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.

Solid and refreshing but not overly sweet. Unfortunately not showing up on my beer buddy app, frustrating.

Light pink red hue. Nose as advertised of raspberries. Taste is sweet but not quite cloying. Raspberries abound.

bottle. As a lover of raspberries i had to try. Not a fan of fruity beer as i dont like their cherry one but this is tart enough to overcome any prejudice of mine. Not bad but I couldnt do more than one. Smells like fruit juice. Tastes like fruit juice with kick.

Tap at Founders Fest 2013. Pours a deep red color. Very creamy and everlasting head. Strong fruity raspberry flavor with some definite sourness. Loved it.

Bottle into glass. Deep dark red with a thin nearly pink head. Nose is all fruit with mild funk. Taste is all raspberry. Mild carbonation, medium long finish. Fruity and crisp, not too syrupy. Ok but nothing special.

The son of blushing monk. I know it’s only a 6% beer, but I’m really curious how this will change in 6 months, 1 and 2 years. Re-rate coming.

Potent raspberry aroma and sparkling red pour with a fruit forward taste and tickling mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. The pour is a hazy raspberry. The aroma is all fruit, big nose. The taste is super sweet, but good. Could not drink a lot, but very nice refreshing beer. Can se how this transformed into Blushing Monk, which I really like.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 Aroma is fantastic, overwhelming raspberry and some malt. Appearance is between a red and a purple, with a small, light purple head. Taste is great, sweet raspberry with a malty backbone, finishing light. Mouthfeel is sticky, pretty thick for a fruit. Overall, I plan to buy this one throughout the summer because it is fantastic.
