Picked up a growler of this at The Beer Store in Southampton - an excellent establishment with an incredible selection and very helpful staff!
Appearance was orange, amber, transparent; what you’d if you combined grapefruit and cherry juice. 2 finger head with little bit of retention.
Smell was the weakest part here, as it was not particularly strong, but the cherries and fruits were evident.
Taste: Cherries, not too sweet, good tartness. The sweetness is reminiscent of pear, the tartness is all cherries and grapefruit. So drinkable, and the tartness just flows with an incredible Lambic-like refreshment. Sweetness increases with temperature, but never dominates. Personal preference: drink it before it gets too sweet.
Medium bodied feel with light carbonation, very pleasant.
Very happy to have a whole growler of this. Not comparable to an unfiltered Belgian kriek as far as my taste for cherry beers, but a very drinkable cherry. Founders wins again!
Serving type: growler

The pour is a dark blood red with a head that has a pink hue. Nose is cherries, green vegetables, and stale cereal. Taste is a bit stronger cherry, gets a touch medicinal. Finish is slightly tart, a big syrupy body and moderate carbonation. Not the best fruited beer.
