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.

Draught at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 23 July. Poured a clear pink, with no head. Aroma of berries, sugar and grass. Sweet fruit flavours, with some straw and melon. Finish was brown sugar, cooked fruit and raspberry.

lusikka (7693) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby amber colour with a small head. Aroma of raspberry soda, some nettles and malts. Flavour is very, very sweet with raspberry syrup, pie crust, some herbal notes, caramel, tangy tart raspberry seed notes and residual sugar. Light bodied with a sticky sweet raspberry finish. Feels raw and way too sweet and sugary. Some similarities with artificially sweetened soda lambics.

Jorn69 (2679) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Tap @ Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen 15/7-14. Sweet with a lot of raspberries and light acidic notes, a bit like the Swedish lemonade "Hallonsoda". The finish is dry and sweet with raspberries.

Very sweet and fruity raspberry beer. You could tell it had a little bit more to it than some of fruit beers though. It was good for what I wanted at the time but not something I could drink more than one of.

I think its just me, the taste reminded me of Rekorderlig cider. Is it just me?

olio (9288) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2014
355 ml bottle.
Pours hazy rose-mahogany color with a small steady head. Lots of cherries and raspberries on the nose, maybe a dash of rowan berries also, quite nice refreshing set anyway. Intense raspberry and bilberry mesh flavor, sweet hints of strawberries and faint gooseberry notes. Sticky sweet palate, yet surprisingly refreshing tangy on the aftertaste. I feared for way worse than this actually is. ..although it gets way too sweet as it warms up, so I’d recommend drinking this chilled.

Humlehode (593) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2014
Pours red, no head. Taste of raspberries is really overpowering. Not what I expected, actually more like a cider than a beer. Nice balance of the residual sweetness against the sourness of the raspberries. Overall a good fruit drink, but a beer? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Magenta in color... Aroma of fresh raspberry jam... Flavor is raspberry purée, oak, vanilla... Decent, but hardly a beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks, cards04 for this one. Red body, pink head. Looks nice. Sweet and natural slightly tart raspberry aroma and flavour. Really not incredibly different than like a St. Louis Kriek, though that, for some reason, gets much lower rating. This one is less sweet and more natural tasting. Nice.
