look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. bottled 6/6/12.

pours out a deep pinkish red color with a small slightly off white head that faded to a thin ring rather quickly. slightly cloudy, no lace.

not much aroma, exspecially when its still pretty cold. as it warms, some sweet cherries are noticable, a bit cough syrup like, some grains noticable as well.

sweet cherries with a little bit of tartness towards the finish. some grains noticable. hints of cough syrup and sugar.

medium to light in body, good, refreshing feeling carbonation.

a decent summer brew, but i maybe expected more from founders. easy drinking.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A-Clear ruby red, one finger head, some carbonation along with sediment.

S-Cherries, some malt, more cherries. A sweet smelling brew.

T-Sweet cherries, more cherries, no bitterness. One dimensional could use some more flavors.

M-Light, nice carbonation, crisp summer beer.

O-Easily the worst Founders beer I've had. You'd think they'd be able to make something better for the summer.

Bottled 05/24/2012.

Into a pint glass (also a snifter, nothing changed):

A: hazy strawberry red body that is too cloudy to see any carbonation. A small white head mushroom capped and turned into the body within ten seconds.

S: cherry and alcohol up front with some grains and malts very lightly in the background.

T: tart and sweet through the cherry combining with the malts, reminds me a bit of cherry pie once I noticed how the malts combined

M: light to medium with slight carbonation felt on the tongue.

O: well, I never had a cherry pie for a beer, but with the alcohol smell I can tell its a beer. Two more, I probably will be able to finish, but will probably not buy this again.
