Pours a translucent orange with thin white head and minimal retention. The nose has some nice deep funk working with heavy wet oak, notes of brett, and lemon lemon zest. The flavor matches the nose with a moderate level of tartness, a well balanced funk, and a crisp citrusy finish. The mouthfeel is spot on as it has very high carbonation which makes for a spritzy feel and matches the tartness nicely. This makes for a refreshing finish. Overall, this is a nice and authentic tasting gueuze.

Wow. Easily the closest thing to a gueze that I've had from America. This is phenomenal.

This is my first Coolship series beer. Definitely the best I've had to date from Allagash and has at least a fighting chance against the great Belgian Gueuzes. Pleasing gold in the glass. The nose is understated funk and lemons. Flavor of citrus, pith, oak and a little funk. It's a classy affair and perhaps a too little well-behaved. Not quite as bold and complex as your Cantillons or 3Fs. Miss those wild horse, cheese rind and wet hay notes that keep you on your toes. Still, a really nice beer.

Poured from a caged and corked into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass.

Color is clear gold with amber highlights.

Aroma is funky fruit. A slight earthiness is noticeable at the end.

Taste is tart with sweet fruit notes a wonderful dry finish kinda like a rich funky cheese.

Give me more, and more and more
