A - Pours a clear light orange with a small cream-colored, active head that fades to the edges very slowly.

S - Ver tart and acidic, oaky with some pear.

T - Pear, almost honey-like sweetness, tart, acidic oak. Very good and unique.

D - Light body with decent carbonation.

O - Unique flavors, but very welcoming and nice.

not sure if this blend is technically a gueuze or not, but what does it matter? a genius blend of young and old blonde sour beers ages in oak, and the result could not be any more wonderful, not could this series of beers from allagash. murky but really pale blonde color, white hues to it, under a very white and light as a cloud inch of head. it smells incredible, that oaky sourness with a ton of lacto derived acidity that we usually associate with the sours of old world belgium. its that authentic, mix of farmy musty yeastiness and exuberant carbonation that tickles my nose. the flavor is everything you would expect from the style, but with a few special twists. the first is in the finish, which has an almost white grapey flavor to it that balances the acidity, that would otherwise be gargantuan. maybe more of a white cranberry, as it is still tart, but its not what i usually get in lambic types, yet is is extraordinary successful, where ever it comes from. the second little surprise here is the feel. its so well carbonated. sometimes the belgian examples come flat, but i love this level of effervescence in a lambic style, and both coolship series beers ive tried have had it so far. missing nothing, this blended sour is both elegant and extreme, and rivals beers like rueuze for the best made in its category in the united states. i cant remember better.
