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.

Huge giant aromas a raspberry almost soapy fragrant. Hazy red with light pink head. The flavor is mellow compared to the smell but still strong. Great body thicker then expected.

Wheaty bready aroma somewhat bland Pours a hazy pinkish red with small wispy white head Sweet raspberry and tart flavor with bready maltiness. Light bodied with medium high co2, quick sweet finish. Very refreshing and easy to drink. I could drink these all day long on a hot day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (2051) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Pours a thin head on a clear red-hued straw body. The aroma is raspberries. The taste is mellow raspberry, just sweet enough and some tart. Good balance. The texture is crisp. Really enjoyable.

DYCSoccer17 (3580) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2016
12 ounce bottle from a 4 pack that was purchased at Romie’s Liquors in Woodland. The aroma on this is straight forward. Sweet and tart raspberry juice. There may be a bit of a metallic hop undertone, too. Pours a transparent garnet color with a large, frothy light-pink/orange head. Starts with some initial raspberry sweetness, before it has a slight tart raspberry character in the middle. Finishes with a bit of a malty, almost milky sweetness. Some cereal, too. This beer is all about the raspberries, and it shows it off well. There’s enough of a malt body to balance the raspberries. Still, it’s awfully sweet, but an enjoyable apertif beer.

suurjuust (2587) - 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.

mrjaxson (438) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2016
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 (2072) - 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 (1266) - 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.

Ciaranmt (2) - - DEC 30, 2015 does not count
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!
