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.

An interesting "beer". The raspberry is quite intense and I didn’t detect any aspect of "beer" aside from the carbonation. I love raspberries, so the slight sweetness and very intense tangy flavor were very nice.

Rubaeus pours a dark ruby red with a thin bubbly beige head that doesn’t last long. The aroma is dominated by raspberries. The flavor is raspberry heavy with a hint of molasses and bread. Overall this is a pretty decent beer. The beer is very sweet.

hackobock (1349) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2014
August 10, 2014. Bottle. Pours hazy red with a small, quickly dissipating, off-white head. Aroma is lots of raspberries, sugar, light grain. Taste is raspberries, light/medium sweet with light tart. Medium bodied.

Desverger (2094) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from SuperBest Ama’r Foodmarket, Copenhagen - pours a fuzzy red colour with tiny white/pinkish head. Aroma and taste is medium sweet fruity with prominent raspberry, some light malts, smooth mouthfeel, decent fruit beer this.

GlasgowTAD (37) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Raspberry red as you would expect. No head, unsurprisingly. This is very sweet and tastes almost like raspberry diluting juice. However, it is quite refreshing. The sweetness makes this a summer beer but the ABV is a bit on the high side for this to be considered a session beer; ABV is also well hidden by the sweetness. Too much syrup IMO, a minute sourness is present but disappears quickly.

Leini (774) - SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014
355ml bottle. Red body with a medium pink head. At first it tastes quite nice and fruity but it becomes too much as you proceed imo.

DanielBrown (3809) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle from Wine Lord, Brum. Really pleasant. Nice pink colour. Subtle sweet fruity aroma and flavour. Not too sour, but tangy. Like a farmer’s homemade raspberry syrup.

Pyrmir (3351) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2014
355 ml flaska. Rubinröd med rosavitt skum. Doften påminner om hallon/lakritsgodis, en del färska hallon, hallonkärnor med en gnutta malt i bakgrunden. Smaken är ungefär likadan, tunga godistoner, lätt syra, hallon och medelhög beska som sitter i ett tag. Eftersmaken lämnar en lite klibbig känsla av godis. Helt ok bärs som fått oförtjänt dåliga recensioner

Smaker bringebærdrops fra Brynhild. Litt brun-ish i fargen så men alt i alt veldig bringebær. Kjæresten min som ikke liker øl likte den. Er i lambic-land.

Zekada (136) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma has a strong tone of raspberries. Pours dark red with a medium pink head. Taste has tones of alcohol, raspberries and isn’t as sweet as you might expect. Though it dosen’t really taste much. The body is fuller than expected but still a bit thin. A fun beer which brings a couple of surprises.

Heavenly good smell of raspberries. The taste is also very much raspberry and lightly malty. Nevertheless, I think this is a beer to taste. Wonderful bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. I just love these beers. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
