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, Beers of Europe. Red pink with an off white head. Raspberry with cream and light funk. Sweet then tart on the finish. Strawberry pulp notes. Decent.

Red/orange color. Aromas of sweet raspberries, raspberry jam and slight lemon twist. Taste is sweet raspberries that soon turns to a tart, acidic taste. I prefer the Blushing Monk over this.

Brilliant red color with a white head. Fantastic raspberry aroma. Tart berry fruit on the palate, sweet, medium body, tart raspberry finish. Reminds me of Lindeman’s framboise lambic only higher alcohol.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2016 Beautiful glass of beer. Nice color and great bottle art. I’m a huge Founder’s fan and waited a long time to see this in my area. Sadly, I think I set my sights to high because it definitely disappointed me. 9/6/2016 rating update. This truly proves that sometimes my taste is completely off. The first time I drank this I didn’t even pick up a hint of the raspberry flavor but tonight I not only taste it but I think it’s delicious! Definitely one of the better fruit beers I’ve had this year.

Pours red golden with a slight aroma of raspberries. Moderate taste of sweet raspberries with a smooth sweet juice finish.

Deep red, but clear beer, head gone in 2 secs flat. Bit sweetish, jam-like raspberry nose, if watered down a bit. Soft-sweet, jamlike again, breadspread, quite watered-down. Sticky, despite the light body. Far from great.
