North Coast Introduces New Seasonal Sour

North Coast Brewing Co. has embraced the centuries old Berliner Weisse style, debuting a new, special release brew this week.

Just in time for the season, Tart Cherry Berliner Weisse is soured using traditional spontaneous lactic fermentation and infused with the juice of Montmorency cherries sourced from orchards in central Michigan.

The brewery states it just had to put it in a clear bottle to show off its springtime blush

The late author & leading authority on beer Michael Jackson described “Berlin White Beer” — known to Napoleon’s troops as “The Champagne of the North” — as having an “insistent sparkle, a fragrant fruitiness in the nose, a sharp, dry palate, and a frisson of quenching, sour acidity in the finish.”
