Pours a dark amber, opaque. Lacing is OK. Aroma is rye and cherries. Sour cherries. Taste is mellow and balanced. Rye is very apparent, but not overpowering. Not a bad brew.

Perfectly balanced rye beer. The easy drinking hops even out the rye malt undertones. The hop flavors are fresh, medium bitterness, and very tasty. One of the best beers I have sampled in the summer 2012.

Creamy head, thick russet color. A strong pungent hop smell without an overpowering hop flavor. Nicely balaced.

pours a nice deep red with a small tan head. A robust hop taste that tends to downplay the malts. Very heavy on the palate without going over the edge. Good quality brew and pleasant for a nice summer day.

On tap at the brewery in the summer of 09. This rating is part of a bunch of forgotten ratings. Hazed orange with a brown little head. Aroma of sweet citrus, grapefruit, with malty tangerines and rich alcohol. Malty citrus thatís bitter and and boozy. Too boozy. The alcohol is too much.

I love this beer! Beautiful color, taste reminds me of a nice carbonated red wine. The aroma is woody and puts me at ease around the campfire.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Founders Brewhouse in July 2009.
Pours a dark rust/amber color with a nice white head. The nose has plenty of citrus hops, hints of oak, as well as plenty of rye. The taste is much the same but with the barrel flavors taking over a little bit for the hops. Medium body with smooth drinkability, though not quite as great as regular Redís Rye.
Serving type: on-tap

Oak is prevalent in this as well as an up front rye flavor. Other flavors of vanilla, sweet malt, and light spice were noticeable and nice. Good brew.

A slag bit of heaven that you may miss on the grand tour. The frightful logo may put you off, but look past the old man and his cynical beard into a hazy wonderment of flavours. Saunter through a lazy head and realize that youíre sipping upon a world class rye, one that hints upon rows of cereal grains as yet undiscovered by modern man. This pour had notes of tree fruits, hedge fruits, legumes, palsied fanciers of aged squirrel in a bottle and a ripe bit of fun in a six-pack. Make your way to this offering and I doubt youíll be willing to live a life without it.
