COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandyRbus is Founders way to celebrate the seasons 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.

Noticeably dark red, aroma is very weak, no fruit presence. Flavor is mostly malt, sweet, relatively thick, and a decent raspberry tartness. Almost on the cranberries side.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, deep ruby color with a small off-white head. The aroma has sweet raspberry, wheat, and cereal; like a lot of berry fruit beers. The flavor has a cleaner raspberry character, fresh, sweet and tart. Also seems like there are some cranberries and blackberries, too. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy, coating mouthfeel. Good fruit beer.

On tap. Dark murky red color. Loads of raspberries. Sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, and with a touch of tart. Decent amount of carbonation lends to a very crisp finish.

TheHopster (899) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2013
(Bottle). Murky brown-red complexion with pink head and lacing. Light aroma of raspberries and malt. The flavor is nicely tart of fresh raspberry puree. Not overly sweet or cloying. Preferable to many Belgian lambics. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stoutnick (700) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2013
Light raspberry colour. Aroma is the same with a mild tanginess. Taste is very sweet fruit flavour. Very drinkable, but not complex. Bit sickly sweet. Very sessional.

Founders tap takeover at Dan's. The pour is a beautiful ruby. Solid red throughout. The pale head fades down to a film quickly and laces alternate amount. The aroma is packed with raspberries. A little malt comes through underneath, but fruit dominates. The flavor is the same. Very sweet, a little hint that it's an actual ale, but the fruit comes through in the dominant fashion. I love this beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dunn4040 (128) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a beautiful opaque maroon color, with a very thin head that fades into a white film on the top of the beer. Aroma is fresh, mashed raspberries, and a light malty fragrance. Taste is exactly what youd expect from the aroma. Strong raspberry flavors, red grape, and plum. Mouth feel is light with nice carbonation. Very refreshing and enjoyable fruit ale.

Pours red with a light white head. Smells nice, and is tasty. Its not so much a beer as fermented raspberry juice. But its nice.
