Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) has announced that it will be expanding its Radler selection in September when it introduces its latest Seasonal Release, Tart Apple Radler.
Using the same process that created fan-favorite Radlers such as Ginger Lemon Radler and Cranberry Orange Radler, Boulevard’s brewers crafted Tart Apple Radler by adding “tart apple juice and just a touch of lemon juice to . . . the Unfiltered Wheat Beer base.” This combination yields “aromas of tart green apple juice backed by a subtle sweetness” and a flavor profile dominated by “slightly puckering apple and lemon” that eventually “[gives] way to a bready malt sweetness and a spritzy finish that wavers between apple, lemon and slight citrus notes from the base beer.” Coming in at an “eminently drinkable and refreshing” 4.1% ABV, Tart Apple Radler “is the ultimate post-activity beer even if you’re doing nothing more strenuous than lifting it to your lips.”
Tart Apple Radler debuts in the Kansas City area on September 4 and will see expanded distribution in the coming weeks. You can expect to find this new Seasonal Release available exclusively in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans at craft beer-friendly retailers in Alabama, Florida, Missouri and all other areas in Boulevard Brewing Co.’s distribution footprint that normally see other Seasonal offerings such as Ginger Lemon Radler, Berliner Weisse and Tough Kitty Milk Stout. Prost!
