White Claw Hard Seltzer debuted in 2016 under the leadership of Anthony von Mandl, a Canadian entrepreneur who founded Mike’s Hard Lemonade in 1999.
Hard seltzers are a fashionable, refreshing, and gluten-free alternative to beer made from malted alcohol and water.
White Claw is famous for its unique and flavorful repertoire of seltzers, using real fruit juice and natural flavors.
Read on to discover the best White Claw flavors to try for your next summer bash or a lazy day at the pool.
White Claw pineapple is one of the brand’s signature flavors, made using natural pineapple flavoring and citric acid. This delectable 100-calorie can of hard seltzer offers the perfect balance of sweet and tart.
It’s the height of tropical indulgence that tastes wonderful during the summer or fall, blending well with tropical and citrus flavors in a cocktail or garnish.
Black cherries are even sweeter than the red or yellow cherries most common in supermarkets. That’s what makes it such a luxurious hard seltzer flavor.
White Claw Black Cherry consists of both natural flavors and real cherry juice concentrate for the ultimate richness and a silkier, more substantial texture with a refreshing carbonated finish.
There’s no more refreshing and summery fruit than watermelon, making this White Claw Watermelon flavor the best summertime option.
Made with real watermelon juice, cane sugar, and a dash of citric acid, the watermelon White Claw has a delicate sweetness punctuated by a tangy, carbonated finish. This flavor should be a staple in your fridge during the summer.
Citrus Yuzu Smash
Taking inspiration from the treasured Asian citrus fruit known as Yuzu, Citrus Yuzu Smash is part of White Claw’s Hard Seltzer Surf collection.
It’s a combination of the brand’s signature lemon flavor and Yuzu, an exotic, ultra-sweet orange. The balance of sweet and sour from lemon and yuzu bestows a strong and well-rounded palate of citrus flavors.
Raspberries are always a special treat, their delicate texture and flavor making them one of the most elegant summer harvests. Raspberry-flavored White Claw blends fresh raspberry juice concentrate with citric acid and cane sugar for a refined seltzer.
It’s more on the tart side, so this seltzer is perfect for drinkers who don’t like ultra-sweet flavors.
On the opposite side of the flavor spectrum from Raspberry lies the decadently sweet, tropical mango. Mango White Claw is a sweet and tropical seltzer that’s perfect for summertime cookouts or beach coolers. It has mango juice concentrate, which means a concentrated sweetness and mango flavor.
The carbonated finish and citric acid add a pleasantly sour tingle.
Watermelon Lime Smash
In many tropical cultures, adding lime juice to watermelon enhances its flavor while also adding a tangy citrus finish. This is the same idea behind the Watermelon Lime Smash flavor, another mainstay of the White Claw Surf collection.
Cold-pressed lime juice tampers the sweetness in the watermelon juice concentrate, augmenting the watermelon flavor in this delicious summertime beverage.
Another delicate and fresh berry flavor, strawberry White Claw blends strawberry juice concentrate with its hard seltzer formula for a refreshing and refined seltzer. The palate has intense notes of ripe strawberries with a crisp yet smooth finish.
This flavor almost tastes like biting into a champagne-soaked strawberry. It’s a great option for a summertime dinner party.
Tropical Pomelo Smash
In case you’re wondering, pomelo is a type of grapefruit that is the largest species with a sweet yet less juicy flavor profile. The Tropical Pomelo Smash combines pomelo with lime, lemon, and orange flavors.
You’ll get a wonderfully complex flavor palate that starts with a sour nose, followed by a sweet palate, ending with a bitter finish.
There’s no more classic combination than seltzer water and lime juice, which is why the Natural Lime White Claw is a tried and true favorite.
As the name suggests, Natural Lime uses natural lime juice to infuse the hard seltzer with a sour yet sweet citrus flavor. This is a classic flavor that will always be the first to go.
Ruby red grapefruits have a reputation for being the sweetest and juiciest kind of grapefruit. The Ruby Grapefruit White Claw aptly represents the best qualities this fall and winter citrus has to offer.
The flavor profile is sweet and juicy with a slightly bitter finish made refreshing by the carbonation.
Wildberry Acai Smash
The last of the trendy Surf collection, Wildberry Acai Smash, is a sumptuous blend of wild berries including blackberries and the tropical and trendy Acai berry.
Acai lends a rich, almost velvety flavor that reminds me of pomegranate. This flavor is rich and bright at the same time!
Tangerines are smaller citrus fruits with a more concentrated orange flavor, heightened sweetness, and muted finish.
The Tangerine White Claw flavor is the height of orange citrus, its muted finish translating to a crisper, cleaner carbonated finish. This is a great flavor for fall and winter get-togethers. It pairs well with a splash of cranberry juice flavor.
The tartest citrus fruit, lemons rival lime for the most popular drink garnish. The Lemon White Claw offers the tartest flavor profile with the cleanest finish. It’s made with sour lovers in mind.
Not only do you get a zesty, tart flavor, but you also get a distinct lemon palate from lemon zest.
Blackberries are often the odd berry out, taking a backseat to the more popular red berries and blueberries. However, this Blackberry White Claw showcases how good blackberries can be.
Blackberry concentrate is the key to enhancing the tart and slightly sweet flavor profile that makes this seltzer flavor so irresistible.
White Claw Hard Seltzers are a refreshing addition to any happy hour, barbecue, or pool party.
