This blend of spontaneously fermented beer is aged on local raspberries. We begin brewing Coolship Red with Pilsner malt, 40% raw wheat, and aged whole-leaf hops. The unfermented wort is then transferred to a large shallow pan called a coolship, which allows the hot wort to mingle with wild yeast and souring microbiota in the Maine air. After fermenting and aging in French oak wine barrels for over two years, we add raspberries and let it rest for an additional four to five months. The finished beer is bright red in color with an aroma of raspberry and oak. Its raspberry-forward flavor is balanced by notes of light funk, apricot, and a tart, dry finish.

This spontaneous ale is aged on raspberry and offers up some earthy undertones, including dried black cherry and soft leather. Showing lively carbonation and a touch of acidity, it has a calming effect and finishes almost clean, with a patina of tongue-coating sugar. - JOHN HOLL
