White Claw Surf Citrus Yuzu SmashWhite Claw Surf Citrus Yuzu Smash Creates the Ambience for a Party Like Never Before

You’ve probably never heard of the Yuzu fruit. That shouldn’t make you feel bad. Many people have never heard of these beautiful little citrus fruits because they are seldom grown or used outside of Japan. But despite the Yuzu fruit’s relative lack of popularity outside Japan, it is still pure culinary gold that you’ll love to taste. Yuzu is a sour, tart, and very fragrant citrus. The fruit’s flavor is reminiscent of somewhere between an oro blanco grapefruit and a classic Eureka lemon. The Yuzu fruit’s unique flavor and fragrance make it stand out from other citrus. Consuming Yuzu fruits is a great way to immerse yourself in Japanese cuisine. But how do you even find it outside Japan? In comes the White Claw Surf Citrus Yuzu Smash, a hard seltzer that incorporates yuzu flavor. We tested it, and here’s what we found.

Pure Deliciousness in a Can

There’s no better way to describe White Claw Surf Citrus Yuzu Smash than by its delicious taste. Just like the yuzu fruit, this hard seltzer is sweet and refreshing. Its lemon taste makes it an excellent drink for hot afternoons at the beach. That doesn’t mean you can’t introduce it to your party. Its citrus smell is not overpowering, but it still gently permeates the atmosphere. Every sip leaves a lingering lemony taste that urges you to drink on. There’s a hint of something minty in the end, leaving you with a cool sensation even after your drink.

Big Flavor, Small Impact

We love the taste of White Claw Surf Citrus Yuzu Smash, but what stands out more is how it delivers this taste without impacting too much on your diet. White Claw makes this Citrus Yuzu Smash Hard Seltzer with purified carbonated water, alcohol, natural flavors, citric acid, cane sugar, sodium citrate, and natural lemon juice from concentrate. Its great carbonation makes it a beauty to watch in a wine glass. You can drink a few more cans after the first. After all, the 100 calorie content and 0 sugar content mean it won’t have much impact. Its 5% ABV content is also relatively mild, so you can enjoy your evening without fear of a hangover.

A Refreshing Seltzer Experience

White Claw Surf Citrus Yuzu Smash is a sensational collision of the signature lemon flavor mixed with exotic Yuzu. The two combine to give an unbelievable and uniquely refreshing taste. Whether you’re drinking it on a chilly winter morning or at the peak of summer, something about this drink urges you on. It is very citrusy and bursts with lemon, instantly refreshing you. It is a great addition to a beachside BBQ party. Don’t be surprised if all your guests suddenly begin to demand this drink. It is worth every penny you’ll spend to buy it.
