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.

marv3mania (182) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker. Appearance is a gorgeous dark ruby. There is a very thin red-tinted white head which dissipates quickly. The aroma is very sweet raspberries with a hint of malt. The taste is very similar to the aroma, sweet raspberries and light malt. It reminds me of sparkling juice. This is a very non-traditional beer and is much sweeter and fruitier than I’m used to. However, I absolutely love it. Founders has found a great balance between raspberries and malt.

ekstedt (5395) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle (35 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear ruby, medium pink head. Bready malt, a bit synthetic and boiled, yet pretty nice raspberry aroma with notes of viol. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonnation. Semi sweet, low acidity. Slightly artificial.

Lilja (1578) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt och hallonbär och hallonsoda. Mycket frisk och fruktig, lagom sötma och fin beska med smak av hallonkärnor. Bra balans på smakerna.

tiong (3700) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Draught @ Helsinki Night Market (Brewdog pop-up bar)

Pours reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of tart raspberries, sweet syrup, malts and artificial notes. Taste is sweetish, artificial and syrupy with hints of tart raspberries. Finish is smooth and sweetish. Quite easy going, almost soda-like.

HuskerTan (483) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle. A- Raspberries, wheat, berries, fake fruits. A- Dark pink color, cloudy liquid, minimal head. T- Raspberries, mixed berries, artificial, sweet. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, artificial fruit finish. O- I was hoping since it was Founders it would be real good. Unfortunately, even Founders can’t make a solid raspberry beer. I’ve come to decide, if it’s a fruit other than peach or apricot, it’s probably not going to be a good fruit beer. Just a letdown., unless my bottle was old or something.

esox (1034) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Bottled. Hazy ruby to brown color, thin creamy head. Strong, juicy raspberry aroma with caramel and some toffee. A touch of biscuity malts. Sweet flavor, sugary raspberry juice, some berryish acidity. Low bitterness. Slightly papery aftertaste. Medium body. Too sweet.

daje (2170) - NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
On tap at Cafe Sara, july 11th 2014. Looks really nice, ruby red body with a small pinktinted white head and a lively carbonation. Aroma of raspberry candy, yeast. Taste of tart raspberries, sweet honey, a bit too sweet for me. Finish of berries and sweet bread. Taste is good, however a little onedimensional and gets a bit boring fast
