Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandyRbus is Founders way to celebrate the seasons 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 doesnt feature the best retention. Spotty lacing is left behind. S: Raspberry. Thats kind of it, really, but its a nice singular note regardless. T: The flavors are primarily raspberry juice and cream. Those flavors are nice, but its kind of one note to a fault. I really dont 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, its leaving me at a loss for words. O: I think I preferred Cerise to this one. Ive been looking to try this for a while now, so in that regard, this is a mild letdown. Of course, this beers monotony means I dont have to write a long review. Wooo.

trapped (1512) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 21, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Clear bright red with small pinkish-beige creamy head, faint raspberry aroma, sweet raspberry dominated taste, thick body, medium carbonation, long berry dominated finish. Remarkably un-cough syrup like, considering the alcohol content and the taste.

Bottle. Ruby red body, medium to small head. Aroma has sweet raspberry jam and raspberry candies. Very fruity taste with raspberry juice and not much more to explore. Its not even sour enough to make it interesting. Just sweet raspberry juice with minuscule tartness. I generally love Founders beers but this is heavily overrated while similar beers from "macro" brewers get trashed unanimously just because they dare to be fruity.

Marduk (4203) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 13, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear ruby red color. Tiny size, white head, disappears. Sweet, raspberry, sugary aroma. Mellow and pleasant, not too sweet. Raspberry, but not jammy. Pleasant crisp mouthfeel. Fruity brew.

leebotton (335) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Tart, raspberry aroma no malt or even noticeable hop. Lovely clear and red with a very slightly pink but mainly white head which mostly dissipates quickly. Flavour is deep raspberry. Slightly tangy but not at all too acidic. The malt and hop bill must be so light. Theres the slightest flavour of crisp malt and a gentle hop like bitterness but the only shining flavour is delicious raspberry. Mouthfeel is excellent, slightly silky and soft, neither thin nor heavy. Really clean and Perfectly balanced between flavour, acidity and alcohol content. One of the best beers Ive tried, possibly the best fruit beer. Founders gone done it again!

martjoobolut (1780) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle (from Koht, Tallinn). Pours dark red with whiteish head. The small head stays for some time. Aroma is soapy, raspberries, rhubarb. Flavor is sweet, soapy, raspberries, cherries, sourness, caramel, feels somewhat artificial. Body feels watery. Overall: its drinkable, but disappointing.

Not overly sweet. Can taste the fruit clearly but still with beer. Nice and perfect for hot weather. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma muy bien definido entre la frambuesa y la malta.Color granate, brillante, bien filtrada, carbonatacion alta, espuma ligera de baja retencin. En boca es ligeramente seca, amarga, cida y frutal.Al paladar es fcil de tomar, refrescante, bien integrada. La nota cida resalta ms el carcter de la frambuesa. En resumen es una cerveza agradable, ligera, refrescante y fcil de tomar.
