This beer is incredibly to sweet. I wasn't even able to finish it. To sweet and sugary for a beer. Stop making this Founders. Thanks

2013 bottle poured into a snifter. Liquid raspberry jam. Pretty one dimensional; pretty delicious.

It is what it is. Not really for me, too tart sweet. For the style its good, fresh fruit flavor ect, but not what I look for in beer. Would go well with dessert.

Pours a dark red with almost pink head that trails the glass. The smell was full of raspberry to the point where I couldn't make out anything else. The taste was rather pleasant, but very sweet. But the aftertaste lingered way too long with a mouthfeel that was a bit syrupy. A great dessert beer but I can't see myself drinking more than one at a time.
