My first Founders beer!

Poured into a pint glass. Pours redish pink. No head whatsoever. Maybe Minnesota got some old bottles or something, literally no head produced. Slight carbonation, no lacing.

The aroma is very light. There is a bit of cherry and maybe apples. I suppose you could say watermellon too, but that is a stretch. I'm also getting some malt here too.

Taste is pretty much what the aroma leads you to believe. Slightly watered down cherry flavor is pretty much all you get. Not very impressive at all. Sort of reminds me of Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss, definitely not a compliment.

Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp. There is some carbonation here, finally. Drinkability is ok, I definitely couldn't drink a lot of these, I feel like I'd get sick.

Overall, a pretty big disappointment. But I wasn't expecting a knockout. It's ok, my view of Founders is not tarnished. I still have 3 new brews to try and hopefully love. This one just didn't do it for me.

Fairly clear, bit of haze, with a definite red hue. Fine whitish bubbles formed a thin ring and a few remained on the surface of the beer, producing some short-lived spotty lacing between sips. Mild aroma, floral hops were up front with a subtle fruity character. Yeah, there some cherry there, but also a bit of earthy berry. Certainly balanced towards sweetness, bitterness was light and really only noticeable up front. Sour cherries and sugar/caramel became prominent mid-palate and sweetness increased into the finish. There was a hint of crackery malt and some tartness towards the end. Medium bodied with carbonation slightly less than average, a bit viscous. Not bad overall. The cherry flavour had a bit of a medicinal quality to it as the beer warmed, but the malt kept it closer to cherry pie territory.
