COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship year-round release WINDVANE stands strong through all types of weather and is a great fit for all seasons. Pouring a deep brilliant red, this is your go-to beer. If you want something hoppy, you definitely have it. American hops give WINDVANE a swift bitterness with piney, citrus and resinous flavors. If you want something with strong malt shoulders, you have that too. Roast malt layers add complexity and keeps the beer dry to showcase the hops.

I’m not much of a red ale fellow, but this was a pleasant surprise, with assertive dark cherry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Defied the genre and my expectations, as it had stout-like traits. Will definitely buy some more.

16oz pour from Bar/restaurant in Minneapolis. Amber pour, not much head . Nice color and smell. Hoppy red ale with notes of pine , citrus and caramel . Reminds me a little of Surly Furious. Nice flavor profile and body. I would buy this for sure if it was available in stores. Great beer for summer , another great twin cities brewery to keep an eye on.

Nice hop heavy aroma! Very much lemon, and stone fruit! Nice palate and overall a great tasting first red! Put it on cask and shove more hops in it!

Deep ruby pour. Aroma of citrus, with hints of bread. The flavor takes it to another level, though. The citrus remains, but is matched by a great, chunky, roasty malt profile that is more ambitious and complex than what I’m used to seeing in most ryePAs. Maybe not as balanced as some others, but I like what they did here. Well done.
