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.

Wow. Amazing. Can?t believe I came across this. Smells like fresh raspberry jam. Tastes the same with some nice tartness. One of the best fruit beers I?ve ever had.

big fruit aroma, citrus, passion fruit, raspberries. hazy deep red color. big raspberry flavor. raspberry flavor dominates throughout. sweet. a creamy quality to the flavor/body. a little sweet for me, though you can get a little malt under the fruit.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy darkish red with a light pink one finger head. Really no lacing and just the slightest bit of head retention. Aroma is full of hearty raspberry along with some grass and hay. Quite sweet taste with raspberries. A little too sweet but it doesn’t really seem artificial which is nice. Very little bitterness with a sticky mouthfeel. Oddly not real refreshing due to the sweetness. Overall, one of my least favorite beers from Founders. Decent flavor but too sweet to really enjoy.

Pours purple and red with a pinkish head. Aroma is berry and sweet malt. Flavor is as advertised. Lots of sweet and tart raspberries. Sweet malt and a little bitterness in the finish.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Tap at Fischmans served in a tulip. Pomegranate color with a pillowy pink head. Head formed two fingers tall and slowly recedes leaving strong lace behind. Cherry juice fragrance with hints if wheat cereal. Taste is cherry juice forward with muted wheat malt. Above average sweetness but fruit tartness lingers on the tongue. Way better than Founders precious cherry wheat.

The pink color was unlike most other beers, but obviously the raspberries were responsible for this hue. The head was fizzy and one finger thick at most. The beer looked more like a rosé wine except with carbonation. The smell also was clearly indicative of the fruit used in making the beer, with strong raspberry scent dominating all else. Taste was dominated by tart-sweet raspberries, some malt sweetness, and showed no hops. The mouthfeel was crisp and simple. This is clearly a fruit dominated drink, and barely a beer at all, but it was good on its own terms.

Pours a deep red cedar into a wineglass with a fluffy brown head. Aroma is fresh raspberries. The nose on this is great-- no artificial notes, just raspberry front and center. Palate is soft carbonation, sweet and tart fruit. Solid but muted caramel malt back bone. This gives New Glarus Raspberry Tart a run for its money.
