Cherry Short Weisse

Bright, Tart and Refreshing!

Cherry Short Weisse is the third entry in Smuttynose’s canned Short Weisse series in December, 2016. The clean, tart acidity of our lactic fermentation process contributes massive refreshment to beer drinkers. Aging the beer on cherries adds a delicious flavor nuance that’s pure holiday deliciousness. The lightweight can package means you can take this fruity refreshment hiking, sledding or just right to your comfy chair. 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 our 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 we can only make limited amounts of Short Weisse beers.
