Wild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will kick off its new Smoothie Supernova Series with the Taproom Exclusive Release of Smoothie Supernova – Raspberry Lemonade on Friday, June 26.
Releasing as “Wild Leap’s first-ever taproom only release and brew designed to taste like a beer smoothie,” Smoothie Supernova – Raspberry Lemonade is a Smoothie-style Ale blended with “vast amounts” of lemon and raspberry purée. Coming in at 5.5% ABV, the “tart and sweet” Smoothie Supernova – Raspberry Lemonade has a “consistency [that is] thick and creamy, but sippable, so no straw is necessary.”
“Brewing a beer with huge fruit additions is something we’ve always wanted to do,” says Chris Elliott, Wild Leap’s Chief Brewing Officer. “Our recent expansion allowed us the capability to offer these unique beers as a to-go options. We now have larger tanks and the ability to run the beer through our can line.
“Because of the large additions of fruit added after fermentation, we’re strongly recommending that the beers are kept at refrigeration temperatures at all times and consumed within 14 days of the packaging date on the bottom of the can,” explains Elliott.
Smoothie Supernova – Raspberry Lemonade is releasing exclusively in Wild Leap’s taproom on June 26 and online ordering is available now so that you can easily arrange curbside pickup. This Limited Release offering will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft for as long as supplies last. Due to the amount of fruit added after fermentation and the beer’s limited shelf life, Smoothie Supernova – Raspberry Lemonade will not see distribution. Prost!
