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.

12oz bottle: A red copper pour. Aroma is sweet malt with floral and pine hops. Good flavor with caramel maltiness and a striking bitterness. This is definitely bottle conditioned as there was an impressive amount of sediment that scattered throughout the beer. This might turn some people off but I like it. There was also an interesting spiciness underneath the hop bitterness. My initial impression was that it was somewhat unbalanced but as it warmed the malt backbone really took over and made for a more mellow experience. Overall, an interesting beer that I will enjoy having again.

(12oz bottle, thanks artusory) Lightly hazed copper body topped by a medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine/pineapple, caramel, light rye. Taste is moderately sweet, pineapple/grapefruit, caramel, some rye, light lemon -- very strong bitterness. Medium body with some stickiness, acidity.

POD (198) - USA - MAY 6, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 I couldnít finish this beer. The deep red color and appearance was fine. It had an overwhelming rye aftertaste that was too extreme for my taste preference.

Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2006
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.

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.

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

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!
