Another beverage from the folks at Xyience and it’s supposed to help with both energy levels and hydration. What I’ve got in front of me is a can of Xyience Xenergy Grape. From my previous Xenergy reviews I know that this is going to be more of a Gatorade/Powerade type beverage in terms of taste. Hopefully it stands out enough from the pack that I can reward it with a good review. Personally I think it’ll taste alright, but not be anything to write about...even though I’m about to. Here’s to me being wrong.
A stronger than suspected grape aroma jumps out of the mouth of the can. Immediately my doubts are turned into cautious optimism. Will a truly delightful grape taste be awaiting me instead of the somewhat watered down version I was expecting?
Ok, we’re working with a couple of positives and a couple of negatives here. Positive number one is the strength of the grape. It is stronger than your G’s and P’s, but not quite as strong as a grape soda. Even though it’s not carbonated there’s even a little bit of a punch to the finish. It’s a very smooth drink and I would even classify it as refreshing.
The negatives, or negative in this case, stops this from being an above average drink experience. With each sip I get a burst of Pedialyte taste. Now while I’ve learned that many folks like the taste of Pedialyte I am not one of them. This just opens up memories of when I was sick as a child. You may have noticed that I use the Pedialyte comparison quite a bit when it comes to lifestyle beverages. I think this is because their makeup is similar and their goal of hydration is the same. Unfortunately I have negative thoughts regarding this taste so the review score usuall suffers.
In the case of Xyience Xenergy though I will give them credit for having a decent grape taste. They do a really good job with their flavor even though they are sugar and calorie free. So I at least recommend you pick up a can the next time you see it.
Verdict - Buy a Bottle
