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.
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. 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 are constantly evolving and updating their flavors to introduce something new and vibrant and capitalize on their 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?
7 White Claw Flavors Not To Be Missed
In this article we have assembled a list of the best White Claw flavors ranked on taste but don’t take our word for it try them yourself. Which white claw flavor tastes best? Lets find out:
1. White Claw Lemon
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!
2. White Claw Raspberry
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.
3. White Claw Tangerine
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?
4. White Claw Mango
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.
5. White Claw Watermelon
Ah, one of the fruits most will definitely associate with summer. 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.
6) White Claw Natural Lime
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.
7. White Claw Ruby Grapefruit
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.
Personal taste plays a part, and we’ve tried to be impartial. But, if White Claw have made it, it’s likely that people have asked for it, so mix and match to see what suits you. Tastes, palettes and moods vary. Maybe you like sourness whereas somebody else loves something a bit sweeter. Anyway don’t just take our word for it. Try them all and find a flavor that you can call your own. What is the best white claw flavor you have tried, let us know down below in the comments.
