375, heavy champagne bottle with cork and bale. Wow, thanks, B! What a treat. Pours a murky dark rubied garnet with a loose tan head. Forceful tangy sweet tart pie cherry nose with subtle balsamic and white vinegars counterpoints way in the background. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Tangy sweet tart pie cherries on the mid palate as well, soft tart counterpoints from the ferment. Not a lot of base beer showing through anymore. blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Funky and cherry fruity aroma with some light flowery notes. The flavor has a nice funky base, some fruity cherry sweetness, and floral hops. Good stuff. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle share with my buddy Blake and his wife Gina (both sour heads). Pours a nice light brown/reddish color with very minimal head. Good carbonation shown with the pop of the top. Aroma is slightly funky with hints of a good sour time. Flavor isn’t super tart or funky but somewhere in the middle. Not a bad showing here. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2012

On tap at armsby, tart and light, a little thin, some tasty funk in there, tasty cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2012
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. emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2013
On tap at my sick ass Allagash event. Jealous? Should be....
Pours a soft and clean light peach amber with two fingers of creamy eggshell white head. The nose is nice, soft fruits and cherry with a hint of acidity and very slight chalky/vitaminy character. Very very slight wild character. A very nice acidity in the flavor, mostly front of the mouth and it is quick to go. Bright cherry notes in the background, by no means dominant. Some light fruity esters provide support.

Bottle @ a recent tasting... Poured reddish/brown with a moderate forming off-white head. Sour and tart with a dense cherry character that offered balance and sweetness to tartness. Mild mouthfeel, unobtrusive body that allowed the cherry fruits and sourness to shine along with some malt tones. alexsdad06 (10805) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
12.7 ml bottle from jammalamma. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor are tart cherries, additional fruit character, wood, some light funk. I thought everything was there, just looking for a bit more pop.
