I have tried both flavors and definitely prefer the lemon lime. The acai tastes like the throw up you have after drinking a cheap and poorly made mixed drink at a dive bar. That being said, both flavors do the same thing. It's a good pre-workout booster for people with sensitive stomachs. I don't get a racing heart beat and jitters like I did with other supplements. It does take between 10-15 minutes to kick in, which is fine since its a PRE-workout boost. It is a little gritty and takes some good shaking to mix, but thats a given with most boosters. The one thing I did notice was that if you don't rinse your shaker immediately after use, it can become stained. It does go away after a while but if you're vain, it could bother you. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a sensitive stomach but still wants some pre-workout boosts. I do wish it was a bit cheaper or came with more powder. It's a bit pricy.

Im giving this product a 10 overall, because, it actually does work, very well. There is probably not a more body friendly company out there making products for the gym. The ingredients in there stuff is just incredible. This would be good to take whether your working out or not. The only thing with this...no fault of their own, is that most of us are used to fast acting, good tasting, chemical **** that makes us feel awesome right then and there. This wont do that, right away. However, if you get off caffeine for a week or 2...then start taking this in the morning, you will have this very clean energy, throughout the day. You wont feel your skin crawl, but, whether its getting off work, or getting another rep in, you will have this subtle energy that just feels GREAT. Now, I went through a bottle, and am now taking C4-I know...lol. But I actually wanted to feel that awful buzz for a month, and as soon as its done, I already have another vega in the cabinet. I highly recommend this product.

Mixed well with water and tasted pretty good. A little bit mild compared to most pre workouts but Im sure thats because its made with all natural ingredients and not a bunch of chemicals. Best part was not having my hands shaking while doing my workout. Would definitely use this again!

Didn't feel much of anything from this product. No real energy, no real kick in the butt, taste wasn't great either. I'd recommend skipping this one.

I found it to be a decent product. I have taken a few pre-workouts. From Muscle Pharm to Super pump a major sell point is vegan. A lot of people count carbs and calories but not chemicals and that's just as important. The taste is okay similar to most pre-workouts, the only draw back is it takes time for the product to mix with water 5-10 minutes. As long as you're not in a rush it's a great product. Will buy again.

This is rough on my stomach, as in it makes me vomit even with a sip if I try it on an empty stomach. I managed to get used to it and used a whole container, but the 4 day break from it was enough to where my stomach can not tolerate it. Too bad too because it does give you a natural energy, not too much, barely even as much as a cup of coffee but it was enough to get through a workout when I didn't feel like getting up. The taste is okay, bareable but not good. If you dont have a sensitive stomach I'm sure it's great, but after puking 5 days in a row trying to digest 6oz of it, no thanks.

This is the perfect energy boost for my evening workouts! I provides me with the energy and focus needed to power through and get it done.

I really enjoy this pre-workout. It's not too harsh and I don't find that the energy lasts for too long after I'm done my workout (which is great because I workout in the evenings often). Admittedly this is the only pre-workout I have taken to date.

I found the taste to be very good when compared to some other high-stim products. No issues on that front. If you're looking for a "high stim pre-workout", this isn't the product you're looking for. It's a subtle, clean, and efficient boost of energy but hardly noticeable IMO. That being said, there is no crash and you can easily sleep afterwards which is huge for me since I work out the in the evenings and work early in the AM.

For those looking for a natural, organic product, you can't possibly beat Vega's Sport Pre-Workout Energizer. It gives you a solid but smooth energy boost, without the jitters and crash associated with most highly caffeinated products. It tastes good and lasts throughout my 2 hour workout sessions. The "let down" - if there is one - is not even noticeable. You cannot tell when the product is out of your system and no longer energizing your body, because there is no crash after using it. I rotate pre-workout supps every few weeks and will add Vega's product to my list of favorites. This is the first time I've used the product and I'm very pleased.

I cannot handle most PWOs, they cause me to jitter and my heart to race. But I really needed a boost sometimes and the helpful folks at Whole Foods gave me a few samples a couple years ago and I have been buying Vega ever since. Vega PWO does the trick for me. Gives me that extra boost I need without the creepy side effects that other PWOs have on me. The taste is ok, but I drink most of my supplements and they can be worse. I've gotten used to it. For mixing, one trick that I found was to put a scoop of Vega in your cup and first add a bit of "HOT" water (enough to cover the powder) and mix. Then add your cold water and it blends smoothly then. No clumps or layers of anything on top.

I am not a body builder!!! I am an older woman who suffers with severe leg cramps. The pain is indescribable. My children should contribute here because they have had to see me screaming in pain for literally 20-30 minutes, pacing the floors, getting into the shower fully clothed and pouring hot water on my legs from thighs to toes while screaming, swearing and crying with the pain. I do not know why I have this. I have consulted every kind of doctor and specialist out there without answers. Then I tried this. IT WORKS!!! As soon as I feel restlessness in my legs I take a scoop of this and it works. I could kiss you VEGA!!!

The Sport Pre-Workout Energizer is a big surprise for me. I wasn't expecting that you can make a PWO from plants that would work well. It gave me the alertness and focus in the gym. As fa as energy was concerned, it doesn't have much kick as other PWO's but this is still a good alternative if you want to stay all greens.

I was skeptical about using this, but it works surprisingly well! Nice smooth energy without feeling like I'm melting from the inside, or jittery. Love how it works, but the taste is horrible. Lemon Lime is disgusting, it's almost impossible to get down. The Acai Berry isn't much better...only slightly better tasting (I mean slightly). I have to choke it down and sometimes it makes me gag. Not a great quality in a pre-workout. If the taste was better I would give it a 10, but seeing that I occasionally have to take a different pre-workout because I can't stand the taste of this makes it a problem.

I got a few samples of the Lemon Lime Pre-workout for Vega Sports and this is my review. Over 16g of carbs which is on the higher side for pre-workouts a touch of fat, and an interesting electrolyte complex makes for a different formula. Since it is not very heavy in common ingredients like beta alanine, citrulline, or caffeine, this is not on the stronger side, but a different twist on the pre-workout game. The lemon lime flavor was very enjoyable and I am not a major lemon lime fan. I would have to lose a few points due to the overall effeects of a non-stim pre-workout and labeled as an energizer.

I'm sensitive to caffeine, but this product works well for me. It give me enough energy to push through my workouts. I typically work out in the evening, and it doesn't interfere with sleep afterwards. My husband loves this product too. He's 44 and plays soccer with 20-something-year olds and he's able to keep up with them. In fact, he's been asked what he's on and how he keeps up. At first, the taste wasn't the most appealing, but I've become quite accustomed to it and enjoy it now. The taste varies based on how much water you add. I like less water (about 1/2 small shaker cup), while husband waters it down (almost full large shaker cup). I like the product b/c I try to keep my supplements as "clean" as possible. I avoid anything ending in "ose" and artificial colours and sweeteners. I also stack it with the Vega Electrolyte.

Very amazed about this product. Vega Pre-Workout Energizer is just that, lot of energy and I mean clean energy with no tingling effect or head aches or hart palpitations like with other products designed for more advanced athletes. This is a perfect products for beginners and mid level enthusiast of sports. It mixed fast and easy in water with a very delicious flavor taste. I will say for any kind of sports for men and women (Climbing, walking, running, tennis, swimming, Ping-Pong, Cross Fit, etc....). Give it a try without hesitation it will not disappoint you. I'll give it a 10 out of 10.

I received a sample of this from the very generous people at Vega and as much as I am a fan of what they stand for and some of their other products this was simply unpleasant. I really did not enjoy the taste and there was just no real effect. One of my training partners actually just ordered some lemon lime so Ill sample that and hope it is better, alas I won't be returning to the acai berry for my pwo.
