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.

Fin rødlig gyllen farge. Tykt lag skum. Duft av friske bringebær. Frisk nydelig smak av bringerbær som sitter. Denne er nydelig for dessert.

omhper (19322) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2014
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy copper colour, small head. Raspberries, pecan and caramel up front. Sweet with medium body and dense mouthfeel. Balsamic raspberries, strawberries and caramel, some syrup. Low bitterness. Concentrated and harmonious. Well made fruit beer.

bytemesis (3094) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle, several times, just forgot to rate it. Pours crystal clear hot pink with a medium fizzy light pink head that dissipates quickly, nevertheless leaving good lacing in its wake. Aroma is raspberry jam. Flavor is medium sweet, a bit of bitterness, jammy, with bitter notes more like leaves and seeds than hops. Light body, soft carbonation. A bit soda-like, but still an enjoyable brew.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
355ml bottle at 60’s Palaver. Tiny bubbly surface to a dark red coloured body. Sweet berries on the nose, semi-dry. Flavours of rather sweet raspberries, bready malts beneath. A fruit beer that simply gets a tad too sweet. Alright in smaller amounts (Joensuu 16.08.2014).

Flaska från Systembolaget. Rödbrun vätska med ljust skum. Hallon hallon hallon på ett riktigt bra sätt. Synd att jag inte köpte fler...

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle, 5.7%. Sour raspberry aroma, hint of liquorice or aniseed. Cloudy dirty red colour. OK stable white or pink head. The flavour is sweet with a distinct raspberry note and a little salt in the finish. Very fruity and bordering on an alcopop, but tastes all right.

Bamsen78 (3107) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy strawberry red with small light pinkish head. Clera aroma of razzie jam, yeast and malt. Sweet flavour of malt, sweetener, honey and raspberry jam. Lingering, sour-sweetish afteraste. Okay. Actually a decent beer for the style.

BiffNilsson (209) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2014
Djupröd vätska med liten vit krona. Tydlig hallondoft ovanpå klassisk aledoft. Söt syrlig med intensiv hallonsmak. Oerhört lättdrucken. Ett utmärkt alternativ till mousserande rosévin. God och uppfriskande.
