750 ml bottle into a tulip.
quite carbonated but not too badly after you open it. pours a light murky red with a nice carbonated head. warning! pour completely horizontally! smell is quite tart and the cranberries are very apparent. taste starts out very tart then the cranberry flavor comes through...but that in itself is quite tart as well.finishes with a lasting awesome classical berliner style kick...just lovely. higher carbonation, light body.
overall just another home run from my new favorite brewery!

Reviewing the Cran Bu Weisse from De Garde Brewing out of Tillamook, Oregon.
2014 vintage bottle served in a Dark Lord snifter and enjoyed on 03/12/14.
Appearance: Pours a cloud, dull pink color with nice fade and minimal head. Minimal lacing and retention too. I really dig the color. 4.25/5
Smell: Cranberries, vinegar, oak, a hint of lemon and a kiss of fruit juice and lacto. Really nice mix here, with a prominent cranberry character and juiciness. 4.5/5
Taste: Tastes like mildly tart cranberry juice with complexities of oak, lemon, grape skins, wheat and a touch of fruit. Less lacto than the nose, which is mostly constrained to the initial upfront kick of flavor. The flavor profile on this brew is a nicely balanced mix that is sessionable and flavorful, but not too big or overpowering. Finishes with lasting cranberry flavor with a lemon twist. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, nice carbonation. Light tartness, a little fruitiness and sweetness. Very juicy mouthfeel. 4.5/5
Overall: Another excellent fruited variant of "Bu." They're all pretty great, though my favorites thus far have been Raspberry and Boysenberry. Seek this out if you get the chance.
Cost: $11 for a 500 ml bottle.
