I figured I'd join our friend @BIGPOPPAS with a brew. We'll see in a second whether we agree on the beer, but I can tell you already that we don't agree on who should win the UVa/Villanova game . Founder's Frootwood sounds interesting, but I'm not sure how I'll like it. Definitely agree it's a pretty rose color, and very clear. Lovely to see a little stream of bubbles rise from the middle of the glass. A cross of frothy and soapy head, thick at the edges. I'm getting a little lacing, not quite as much as @BIGPOPPAS seemed to indicate. My initial whiffs did make me think of Backwoods Bastard. Since that's not made with maple, I wonder if the maple is replacing the malty notes from that wonderful beer. The cherry is barely noticeable to me initially, but if I look for it, I can see it in there - maybe a little nod to a cherry soda - maybe a little like Cheerwine. Funny thing, I actually get a lot more cherry than my fellow Frootwood imbiber. I do get a little bit of a weak tart kriek note, without any complexity. The maple acts more of a brief transition to the bourbon notes, which again brings a little recollection of BB. The cherry never quite leaves, nor does the ever so slight tartness it brings. The bourbon flavor also brings a little heat with it. Agree here - light and crisp with just a little heat in the end. Not quite as sweet as one might think, I think because of that light tartness. An emjoyable mix, but not a beer I will probably get more of. Reminds me a little of Rubaeus in its makeup - the fruit is decently represented, with the other notes (hops in the comparison beer) adding interest. I didn't get Rubaeus initially, but it has grown on me a tad. We'll se if this one does as well. As I typed this up, 'Nova has made the run I feared it might. A battle for sure. Hope we pull it out!!
