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.

One of the best summer beers I have ever had! Pours a nice cardinal red with a thin white head. Smells mostly of cranberries. Strong taste of cranberries witb only a little bitterness.

bigda83 (152) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a deep red with a very tiny off white head. Aroma is of fresh juicy berries and tons of raspberry. Taste is the same and kind of reminds me of raspberry tarts. I’m usually not big into the heavy fruit beers but this was truly amazing. Very solid beer.

Smell is of raspberries of course but not very strong...taste is like a more mild framboise...not quite as strong but tastier than most ales or shandys... Very good!
