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.

ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2013
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.

zubblwump (25) - Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Pours a ruby red with bubbly light pink head. Aroma is very faint... Not really getting anything other then a hint of "beer". Taste is interesting... Mostly sweet, a tiny bit tart, and oddly enough almost none of the "beer" taste that I smell. So weird, I smell beer as I bring it to my mouth, but then taste only fruit. It’s good, but in a totally unique way.

Candy Apple red color with a pink head. Raspberry aroma. Medium bodied and more tart than sweet. Raspberry dominates the flavor and the finish.

SinH4 (2185) - Garching, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2016
Bottled April 2015. Hazy brown-ruby color with pinkish head. Aroma is raspberries, tart, Skiwasser. Taste is sweetish raspberries, some malt sweetness, tart. Finish is surprisingly dry. Not bad, but not too special either.

Sebilinz (1603) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 7, 2016
Tap.Reddish brown body pink head. Aroma is cherries. Taste is sweet and cherries with malts. Aftertaste is sweet. Not my kind of beer.

dnicolaescu (1675) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 1, 2016
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Almost clear amber-pink, decent beige-pink head. It’s full-on raspberry jam upfront. After a while, some cidery notes add to the fresh fruit, as well as some earthy/dried leaves hops. The taste is similar - not overly sweet, mostly fruity - tons os raspberry. It’s half and half a decent natural raspberry beverage and a fruity kind of beer. The finish is light hoppy and raspberry seed bitterness. Some fermented fruit astringency too. Not bad, certainly not an alco-pop style fruit beer, but still too far away from being a beer to me.

tightslice (789) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle from BevMo in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is raspberries. Taste is mildy sweet raspberries with some toothiness. Not getting much of the beer side.

Bottle at Tasty post ride. Way better than I remember on tap. Matches deScription they gave of "liquid raspberries". Tart yet sweet and super light on the palate. Crisp, refreshing. Like a delicious watered down raspberry vinegar- sort of. Not exactly beer like, but tasty.

Big fan of founders, but this is awful. Like drinking syrup or Zima. Bad on so many levels
