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.

Tänk hallonsodaöl, det tycker iaf jag är en perfekt beskrivning av denna ljusa klarröda öl med en liten kritvit skumkrona. Mycket hallon men hintar även av jordgubbar och smultron. Tycker denna va riktigt trevlig serverad kall i solen! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EvanFriend (410) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Strong raspberry taste, hints of raspberry jam towards the end. This would be much better but for the alcohol aftertaste that gives it a bit of a cough syrup flavor. Still OK, but at 5.7% ABV, I shouldn’t taste the alcohol.

Ruby brownish colour with little head. Aroma is strongly and mainly strawberry, a bit juicy. Taste is strawberry, a bit artificial in texture. Somewhat bitter finish.

elosop (203) - SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
Ljust klarröd med ytterst lite snabbt försvinnande skum. Doftar lite som svag jordgubbs/hallonsaft. Smaken lätt jolmigt söt, ganska mkt maltsötma i botten. Eftersmaken tämligen tunn och kort. Med lite is fungerar den som läcker törstsläckare!

Pours clear red with a finger of pinkish white head. Aroma of raspberry, wild strawberry, almond icing. Taste is sweet raspberry and baking soda. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

SaintMatty (5855) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2015
355ml Bottle - Pinky red in colour. Raspberry, blackcurrant and wheat in the aroma. Sweet and tangy taste with raspberries dominating, along with hints of jam. The raspberry tastes a bit artificial although this beer is very refreshing
