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.

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.

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.

Bottle, batch 2, thanks Felipe! Gusher on opening. Pours super cloudy, almost milky, pink lemonade, with huge pink head that dissipates slowly leaving good lacing. Aroma is funky, basement, fruity, perhaps cherry. Flavor is light sweet drying out quickly, medium tart and a light plus funkiness that pervades the beer. Fruity, lemon, Brett notes. Lightish body, super high carbonation - you will be wise to let this one sit a bit after pouring.

750 received in trade... Pours a hazy pink... Sorta looks like watered down Strawberry Quik... Not necessarily a bad think. Pretty traditional Berliner qualities, tart lemon, lightly bready.. the cranberry IMO almost softens the Berliner notes and adds to the drinkability... there is a hint of orange zest that adds to the overall complexity and makes me appreciate it that much more.

Bottle @ His Great Return Tasting. Again, cheers to Leighton for bringing the best of New England. The pour’s slightly hazy pink with a small head. Herb-rubbed grapefruit meat on the nose. Almost dank sticky herb flavors. Grass, a touch of lemony acidity. Grapefruit meat. Strong personality. Light body, soft carbonation. OK, sort of messy.
