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.

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.

Bottle via Ernesto from long ago. Thanks for this as it was our New England beer for a tiny Super Bowl party. Shared four ways in inappropriate glassware (UCLA steins). Pours a hazy orange with big white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is very pronounced cranberry and lactic acid notes. Taste is moderate sour with some fruit in the finish. Almost some candy orange peel. Nice but not overly complex.

[ Bottle ][ ½ of 75cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Snifter ][ 9.24.14 ]
Tepid grapefruit body, fizzy white head craters, oily cap. Earthy skin nose, lactic dryness with manure hints, grape-like stickiness. Soft skin flavor, leather, incredibly dry, moderate citric acid that’s softly sour with dryness abounding, high attenuation. Singular, very light profile but no nuance, no depth.

cpetrone84 (1602) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pour is insanely cloudy and murky dark peach with pale peach edges and a white head. Nose has a bit of lactic acid, musky fruits, light rubber, faint berry. Taste is cleaner, just a hint of lacto cream, lots of peach skin mixed with hint of tart cranberry. Creamy body, moderate carbonation. Not really dry, body is a bit creamy.

Bomber in trade. Pours pink, lots of white head, borderline over, but dissipates quickly. Aroma is mix of funk, tartness, and fruit. Even get some wheaty backbone. Very cloudy beer. Taste is light, tart, refreshing, a bit puckering, palette cleanses afterwards. Dont really get the orange vest, but the lacto and cranberries mix nicely, albiet a bit funky. Pretty nice ass beer.

Pink pour with a pinkish-white head. The aroma has some very nice cranberry notes with a bit of orange peel thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get some tart cranberry and wheat notes as well as a hint of citrus. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very drinkable. Great beer.
