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.

VastActiv (4978) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle 0.355l at Kitty’s, Helsinki. Best by: 02/03/2015. Colour is deep red with small slightly reddish white head. Aromas and flavors: Berries, raspberries, some sourness, hints of tartness and sweetness. Nice and soft. Some lactic elements when warming up. One of the best of this style but not my beer.

harrisoni (16533) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
On tap at BrewDog Camden. Hazy raspberry red beer thin collar white bubbles. Raspberry fruit and butter in the aroma. Settles down in mouth to raspberry fruit like slightly sour sweet raspberry and a soft slightly caramel sweet raspberry sour finish. Interesting fruit beer. Good mix of sweet and sour. Something doesn’t quite ring right though

RichTheVillan (5795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear burgundy red pour with a light pink head, raspberry aroma, taste is quite sweet and jammy, tiny hint of malt, not the most beery drink but easy drinking.

Beautiful glowing rose red. Big puffy head that lasts for a few minutes. Medium height crown of lace. Sweats outside the glass. Aroma is tart: raspberries, cranberries and a hint of cherry. Smells like a legitimate raspberry puree; it’s not some saccharine extract in the nose that cloys. Impressive. The flavor is very reminiscent of Lindeman’s Frambois Lambic: it’s just tart enough, just sweet enough, and just thick enough, but it’s not too much of any of those things. The tartness really comes through in a big way. There is a slight syrupy quality to it, but that is fleeting, and it ends up being rather smooth. I’m not sure if this is MY kid of summer ale, but it’s absolutely packed with berry flavors.

Holmen2 (2560) - NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
Red. Refreshing aroma of raspberries and raspberry bonbons. Similar taste. Well balanced. Bitter berried in aftertaste. A fine summer beer.

abemorsten (3475) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
On tap at Cardinal. Clear copper red body with a white rim. Intense raspberry juice nose. Sweet, ripe raspberries with a red currant acidity and bitterness and a pleasant cereal finish. Light to medium bodied.

Sigmund (6231) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger (also available there on 355 ml bottles). Red colour, thin off-white head. Strong and lovely aroma of ripe raspberries and raspberry flowers. Medium sweet flavour, distinct notes of raspberries throughout, refreshing. Nice fruit beer.

BroSpud (2007) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2014
On draft at Rail Trail Flatbread. Pours red. Looks and taste like a raspberry soda. A really good raspberry soda. This is one of the better fruit beers I have tasted and if I liked fruit beers I would love this one. A bit too sweet and fruity for my taste but very well done.

12 oz bottle, senses off slightly because I smoked a cigar during tasting. Pours a deep pinkish red. Nose is almost all ride raspberries, fruit roll-ups, slight orange citrus, finished with a malty presence. tastes of huge ripe red raspberries, with a slight metallic finish. Very similar to a Framboise lambic, without the sour aspect. Although not my usual cup of tea, this is a very nicely done fruit beer.
