Wikipedia: Zima (drink)
Zima Clearmalt is a clear, lightly carbonated alcoholic beverage made and distributed by the Coors Brewing Company. Introduced in 1993, it was marketed as an alternative to beer, an example of what is now often referred to as a cooler, with 4.7–5.4% alcohol by volume. Its production in the United States ceased in October 2008, but it is still marketed in Japan. On June 2, 2017, MillerCoors announced a limited release of Zima for the U.S. market. It was sold again in the U.S. in summer 2017 and summer 2018, and did not return in 2019.

Why is White Claw trending?  Why would anyone drink it?  It’s basically just Zima for Zoomers.
