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.

SamTheBarrel (404) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2014
355ml bottle label featuring a raspberry plant. Appearance is dark raspberry colored with a small light pink head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of raspberries and a hint of barnyard. Flavours of raspberries, refined sugar and a hint of wheat bread. Taste is heavy sweet, medium bitter and light sour. Palate is medium bodied, sticky texture and soft carbonation. Founders Rübæus does taste of real raspberries, but it is too sweet and disappointingly lacking in tartness. The beer has potential, but needs to be stronger, sourer and less sweet for me to enjoy it.

steve1966 (106) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Not much smell except the faint hint of raspberry. Nice reddish color. Tart raspberry beer. Dry finish sweet. Wine cooler or beer? It works though not something I would want all the time. Nice change of pace. Enjoyable.

Pours dark red brown with low disappearing white head Aromas intense of raspberries, hints of red fruits, caramel and alcohol Taste is intense of raspberries, almost like an italian raspberry spumante. You can also note caramel malts and some yeast. Maybe bit too sweet.

Hermod (3128) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2014
355ml bottle @hotel room in Kalmar. From Systembolaget. Dark red color, thin lightly pink head. Aroma has raspberries and some tart notes a la from lingonberries. Sweet berries, raspberry and cherries in flavor, slight tartness in the dry finish. Still no fan of fruit beers, but this goes down. Tart berry Lemonade. Berries override everything else.

TheMadHopper (4) - SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2014 does not count
Flaska från Systembolaget. Intensivt röd, aningen åt det bruna. Vitt kortvarigt skum. Doft av krossade hallon med fruktiga jästtoner. Kraftig sötma med tydlig smak av koncentrerad hallonsaft och sylt. Stor i kroppen med en liten fräschör från en väl gömd alkoholsmak. Hade inte sötman varit så påfallande hade ölen varit en klockren sommarplåga likt, men ändå olikt, Dugges Bärliner. Tyvärr blir det alldeles för klibbigt och man vill ställa ifrån sig glaset efter några klunkar.
