another beer i had at the harvest celebration down at founders ales...beautiful cherry red color (similar to a raspberry tea appearance)..a tart cherry flavor, somewhat sour, maybe a hint of vinegar? quite appetizing JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Bing, bing, bing, this was all cherry! Fresh cherries in the nose, but cherry syrup on the palate. One dimensional with little else to write about. Fun to sip on, though! Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2004
On tap at Founders. This beer didn’t come together for me. Fairly clear red-brown body, thin off-white head. Very light aroma (served too cold!) of grassy hops and cherry syrup. Flavor of cherry syrup, tart (and a touch woody) cherry skin, and underlying toasty malt with bitter hops. Had an acidic bite and just a hint of alcohol. The malt backbone wasn’t strong enough to support the cherry flavor. Syrupy aftertaste. At $4.50/pint this was an expensive mediocre beer!
