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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle from Sam’s. Pours bright red, though with a brownish tint to it. Small light pink head. Nose is big raspberry but also some peach, strawberry, and honey. A bit one-dimensional. Slight tartness. Good raspberry flavor but a bit generic and simple.

ClubGonzo (4119) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy pink-hued amber body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is raspberries, citric peel, mild floral notes and hints of herbs and grass in the back. Taste is strong raspberry tones, citrus, sweet candi notes and hints of bread and mild grass in the back. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad, but the raspberries completely overshadows anything else and makes it a bit one-dimensional after all. Pretty nice if you like fermented fruit juice though. :-)

0,15l on tap @ OlutExpo 2014. Pours hazy ruby red with a low head. Aroma is sweet raspberries. Flavor is sweet raspberries with some malts. Juicy. Decent.

gunnar (5468) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours dark reddish, hazy with a small pinkish head. Lovely fresh raspberry aroma. Taste is moderate sweet, raspberries all the way, lovely fruit beer.

wiosna (193) - - OCT 24, 2014
0,2 hana@ Olut Expo. Häilyvä vaahto, kauniin punertavan ruskea, kirkas. Tuoksussa selvästi makeaa vadelmaa, tuoksuu lambickilta johtuen happamuudesta. Maussa makeaa vadelmaa, hiukan happamuutta eikä juurikaan muuta. Vadelmalimua.

AshtonMcCobb (2697) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - cherry to damson. A thin head which is pink but then it’s gone. Nose - raspberry but not much else really. Taste - the same again. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry yet somehow fructose sweet finish. Overall - when something other than malt or hops or yeast is dominant then the beer is rendered one dimensional. I’m talking to you coffee stout for example.

fyb (4) - SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2014 does not count
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours hazy red with a thin, light-pink head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet, fruity, red berries (raspberries!), candy-ish. Taste is really sweet, berries, like raspberry soda with some added alcohol that especially shows in the aftertaste. Medium body, medium carbonation. Way too sweet and really not my cup of tea!

TheCaptMatey (59) - Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Poured a ruby colour with a white/pink head. Slight aroma of raspberries and malt. The raspberries are quite prominent in the flavor with a dry wheat malt finish. A very sweet FMB. Better than its commercial counterparts.

jesperhammer (2936) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2014
17-OCT-2014, bottle @home, from Superbest. Red with a pink head that dies quickly. Aroma is raspberries. Sweet raspberries. Taste the same. Lemonade-like and fresh. Sweet but finish is tart. Medium body and carbonation. Quite creamy. Nice little one.
