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, 0.355 l - BB 02/03/2015, at Kitty’s, 20140708) The beer poured red and quite clear. Its head was medium sized and pink. Aroma had raspberries and mildly maltiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were raspberries, sweetness, tartness and mildly bitterness. Aftertaste had raspberries and low bitterness. Despite the fact that the beer was almost like raspberry juice it still worked surprisingly well. Wouldln’t drink another one, though.

355 ml bottle from Redmonds. Ruby red, pink head, looks lovely. Nice raspberry nose. Lovely light sweet raspberry flavour. This is really simple and so well done. I should drink more fruit beer.

scotchzombie (316) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Pours mostly opaque berry red with a bubbly pink-tinged white head. Wet lacing. Aroma is florals and raspberries in the wet grass. Taste is juice, raspberries, Chardonnay. Quite dry and short but refreshing. Mostly sweet, just a touch of bitterness. Caramel malty backbone. Not a massive fruit beer fan, but this is a good one and very enjoyable.

Keg @ The Brew Dock, Dublin [290614]
Amber red, hazy, thin pink head
Aroma of soft raspberry, quite sweet, nothing else, but it’s a good aroma
Taste of lots of sweet raspberry, quite tart, raspberry jam, raspberry taste is good, simple, nothing else but raspberry
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, quite oily, sweet palate (but not as hugely sweet as other raspberry fruit beers I’ve tried), some raspberry tartness. Finish as main flavour, cleans off palate.
Overall - Good raspberry flavour, but there isn’t anything else going on....really a better quality alcopop

Ruby red pour with large off white head. Aroma of raspberries, nothing else. Taste of raspberries, nothing else. Both sweet raspberry jam and a tart raspberry candy all rolled into one. Medium bodied, higher carbonation, nice fruit beer.

Bottle at #EBBC14 from Drinkstore
Very sweet juicy raspberries, almost cloyingly sweet, not much else than raspberries but i love raspberries so enjoyed the beer. A touch thin, bright scarlet with pink head.

Nice and solid fruit beer with a strong raspberry character and a decent balance of sweetness and sourness. The finish is quite sticky though and a bit too dry like fruit peel.

VastActiv (2574) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle 0.355l at Kitty’s, Helsinki. Best by: 02/03/2015. Colour is deep red with small slightly reddish white head. Aromas and flavors: Berries, raspberries, some sourness, hints of tartness and sweetness. Nice and soft. Some lactic elements when warming up. One of the best of this style but not my beer.

harrisoni (13215) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
On tap at BrewDog Camden. Hazy raspberry red beer thin collar white bubbles. Raspberry fruit and butter in the aroma. Settles down in mouth to raspberry fruit like slightly sour sweet raspberry and a soft slightly caramel sweet raspberry sour finish. Interesting fruit beer. Good mix of sweet and sour. Something doesn’t quite ring right though
