Vander Mill Founders Keepers. Pours a clear deep gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has a nice dry apple note with a hint of tartness, dry honey and barrel. Flavor starts slightly sweet with honey but quickly becomes tart with a nice touch of barrel in the after taste.

Draft at Jerry’s. Aged in Founders Backwoods Bastard barrels - pale yellow with scant, white head / Elegant nose of fermented red apple and spirit barrel / Medium body, only lightly sweet, beautiful balance with a touch of heat on the finish / Clean, stylish flavors of fermented red apple, light resin, and spirit barrel / A beauty, to rival the Europeans.
