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.

I could drink my weight in this stuff. Love it. Cherry like pour with a good white head that dissipates. Raspberries, caramel, strawberries, balsamic. Beautiful balance between tart and sweet. Awesome.

beer_est_deus (646) - örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
Lätt oklar, orange-rosa med röd-brunt skum. Doft: Hallon i olika former, smultron läsk, Linnea (blomman😉), melon godis. Lite för mycket läsk/godis. Smak: Hallon soda, smultron läsk, malt, citronsyra, lite trä och jäst. Samma som doften, lite för mycket läsk.

355 ml bottle thanks to Knä (non-ratebeer), sampled in Ludvika on August 25, 2014.
Hazy reddish brown color, small white head. Sweet, raspberry scent. Raspberry, sweet, smågodis, chemical taste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Candy aftertaste.

Stine (1547) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Electric, ruby red. Balanced and clean presentation of the fruit. No chalkiness, no acerbic seediness. Underlying marzipan and rich caramelized malt shades are winkingly present. Over-sugared body, lacquer jelly-like finish.

nilsas (1350) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
Fin rødlig gyllen farge. Tykt lag skum. Duft av friske bringebær. Frisk nydelig smak av bringerbær som sitter. Denne er nydelig for dessert.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy copper colour, small head. Raspberries, pecan and caramel up front. Sweet with medium body and dense mouthfeel. Balsamic raspberries, strawberries and caramel, some syrup. Low bitterness. Concentrated and harmonious. Well made fruit beer.

bytemesis (3099) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle, several times, just forgot to rate it. Pours crystal clear hot pink with a medium fizzy light pink head that dissipates quickly, nevertheless leaving good lacing in its wake. Aroma is raspberry jam. Flavor is medium sweet, a bit of bitterness, jammy, with bitter notes more like leaves and seeds than hops. Light body, soft carbonation. A bit soda-like, but still an enjoyable brew.

Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
355ml bottle at 60’s Palaver. Tiny bubbly surface to a dark red coloured body. Sweet berries on the nose, semi-dry. Flavours of rather sweet raspberries, bready malts beneath. A fruit beer that simply gets a tad too sweet. Alright in smaller amounts (Joensuu 16.08.2014).
