My first beer review! I have wanted to do this for a while and I wanted to review one of my favorites for my first review. My wife found a Founder's Cerise deep in the refrigerator that I didn't realize I had. As most of you already know, Founder's did not brew Cerise as a seasonal in 2013 due to the poor Michigan cherry crop in 2012. I hope they bring it back next year.
Appearance - cloudy ruby red. Very little head was produced from the pour and it slowly faded away in about 3 to 5 minutes. Man, I want to drink this beer on appearance alone!
Smell - what else? Nothing but cherries. I barely pick up some bread notes but only because I desperately try to detect anything but the cherries.
Taste - cherry dominates as is expected. I get all sweet cherry on the entry with only minimal sour cherry aftertaste. I couldn't taste that bread note that I smelled.
Mouthfeel - very light and smooth drinker. The sour cherry aftertaste left a tart dryness in my mouth. The dryness make me want that next drink even more.
Very very easy to drink. I could knock down several Founder's Cerise and not think twice about it. It is one of my most refreshing beers to drink during the summer. I can't wait for Founder's to make Cerise once again.
