Review: Jeremiah Weed Flavored Malt Beverages



Jeremiah Weed’s Sweet Tea Flavored Vodka is one of my all-time favorite drinks. If you’re a sweet tea lovers, you should duck out of work early and go buy a bottle. And if you’re an Arnold Palmer fan, mix the vodka with some lemonade – Nothing beats it on a hot summer night!

Like I said, I just can’t get enough of this stuff.. So when Jeremiah Weed recently introduced their line of flavored malt beverages, I was first in line to try all three different flavors. 😀

The 12 and 23.5-ounce canned beverages (each at 5.8% ABV) provide a new twist to the JW brand. Weed’s malt beverages offer an alternative to beer, all while ensuring you get a beverage that embodies the free-spirited lifestyle synonymous with the Jeremiah Weed name.

The Flavors:

  • Roadhouse Tea – Inspired by the beloved Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea vodka
  • Lightning Lemonade – Reminiscent of a refreshing southern favorite
  • Spiked Cola – Real cola taste with a mild hint of bourbon flavor

First up was the Roadhouse Tea. I was really excited for this, as it’d be a great to have a portable version of my favorite drink. So did it live up to my expectations?

Yes and No. It’s actually quite good, but it’s not the same as Jeremiah Weed’s Sweet Tea Vodka. In their defense, they do state that it’s inspired by their Sweet Tea, and not a substitute for the real thing. If I’m at a concert and I want to cool off after a sweaty moshing session, I’d buy one in a second! But if I’m entertaining at home, I want the real deal!

Next up was the Lightning Lemonade. I wasn’t sure what to expect, as generally canned Lemonade isn’t that great.

I thought it tasted a lot like Mike’s Hard Lemonade. And while some people love Mike’s (my girl is one of ’em), I’m not a fan. It’d probably be a hit with the 20-something girls at your party, but it’s not something I would drink again.

And finally, we get to the Spiked Cola. I’ve been known to order a Jack & Coke on occasion, so I was hoping for something similar from the Spiked Cola.

Unfortunately, the mix was a bit too strong for my liking. The marketing claims it has a mild hint of bourbon flavor, but mine was REALLY strong. If you’re someone that likes their drinks on the strong side, you’re going to love this! But if you’re just looking for cola with a spash of alcohol, this isn’t for you.

It really comes down to personal preferences, as malt beverages aren’t for everyone. (I still can’t believe I used to drink Zima back in the 90s!)

Have you tried any of these drinks? If so, we’d love to hear what you thought of them!

    I tried the Lightning Lemonade this past weekend. I actually bought a six pack of the stuff. It was alright I suppose. I don’t think I would buy it again. I am not really sure what I was expecting when I purchased it.

      I agree entirely about the Lightning Lemonade. I’ve had worse to drink, but I will not be buying this again of my own accord.

    Bought the cola and the tea just to give them a try. The cola was ok I guess but you could buy a coke or pepsi, put in a shot of whiskey and have a far better drink at one fourth the cost. The tea was one of the worst drinks I’ve ever had. Took three sips and then poured it down the drain. Nasty!!

    I am a big fan of the Roadhouse Tea definitely my favorite malt drink out there right now!! If you generally do not like sweet tea then I would not recommend it for you.

    I’ve tried the Cola and the Tea. The Cola is pretty good, but like someone else said you might as well just make the real deal. The Tea however is awesome! I love this stuff. There is no alcohol bite at all. It’s really smooth.
