Notes / Commercial Description:
Coolship Resurgam is a blend of both old and young unfruited spontaneous beer. The name comes from the motto of our fair city, Portland, Me. It means "I shall rise again". Coolship Resurgam won a Silver medal at the 2010 GABF.

a blend of this one-, two-, and three-year old spontaneously fermented beer. The finished beer has aromas of apricot, lemon zest, and candied fruit. Notes of tropical fruit and flavors of funk lead to a clean, tart and dry finish.

Very solid offering from Allagash. I actually prefer this to the Coolship Red. Tastes of citrus with some additional smokiness. Pricey, but a solid beer and worth a taste.

Perhaps the best spontaneously fermented beer available in the US, and one of a handful of wild ales I consider MUST DRINK when new batches are released. Absolutely outstanding, near-flawless execution.

Aged for a year

L -- Slightly hazed golden orange body with a tiny white head produced with moderate pour. Minimal retention or lacing
S -- Nice balance of fruity and funky. Lots of aromatic orchard fruits, barnyard, perfumey floral. Reminds me of Cantillon's gueuze
T -- Barnyard funk, wet hay, bitter lemon peel, musk, hint of tropical fruit. Predominantly bretty with maybe a hint of pedio. Very delicate and complex
F -- Medium- mouthfeel, high carb. Moderate tartness and a clean finish
O -- A nice, funk-forward representation of a Belgian classic. Pricey, but you get what you pay for

85/100
