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.

Rasberry goodness. Lovely aroma with bitter at back end. I like purple haze but this blows it out of rhe water. A lovely refreshing summer beer.

Nocturne (744) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at BrewDog Manchester. A cloudy shade of red. Slightly pinkish head above. Nose is light malty, a bit like a brown ale. Bit of raspberry too. Lots more raspberry sweetness in the taste, which starts out all bright and natural before taking on a more candy-like medicinal dimension as it progresses. Strong backbone to it all. One of the better fruit beers I’ve had.

ametras (328) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
12oz bottle. Deep red with a foamy off-white head. Flavors are raspberry jam, lemon, cranberry juice and sugar. Light tartness. A bit too sweet. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture.

nearbeer (3588) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Pint on tap. Hazy raspberry color with a lasting disc of cream. Nose is tart and sweet raspberry. Taste is the same with some hints of grapefruit and wooden hops. More light-than-medium body is refreshing and finishes dry enough.

spacecube (758) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
355ml bottle, pours deep ruby red with a bubbly off-white lacing. Aroma is really all about the raspberries, very fresh tasting, sweet, tart but with a dry balanced finish. Palate is full. Very well done really, not especially my thing but my girlfriend would love it.

DrinkinWell (227) - - JUN 17, 2014
Pours a cloudy bright raspberry red with little head or lacing. Raspberry on the nose, very subtle for a fruity beer. Sweet citrus flavors--raspberry, strawberry, kiwi, hints of grapefruit. Light carbonation; crisp mouthfeel. A nice fruity drink, not too overpowering.
