Absolutely fantastic. The body is a bold bright red, the nose funk and sweet raspberry, and flavors are firm berry tartness, strong oak, and almost sea salt. Coolship red is a true pleasure.

2015 vintage. Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a maroon, cloudy body with a small pink head that reduces to leave a ring of retention.

Aromas are out of this world, heavy raspberry and tart lactic, funky and light oak. berries to the max! On the tongue it’s lightly tart and effervescent, dry raspberries and yeasty funk, maybe a bit of oak on the finish. Crisp easy drinker, light body. Finish is yeasty.

Too sour to find the nuances in this beer. Seems like a load of fruit but unable to really appreciate it because of the intense warhead-esqe pucker. Also, overly carbonated for my taste.
