look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy pink lemonade capped by an inch of lavender foam; quick fading and dotty lacing

Smell: Funky cherry tartness, with hints of grapefruit pith and meringue

Taste: The sweet cherry fruit dazzles the tip of the tongue but as the liquid passes over the rest of the tastebuds, lactic sourness kicks in along with barnyard funk and buttery oak; quite acetic in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation; tingling acidity

Overall: I restrained myself for quite some time before trying out my bottles from the Coolship series - this is quite a grand first impression; excellent fruit supported by just the right level of tartness for my palate

Thanks, troughnbrew, for the opportunity

This has a light peach color with a clean filtered appearance. The head was a bit red with a light bubbly fizz.

The aroma is off as I catch a musky body odor, a tart sour, honey and tomato ketchup.

For what I caught in the nose I detect none in the taste. The flavor is tart with a cherry and vanilla followed by a minerally earthiness.

The feel is smooth dry with little carbonation and a gritty mineral texture.

Very odd beer here but it's flavor is good enough for a try. Just don't breathe in too deeply when you put your nose in the glass.
