Maine Beer Highlight: Allagash Coolship Red

allagash-coolship-redToday my friend Nate and I decided to crack open a bottle of Allagash’s Coolship Red. It seemed appropriate, we were brewing on the first snow day of the year.

I have had one other of Allagash’s Coolship lambics, the Cerise, and this one was very different. The fruit in it was huge, and very, very tart. Quickly on the heels of the tart fruit was the barnyard funk, which complimented the dry tartness quite nicely. The photo doesn’t do the appearance of this beer justice, the red was vibrant to the point of appearing luminescent — amazing.

Hope to see these Coolship lambics commercially available soon from Allagash, they’ve got something special going on there.
