Energy Drink Review: Lemon V + Demon Killer Tropo

Filed in: Energy Drinks.

[Lemon V (left) Killer Tropo Demon (right)]So, lately Fucor have added Lemon V to their range, giving us a choice of regular (green), "dark" (black), diet (silver), berry (red), or lemon (yellow). Now, lemon covered a fair range of flavours - why just in the Coca Cola stable there's Lift, which has a fairly smooth taste, Lift Plus, which has a harsher, more chemical flavour, right through to Diet Coke with Lemon, which tastes like dishwashing detergent. Lemon V tends more towards the Lift end of the Lemon Spectrum, I think. I'd be interested to know exactly why lemon as a flavour seems to be so popular, but in the meantime I'm hanging out for V Cola.

Demon "Killer Tropo", also introduced recently, contains orange, mango and passionfuit juice. And according to the ingredients list on the back, a hell of a lot more apple juice than the other three combined. The result is unsurprisingly a tropical fruit taste, albeit slightly-tart. It comes in a black and brown can. Text on the back states "If you've had a back, sack & crack wax... put this can down!"

... Yeah.

Not really a fan of that one either, but good on them for giving us a choice of flavours.

Haven't tried Lemon V, but Demon Tropo...well, the best word to describe the taste there is 'foul'. The first sip made me wince and go 'urrrrgh', but drinking the rest settled down to merely 'slightly unpleasant'.

V-Lemon is a poor effort for a lemon based drink. I agree with you, maybe a Cola base could add some life to the V energy drink range. If you want to discover more Australian beverages check out
