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.

The son of blushing monk. I know it’s only a 6% beer, but I’m really curious how this will change in 6 months, 1 and 2 years. Re-rate coming.

Poured from 12oz bottle. The intricacy of the raspberries is quite frankly unassuming. No holds barred is more the motto here with no subtleties about it. A little too convalescent for my tastes. --you've been Dubbed.

At last - a proper beer flavoured with appropriately tasting fruit - super easy to drink because the flavour is right, balanced and natural - what a brilliant quaffer if you like this sort of thing. I do for a change although I’m not giving up high octane US style pale ales.

Pinball (11002) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2015
ckear dark brown red, small pink head.clean and strong aroma of fresh raspberries with a little malty base. also some raspberry jam.flavor is raspberries and beer. the beer bitterness clashes a little with the delicate fruit flavor, but ingredients are very good neverheless. also reminds me of raspberry chocolate.

triximonk (40) - SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2015
Pours a clear light red with no head. Nose is chemical raspberry lemonade (hallonsaft) and taste is yeasty and sweet. Overwhelming in a not very good way.

SlovakSniper (3437) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Plus douce qu’acidulée. Petite bière rose ou rouge susceptible de plaire à madame ma femme qui aime les douces. Plutôt facile à boire en hiver et sans aucun doute de mise pour les journées chaudes et ensoleillées. Une belle rincée pour les papilles entre une grosse noire des États-Unis et une grosse brune foncée du Danemark.

Brewhemia (56) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2015
Clear light but very red color. Fresh and nice aroma of raspberry. The taste is very rich on raspberry and has cute some sweetness, but not too much. Could maybe benifit from some sourness to balance out the sweetness a bit. It has a little but not much.
