COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Berliner Weisse style sour ale aged on Cape Cod cranberries and Florida oranges
A lively, playful sour, Cape Codder Weisse sips like a tart beer cocktail. With tangy flavors of berry, citrus, grassy wheat, and ripe cranberry, this is a great beer to brighten any dark winter evening. Over 150 pounds of fresh cranberries were boiled and poured into each batch, giving the beer its distinctive coral-like color. A few days before bottling, we added fresh orange zest to the fermenter. Drink this bottle fresh, or age it for complexity.

Bottle - Pours light opaque red. Smells of butt and butter. Taste is tart, acidic, slight cranberry. And down the drain it goes!

Pink color with tinged of orange. I smell butter but the flavor doesn’t show it much. Sour fruit, berries, oranges. Pretty good.

July 4th rate #10 poured a pining red color from the bottle with aromas of light tart cranberries, lemon, tart wheat. Flavors are tart cranberries and sourness not over the top but solid.

Poured from a bottle dated January 2015. Aroma is somewhat acidic with some lactic and citrus notes. Medium cranberry and a light orange zest note. Some light wheat notes. A bit of a buttered popcorn character, but I?m not positive its diacetyl as opposed to a weird fruit thing. Pours a slightly cloudy, pinkish red with a medium large, somewhat thin, slightly pink head that exhibits decent retention. Faint lacing and small legs. Flavor is fairly acidic with a medium light lactic note. Some moderate citrus notes, lemon and orange. Moderately strong cranberry character with some nice juiciness. Faint bitterness and light wheat notes. Juiciness definitely adds a bit of a buttered popcorn character, but again I?m not sure its diacetyl. Mouthfeel is medium light to light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astrinhjecy and low alcohol warmth. Overall, in some ways this is better than the fruited de Garde Bu?s. The acidity is nicer with some less sharpness but a better roundness. The fruit notes are less jammy but more juicy. I finally figured it out - it kind of reminds me of the Jose Cuervo Strawberry Margarita mix.

750 ml bottle dated January 2015 provided by T.J. Nice pink, clear color, no head. Aroma is tart cranberry, funky yeast, and light plastic.

The center has some funky yeast with a tart sharp fruit in the finish. Some sharp acidic notes after the sip, traces of yogurt. Lemon juice and light citrus rind. Well, overall I am not a fan of sours but for a Berliner is only ok.

750. Thanks Brian. Pour is light pink, a small head forms. Smells interesting. a bit of baby diaper and shoes. cranberry, lacto and wheat. Well, it’s very sour. cranberry comes through at the middle and finish just as the sour goes away. good body, nice mouthfeel. lots and lots of cranberry. crisp, melon as well. just so darn sour.

Hazy pink pour with a slight white head. Buttery fruit nose. Not bad, just odd. Nice tartness. Cranberry fruit. Lactic with a hint of acetic. Refreshing. Citrus bite in the finish.

SF5! Pours a pale slightly pink with a very slight head. Flavor is very tart, lightly fruity. Matches the aroma. Tart and refreshing, begs for hot weather.
