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.

Pours ruby into a tulip. White head quickly dissipates to nothing. Lactic cranberry aromas. Sharp with sweet citrus and cranberry upfront turning to band aids before the lasting marshmallow and lactic finish.

Bottle (750 ml) at tasting. Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Clear pale salmon-golden with a spase bubbly white head leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is a pretty nice mix of cranberries and lemon along herbal notes, floral presence and a touch of oak. Taste is moderately acidic (and surprisingly soft for a Night Shift Weisse) with cranberries and lemon upfront. Hebal presence is even more noticeable than in the aroma whil the oak is a little less. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. A pretty solid Berliner Weisse with a good integration of the cranberries. Quenching and there’s some complexity as well.

Pours a clear onion skin/rosé with sparse bubbles on top that leaves no lacing. Nose is of cranberry, wine and oak. Taste is moderately acidic (but still quite a bit more than you average berliner weisse) and clean with some nice cranberry flavors. Lactic. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is tannic/vinous. Overall a pretty nice (and soft by Night Shift’s standard) berliner weisse. I’d surely drink that again!

Bottle shared. Light pink pour with vanishing foamy white head. Aroma is fruity, light funky notes, light leafy notes, light pepper. Taste is quite puckering, fruity but intensely sour, tons of lemon juice, cranberry. Palate is light bodied, light carbonation, bone dry. Good, a bit harsh.

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.
