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.

Bottle. Fantastic. Hazy deep red/copper pour with thin white head...lots of "floaties". Aroma is spicy/fruity/piney hop goodness with hints of toasted malts. Flavor is great...crisp and dry, complex malts, well balanced overall with a nice hop bite finish. This is the first Founders beer Iíve had, and Iím impressed. This had much more in the way of hop character than many so-called "IPAís" that Ikíve had lately. I wish I had another one... :(

"Wow this had so much sedimentation i checked the reviews to see if everyone else had that much before i drank it. Poured a nice orange red color. Aroma was much like the dogfish head 60min carmel malts and pine hop. Flavor was much the same, except the rye was there after you finished your sip. Not a bad beer."

On tap at richos - Pours with an amber body topped by a thin head with some lacing. Itís slighlty sweet and malty with a touch of caramel, some flowery notes and a touch of fruit. Medium bodied and smooth with a slight tingle.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottled. Dark amber tending to red with nice sandy head. Floral nose with oranges and melon. Nicely sweet/spicy and prominently hoppy taste, with malty caramel carrying it along. Finish with a bit of pine.

2nd time I tried this, but first time I am rating it. Bought it bottled in a bar , and was impressed. I was a couple Belgians in, so my rating wouldnít be that accurate! I bought a 6 pick, and I think I got a bad batch. Upon opening each bottle (3 so far) the head pours out for a good minute. The beer is then basically unpourble. Once poured, the flavor is "off" and their is huge chunks of black yeast? floating in the the glass. No fun!

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2006
[bottle] Pours a reddish amber color with consistently tall, foamy heads. Aroma is quite pleasent- herbal hops and rye. Flavors are quite bitter- nearly spicy. Sourdough bread yeast, finishes astringent with a fine hop finish. Very nice.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 11, 2006
Very nice nose, no shortage of hops spice and brown sugar; bring it on! As the brew warms, a strong floral character permeates the aroma. The brew pours a cloudy orange copper. The stiff, tall off white head is rocky with excellent retention, and leaves wispy webs of lace. The flavor is exceptional. If I was tasting blind, Iíd think I was sampling a very well made IPA. Bitter throughout with stout depth and a strong coffee finish. The medium to full body is soft and very dry. Iím surprised that this brew doesnít have a stronger average, this one caught me off guard. If this brew is indicative of the prowess of this brewer, Founders may be one of the best kept secrets in the industry.

As the name implies, I could only taste one thing...rye. I hate rye bread, so I found this beer extremely hard to drink.

a very solid beer all around. iím learning more about hops with founders. this and the centennial have a very hoppy aroma, but itís a very sharp hops. i was raised on the three floyds hop, and this is quite a bit different. sharp, in the sense of how a mint leaf smells compared to what youíre used to as mint flavor. easily identifiable rye smell/taste. pretty terrific
