4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Found this on a bottom shelf covered in dust. the smell was magnificent a cherry beer that smells like real cherries?? poured into a pint glass and shook the last bit of fluid around in the bottom of the glass with a splosh and splash to retrieve the settlement laid out on the bottom of the bottle. has this beer really been sitting on a shelf for a year? first taste and I remember the first time, biting into the warm buttery crust and the juicy pie filling gushing out into my beard crumbs falling onto my shirt like pie dandruff ugh enough about my "first" and back to the beer. plain and simple this aged on a bottom shelf beer is fantastic with a tart cherry flavor that taste like cherries and not cough medicine. smooth and refreshing yet not syrupy and gross like most in this category. pouring a cherry pie down your throat has never been more fun!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Backlog rating. This beer pours a small light pink head, opaque body and no lacing. The Aroma is sweet, tart cherries, and some malt. Ditto for the Taste. The Palate is lightly tingly and the beer is medium bodied. This beer is not overly cherry tasting. In fact, it needs more cherry taste! This is not one of my favorite beer styles, but this one I did enjoy.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark red color with a small foamy light pink head. Strong cherry aroma. Taste of tart cherries with a sweet syrupy finish. I love Founders, but not a fan of this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light ruby pour with a white head. Aromas of fresh tart cherries. Very light and crisp. The cherry flavor is upfront but not too intense. Perfect balance of tart and sweet. Very refreshing, I could drink plenty of these during the summer. Solid brew.
