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.

suurjuust (2236) - ESTONIA - JAN 5, 2016
Slightly hazy red beer, medium white head. Nose is raspberries, sweetness and just a hint of tartness, though the overall impression is of raspberry lemonade. Flavor is more of the raspberry lemonade, but with more tartness than I expected. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, not thin though, but it has some dry notes. Lingering raspberrie lemonade. Liking this more than I though I would.

Superior fruit beer made even better when punched up with a nitro tap line (thanks Flying Hound!). Sweet and soft and just the right balance with tart raspberries. Rivals New Glarus’s mastery of fruit beers.

Block (1917) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2016
This beer has a lot of raspberry and a good fruit flavor. Not too synthetic and it wen’t really well. The body and mouthfeel of a wheat beer, it’s basically raspberries throughout. Pretty nice.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn. BB date scraped off by the importer? Pours a beautiful dark red with a brownish shade, reminiscent of raspberry juice. Head’s off-white and rather small. The aroma is I’d say rather subtle raspberry juice, same is the flavour. Can even detect the malts in the background. Lacks tartness though. Pretty light and only slightly sticky on the palate with medium carbonation. A bit of a herbal, nettley - or even a tad medicinal - finish. Would like to try it very fresh - I suspect the bottle next to me is too old already.

Bottle. Pours reddish pink with a thin quickly vanishing head. Low carbonation. Aroma is intensely sweet of red fruit and sugar. Sweet to taste with a tart, dry finish, very light mouthfeel overall. Belies its 5.7% abv. Great summer beer!

Brandon1989 (467) - Euless, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Pours a mostly clear pinkish Amber color with a lot of carbonation and a small white head that dissipated very quickly. The aroma is overwhelmed by raspberries and candy sugar. The aroma is very sweet. The taste is more of the same but a little more tart. This honestly doesn't taste much like a beer.
