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.

Boy I sure like these beers with malted rye....maybe itís a novelty, but I like it anyway. Big reddish-amber pour, fluffy off-white head. Big citrus hop aroma...kinda suprised me. Thereís some malt there too, but itís definitely here in a supporting role. Spicy hoppiness in the flavor with a better malt presence. Very tasty. Medium bodied and flavorful. I canít think of a Founders concoction thatís disappointed me yet.

cloudy, deep amber/brownish color, beige head. aroma is fairly strong on the lemony hops and is quite tart/tangy. flavor is initially quite lemony and floral with a bit of a numbing alcohol feel on the tongue. there is a slight herbal chocolatiness in the finish and aftertaste. the hop profile reminds me a little of Bellís Two-Hearted.

Color a red hued amber, with a thin head of off-white. Aroma a cloying aroma of oranges and resin. Flavor is sweet and deliciously hoppy, but lacks much in the way rye flavor, instead a coarse grainy tooth combined with the sticky sweet orange and lime floral. Finish is a touch grassy, mixed with lucious sweetness.

Pour is hazed reddish amber with a thin almost non existant head...smell is very hoppy...grapefruit and pine...wow...this taste great!!! Lightly malty up front, but turning to a nice chewy bitterness...not just something watery on the sides of my tongue, but all over it and what phenomenal body!!!

Bottle. Deep red on the pour with fruit, maybe some grapefruit. Nice flavors of light caramel sweetness and full fruit with a somewhat bitter finish. Thanks Steward of Gondor for the brew.

Hazy amber golden colored, foamy tan head. Very fruity and hoppy aroma with a sweet candied note. Notes of orange, peach and lemon. Nice! Fruity and hoppy flavor as well with a good balanced bitterness. A bit thin in the body but tasty!

bottle from santa, thanks man, if we ever meet, the first one is on me ;). part two of my red white and black evening. nice murky red pour that looks like something i saw drain out of lumpyís 76 caprice classic back in the day with a sticky yellow tinted head. damn fine aroma of plums, paint, scotchguard, booze, tangerine, candy and something close to climax. i seriously may change my favorite style to rye beers. the sweet flavor always gives me a bit of a stiffy. a great fruit flavor of orange, lime, grape, apple and other goodies, reminds me of a good spiked punch at a fairground. nutty cotton candy notyes are nice. especially in the finish christwagons, this is good. even the bit of dryness in the finish works well. thanks again you mystterious man in wisconsin.

I first tried this at the GToM in Madison, and fely it was the BEST beer in attendance. I found it recently in IL, and have been rejoined with the AWESOME finish of amarillo hops, and sweet maltiness.

Luminous (fantomeish?) ruddy amber. Sharp spicy sweet hoppy aroma. Grassy grapefruit and other exotic fruity hop aroma. Medium bodied, moderate clean bitterness with sweet malts, carmelly, yet with a tangy spicy (rye) finish. Late grapefruit rind and orange peel hops take the tandem malty sweet/tangy spice finish.

Pours a red/amber color with a small head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma is slightly hoppy and floral with just a hint of rye. Flavor is refreshing and enjoyable with hints of hops and slight floral tones. Nice and smooth on the palate. Overall a very enjoyable beer.
