Looks like cherry 7up. Really clear and sparkly red appearance. Small white head that dissipates. Very nice.
Clean raspberry scent. No overpowering funkiness. Even has a cherry 7up smell to it.
Strong pithy bitterness. Seems to be the theme with Allagash's funk. Raspberry flavor is there but not as strong as I would like. Seems like more of a balanced fruit lambic. Seedy raspberry taste. Fairly light in acidity. Refreshing. Tannic like bitterness on the finish is a little overwhelming.
This was nice to drink but it lacked in many areas.

amazing brew here, as authentic a lambic as i have gotten from the united states, its sour, dry, funky, and unlike even some of the best belgian ones, it is beautifully carbonated. the use of raspberries here is lovely as well, not as intense as say an atrial rubicite, but used more elegantly and refined in a special way. the bright pink color of this is gorgeous, while the white head on it is fluffy and permanent, with a certain enticing character. it smells as good as any raspberry beer out there, tart from the fruit, but also very sour from the wild yeasts and critters, which manifest themselves in an acidic and lactic mouthwatering aroma. the flavor is sour beer first, raspberry next, but the fruit stays all the way through the finish and slings to the edges of my mouth as the rest of it is dried out completely. such a clean finish for a beer this flavorful. the yeast profile is amazing, as good as any, thats the point of this coolship project from what i understand, to make very authentic and delicious wild yeast ales, this is so punchy and juicy and sour and awesome, i wish they would distribute to colorado, what a gem this beer is. nearly flawless on the overall, i cant think of a single thing i would change.
