4.01/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 1/18/2011

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a huge head, couldn't get the entire bottle poured because of the amount of head, fades wicked fast though and don't leave a bit of lacing on the glass or any cap on top.

Smell has a bit of a vinegar and cherry sour/tart aroma, a touch of musty funk on the nose as well.

Taste starts out with a acidic vinegar front, the tart cherry adds a bit of complexity and flavor which is much needed, finishes with a musty funky aftertaste and a bit of grapefruit, semi-dry finish, medium sour puckerness.

4.64/5  rDev +8.2%
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
