Tap in Harlem - Red color, creamy rosé head - tart raspberries and some sugar. Body medium malty. Dry finish. A great during-the-day beer!

Might be my least favorite Founders offering, which hurts my soul to admit. Massive raspberry tartness on the front, but holy hell does this thing grow sweeter than sweet, almost to wine cooler levels of saccharine overbearingness. No nuance or balance; nothing but raspberry and sugar. Grows almost undrinkable as it warms.

12 oz bottle. Pours reddish pink with a thin quickly vanishing head. Low carbonation. Aroma is intensely sweet of red fruit and sugar. Sweet to taste with a tart, dry finish, very light mouthfeel overall.

Love me some Founder’s, but I’m not digging this beer. Sweet beyond sweet, a fruit beer with a wine cooler fetish. Big, tart raspberry front is nice, but the overwhelming sugary finish overpowers any nuance.

the aroma is fruity and spicy with shades of garden berries, candy, bubble gum and flowers... the taste is rather sweet, with notes of raspberries, lollipop, bubble gum and some other berries... sweet, tart and dry aftertaste...

Ruby red, white head. Lots of raspberry aroma and taste. Sweet, but not too sweet. Where’s the cake?

Can from Tanakaya. Pours a clear cherry juice color with a finger of pink head that dissipates. Very nice raspberry forward nose with cherry and faint cream. Reminds me a bellevue or lindemans beer. Super sweet on the palate, yes the fruit is there but the sugar high is insane. Like a cough drop or something in the finish with some raspy carbonation. Too sweet. I like my fruit beers much drier.

On tap. Pours bright raspberry red, small white soap head. Aroma of raspberry throat drops. Taste of same. Some type of herbal undertones in finish. Reminds of medicinal qualities too much to enjoy fully.

Great. Reminds me of Lindemann framboise. Amber pour very sweet raspberry. Not my style, but very good.

Really summer beer. Good fresh balance of fruit acidity and sweetness, maybe a tiny touch too sweet. Great raspberry taste. Indeed dangerously drinkable.
