look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Vintage: 5/25/2011. Not sure where I got this bottle from, but somehow I have it.

Poured into a Coolship glass, surprising clarity, Champagne-like bubbles feeding a cap of foamy white head that started at about an inch and sank to a thin layer; minor dots of lacing on the glass. Got cloudy as some of the bottom-dwelling yeast made its way into the glass in the second half of the pour. Fruity aroma, citrus and stone fruits, light acid, grassy funk, candi sugar. In the taste, candied grapefruit, wet grass, earth, oak, mild moldy horseblanket, light acidic tartness, and some bready yeast. Maybe a little less tart and a little more sweet than your typical, authentic, Belgian gueuze, but it worked well nonetheless. Drinking very good for 3 years old. Light-medium body, easy drinkability, with a crisp mouthfeel. Nice overall.

Thanks to UWBadgerFan4Life for this beer! Thanks alot chad! This beer has been a long time want!

375ml C&C bottle; bottled on 4/12/2013.

moderately loud pop as cork was removed from the bottle; poured into a Cantillion Wine stem.

Appearance: glowing and moderately hazy golden yellow bodied beer. Thin cap of white head that drops to a ring around the glass.

Smell: This is such a giant funky bomb. Dusty, musty, dirty, wet basement that is a moderate to heavy funkiness.

Taste: Wow. This is a serious funk bomb! Yeast and minerally flavors. Funk is huge. It tastes like wet moldy basement meets dirty sweaty gym socks. Lots of brett notes that are earthy and also slightly fruity. Mild tartness finally kicks in at the end of the beer in the form of acetic notes, oak barrel/general woodiness, and lemon juice.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Soft, supple, and creamy mouthfeel. Semidry finish. Really drinkable. A quick flash of carbonation that eppervesces as it rolls onto the tongue.

Overall: This beer is soooo seriously funky that I think this maybe the funkiest beer that I have drank yet to date. It reminds me alot of Cantillion Classic Gueuze. It might even be significantly funkier than the Cantillion Classic Gueuze. Phenominal mouthfeel on this gueuze! It seems that Allgash has some serious finesse with thier coolship! Gotta be a funk lover to appreciate this brew! This is probably my least favorite of the Allagash Coolships brew that I have sampled, but this beer is still something special. I have a tendancy to lean more towards the fruited coolship brews vs the non fruited coolship brews; thats just my personal preference.
