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.

Here it is. Beer review 1000. 10 years later. I have been reading about the coolship series since I started trading beer years ago and was never able to get my hands on it. I am obsessed with the process. I picked this beer up at Allagash in June and reserved it for this moment.

A- body is a dynamically cloudy golden yellow hue. Pours with a 1-2 finger frothy white head that quickly fades almost completely.

S- Nose is soft, funky, and complex. Lemon, cheesecloth, vanilla, oak. I don't get much apricot or candied fruit.

T- Flavor is soft upfront with a hint of lemon and funk. The finish is somewhat intensely funky with soft vanilla, citrus, and oak. What lingers is a lot of funky bitterness.

M-medium to high carbonation and a somewhat dry medium weight body. The body gets smoother as you pour more of the bottom into the glass.

O- overall this is a very good, traditional tasting gueze. I was expecting a little bit more smoke and mirrors...but this is a solid, completely classy offering by Allagash.

For a beer that is brewed with no yeast, it's incredibly active. If you like the sour funky beers, I highly recommend!
