Wow. Excellent aroma of bourbon, raspberries and brown sugar. Nice bitterness but smooth to drink as well. Very good balance all the way around. Alcohol is hidden very well also. I wish it wasn’t bright red so i could rate the appearance higher. Thanks Founders! Bottle this!!!!!

deep, vinous purple body..aroma of light oak, raspberry vinegarette, and sugar..flavor is much improved from the original ambrosia tart..nice and tart, with a sour funk and oaky backbone..very light in this characteristic, and appropriately used for this beer...this beer is a punch on the tongue for sure..excellent

On tap at Founders. The appearance was a very nice brigt red in color, just like the rasperries that were to come in the nose and mouth. In the mouth it had a nice smoothness to go along with the bright fruit. Not something I would want every day but a wonderful once in a while beer!

Had on tap at Founders. Appearance was very nice. Great flowery sweet aftertaste. Very smooth, tastes almost like a sweet red wine but better. I will recommend this beer to my wine drinking friends to help them make the switch to beer.

Hazy, bright red body with a small pink head - fading. The nose is fresh raspberries, caramel, light bourbon and charred oak. The flavor is lightly tart and moderately sweet with tart, fresh raspberries, dough, cotton candy, very light bourbon and oak. Medium/full body is soft with light carbonation. Nice.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2007
On tap at Founders. Appearance very similar to Blushing Monk- bright red body, medium pink head. Tart raspberry aroma with bourbon and oak notes. Sharp, tart raspberry body, accentuated by musty oak at the beginning of the sip. Tart finish. Some bready malt notes in the finish, too. Interesting interplay between oak and the tart raspberries. It’s time for some wild yeast additions...
