Coolship Cerise’s tart, dry profile is rounded out by notes of fresh-picked cherry, pie spice, oak, and a hint of apricot. To make this beer, we fill our coolship—a large, shallow pan-like brewing vessel—with unfermented wort that gathers wild yeast as it cools. The beer then ferments and develops its flavor in oak wine barrels for up to two years before we add 100 pounds, per barrel, of locally grown Montmorency and Balaton cherries. We hope you enjoy this balanced, crisp, and complex taste of Maine.
