Blackberry vines are a nuisance. They can take over a garden in a matter of weeks. Their thorny stalks seem to have limitless growth. However, when summer wanes and autumn rolls out, perfect, purple berries dot those horrid vines, and those blackberry stalks produce some of the sweetest, most delicious berries in the world. In the Pacific Northwest, blackberry season often only lasts a couple of months. You can always see people picking blackberries along roadsides during the short span of time the berries are plump and ready to be consumed. Blackberries provide a subtle sweetness with a hint of tartness. Blackberries also pair perfectly with lemonade. White Claw Refreshr Blackberry with a Hint of Red Cherry capitalizes upon this nice combination of flavors. We decided to test this hard seltzer, and here is what we found.

Blackberry and Lemonade Come Together

Lemonade is the main flavor with all White Claw Refreshr hard seltzers. With this one, in particular, White Claw infused blackberry and a hint of cherry into the lemonade. If you love berries and lemonade, then this is a hard seltzer you should consider trying. The blackberry flavor is light and a good complement to the lemonade. The red cherry may not be everyone’s flavor preference, but for many, the hint of cherry taste is a nice addition. There is plenty of flavor with the White Claw Refreshr Blackberry with a Hint of Red Cherry. However, it is less sweet than many other berry-inspired hard seltzers especially for a lemonade-based hard seltzer.

Natural Flavors Mixed With 5% ABV

With only 5% ABV, there is a subtle kick of alcohol. Each can has 100 calories. There is also only 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of carbs in total. White Claw Refreshr Blackberry with a Hint of Red Cherry is also gluten-free. This adult beverage is made with purified carbonated water, alcohol, natural flavors, citric acid, cane sugar, natural lemon juice concentrate, and sodium citrate. The natural flavors are prominent. Not only can you notice a natural taste, but there is a nice berry aroma that is quite pleasant as well. Perhaps the best part about this hard seltzer by White Claw is the natural flavor, which is noticeable. It never feels fake or artificially flavored while you drink it. White Claw Refreshr Blackberry with a hint of Red Cherry is a great choice if you want a fruit-inspired hard seltzer that is less sweet. 

A Balanced Hard Seltzer That is Not Overwhelming With Flavor
