You're going to need a bigger cooler if you expect to fit all these drinks. On top of these new flavors, the brand also added White Claw Iced Tea to its lineup for a nice classic casual drink to sip by the poolside.

In a statement to the Michigan news outlet MLive, the chief marketing officer John Shea described the motivation behind the new flavor releases.

“White Claw has experienced tremendous growth, and consumers have an insatiable appetite for new products,” said John. “So, for us, it was a simple decision to give fans new options they crave with the same great tasting flavor profile we know they love from White Claw.”

Influencers have already had a chance to test out the new flavors and have been praising the taste and look of the new releases.

"Have you tried the new @whiteclaw flavors yet? Blackberry, Strawberry, and Pineapple are brand new, and they are delicious cheers!" wrote one Florida beer influencer.

While another Philadelphia alcohol shop showed off the fresh look of the super-sized surge flavors.

White Claw also offers black cherry, watermelon, tangerine, lemon, raspberry, ruby grapefruit, and natural lime, which are available individually, in six-packs, or 12-packs.
