5.2% ABV • IBU 10

Blackberry Short Weisse is the fourth entry in Smuttynose’s canned Short Weisse series (and the first of the Wild Card entries) in March, 2017. The clean, tart acidity of their lactic fermentation process contributes massive refreshment to beer drinkers. Aging the beer on blackberries adds a delicious flavor nuance that’s pure berry deliciousness. The lightweight can package means you can take this fruity refreshment anywhere or just keep a few on hand for spring yard work. Smuttynose Short Weisse beers are made with a time consuming two-part fermentation process that happens in both the brewhouse and the fermenter. The first stage takes place in the kettle with a dose of the house lactobacillus, a bacteria that’s a key component in making yogurt and sour cream. The second phase takes place in the fermenter with a German-style hefeweizen yeast. This time consuming process means they can only make limited amounts of Short Weisse beers.
