Today’s Xyience experiment is pineapple flavored. Technically this can of Xenergy is +Lemonade, whatever that means, in addition to being pineapple flavored. I’m honestly not sure what to expect here, but I’m rolling with it. Like all the other Xyience products that we’ve reviewed it’s sugar free and has zero calories. They’ve been hit or miss so far in the flavor department so it will be interesting to see what side of the fence pineapple lemonade falls.
As the can cracks open the faint aroma that arrives is more lemonade than pineapple. In fact I’d be amazed if I could identify this as pineapple flavored based on the scent alone. Hopefully the taste doesn’t leave that much to mystery.
The initial taste I get is the tart bite of a lemon. Slowly it washes away and transforms into the pineapple lemonade we were promised. Truthfully it’s lemonade pineapple as the real star of the show cannot be mistaken. Throughout the entire gulp the lemon teases the tip of my tongue with a tingle of sour. This leaves the rest of my mouth awash with an average tasting lemonade. It’s on par with Minute Maid lemonade, which to me is on the weaker side of the big name brands.
Xyience Xenergy Pineapple is a very refreshing beverage. Something I would happily reach for on a sweltering day. It goes down smoothly which makes it easy to return for another sip. The lack of sugar isn’t overly noticeable and the flavor while pleasant isn’t memorable. All in all it’s a good energy drink, but an average tasting beverage.
Verdict - Buy a Bottle
