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.

Draft at Hawthrone’s. Pours a hazy maroon with thin white head and minimal lacing. Nose of raspberries, jolly ranchers, cranberry, grenadine. Lightish body, nice sweet flavor without being cloying. Not bad at all.

I tried this beer for the first time in class and loved it! Fruity but not obnoxiously sweet

This was a great refreshing beer. It has the perfect amount of raspberry taste.

This is by far my favorite Founders beer. It is a purple/red color with a frothy light purple head. It smells like raspberries and tastes like juice! It has a strong raspberry flavor. It’s very sweet, which I love. It is perfect for a summer day. I could drink glass after glass.

hershiser2 (1191) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle:Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours deep red with a small off-pink head. Smells of sweet raspberries. Tastes of bittersweet raspberries, Kool-Aid, and candy.

MrBeerFanatic (807) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a deep light ruby red (almost amber) with a fizzle head. Aromas of tart raspberry in a wheat focused malty way. Flavors light malty caramel mixed with raspberries that taste slightly artificial or at least extract. HIgh sweetness. Reminds of a beer I made with raspberry extract but this one is much sweeter. Has a nice light tart finish. There is just a light aftertaste of grainy malt (maize). All around this is basically one dimensionally but to be expected. A desert brew (due to high sweetness).

bottle - Pours bright red with an aroma that’s full of berries. The flavor is sweet without being cloying. The tart raspberries help balance the sweetness, as does a little hops bitterness. This is a fruit beer down right. Quite enjoyable.

Mrnoluv (120) - long beach, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
The smell is nothing but raspberry, that great fruity smell, the look is a merky reddish brown, the taste is somewhat like a wine color from the 80’s. Sweet on the swallow, a little tangy, hint of bitter fruit is left on the palate. You couldn’t go much more on the ABV as it is already a sweet drink, a little more hop would help it, but it’s a good fruit beer which I’m not a big fan of.

This beer has a great sweetness that is expected from its bright redish/pinkish hue. Would be perfect on a summer day and paired with salty foods. I would not be able to drink too many, however, because of its sweetness

Nice and not too sweet. Interesting in features and quite fruity in aroma. Easy to drink.

On tap at the KBS release. Out of all the beers we tried that night, this was my least favorite, but it was still good. Light ruby colored body. Taste of sour cranberries with some malt characters. I may have rated this higher, but living in Wisconsin and having access to New Glarus and there tart beers have really made all others tough to compare. Still pretty good.
