Spiked Seltzer Meets Lemonade

Last year, Truly added hard lemonade to its lineup. Now, Bud Light has introduced Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade to the mix. So, how does Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade compare to Truly Lemonade? Here’s what you need to know.

They Have Similar Flavors Available

Both Truly Lemonade and Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade only come in four flavors, three of which are the same: Original, Strawberry, and Black Cherry. Truly Lemonade also comes in Mango while Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade has Peach.

Both Have 5% ABV

Truly Lemonade and Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade have the same amount of alcohol in each can. This is true of most hard seltzers on the market, which are also 5% ABV.

They’re Equally Sweet

You’re going to notice a trend here: Both Truly Lemonade and Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade have about one gram of sugar per can. Again, this is comparable to other hard seltzer brands, which have similar sugar content.

Both Use Actual Lemons

Truly’s lemonade is made with real lemon juice, per a press release. In Bud Light’s announcement, they said they combined seltzer with real lemonade to make their spiked seltzer lemonade.

Both Are Only Available In Variety Packs

You won’t be able to pick up a 12-pack of Truly Lemonade Mango or Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade in Peach as both brands only offer their lemonade in variety packs. Each 12-pack comes with three cans of each flavor.

You Have Even More Options

Mike’s Hard Lemonade recently joined the spike seltzer game with their new lemonade seltzer. If you prefer beer, Natty Light’s Naturdays combines their beer with lemonade and comes in two flavors: Strawberry Lemonade and the new Pineapple Lemonade.

Which Is Better?

It’s really a matter of personal preference since Truly Lemonade and Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade are basically identical on paper. Guess that just means you’ll need to conduct a spiked seltzer lemonade tasting of your own.
