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.

This may change your mind about fruit beers. Beautiful to look at, opaque red-brown with nice tannish-pink frothy head. Gentle aroma of fresh raspberries. Taste is beautifully balanced, mostly fresh raspberries; sweet, like fruit, but not like sugar; enough malt to give the beer more substance. Refreshing. Overall - Founders does it again - great beer experience, lots of finesse.

Its a great beer! It pours a rich red color. It smells like fresh berries. It blends in sugar, raspberries, some nuts, touch of cream, and finishes clean. Its not too sweet, and its great. For my own tastes if they could make it a bit more tart like a framboise I might have to give 5 stars.

It pours a close burgundy with a pink head. The aroma has a blast of raspberries, vinegar, salt, and other dry fruits. It definitely has a raspberry flavor with salt, and sweetness. It has a dry finish to it.

Draft. Aroma is dull raspberry with a hint of sweet and sour. Appearance is a bronze red with a light pink head. Taste is raspberry with sweet and sour mixed in. Palate is fruity with a sour hint. Overall, a good beer. Would have personally liked more tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Bangers. bright red color, light lacy head, super raspberry nose. Taste is light delicate and jammy. Slightly to sweet but not far across the line there. Pretty solid fruit beer.

Pours a very clear ruby with a thin off white foam. Aroma of raspberry and musty grape. Flavor is red candy and fruit with a tart sweetened finish. Thanks cards04 for hooking me up with this.

Bottle poured a clear red with a small lingering ambe head. Aromas of raspberry, cooky and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of raspberry and cookie with crisp dry lightly tart lingering raspberry finish.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours ruby red with a thin offwhite head. Smell of artifical raspberries and candy, light malts. Moderate to medium sweet, raspberry jam, light malts, red candy, a bit artifical. Not impressive at all; and in another league than the other beers from Founders. Quite disappointed about this one

Red, mildly cloudy with pinkish foam. Candy, sweet raspberry in the aroma. Sweet, fruit, raspberry, with sweet muddy aftertaste. High in carbon.

Pours a ruby from a bottle. Aroma is of fresh raspberry and strawberry jam. Flavor follows suit, but with a pleasant addition of toastiness from the malt. Breakfast in a bottle. Good beer.
