look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
Got a pack of this because I saw it on the shelves at Wegman's and was something new. I was more than disappointed by Rubeaus and was hoping this would make up for it. Wrong.
12oz bottle poured into Delirium Tremens bubble glass last night.
Bottle Graphics: 2/10.
A: Pinkish light red color with a thin head that lasted pretty long. Carbonation was distant.
S: The smell was not horrible, slightly tart but something unique. The good ended here though. It smelled of true fruit but that did not carry over in the taste. While not a fan of fruit beers, I would rate it high if it was a good version but didn't get it.
T: I just found no real pleasure in the taste of this. It was borderline hard to drink and is up there on the list with Bells Cherry stout. Got some more to share with somebody, I'm positive someone will like this. Being generous, it has a cherry maraschino syrup flavor that is not like real fruit though in any way.
M: I would've expected this to be a bubbly mess but was the opposite, a milky flat mess.
D: Founders is a great brewery, this is not a great beer. This is not a good beer, this was flat out hard to drink.
