Red Bull. The Silver has been discontinued.

  • Ted

    bummer, that really was the best tasting of the group.

  • Thamara Jacob

    Blue Edition is awesome!!! My 2nd favourite.

  • Geo

    Why was silver discontinued? Was the best. Blue is horrible and red is just ok.

  • Poff

    Silver wasn’t discontinued.

  • Clarky

    The silver redbull was discontinued, but the lime flavor is still here. Just in a different can. I was at Voodoo fest thi year and had 3limes a day just to stay awake.

  • ams

  • Joe
