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.

Brandywine apple in color--small off-white head...delicious pungent raspberry aroma...refreshing flavors jammed with raspberry...sweet in general, but not overwhelming...a little tart, again not overwhelming...a cereal flavor that reminds me of Kix...had this draft as well at AC beer fest...I loved it then , and love it now...one dimensional flavor, but who cares?...I’m a sucker for the raspberry

Hmmm..........well from the looks of the ratings, i’m gonna say htis one is overated. A sweet/sour funky raspberry aroma, not unpleasant, but not great. The flavour is sour, and slightly funky, and it’s leaving a DMS kinda buttery flavour in my mouth. Nah not my bag.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle thanks to decaturstevo. Poured ruby red with a thin pink head. Lots of raspberry in the aroma. Sweet malts in the flavor with a tart fruit backing. Light body and dry. Very enjoyable!

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2008
12 oz bottle. Light reddish pour. Aroma is overwhelmingly fruity, yet a bit sour-smelling. Taste is over-the-top fruity, with barely a hint of the 7% alcohol.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Crisp reddish brown pour with a fairly strong raspberry nose. Spritzy mouthfeel delivers a decent and easy-drinking raspberry tart...refreshing and unchallenging. Fairly high ABV surprises, spritzy carbonation refreshes, and tart raspberries quench the thirst on a hot summer day.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very reddish brown, with slight lacy pink head. Aroma of raspberries is prominent. Flavor is sweet raspberries, with the fruit flavor extremely prominent. Aftertaste is wheat (just so that you remember it’s not a wine cooler). 6.9% alcohol is exceedingly well masked. Very tasty, but somewhat like alcoholic soda.

BillWyce (887) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle, poured into English pint glass. Mostly red in color, with a pink-ish head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of raspberry, as one would expect. Not as strong a raspberry flavor as I had expected (as compared to Lindeman’s Framboise, for example), but noticable enough. Not a beer for everyone, as some reviews indicate, but a good, drinkable summer beeer without an overwhelmingly fruity taste.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle, courtesy Santa. Pours a dark pink color, with a fizzy head and very little lacing. Tons of raspberries in the nose, dry and sweet, vanilla, and some strawberry. Dry malts start off the flavor, following the first wave of raspberries. Some hay, too. Pretty mild overall. Crisp and refreshing, tastes a bit artificial though (not that it is, but that it tastes that way). Still decent for what it is.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2008
12oz Bottle: Pours ruby red w/ a small light pink head that doesn’t stick around very long. Tart raspberry aroma. Flavor is tart raspberry too, but there is a bit of malt to go w/ the raspberry onslaught. Great summer beer, but I do think this one is way better on tap. Doesn’t seem quite as smooth in the bottle.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours ruby red with a small pinkish head that doesn’t stick around very long and leaves no lacing. Smell is, not surprisingly, raspberries, mostly sweet but with a hint of sourness at the end. The taste is also dominated by raspberries but there is definitely a beer backbone in there - malts and a faint hop taste in the finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. The drinkability is pretty good on this one especially since the sweetness is toned down a little in the taste.
