look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Shared bottle.

Pours a not particularly appealing looking hazy amber.

Aroma: Mild funkiness for style. Less off-putting than some others.

Flavor: Fruity and complex taste starts sweet and sour but turns tart and bitter by the finish. Quite tart mid-taste.

Serving type: bottle

North Carolina

4.61/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a very hazy orange-tinged golden color capped by an inch of foam that fades quickly; plenty of dotty lace is left behind

Smell: Lemon, green apple, leather and barnyard

Taste: Lemon and green apple, up front, rather acetic at the outset; develops funk and softer slightly tropical fruit flavors, in the middle; the finish is dry and leathery; the aftertaste is like a really sour white grapefruit

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation and a nice pucker

Overall: What an excellent beer this is after aging it in my cellar for three years; hits on all the right notes

June 2012 bottle. Been cellared since purchasing in Jan 2013. Reviewed Friday from full notes taken at the time.

Allagash Coolship Resurgam 06/21/2012

A- Golden bodied pour to a tulip with a small white head that falls fairly quickly. Fairly hazy appearance as the head dies to absolutely nothing. Lacing is not going to happen.

S- Reminds me of 3F and Cantillon Gueuze in a way. Funky and sour nose reminds me of the most authentic Gueuze. Dusty, sour, oak, lemons and barnyard.

T- Again, it brings back memories of the best Gueuzes I have had. The sours are high but not puckering like Cantillon or Hanssens can be. Lemon zest, barnyard funk, mineral water, stone fruit, oak, white grapes, pear/apple, slight tannins, some acetic and horsey funk. Cheesy cheddar.

MF- Dried out light end body as any Gueuze should have, the consistency is pretty much spot on. Carbonation is at a fairly high level and with each sip it foams up quite a bit. Finishes with tart acid lingering on the palate.

I have to remind myself to get a few bottles next time. I was somewhat strapped for cash when I got this bottle but this is at least on-par with the great Gueuze I have had. Tons of flavor and complexity with a great sourness.
