Initial Taste Thoughts:
Please refer to post #41 for a more accurate flavor review.
Drinking the first scoop right now before I hit the gym. Here are some impressions.
For mixing I put one scoop in my shaker and shook it. There was about 4 inches of foam (which I read would happen in past logs) so I put it in the fridge for about a half an hour. I came back and shook it once more then let it settle. There is still powder that groups at the bottom but a quick swirl of the liquid mixes it back in -- but there is no foam left that some said did not taste as good. Worked very well this way plus it is colder.
Smells like cinnamon with a fruity hint to it.
The first thing I tasted was cinnamon. Tastes like spicy cinnamon water to me. I don't really get much fruitiness out of the flavor profile at all. It does have an apparent flavor, as I believe some of the comments were it seemed lacking before -- it definitely has taste. I kind of like it. It seems when it first hits my mouth it is kind of fruity, then upon swallowing I get a rush of cinnamon/spice flavor. I can't say it tastes exactly like something cinnamon flavored, but there it is definitely there. Can't put my finger on it.
Texture of a simple fruit juice. No surprises here. Nothing grainy at all. In fact, for seeing powder at the bottom before swirling the liquid I feel no solids in my mouth.
Some numbing on the tip of my tongue. Expected this to happen. Feels kind of cool and definitely lets me know its working.
Off to the gym! Will report back tonight!
