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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2006
A deep red beer with a bubbly dirty beige head, that is quite fast disappearing. The flavor is very powerful - almost cloying - with strong sweet raspberry notes. The flavor is very sweet, but also with some acidity running along the side of the tongue. The acidity leaves a dryness on the tongue. The flavor has strong raspberry notes, combined with lesser notes of almond, leading to a dry slightly bitter end. The mouthfeel is very carbonated, and when You lick your lips afterward it has also left a slight note of lemon on them.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a hazy, reddish golden with a vaguely pink head. Distinct raspberry aroma. Medium body with distinct, lightly tart raspberry notes and a rather pushy alcohol. Dry tartness in the finish. 290806

Red amber color. The aroma is fruity (raspberries).Quite sweet, a bit fruity and sirupy. Like the fake Belgian Lambic, but with a stronger body.

30th December 2008. Hazy red beer. No real head. Crisp and semi dry palate. Very nicely judged raspberries which are not too sweet or acidic but are spot on. No bitterness. Tasty and refreshing.
