Boulevard Ginger Lemon Radler Season Returns

Boulevard Ginger Lemon Radler Season ReturnsFrom Boulevard:

Yes, Team Radler! It’s time for the season of Ginger Lemon Radler. Brewed annually since 2014, Ginger Lemon Radler signals a return to longer, warmer days and afternoons and evenings spent outside enjoying beers with friends. Beginning on Monday, March 12th, Ginger Lemon Radler will be available on draft in the Boulevard Tours & Rec Center Beer Hall and we’ll have six-packs of cans in our gift shop. Ginger Lemon Radler will become widely available throughout our distribution footprint in the coming weeks. Please note that we do not have access to our distributors’ delivery schedules and will be unable to confirm an exact date when Ginger Lemon Radler will be available near you.

Our take on radler (the German word for cyclist – more on the backstory here) is created using Unfiltered Wheat Beer as the base beer. Following fermentation, the beer is transferred to a blending tank in our fermentation cellar where our brewers add ginger and lemon juice and deaerated, carbonated water (essentially soda water) before prepping the beer for packaging. Since the ginger lemon soda is added post-fermentation, the bright citrusy, spicy flavors remain bold in the finished beer.

Pouring a hazy golden color, Ginger Lemon Radler opens with aromas of fresh lemonade and spicy ginger backed by a subtle sweetness from the Unfiltered Wheat base. Unsurprisingly, ginger and lemon dominate the flavor but give way to a bready malt sweetness and a spritzy finish that wavers between ginger, lemon and slight citrus notes from the base beer. Imminently drinkable and refreshing, Ginger Lemon Radler is the ultimate post-activity beer even if you’re doing nothing more strenuous than lifting it to your lips.
