When Ginger Lemon Radler made its debut in the summer of 2014, it became immediately clear that we were on to something. Originally released as a Tasting Room beer in our Sample Twelve pack and on draft as a summer seasonal, Ginger Lemon Radler caught fire and became the summer beer of choice for #TeamRadler. In 2015, with the debut of our canned offerings, Ginger Lemon Radler was available on draft and in its own six-pack from April to August with that season expanding to be March through September for 2016. As fall approached, we found ourselves echoing the sentiment we were hearing from our fans, “We need more Radler!” To this end, our innovation team has been hard at work creating a Radler more suited to take over at the end of Ginger Lemon Radler season.
Beginning in mid-October, Cranberry Orange Radler will be available in six-packs of 12 ounce cans. Using our experience from creating Ginger Lemon Radler, we’ll follow the same process, but instead of using ginger and lemon juice, we’ll add (no surprise here) orange and cranberry to the beer.
Beautifully hazy and slightly pink in color, Cranberry Orange Radler will open with an aroma of sweet blood oranges and just a hint of cranberry. The blood orange character boldly manifests in the flavor giving way to cranberry tartness. The base beer, Unfiltered Wheat Beer, contributes a slightly sweet bready flavor to the malt profile of the beer that shines with bright citrus flavor and a touch of acidity. Cranberry Orange Radler clocks in at 4.05% ABV and 12 IBUs.
Deliveries of six-packs of Cranberry Orange Radler will begin in the Greater Kansas City Area on Tuesday, October 11th with other cities to follow soon. If you live in an area that saw Ginger Lemon Radler, it's highly likely that you'll see cans of Cranberry Orange Radler. It's incredibly important to note that we do not have to access our distributors' delivery schedules and will be unable to confirm when Cranberry Orange Radler is available near you. Additionally, we are unable to confirm release dates outside Kansas City. Your best bet is to reach out to your favorite local spots to ask if they know if/when they'll receive Cranberry Orange Radler.
