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.

On draft. Rating from notes. Nice, pink pour with a small light pink head. Aroma of tart, delicious raspberries, mild bready malts. Flavor is showcasing raspberry. Somewhat tart, somewhat sweet from the fruit. Some mild caramel and bready notes as well. Slick bodied, lively carbonation. Finishes mildly tart. Nice.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Aroma: fresh raspberries hit the nose full force, and wind down into notes of warm caramel. Appearance: ruby red and semi-opaque body., foamy white head. great arc of foam as lacing. Taste: Sweet and tart battle it out, but remain nicely balanced for much of the time. Ends in a kind of harsh bitterness, though, and this may be the only reason I’m not giving this beer a rating in the mid to high 4s. Palate: light and sticky, with lively carbo.

On tap at founder..sVery sweet and fruity aroma, extremely sweet feels like a hard cider, love founders beer, but cant help but feel like this receives such a high rating based off founders great reputation.

I’ve had this a few times now. Rating is from a sparse note, on tap at Proof: Nice fruity jam. Sweet berries. Little dry in the finish. Very slight tartness. Enjoyable. 7.2

Beautiful ruby red color stirs up intrusive white head & lace. Good legs & retention. Jammy nose, smells like de-thawed raspberry concentrate.

Sweet fruits, creamy body yet still carbed. Mild tartness arises midway through, only to be shuttered by the finish. A touch sweet at the end, yet not overly so. Plenty of malt to support the raspberries.

Reminds me of a NG fruited beer. Better than I expected, likely because I'm not a fan of Blushing Monk or Cerise. Rubaeus is a good step in the right direction. Add some souring yeast & bacteria and I'll drink this all day, every day.

RRistow12 (384) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tasted from bottle. Normally not a fruit beer fan but founders knows how to do it right. Pours a deep ruby read with a fluffy pink head with good lacing. Aroma of fresh raspberries. Taste is a perfect balance of sweetness and tartness with an excellent natural raspberry taste. Almost no detectable bitterness. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Excellent fruit beer by Founders. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught from the Jeffrey. Poured reddish obviously with a white pink head. Lots of rapberry’s actually but not too sickly sweet. Well done from founders.

Campy877 (180) - Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear but deep red. Aroma is that of a basket of fresh picked raspberries. Tastes like a less carbonated version of a traditional European lambic. Great change of pace from the citrus shandies out there. Quite tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle, clear red with small pink tinged white head, smells of abundant raspberries... Flavor is lots of ripe raspberries like a raspberry soda ... Reminiscent of a lambic... Tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
