look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On-tap at the Brewster DeCicco's. Gotta drink something while waiting for CBS to come on.

A: Clear ping grapefruit body with a thin, fleeting white head. Uninspiring, but a nice color.

S: Cherries, cherry skin, and some toasty malt. Expected, and kind of boring.

T: Husky malt starts things off rather disappointingly, with the pure cherry juice following close behind. Sweet, sticky finish. Meh.

M: Light, frothy, and sticky. Ok.

O: This isn't a bad beer by any stretch, but it's definitely on the low end of the Founders scale. I enjoyed the cherry component, but the graininess of the base beer was just too distracting, and not enjoyable. There are far better fruit beers out there, but there are also plenty that are worse.

Cheers!

Reviewed from notes:

appearance: copper orange with minimal head

smell: cherries, malts, sweetness

taste: cherries, sour, tart,

mouthfeel: mild carbonation, medium body,

overall: interesting style of beer. brewed with cherries but not overly fruity like say new glarus cherry. Glad I got to try and quite enjoyed it.

Cheers,
The CPJ

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-clear red and amber coloration with a smallish white head and little lacing

S-malt, sweet cherries, hints of herbal aromas

T-bready malt with sweet cherry flavor with some tartness, light herbal character

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, slight acidity

O-not bad with some solid cherry flavor, but overall I guess I'm just not a big fan of cherry beers
