Coolship Red

Coolship Red is a blend of spontaneously fermented beer aged on raspberries. This beer is brewed with Pilsner malt, 40% raw wheat and aged hops, then cooled in a traditional coolship and fermented only with the resident microflora. All of the fermentation and aging takes place in French oak wine barrels over several years, with 100 pounds per barrel of fresh Maine raspberries for the final six months. The finished beer is bright-red in color with raspberry and oaky in the aroma. Raspberries dominate the flavor, along with funk and hints of dried apricot. The finish is tart and dry.
