Heineken Unveils 'Edelweiss' Blonde Beer

Heineken is to launch a new blonde beer in France.

The brewer is confident that Edelweiss, will help it claw market share away from Kronenbourg and Carlsberg, according to a report in Le Monde.

The slogan of the new product will be 'From the Alps'. Edelweiss is a white mountain flower somewhat synonymous with the mountain range, thanks in part to the classic 1965 musical, The Sound of Music. It is often used as a symbol for Austria.

Heineken intends the marketing of Edelweiss to be more location-specific than some of the other drinks in its portfolio. It also represents a response the ongoing global popularity of craft beers.
