In this special beer blog, we are going to get into another limited release beer known as Harvest Ale from Founders. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Midwest craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Founders Brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has a clear golden color with a constant white head. The smell has a citrus to piney notes. The taste has a piney, citrus, and a slight tropical notes. It is light and refreshing beer with a nice crisp hop finish for the aftertaste. The hop aftertaste hangs but it disappears. It is a pretty drinkable wet hop ale.
Here is a description from their website (www.foundersbrewing.com):
This liquid dream pours a hazy golden straw color with a white, two-finger head. Your first sip rewards you with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh citrus, then finishes to introduce toasted malt undertones.
- ABV: 7.6%
- IBUs: 70
- Availability: October

In the end, I love this beer. This is by far the best product that they make. I really love this wet hopped ale. They picked some nice hops and build a nice malty backbone. There is some nice packaging. I also love the color and presentation of this ale. This is a beer if they can pull it off. It should be all year-long but I get why it is not because it is the harvesting of the hops that makes beer special. I really like this beer and I will have a few more before the end of the season. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
