To all,

I have found my testers for the new energy drink I am marketing.

Thank you for your help and participation. No more testers are needed at this time.

=== !!!

My name is Dave Lindberg and I am brand new to this website. I am marketing a a new energy drink - unlike many on the market.

A drink that would provide energy with:
... no caffeine ... no carbs
... no sugar ... no aspartame
... 5 calories

Using amino acids, adaptogens and vitamins instead of caffeine and sugar.

I am looking for 24 people in the Rochester NY/Buffalo NY area to test this new product. If I do not get 24 people from this area, I will open it up for other areas as well until 24 people are found.

All that I ask is that you:
1. Be willing to be mailed a free sample.
1. Drink it well chilled.
2. Email me back what you thought of the product.

If you would like to be part of the test market, or would like more information about the product, please see my profile and email me.

Thank you,

To everyone who is testing my energy drink. The samples have been shipped and are on the way.

For US residents, expect 2-4 business days for delivery. For Canadian residents, expect 3-6 business days for delivery.

Remember, as with many energy drinks - it will taste the best when *very cold*... so chill well before sampling.

Thank you and Cheers!

Alright time for the bevboards first review of OTG.

Primorye OTG was sent to me in a 8.4oz can (probably the perfect amount). Although the design is very clean I thought it left alittle something to be desired. Although it dose do a good job of getting its point across about the "No Carbs, No Caffine, No Sugar" There isn't really anything that lets you know this is an energy drink other than the sudle "Adaptogenic Energy Fuel". Over all the packaging is a bit of a let down, but since i'm pretty sure there trying to market this as a "premium energy beverage" I don't think it will be that big of a problem after all whats inside the can is what matters the most.

The Flavor
As soon as I opened the can there was a strong apple smell witch I found to be quite nice there was also a nice light pink color to it. After takeing a few sips I had trubble determining what this product tasted like. But after drinking about half the can I started to pick up on the ginseng taste (witch is weird becouse it dosen't look like theres any ginseng in this product. This is probably the olny energy drink I have ever had that uses such a straght forward natural taste. I could potentially see the flavor of this product hurting it in the sence that it might be alittle to taste suspific. Although I do like the flavor of it i'm not to sure how it will go over with the redbull type crowed.

No Caffeine, No Sugar, No Carbs, Dosen't mean No Energy
Honestly I wasn't expecting much of a buzz from this product (a caffeine free energy drink?. But after tacking a look at the ingredients I was surprised to find Taurine at number four on the list. combined 500mg's of taurine with adaptogens and A pretty good amount of B vitamins and this drink gives off a pretty good buzz.

Over all I feel this is a pretty good entry into the energy drink market.It may have a bit of an up hill battle with the "No Caffeine, No Sugar, No cards' thing and okay at best design. But I can definitely see myself drinking this again.

Rating: 3 and 1/2 Out of 5

Too much of a diet flavor, otherwise very good. Also i got mine pretty cold but it chilled in my freezer for a while. Sped it up a little.

04-05-2006, 09:12 PM
Ok... here's my take on it.
I like the packaging and color scheme. I iced it up real nice because that's the best way to have them in my opinion. The 8.4 oz is a good size for any dink. It's not to much, and not to little.
I like the fact that it has adaptogenic herbs.
Next.. As soon as I popped that can open, it was like sour apples filled my kitchen, so that was a nice surprise. The taste however, to me was way to potent. I'm not sure if it was just to sweet, or just much flavoring. But it was tough to take. The color was alright. I really don't pay attention to what color my drinks are.
After about half the can, I had to pass it on.
I was impressed with all the adaptogenic herbs, B-vits and taurine also... they tell you that there's something in there to boost you up and it's not sugar like some other energy drinks use.
I think this could be a nice addition to the market. I'd work on the flavor and that' it. Good luck with this product, I really hope it go's to the top.

I tried mine this morning. It does have a very aromatic flavor, on the back end. It reminds me of ginger. Very herabal also. The color was very nice. And, carbonation level is great. I could see this going over in very metropolitan areas.

i had mine today, it was ok, i also had it over ice, It had a nice scent when popped and poured over ice, and the color is good. The taste is kinda strong for my taste, but i can see it having some potential if the flavor is toned down a bit, and i couldnt taste the diet ingredients at all. The energy boost is enormusly better than many many energy drinks on the market today, and i only had 3/4 of the can!

04-06-2006, 01:14 AM
Ahhh Dave I had my drink yesterday and it was fab. The scent was real nice and the flavor was just strong enough for my liking. I enjoy drinks with kick and it had some kick. Flavor was great apple punch or something, very distinguished and unlike anything I have had in the past and that is good. Had it in the fridge chillin since Friday. If this gets to the masses watch out because it will make some noise!

4.5 of 5!!!

04-06-2006, 01:38 AM
I smelled alot of apple but I never tasted any. Is there a diffrent flavor going around? As I stated mine at least IMO had a very herabal/ginseng type taste to it.

Dave -I would like to know what the flavor of this product techincally is supposed to be. I thought it tasted quite a bit like ginseng but since it dosen't appear to have any ginseng in it I don't think that is the flavor.

Thank you for your reviews and feedback.
They are all appreciated.

Thank you for such a high review and your thoughts. Yes, the flavor is difficult to describe, but I am glad that you liked the flavor. The flavor comes from the herbs and a grape juice concentrate and creates a very unique flavor.

It may smell like "apple" when opened, but I am not aware of any apple flavoring: just the herbs and grape juice concentrate. Your taste buds are right on target though, Eleuthrococcus Senticosus (Acantho Root)is Siberian Ginseng. We describe the flavor as: "sparkling cherry taste".

Thanks again everyone!

Hello Dave,

First up, thanks for the drink. My thoughts:

PACKAGING. Nice and clean, the green with the leaf gets the healthy aspect across well, but perhaps you could pump up the logo a bit to make it more exciting and make it pop a bit more.

TASTE. Seemed a bit 'mediciny' (is that a word?) with a bit of a diet pop flavor. You could taste herbs - this was not necessarily a bad thing, but definitely different from any E-drink I've had. I don't think I would buy this as a thirst quencher, or just for refreshment, but this is a functional drink - which brings us to...

EFFECTIVENESS. I did notice a bit of a pick-up after drinking it. Also, I found that I didn't have that gross feeling you get when you have consumed something loaded with sugar, You have pointed this out in your literature, and I think this will be a big selling point for this product.

OVERALL. I don't think this product will be taking on the Monsters, Rockstars, or RedBulls of the world. I doubt you could even sell it at a convenience store. But I definitely feel that there would be a market for this drink at fitness clubs, health stores or natural food stores.

Best of luck!

04-07-2006, 07:57 PM
True Jay-Cee I do believe this is a great fit for health food stores. That's where I buy my drinks from.

Hey Dave,

I thought the entire package was nice. The brochure was great and explained all the ingredients in it. It's too bad that the customers probably won't spend the time to figure out what they are really drinking. Taste was comparable to other energy drinks, just a little more medicinal. I think you should target health stores for this product, I just can't see a distributor picking it up and giving it the attention that it needs.

Hope it goes well for you.

The information stuff I will always keep in my records. I learned a lot from that info.
