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.

Buy this one for your wives or girlfriends. My wife loved it; unfortunately I’m doing the rating so I have to downgrade it a bit. This is rare for me b/c I am a huge fan of Founders. I should have read the fine print that says malt beverage. This comes through in the taste - it’s more Zima or wine cooler than beer.

A red body with a quickly fading pink head. Raspberries and generic malts in the aroma. Nice balance in the flavor. Carbonation seemed high. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a reddish color with a half finger head with a tinge of pink. Nose is definitely raspberry. The taste is also tart raspberries, with a sour ale quality. It's ok - a little gimmicky. Good for rare occasions but I couldn't se drinking more than one, or on a regular basis ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy red burgundy with a thin head. Smells tart with a bit of raspberry. Starts tart with no shortage of raspberry. Heavy on the pallet with a lingering tart. Pure raspberry creates a fresh sweet flavor. No artificial notes.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dirty ruby color, bubbly rim head, thin strings of lace. Taste is malt plus sweet n’ sour raspberry that carries all the way through. Sounds simple, but it works very well. A solid fruit beer similar to a lambic. High Recommendations.

was not a huge fan of this, given some of the other Founders stuff I’ve had. It’s definitely raspberry, but that’s about it. will stay away from this one down the road.

Aroma - dry fruited raspberry with a champagne quality like yeasty tart quality Appearance - ruby body color; hazy; minimal head white head ~ nice look to it Taste - undeniable raspberry flavor and it’s quality, not artificial in any way. Palate - body is light; texture is effervescent, like a champagne; carbonation is fizzy; texture is dry and sweet

Pours red as hell with minimal head. Nose and taste are both the same, overwhelming raspberry, very sweet but not undrinkablely so, some malty sweetness in there, a bit of planty dryness on the finish. Not unpleasant, but definitely one note. I tried mixing this with a chocolate stout, it's really good in that situation, like chocolate raspberry candy. All by itself it fine, not something I'd drink without mixing again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is why all raspberry beers should be sours. This is a good beer but could be better. The raspberry fills your nose from the instant you pour till a few minutes after its gone. Pours a ruddy purple with pinkish head. The taste comes in with raspberry up front and follows with light malt.

Had it on 5/6/14. Pours a dark red with a little bit of pink head. Smells like candy raspberries and wheat. Tastes mostly like malt and sweet raspberry juice. Sticky palate. Interesting but I thought it was just ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
