2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
i think this rating is generous for a founders beer. a letdown. sampled months ago. reddish pour with minimal head..aroma is what is expected by a beer of the name. coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg...list goes on..flavor is a mess of all these with hints of clove as well. too much. difficult to enjoy

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler shared at Founders tasting at Party Source.
Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy herbs, lemon grass and ginger aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spicy sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration.
This is a standout beer for style and my expectations where met.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Founders. This beer is actually quite good. It is very spicy in aroma and taste. When I say spicy i mean a nice blend of spice, not spicy as in Hole Mole.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Founders; Golden-looking pour with a minimal white head. Nose was heavy on the spice with the coriander coming through prominently along with a strong flower petal note, the base pale brew was apparent as well. Flavor had some nice hop bitterness with a bit of citrus, clove, cinnamon and floral notes. Good, sessionable brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at Founders Brewing Company. Nose is coriander and cinnamon with the coriander riding nicely on the malt profile. The cinnamon and clove flavors follow with nice levels. Good spiced beer.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #50 of 90. On tap at Founders in Grand Rapids. There was a flyer floating around said something about the guy who helped brew this could only keep his job if it was a hit. Hope he does, ’cause this ain’t bad! Says it was brewed with Cardamon, coriander, clove, cinnamon and honey. I taste most of it, minus the cardamon (wtf is cardamon?). Light bodied, bitter and a decent amount of hops. Very good mix of spices in this.
