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 went to work and created Cranberry Orange Radler. Returning for a second season, Cranberry Orange Radler six-packs will begin showing up on shelves in the Greater Kansas City Area on September 12th with other regions to follow soon!
Beautifully hazy and slightly pink in color, Cranberry Orange Radler opens with a aromas of sweet blood oranges and just a hint of cranberry. The blood orange character boldly manifests in the flavor giving way to subtle 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.
Look for six-packs of Cranberry Orange Radler in spots where you've previously seen Ginger Lemon Radler.
