Bottle purchased from Bruisin' Ales in Asheville, NC.

Pours a hazy orange-red color with a half-finger light red head. The head dissipates into a wispy layer on top leaving light lacing.

Smells of slightly tart and mildly sweet cherries with just a hint of malt aromas peeking through. As the beer warms the cherry aromas take over even more than they already had.

Tastes similar to how it smells. The cherry flavors are a bit darker but the same light tartness is still there. Ending is a bit on the sweet side and lingers for a small while.

Mouthfeel is good. It has a decent thickness with solid carbonation.

Drinkability is alright. I didn't have a problem finishing the bottle but I'm not sure about another.

Overall this beer is what it is. A solid cherry beer. Worth a shot if you're in the mood.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. I'm always excited to see new offerings from Founder's so I've been looking forward to trying this one.

A- Founder's Cerise has an interesting look to it. Pours a clear light red/pink with a large fluffy pinkish white head.
S- Lots of cherries.
T- Sweet, tart cherries. Subtle light malty background.
M- Crisp.
D- I'm not quite sure what to do with a beer like this. It's a little bit too sweet to be sessionable, and it's not exactly refreshing but seems like it would be good on a hot day potentially. Probably some interesting food pairings could be thought up.

my bottom line: It's like Sam Adam's Cherry Wheat, but good. A 4-pack my girlfriend and I can agree on.
