look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into HF glass.

A- Pours a slightly translucent dark cherry red with a very thin white bubbly head that quickly dissipates. Some white sedimentation floating around in the glass. Some spotty lacing left around the glass. Fairly light carbonation.

S- Light cherry syrup, sweet, smells a little bit sugary, not too aromatic, but not bad smelling.

T- Lightly sweet cherry, a little bit of berries, slightly artificial tasting, a little bit sugary, and not overly complex drinks almost like cherry juice. Not terrible, but definitely not great.

M- Light, not too much carbonation, goes down easily. A little bit too flat.

O- This was okay, but definitely a little bit disappointing for a Founders beer. Not too much aroma, a little bit artificial tasting, and fairly flat. That being said it was fairly easy to drink and it wasn't terrible (just had high expectations). I'd recommend trying it if you are a fruit beer fan, but probably stay away from it if you aren't.

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.

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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
