Tröegs Independent Brewing has announced the release of Razza Squeeze, a new beverage alternative that the Hershey, PA, brewery has dubbed a “Sparkling Fruit Refresher.”
A first for Tröegs, Razza Squeeze is a gluten-reduced, all-natural flavored malt beverage made with organic fruit.
Fresh, juicy organic raspberries are the focal point of Razza Squeeze, the company says, while the addition of real limes adds a twist of zesty citrus to the flavor.
“It definitely doesn’t drink like a beer,” says John Trogner, Tröegs brewmaster and co-founding brother. “It tastes like fruit picked at the peak of freshness.”
Razza Squeeze caters to health-conscious drinkers or those with gluten sensitivity who are looking for an alternative to beer, cider, seltzer and other hard beverages.
To reduce the gluten content to less than 10 PPM (parts per million), the brewing team at Tröegs devised a blend of jasmine puffed rice and ancient grain barley.
Razza Squeeze is 4.5% ABV, with no added sugar or high-fructose corn syrup.The post Tröegs Razza Squeeze first appeared on Beverage Dynamics.
