COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a spectacular crimson red with a creamy tan head. Brewed with four varieties of Belgian caramel malts imparting a sweet richness.

"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. It’s 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. i’m learning more about hops with founders. this and the centennial have a very hoppy aroma, but it’s 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 you’re 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 wouldn’t 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 (716) - 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, I’d 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. I’m surprised that this brew doesn’t 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.

4.1
vyvvy (6835) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2006
Pours a clear dark reddish brown - slightly hazy with a very pillowy looking off white head. Pleasing smooth hop aroma. Aroma is a hops with some malt aspects that give it a smooth feel. Taste begins full bodied with the malt up-front - nice dark roastiness with carmel aspects. Shortly after that comes the heavy hop presence and dryness from the rye. The finish is hop and rye bitterness. The lacing on the glass is very heavy. This is a fantastic beer from a brewery that never lets me down.
