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.

Bottle courtesy me! Pours a clear, reddish pink color with a giant pink head. Aroma is big raspberry, fruity and more raspberry. Flavor is big raspberry, sweet, syrupy. Finishes sweet, fruity and wow. Big. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cwsample (163) - Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle from Cavie. Pours a very dark red with a thin white head. Smells like raspberry soap. Tastes very sour, but not a huge presence of raspberry willing is surprising.

Let me start by saying I love raspberries and my rating probably reflects that. If you don’t like powerful raspberry flavor you wouldn’t enjoy this beer. It mimics a very lambic style without technically falling into lambic parameters. The aroma is very fruity. It has a lovely foggy red appearance. The taste is initially a sweet raspberry flavor followed by an aftertaste of raspberry tartness. The flavor of this beer is not complex at all but it is very tasty. Fizzy flavorful palate that lacks complexity.

Cloudy, deep amber/brown, Medium body, lean texture but rich in flavor, avg length. Nicely balanced bitterness, sweetness and acidity Only hint of raspberry, despite the effort, Pleasant, nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy reddish pink color. The head is a two finger Jigglypuff shade that doesn’t feature the best retention. Spotty lacing is left behind. S: Raspberry. That’s kind of it, really, but it’s a nice singular note regardless. T: The flavors are primarily raspberry juice and cream. Those flavors are nice, but it’s kind of one note to a fault. I really don’t have much to say other than this one would do better on a hot day. M: Medium body, sweet finish, high carbonation. This feel is so average, it’s leaving me at a loss for words. O: I think I preferred Cerise to this one. I’ve been looking to try this for a while now, so in that regard, this is a mild letdown. Of course, this beer’s monotony means I don’t have to write a long review. Wooo.

Bottle gracias a adnielsen. Pours a dark ruby color. Aroma is raspberries. Taste is mild, not overly sweet, fruity. Not bad.

adnielsen (9619) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Justin! Pours a hazy red violet appearance with a pinkish head. Spritzy, raspberry, Italian soda aroma. Tart rich raspberries, chewy berry, somewhat tart, juicy fruity flavor. Pretty damn decent fruit beer but it ain’t no New Glarus, bro.

czar (4924) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
pours hazy amber-reddish with a small off-white head, some retention and lacing. raspberry daiquiri - sweetness, malt-based beverage feeling, hint of lemon, some leafy grassiness, hint of citric acid. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily and it feels a tad heavy, cloying and grassy finish. DP.
