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.

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

2017 release.

A: Pours medium pale with some orange tint, a half finger of very fine, bright white head. Pretty good retention and minimal lacing. Champagne-like bubbles.

S: Orange flesh with moderate smoke/char (?), light floral and funk.

T: Pretty floral with some light citrus and moderate funk to round things out on a long finish. A little smoke. Moderate pucker that’s balanced by the other elements. Pretty dry.

M: Medium-light body with medium, somewhat prickly carbonation.

O: Pretty tasty, floral-ish funky/sour beer. Nice hot weather beer.

Pours light straw with light foamy head, loads of microbubbles. Very aromatic, strong aromas of funk, apricot, lemon. Very tasty, tart and funky, crisp, dry finish. Efverescent mouthfeel. Overall a very enjoyable beer.
