COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a spectacular crimson red with a creamy tan head. Brewed with four varieties of Belgian caramel malts imparting a sweet richness. Reds Rye is impressively balanced with its hop bitterness and floral bouquet achieved from the dry hop. In the finish, the generous amount of malted rye used accentuates a spicy crisp finish.

Bottled - winter seasonal. On tap - year-round.

Note: Formerly Redís Rye P.A.

Thanks to some great RateBeeriean for sending me this bottle!

The first beer since my wisdom teeth were extractedÖ man, Iíve been craving a nice brew!
Pours a rich amber body and a tall dense khaki head. The aroma is enticingly wild; unlike the old guy with the glasses on the label. Suggestions of toffee and caramel are gently pushed aside by mentions of pine resin and spicy citric hops. Guava, grapefruit, cumquat, brown sugar covered oatmeal and rosemary all come to reference here. The palate is sticky and viscous, the perfect level of light carbonation for me. A very lovely beer... I so wish this were available locally!

Thanks to Leopoldstoch for the trade. Pours a hazy deep orange with a sticky beige head and awesome lace. Aroma is thick and pungeant with tons of hops and sticky sweet caramel malts. Flavor is citrus, orange, grapefruit, and lots of caramel, toffee, pine and a great sharp bitterness. Damn good mouthfeel- smooht thick full with a great bitterness. Fresh hops all the way through. (thanks again brandon)

Reddish cloudy amber appearance. Very Hoppy -- like an IPA almost bitterness and carmel malt flavor as well. Rye adds some sour flavors, and lingering aftertast. Not my favorite Founders, but its still a great beer.

A great, warming brew. Quite hoppy, that suprised me with this one. Maltiness is there too, drank very easy for the alc content. Solid brew. Thanks to secret santa for this brew!

Another good beer from Founders. I have never really been disappointed by any of their beers. The aroma is very hoppy for a rye, but for me thats a good thing. I little less malt in the taste then I would like to see. Maybe that has something to do with the rye, but regardless this is a good beer, and overall definitly recommended to any one that has not tried it before.

12 oz bottle thanks to Santa. Deep Amber with little head. Very hoppy aroma. Citrusy and fruity. Some caramelly maltiness too. Flavors Were not as fruity. Grassy hops, with a much deepter malt profile. Rye flavor was more evident than in other rye beers I have had. Pretty decent.

milewide (1958) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2007 Rye adds a sour taste vs usual malt sweetness. Nice lingering hop bitterness. The sour/bitter sticks with you. The color is crimson as claimed.

12 oz bottle, thanks to Styles for getting this one to me. This poured a a nice amber color with a descent off white head. Great hoppy aroma with a nice side of rye. I love rye beers! Flavor was well balanced. Good hop bitterness throughout with a nice caramel maltiness in the middle. I actually had this at the beach on a hot summer day, it was a perfect match! This ainít no Hop Rod Rye, but almost as good! Thanks Chris!

Bottle (12oz). Fssssht! and away we go - Bubbly hazy deep amber with a huge - I mean huge - lasting tiny-bubbled foamy yellow-straw head, a few lace curtains as it slowly settles (4+). (masses of sediment in the bottom, but seems fine to me). Aroma of freshly dried rye grain, toasty sweet caramel malt and plent of floral/resiny hops. Quite a hit of alcohol in the taste, but the malt carries it and the resiny hops jump to the front to carry the rye through to a bitter/balance longish finish. Solid body, with good astringency and tons of carbonation - very, very good and a lovely malty treat for a hot summerís day.
