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.

Draft at The Porter. Pours a purpleish red with a thin layer of pink head. Floral aroma with strong hints of raspberries. Taste of raspberries with a complimentary amount of carbonation.

Bottle from Beer and Wine. Dark red, almost purple body with pinkish medium head. Nose is fruity, tart. Taste is sweet, of raspberries for sure, quite sweet but not over the top. Tart elements in there, especially towards the finish. Creamy texture and quite alcy in the finish.

I had this on tap, in the nitro version, at Yard House in Fresno. Dark pink color with a tight, creamy white head. This is dangerously drinkable with refreshing raspberry aroma and flavor. A true masterpiece of a fruit beer perfectly fit for summer.

12 ounce bottle from Wegmans, in a shaker glass. Dark pink with a nice white/pink head. Medium bodied with strong raspberry aroma. Raspberry sweetness dominates the taste with hops part of the clean finish.

Smells sickly sweet. Bright red in color. Pull off the raspberry flavor well but strongly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Founders does it right. Expecting another so-so beer, I was surprised, this is a great brew. Not too sweet, just right.

Bottle, thanks Christina! Sweet raspberry aroma with raspberry sourness as well as a bit of wheat malt. Pours light ruby red colored with a thin white head that has some retention and good lacing. Starts with sweet raspberry flavors as well as a bit of wheat maltiness to go along with a light body and lively mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and refreshing with a bit of raspberry sourness that cuts the sweet well before the sweet returns at the very end. Excellent summer beer to cool off with.

Maakun (3632) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016
Tap at Founders. Clear dark pink with light pink head. Lots of sweet raspberries, light dough, bit of grass and herbs. Quite sweet and very light bitter. Medium bodied.

dambor (397) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2016
Pours light red with small head but nice lacing. Aroma: some raspberry, a touch of hops. Taste: the raspberry is clearly present, but nicely counterbalanced by hops. The beer is thankfully not sweet and pretty drinkable. Nice one.
