Blueberry Short Weisse kicks off Smuttynose’s canned Short Weisse series with a New England classic! The clean, tart acidity of Smuttynose Brewing's lactic fermentation process contributes massive refreshment to beer drinkers. Blueberry aging adds not only a striking purple color, but a delicious flavor nuance that’s pure summer. The lightweight can package means you can take this fruity refreshment golfing, hiking, to the beach, or boating. 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 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.
