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.

Nice red color with huge raspberry aroma. Sweet. Refreshing sweet raspberry taste. A little too sweet for me though . A bit too much on the raspberry side.

Brentv (342) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2014
From bottle, this pours a hazy red copper with little head and no lacing. Aroma of raspberries. Taste is sweet. There is the flavor of a lot of berries, but this is intensely sweet and almost like a wine cooler.

Skinnyviking (7000) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
Draught at Søernes Ølbar. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing white head. Hazy dark red body. Sweet and yet acidic raspberries aroma and flavor with nutty notes. Low carbonation, long dry and bitter sweet finish.

Nische (676) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2014
Maybe the biggest letdown of the year. Hazy reddish brown color, small white head. Sweet, raspberry scent. Sweet chemical raspberry taste a little bit like artificial candy.

jstonerock24 (125) - Englewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Aroma is of raspberry purée with a hint of caramel. This rather carbonated but works well with the style. The flavor is raspberry up front and through to the finish. Very sweet and refreshing

Sizzler80 (459) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 30, 2014
I could drink my weight in this stuff. Love it. Cherry like pour with a good white head that dissipates. Raspberries, caramel, strawberries, balsamic. Beautiful balance between tart and sweet. Awesome.

beer_est_deus (646) - örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
Lätt oklar, orange-rosa med röd-brunt skum. Doft: Hallon i olika former, smultron läsk, Linnea (blomman😉), melon godis. Lite för mycket läsk/godis. Smak: Hallon soda, smultron läsk, malt, citronsyra, lite trä och jäst. Samma som doften, lite för mycket läsk.

gnoff (7818) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
355 ml bottle thanks to Knä (non-ratebeer), sampled in Ludvika on August 25, 2014.
Hazy reddish brown color, small white head. Sweet, raspberry scent. Raspberry, sweet, smågodis, chemical taste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Candy aftertaste.

Stine (1548) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Electric, ruby red. Balanced and clean presentation of the fruit. No chalkiness, no acerbic seediness. Underlying marzipan and rich caramelized malt shades are winkingly present. Over-sugared body, lacquer jelly-like finish.

nilsas (1350) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
Fin rødlig gyllen farge. Tykt lag skum. Duft av friske bringebær. Frisk nydelig smak av bringerbær som sitter. Denne er nydelig for dessert.
