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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy reddish pink color. The head is a two finger Jigglypuff shade that doesn’t feature the best retention. Spotty lacing is left behind. S: Raspberry. That’s kind of it, really, but it’s a nice singular note regardless. T: The flavors are primarily raspberry juice and cream. Those flavors are nice, but it’s kind of one note to a fault. I really don’t have much to say other than this one would do better on a hot day. M: Medium body, sweet finish, high carbonation. This feel is so average, it’s leaving me at a loss for words. O: I think I preferred Cerise to this one. I’ve been looking to try this for a while now, so in that regard, this is a mild letdown. Of course, this beer’s monotony means I don’t have to write a long review. Wooo.

Love me some Founder’s, but I’m not digging this beer. Sweet beyond sweet, a fruit beer with a wine cooler fetish. Big, tart raspberry front is nice, but the overwhelming sugary finish overpowers any nuance.

the aroma is fruity and spicy with shades of garden berries, candy, bubble gum and flowers... the taste is rather sweet, with notes of raspberries, lollipop, bubble gum and some other berries... sweet, tart and dry aftertaste...

Ruby red, white head. Lots of raspberry aroma and taste. Sweet, but not too sweet. Where’s the cake?

Can from Tanakaya. Pours a clear cherry juice color with a finger of pink head that dissipates. Very nice raspberry forward nose with cherry and faint cream. Reminds me a bellevue or lindemans beer. Super sweet on the palate, yes the fruit is there but the sugar high is insane. Like a cough drop or something in the finish with some raspy carbonation. Too sweet. I like my fruit beers much drier.

On tap. Pours bright raspberry red, small white soap head. Aroma of raspberry throat drops. Taste of same. Some type of herbal undertones in finish. Reminds of medicinal qualities too much to enjoy fully.

Great. Reminds me of Lindemann framboise. Amber pour very sweet raspberry. Not my style, but very good.

Really summer beer. Good fresh balance of fruit acidity and sweetness, maybe a tiny touch too sweet. Great raspberry taste. Indeed dangerously drinkable.

Can at Rose & Thistle, Frimley. 04/09/16. Smells like rasberry lemonade. Rby red with a brownish tint. Flat. No head. The description is correct - sweet and tart. Again, tastes like a rasberry lemonade. Medium bodied, with a dry slightly oily finish. However the finish also takes on a saltyness. Docking points for that. Pretty good - a dangerous strength. A beer alcopop.

Can from Number 23. Ruby pink pour with no head. Sweet, bright raspberry aroma. Flavour is all raspberry as well, though a little too sweet.

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.
