What does Red Bull taste like?

Everyone I know that has tried Red Bull for the most part likes it, but like myself, none of us can figure out what it all tastes like! I know I know the taste from somewhere, but I have no clue what it is.

So my question is, what does Red Bull's taste remind you of?

ugh ...I hate that shit. But smarties is close since to me that tastes like overly sweet chemically enhanced candy. Of course anything would taste half decent mixed 50/50 with decent vodka...but why spoil the vodka when you can mix it with something else ...anything else! Sorry, I just hate that crap. IMO stay away and if you're so addicted to caffine that you need it ...well stop it.

Take the yellowy clear stuff that comes out of a zit that's already been popped, mixed 8 to 1 with robotussin, and fed to a diabetic rat in an artificial sweetener toxicity test. That rat's urine would taste like red bull.

...unlike Red Bull which IMO tastes like a concoction of bull piss...well more like bull bile since it has taurine in it:

Taurine: also known as 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, taurine was originally isolated from bull bile in 1827. Now it is also made synthetically.

Strangely enough, or maybe not, when you google "bull piss" you'll see a couple links and pics of Red Bull. I rest my case.

Far as I can tell, Red Bull tastes very much like a cocktail of Robitussin, flat Dr Pepper, slightly spoiled Maneschewitz sweet wine, and the stuff dentists put on your teeth to bond and seal them.

It is undoubtedly one of the worst-tasting beverages I have ever had, in addition to which, its "energy lift" was markedly short in duration, and caused a certain unpleasant queasiness.

Why anyone would drink it on purpose is beyond me.

That's the perfect description of the taste.

Yeccchhh! Eating spoonfuls of sugar would be a less expensive and more natural alternative.

Liquid carbonated sweet tarts.

Personally I love the flavor but can't stand the thought of paying their asking price for it.

walmart-generic (equate?) red "nyquil" with flouride treatment gel. And Necco wafers. the sugarfree tastes more like smarties than Necco.
I was on the phone with a guy who literally had a psychotic break after 9 RBVs. He was NEVER the same again and I later found myself two steps from an RO against the guy... my friend's boyfriend, not even mine!
I don't touch the stuff much any more. Rather have coffee, personally. Soda if I'm desperate.

Smarties. Afghanistan.

They used to give us cases of it in the hope that we would stay awake for 16-18-20 hour missions for a week.

Doesn't work that well, caffeine. Crushing half a dozen piss-warm Red Bulls a day is bad for your soul.

Army decided Red Bull was too expensive (or something) and switched to something far worse.

"Rip-Its."

Do you have to be in the air force to get modafinil? Even at street prices, it's cheaper than half a dozen cans of redbull.

You guys ever see the story about the two young Marines who invented the "energy chew?" Apparently each "dip" has enough caffeine to put you on your ass.

Sorry for the threadjack! I still maintain Red Bull tastes like sugar-coated battery acid . . . and I love it.

Reminds me of the stuff in pixie sticks. Useful to drink on long road trips.

Actually, I guess I didn't actually drink it. Perhaps the thought that I would have to drink it if I got sleepy kept me awake...

Wow. Lotsa non-fans of Red Bull. I don't think it tastes that bad. Red Bull & Malibu rum used to be my "club drink." Tasted like candy, kept me out on the floor dancing (okay, didn't really need THAT part of if), and kept a good buzz going.

If you're talking straight energy drinks, though, I prefer Rock Star.

Tastes like bubblegum flavor to me. Of all the energy drinks I like Red Bull best. Monster is ok, but an entire can is twice the size of a redbull and its too much sugar. I drink Red bull as a coffee subsititute.

QED. IF you look at the ingredients, it actually says "Aritifical flavorings: 3/4 melted blue freezie, 1/4 Extract of Nerds...

Not really, but this is what it tastes like to me.
