Michelob Ultra Citrus Organic Hard Seltzer Goes Down Easy

Michelob Ultra Citrus Organic Seltzer

The supermarkets today are often flooded with products made with heavy amounts of additives and preservatives. Rumor has it that a Twinkie can stay fresh in excess of 25 days. That’s a pretty long shelf life for a snack cake. More and more these days, consumers are looking for organic foods and beverages. These delights are free of preservatives, opting instead to be produced free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial agents. Specifically, organic foods have to be certified to have been grown in soil that has been free of such agents for a minimum of three years. This give the foods a freshness that is sure to impress. In the spiked sparkling water market, one flavor you might have considered trying is Michelob Ultra Citrus Organic Hard Seltzer.

This flavor is nice. There are clear citrus tones as the beverage washes over the palate. As enjoyable as the flavor is, it leaves the consumer wanting more.
