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.

Pours a clear deep red with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma of funky raspberries. Sharp, yeasty, lambic flavor of raspberries with a small kick of hops at the end. Very good example of the style.

Bottle from acknud...thanks!! Pours a nice red color with a very small bubbly white head. Aroma is full of raspberries, lemon and wheat. Flavor is sweet and tart with lemon playing a backseat to the raspberries. Is it light and refreshing an d pretty decent fruit beer.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2009 Bottle. Pours a clear red with a small pink head. Poor saturation. Aroma of raspberry fruit juice. Flavor is equally juice-like, maybe a touch more beer-like than some of the fruit beers but still not a very good "beer." A good fruit beer is hard to find... 7/3/6/3/13 (3.2/5)

12 ounce bottle shared by cdumler. Thanks Chris! Pours a strawberry red color. Or shall I say raspberry red? Small head. Aroma of raspberries with some bready notes. Taste is raspberries, sugar, bread and cheese. Medium bodied.

TheAlum (6119) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of the Binny’s Singles Rack (Orland Park, IL). The backlog continues on this Sunday. Pours a reddish tinged amber, largely ruby red notes with small white bubbly head that dissipates to a film a bit hazy. Aromas are a touch of funk, raspberry puree, and some light malt. Natural raspberry, not much artificial about this. Initial is a surprising gentle brew, light bodied, quenching, and quaffable. Natural raspberries sour the beer, also leaving some nice pulpy sweetness. Everything about this beer is largely raspberry, and is even markably tasty a few months out of its prime. A touch of sweetness and raspberry lingers in the finish, blending well with a touch of the tartness. Sessionable. A true fruit beer representative. Cheers!

On nitro in the taproom.. had a sample... if this were my thing I’d drink a dozen of ’em. Creamy, well balanced tart / sweet thing. The nitro is a nice touch.

nefarious (220) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2009
absolutely stunning pour into a snifter. Deep ruby red with a small white head. And an unbeleiveable aroma of fresh raspberries. Smae with the flavor and you can even taste the seeds! It sour and at the same time sweet. The finnish is clean with no trace of alcohol........well maybe a touch. Holy shit this is good.....not a normal beer so its hard to score it as such, but truly innovative and the reason I drink craft beer. WOW.

reggiedunlop (3381) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2009
pours a very nice rose color with a thick light pink head. very soapy lacing. aroma is not as pungent as i expected but definitely displays the raspberry balnced out by a light hoppiness. flavor is much the same with a light tartness to it. motuhfeel is a bit thin but leaves a refreshing rasberry aftertaste...nice dessert beer.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 12oz bottle, wonderful sour-sweet raspberry aroma, deep red/pink color. Amazing flavor, a complex combination of sweet and sour. The palate is reminiscent of eating whole raspberries. This beer has the raspberry flavor of a framboise lambic without being as sweet. The carbonation level is perfect and balances the sweet-sour raspberry flavor very well. The most intense raspberry taste of any U.S. beer I’ve had. Absolutely delicious and well worth a trip to Michigan just to taste it.
