US-based craft brewery Green Flash Brewing company has launched the first United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified organic wheat beer.

With 4.2% alcohol by volume (ABV), Beter is claimed to be a full-flavored wheat beer that has been infused with acai berries and black tea.

Green Flash Brewing Brewmaster Erik Jensen said: “We mentioned last year that innovation will be a cornerstone for Green Flash, and we believe Saturhaze and Beter hit the low-ABV craft beer trends that consumers are actively seeking and offer the opportunity to bring new drinkers into craft beer.

“Most importantly, however, we feel that these brands authentically fit the Southern Californian coastal lifestyle that is true to Green Flash.”
