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.

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.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass several times and a snifter other times. There wasn’t any difference. The appearance was a cherry red color with some light tinges of hazy brown along the sides of the beer. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated quickly and didn’t leave any lacing. The smell was tart cherry. The taste took the tart cherry and made it seem to come across slightly sour and bitter. There’s a dry tart cherry-like finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with not much of a sessionable quality to it. Overall, this is most likely a one and done for me as its just too tart and sour all over.

Raspberry ale perfect for summer, but don't expect to have two of this in a row. The flavor is intense but too heavy. Nice for one shot deal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROBC3366 (518) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours mostly opaque berry red with a bubbly pink-tinged white head. Wet lacing. Aroma is florals and raspberries in the wet grass. Taste is juice, raspberries, Chardonnay. Quite dry and short but refreshing. Mostly sweet, just a touch of bitterness. Caramel malty backbone. Not a massive fruit beer fan, but this is a good one and very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dpjuart (1049) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Pours a fizzy red with white head. Bottle from GE in Altoona. Nose is tart rasberries.....that’s pretty much it. Mild malt notes, but not much - all sweet fruit. Very lambic-esque, lots of raspberry, some strawberry, sugary and lingering, with some syrupy notes at the end. Interesting. A "one drink"-er.

allmyvinyl (2795) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2014
355 ml bottle from great grog. Pours cherry red, short-lived pink head. Aromas are raspberry, not surprisingly, and candi sugar. Taste is more raspberries, sweet. Bit one dimensional, but not bad.

jookos (1927) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle@5p. Reddish hazy. Pretty much just ripe raspberries on nose, some pale maltyness. Light med bodied, sweet flavours, but some acidity to prevent it from being cloying. Similar to a framboise, but without the malty acidity. Probably pretty good, if you’re into fruit beers. And don’t like the acidity of lambic- based ones.

VictorStr (1202) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
Tonvis av röda bär i aromen. Spännande smak, balanserar mellan syrligheten sötman och fruktig/druvig-heten.

12 oz bottle. Pours bright pink/red, white head, aroma of raspberries and ya, just raspberries, taste is the same. I’m comfortable enough in my manhood to have this without worrying what other people thought of my sexuality, but I can see how some might be a bit shy from having this in public.
