COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandy—Rübæus is Founders’ way to celebrate the season’s warmest months. Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. No question about it, with a hefty malt bill and 5.7% ABV, this beer is 100% Founders.

Bottle. A- Raspberries, wheat, berries, fake fruits. A- Dark pink color, cloudy liquid, minimal head. T- Raspberries, mixed berries, artificial, sweet. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, artificial fruit finish. O- I was hoping since it was Founders it would be real good. Unfortunately, even Founders can’t make a solid raspberry beer. I’ve come to decide, if it’s a fruit other than peach or apricot, it’s probably not going to be a good fruit beer. Just a letdown., unless my bottle was old or something.

esox (1031) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Bottled. Hazy ruby to brown color, thin creamy head. Strong, juicy raspberry aroma with caramel and some toffee. A touch of biscuity malts. Sweet flavor, sugary raspberry juice, some berryish acidity. Low bitterness. Slightly papery aftertaste. Medium body. Too sweet.

daje (2146) - NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
On tap at Cafe Sara, july 11th 2014. Looks really nice, ruby red body with a small pinktinted white head and a lively carbonation. Aroma of raspberry candy, yeast. Taste of tart raspberries, sweet honey, a bit too sweet for me. Finish of berries and sweet bread. Taste is good, however a little onedimensional and gets a bit boring fast

Pours a matte ruby red with a fairly small white head. Aromas of raspberries, strawberries, slight elderflower and citrus notes. Taste is strawberries and raspberries as well as some hints of lingonberry as well. Mouthfeel is somewhat dry. Very clean and very refreshing.

bigda83 (152) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a deep red with a very tiny off white head. Aroma is of fresh juicy berries and tons of raspberry. Taste is the same and kind of reminds me of raspberry tarts. I’m usually not big into the heavy fruit beers but this was truly amazing. Very solid beer.
