Had an 8 oz. serving on-tap at Founder's Brewery. Poured into a brandy snifter. The board said it's at 9% ABV.

A: Cloudy dark red, with a foamy, pinkish head. Good retention. Lots of sticky lace.

S: Wow! Lots going on here: sugar, cherries, red wine, licorice, raspberry. Sweet, but not overly sweet.

T: Lots to love here as well: cherries and raspberries. It starts sweet, then blossoms into a tart cherry aftertaste. Incredible balance on the flavors. This is one of the best Fruit/Vegetable beers I've ever had. Not just loaded up with sweetness, but with some tartness and bitterness to balance it. And there's so much going on with the aromas and flavors.

M: Bright and fizzy, medium-bodied.

D: VERY drinkable, although watch out for that 9% ABV. The sweet and tart flavors cover it up well. This is really great stuff - I could return for many more of these.

Served in a snifter at Founders 1/6/08. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Served a dark red. Like cloudy cranberry juice. Very bright pink head with some spotty lace.

S: Rich, freshly-squeezed raspberry juice aroma with a hint of toasted malt.

T: Fresh tart raspberry, chocolate, toasted malt, with an awesome bread dough flavor in the finish.

M: Smooth and sticky with a perfect amount of tang.

D: Unbelievable! This beer is so tasty and refreshing, you completely forget the fact that it's pushing 9% abv. They need to bottle this.
