Enjoyed on draft at Founders on Harvest Day.

Harvest Ale pours a clear, brassy shade of gold with a soapy, 1-finger head. The aroma is where this one shines: light orange, white peaches, apple skin, pine, and caramel. Smells fantastic, fruity, herbal, and almost tea-like. Taste is very citrusy, with distinct flavors of sugary lemon, orange, and grapefruit. But it's a slightly sweet, rather than bitter, citrus flavor that's very refreshing. There's a strong hop presence, but it's flowery, muted, and lightly piney. The mouthfeel is just right: medium-bodied, medium-carbed, and slightly dry.

Founders nailed this one…my favorite in the harvest ale genre.

Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a fairly clear straw yellow color. There was a small white head and it left some lacing. The aroma is a bit milder. Some malts, citrus and earthy hops, and slightly musty. The taste is good. Nice malt body. Somewhat tart/bitter flavor. Some pine and lemon hops. Nice.
