Coolship Bardus

In one of our very first trials with bottling spontaneously fermented beer back in 2010, we blended Coolship beer aged on cherries with a bit of Coolship beer from our very first batch. Aiming for a slow, deliberate refermentation, we let it sit. And sit. Until the beer was almost lost to time. In 2019, we remembered, and pulled it back out to taste: delicious and still. Coolship Bardus presents complex notes of cherry, apricot, and light funk. As a “lazy beer”—which is what some Belgian Lambic brewers call a beer that is slow to referment—Coolship Bardus is lightly carbonated, at most. Enjoy this taste of Allagash history, today.
