Cloudy apricot orange pour, fluffy white head. Thanks to LtDan for the share! Good guy. Aroma is sour, some citrus sourness, lemons, sour cherries and unripe stone fruit. Flavor is certainly sour, cherries, yeasty funk, light vinegary notes. Pretty damn nice stuff!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Bottle @ Stephen’s house, courtesy of Lukaduke (I believe). Thanks a bunch! Pours a somewhat hazy, bright orange appearance with a very small, off white head. Quite spicy, fairly floral, tangy pie cherry, somewhat funky, fairly yeasty aroma- not nearly as complex or interesting as Coolship Cerise Kind of juicy, tart, sort of like black cherry, slightly tart, pie cherry, slightly sour, kind of woody, toasty malty flavor. Not nearly as much going on as some as the Coolship releases.
