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.

A: Sugary sweet. Raspberry tartness comes through. A hint of malt. A: Looks Amazing (poured into a flute). Ruby red. Little head with a bit of red in it. Very unique color. T: Very balanced on the taste. Sweet, tart, malty, fruit mustiness. P: Must on the finish is a little weird. But sits like a weak sweet tart. Overall this is an amazing beer. A great fruit beer that isn’t super weak (just like the description on the bottle!) A must have summer beer that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Pours a pinkish red with a thin white head. Huge raspberry aroma. Taste is sweet but not overly sweet. Refreshingly juicy.

Bottle. Pour is deep red/purple with a small pink head. Little retention/lace. Aroma of raspberry, wheat. Taste is sweet, raspberry jam. Palate is soft, quenching, sweet finish. Really nice.

Sweet jammy raspberry fruit. One of the best fruit beers I’ve had. Another Founder’s winner.

This is a top-notch summer brew that, as I understand it, was brewed with the intention of ’dethroning’ the American pale wheat ale as the unquestioned king of easy-drinking Summer styles. Rubaeus makes a good case that APWAs should play second fiddle to other, more challenging and equally refreshing summer styles--saisons, kolschs, or, in this case, a full-bodied fruit beer. Highly recommended.

Cherry red body; delicate creamy pink head. Super awesome raspberry aroma. Awesome raspberry puree flavor, super fresh. I don’t normally give scores this high, but this is so tasty and so simple and so easy to drink. Not complex, just extremely well made.

Draft. Deep amber with almost no head. Aroma is straight raspberries. Taste adds a strong wheat backbone. Smooth palate with a touch of carb. Tart and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (1866) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
355 mL bottle. Dark pink-brown. Smells like beer and raspberries. Tastes like beer and raspberries. But real raspberries, and the base beer is deliciously malty. Not a fan of fruit beers, but this one ain’t bad.

Bottle into a flute. Ruby head, not many bubbles though. Smells of sweetness and taste. Not as good as New Glarus fruit beers.

12 oz - With respect to other fruit beers, this thing is awesome. Yes, it’s never going to go toe to toe with Stone IPA or anything, but it is by no means subtle.
