Coolship Cerise

Spontaneously Fermented Ale Aged with Cherries

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 two pounds per gallon of Maine-grown Montmorency and Balaton cherries. We hope you enjoy this balanced, crisp, and complex taste of Maine.

What's a Coolship?

Using a centuries-old Belgian brewing tradition, we're able to achieve a complex, and delicious, style of beer with the help of wild yeast floating in the Maine air.
