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.

This beer is absolutely yummy. It is a non-carbonated reddish pink beer. Nice crisp raspberry fruity beer with a medium palate. This beer really has a great flavor without being overly sweet or overly sour. I love this beer!

Cherry red body; delicate creamy pink head. Super awesome raspberry aroma. Awesome raspberry puree flavor, super fresh. I don’t normally give scores this high, but this is so tasty and so simple and so easy to drink. Not complex, just extremely well made.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 Aroma is fantastic, overwhelming raspberry and some malt. Appearance is between a red and a purple, with a small, light purple head. Taste is great, sweet raspberry with a malty backbone, finishing light. Mouthfeel is sticky, pretty thick for a fruit. Overall, I plan to buy this one throughout the summer because it is fantastic.

Pours deep reddish pink with a light pink head. Smells of intense raspberry. Taste is raspberry, raspberry, raspberry and not much else. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Founders Rübæus finishes with mild sweetness and tartness in a magnificent interplay.

Beautiful cherry red color. Great raspberry smell with a little maltiness. Rich sweet (bit not too sweet) raspberry flavor. Surprisingly rich and full body - that is what makes this beer so good in my opinion. Amazing fruit beer.

This is by far my favorite Founders beer. It is a purple/red color with a frothy light purple head. It smells like raspberries and tastes like juice! It has a strong raspberry flavor. It’s very sweet, which I love. It is perfect for a summer day. I could drink glass after glass.

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.

This was a great refreshing beer. It has the perfect amount of raspberry taste.
