Sometimes you are in the mood for a beer, sometimes you want to go for a really nice wine. But what if you would like something a bit different? Well, luckily there is a new range of alcoholic drinks that may just float your boat. Enter White Claw and their new White Claw flavors.
What is White Claw?
White Claw is a brand that has become synonymous with hard seltzer. This alcoholic beverage is made with seltzer water, a hint of fruit flavor, and a touch of alcohol. It’s loved for its light and refreshing taste.
White Claw has taken the US by storm, with sales rising last year by over 240%. It mixes a few simple ingredients to make something that is both refreshing and a little bit grown up.
What Makes White Claw Special?
White Claw offers several things that you won’t find in your standard alcoholic beverage. Namely, White Claw is gluten free. For those of you with intolerance, this means that you can still enjoy an “adult’s drink” without any of the unpleasant effects that ‘ignoring your gut’ can bring.
For those of you watching your figure, White Claw has about 1/3 of the calories of a regular-sized beer, so you can sip away without worrying about the carb content.
White Claw is a blend of sparkling water, natural fruit flavors and grain alcohol. All combined to make what is known as a ‘hard seltzer’… In simple terms a fruity drink for people over legal drinking age.
There are a range of flavors to choose from, but which White Claw flavor is the best? White Claw is constantly evolving and updating its flavors to introduce something new and vibrant and capitalize on its initial ‘hype’. They regularly listen to the feedback of their ‘audience’ and actually do requests. The question remains, however, which is the one to go for?

Please note, this table is subjective and is based on general public opinion. Your own preference might vary.
Mango is the top-ranked flavor of White Claw on our list. It contains 5% alcohol and 100 calories per can. What makes Mango stand out is its ideal balance of sweetness and tropical essence. The taste is well-received, earning an 8 out of 10. The aroma is equally delightful, also scoring an 8. It has high drinkability, scoring a 9, making it a refreshing choice for many.
White Claw mango was one of their real hits, and for a time you’d have really struggled to get hold of it, such was its success. More mangoes are sold worldwide than any other fruit, and for good reason, they taste super nice.
This can of sparkly refreshment is no different. The mango flavor is more on the sweeter side with subtle hints of other fruit flavors such as orange and citrus. It is pretty crisp and refreshing, and whether you drink it from a chilled can or over ice it is one of the best flavors in the White Claw selection.
2. Black Cherry
Black Cherry is second on the list. It also contains 5% alcohol and 100 calories per can. This flavor provides a unique, sweet-yet-tart cherry flavor. It scores a 7 in both taste and aroma. Its drinkability also scores an 8, making it a popular choice for those who prefer a bit of tartness in their drink.
3. Ruby Grapefruit
Coming in third is Ruby Grapefruit, with the same alcohol content and calorie count as the others. This flavor offers a tangy and slightly bitter taste, true to a real grapefruit. It earns a 7 in taste and a 6 in aroma. Its overall drinkability is 7, appealing to those who enjoy citrusy flavors.
Grapefruit is one of those flavors that is a line in the sand. Either you love it or you hate it. In the case of White Claw this is no exception with opinions divided with a hard line in the middle. Grapefruit can be slightly bitter, and God help you if you happen to forget to chill your cans of White Claw. Sweeter drinks can often be a bit too easy to drink. Fortunately with this flavor you won’t have that problem.
With a large measure of tartness and leaving a sharp and slightly sour aftertaste, this flavor is nice if you are only intending to drink one or two. Some will love it, others will declare that it definitely isn’t for them.
Not the worst white claw flavor but definitely didn’t wasn’t my favorite.
4. Natural Lime
Natural Lime ranks fourth. It also contains 5% alcohol and 100 calories per can. This flavor is reminiscent of a classic lime flavor, offering a balance of tart and sweetness. It has a taste score of 6 and an aroma score of 7. Its drinkability score is 8, making it a refreshing and easy-to-drink option.
Lime has been the go to citrus additive for so many alcoholic drinks. Whether you like a slice in a gin and tonic or prefer to stomp a slice down into the neck of a bottle of cerveza, lime works with alcohol. White Claw have sought to follow the trend with this flavor.
The lime isn’t overpowering, nor is it too sweet, it is finely balanced without being too much. The flavor is much more akin to some fruit syrups than actual limes picked fresh off the tree, but after your second can, we doubt that you will care particularly.
Rounding out the top five is Raspberry. Like the others, it has 5% alcohol and 100 calories per can. This flavor provides a sweet yet mildly tart raspberry taste. It scores a 7 in both taste and aroma. Its drinkability score also stands at 7, making it a favorite amongst those who enjoy berry flavors.
Raspberry is an enigma, when served fresh it can be slightly too sour, add a hint of sweetness and it really sings, and this is what White Claw have achieved, conveniently packaged in an easy to drink can, and we mean it when we say it is easy to drink. The flavor profile is on point and doesn’t disappoint. If you want a flavor that will be in everyone’s top three, then bring a case of this.
Lemon takes the sixth spot, zesty and bright, just like your favorite summer day! This flavor brings the classic lemonade to your mind with a twist of 5% alcohol and just 100 calories per can. It’s got a ‘not too sour, not too sweet’ taste, scoring a 6. The aroma is equally refreshing, scoring a 6. With a drinkability of 7, it’s like sunshine in a can!
Let’s cut to the chase, it’s basically a hard lemonade. And who doesn’t like lemonade? If you like citrus but prefer lemon over lime you’ll find this absolutely ideal. If you imagine taking a club soda, adding a spot of sugar and stirring it with some fresh lemon juice then you have just imagined this flavor. This occupies number one on our spot for a reason. It is the best. Sometimes you don’t need to reinvent the wheel and it’s best to keep it simple.
If you’re wondering does white claw taste good, then try this!
Think of any soft seltzer or soda. Did you say ‘fanta’? (don’t worry if you said ‘san pelegrino, that just means you are classy). Orange citrus flavors and fizz are hardly a new innovation, but they have been around so long because they just work. With White Claw this is no exception. On popping the can you will be greeted with a burst of tangerine fizz, and fortunately the taste matches. Oranges, sparkle, alcohol. What more can we say?
Seventh is Tangerine, the citrusy cousin of the orange. This flavor is like a burst of sunshine with a tangy twist, making it a perfect beach companion. It also contains 5% alcohol and 100 calories per can. It scores a 7 in both taste and aroma, with a drinkability of 7. Say hello to your new brunch favorite!
Watermelon, the eighth-ranked flavor, is like a slice of summer in a can. It contains 5% alcohol and 100 calories per can. It has a sweet, refreshing taste that scores a 6, and an aroma that also scores a 6. With a drinkability of 6, it’s a perfect choice for a picnic or a poolside chill!
Natural watermelon isn’t normally a particularly strong flavor (depending on how ripe your melon is). To this end, it is safe to say that this flavor more closely resembles a ripe watermelon. If you think of your favourite candy flavors, say for instance jolly rancher watermelon, then you will get the idea. The taste might be a bit strong for some. If sweetness and candy tasting alcoholic goodness isn’t your thing then this may not be the flavor for you.
That said if you only want a couple of drinks that you can sip away on, it might be best to choose something that doesn’t encourage you to drink lots. If this doesn’t do it for you our watermelon margarita might hit the spot.
9. Iced Tea Peach
Ninth on the list is Iced Tea Peach. It’s like a southern porch in a can, offering a delightful blend of peach and tea flavors. With 5% alcohol and 100 calories per can, it’s your perfect Sunday afternoon drink. It has a taste score of 6 and an aroma score of 7. With a drinkability of 6, this flavor is a charming southern belle in the White Claw family!
