2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was disappointed with this, and many of Founders offerings of late. The color was good, deep mahogoney brown, somewhat cloudy. The wheat profile was slight to non-existant. Very little complexity to the flavor. Don’t feel like you missed anything if you get to Founders and try something else.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Founders: Slightly hazed dark brown color with a beige head. Sweet roasted malt with ash notes. Roasted malt flavor that was sweet with some fruity notes. Light to medium bodied.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Founders. Deep murky black-brown body, medium off-white head. Lightly toasty chocolatey aroma. Rather thin, light body with toast, chocolate, and a light bite on the tongue. A touch grassy but little wheat character on the whole. An underwhelming beer with very little flavor and complexity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Founders. Dark brown pour with a small creamy off-white head that diminished quickly. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Medium sweet toasted malt flavor with a light bitter finish of average duration. Drinkable but soft from Founders.

mediocre at best....a clearish black appearance with medium head...aroma and flavor are one of the same...some roasted malts, a touch of their harvest hops, and a bit of rye...watered down flavor....okay palate
