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.

12 oz bottle, courtesy of Sammy. Deep red-brown beer with a thin off-white head. Big hoppy aroma, pine, resin, and some woodsy spiciness. Sweet malts mingle behind the hoppy top notes. Vanilla aroma as well. Flavour shows the same vanilla notes, spicy hops, and a touch of peppery alcohol. Faint sweetness in the middle of the palate before a fruity cherry and citrus flavour that is quickly backed up by an assertive hop flavour and bitterness. Awesome.

Bright reddish-brown body with a creamy off-white head. Spicy rye, caramel malt, fig, and cinnamon aroma. Nice toasty, warm and spicy malt qualities marry nicely with the hop varieties. Great aftertaste and medium, palatable texture. This is like Arrogant Bastard with refinement. I dig it.

This is my new favorite hoppy beer!! My wife and I polished off a sixer over last weekend and I went back to buy what was the last sixer my store had. I love the way the hops and rye intermix. Damn nice beer. Might have the best aroma Iíve ever smelled hopwise.

The hops in this beer are forward, but not overwhelming. Aroma of hops, grapefruit, malt, citrus, rye. Taste starts with hop bitterness with a smooth follow-through. Slightly sweet. Comfortable palate. Overall, a refreshing, tasty beer.

Deep round red color and beautiful floral hop nose. This beer is both bitter and balanced. Wow. It makes me want to dance with tigers and sleep with rats. Sometimes.

Decent sized light tan hea dof fine bubbles. Reduces to a thick sheet of sticky lacing. Wonderful aroma. A boat load of pine, citrus, flowers and grapefruit in there. Gotta love hops! Dry aroma also. Color is a dark orange red. Flavor is sweet like hard candy up front then mellows out to a wonderful hops palate. Little spices and a little rye. Slight bitterness but is very well balanced. Finish is bitter and dry and leaves a lingering sweet and pasty bitterness in the mouth. I really like this beer. Thanks to RoyalBrown for this one.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Bottled. U.S. Beer #15 of 31 for American Beer Month! Open up and thereís the nice, spicy smell of an American wheat. Pours a deep amber color under a rocky, lacy head. Taste is the same light spiciness and soft malts of the few rye beers Iíve been able to enjoy. A northwestern hop smack adds to the enjoyment. I may be rating this pretty high, but frankly itís hard to find any fault with this little brew. Nice sticky hoppiness left on the lips, too.

Beatufiul bright red body with a thick, frothy white ehad. Potent, hoppy aroma, citrus/grapefruit and very crisp. Very hoppy flavor, with a slight sweetness -more true to an IPA style. The finish has a crisp, grapefruity and well-defined sharpness.

Poured a cloudy reddish, copper out of the bottle. Full, lasting head and good amount of lacing. Strong aroma is of piney hops. Flavor consists of piney hops and spices (due, no doubt, to the rye). This full-bodied beer is slightly bitter, crisp and refreshing. Another great brew from Founders.
