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.

StevieT (538) - - MAY 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 From a bottle. Pours a red/brown, mild head, distinct raspberry aroma, very prominent sweet flavours almost like a cider with a bitter finish, couldn?t drink a lot but worth a try. Interesting and refreshing

hopmelt (153) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours slightly hazy blood red, slight thin white head, slight lacing. Aroma fresh raspberry, candy raspberry, sweet, bready malt. Taste sweet, tart raspberry definetly dominates, slight bitter to cut some sweetness, clean malt presence, pilsner most likely. Mouthfeel medium body and carbonation, sweet finish but tartness keeps it crisp. Overall very tasty, drinks like a lambic, not very complex, but flavor is great.

Tselloufc88 (85) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Deep red in colour, cloudy too. Pretty much no head at all. Aroma is of raspberry and a slight touch of something else I can’t put my finger on. Taste is pretty sweet, but there’s a bit of malt in the end. Tasty stuff and refreshing.

joergen (20569) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Draught at Ørsted Ølbar. Hazy orange-red colored with a small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of candies and raspberries. Fruity flavor of candies and raspberries with notes of orange peel. Fruity finish.

Habanero (2473) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a small, white head head. Aroma of raspberries and herbal notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up tart and dry. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. A n excellent Fruit beer.

laiti (5516) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Draught @ Gallows Bird. Aroma has sweet raspberry juice and quite nothing else. Flavour has strong raspberry juice tones - feels almost like juice extract. Also hints of minerals. Feels a bit acidic and even more at the endo of the glass. Some gasteic acid tones do occur. Sweet but somewhat balanced; the sweetness does not become sticky.

elbernays (405) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours wine colour. All raspberry nose. Flavour is same. Like a coolade with medium carbonation. Can get the malt base as it warms. Nice on a summers day.

BitchPls (510) - FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Pomegranate red beer with a brief white head. Sweet and a little tart raspberry aroma. A little tart, sweet, lots of raspberry, yeast. Medium carbobation. I like this a lot. Very nice, refreshing and authentic berries in the sweet taste.

Dazz3 (1540) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2014
On tap at The Rover. Pours wine red with a small pink head. Smells sweet fruity rasberries. Tastes sweet rasberries, mild bitterness with a similar finish.

rlgk (10082) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Clear red/deep golden beer with a nice slightly pinkish head. Raspberry aroma, cheery seeds, caramel, sourish tart notes. Sweet raspberry flavor, lemonade-like, slightly artificial. Not at all what I was hoping for.
