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.

Nitro. At a bar in Boston. Super funky fruit beer. Loads of summer fruits. Orchid in glass. Nice funky and tarty notes. So clean. Ideal for the summer.

radio_nowhere (1209) - Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle into tulip glass, clear golden-hued pink color with thin white head. Aroma notes of raspberries and grainy malt. Taste adds berry tartness and bread. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp, sweet with berry sweet finish. Nice berry sweet-tart balance, nice fruity summer drink.

thewolf (11552) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle, bought @YNWA Beershop, Kolding. Pours clear red with a small, frothy and light fizzy pink head. Heavy raspberry aroma, soft malty. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, fruity, lots of raspberry, mild sweet malts. Fine balancing tartness. A bit of a super soda pop.

ttoadee (1002) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Dark pink/light red pour, fast white head. Nose is raspberry soda. Little sweet. Middle is tart raspberry, light grain, medium mouth-feel. Finish is a tug of war between tart and sweet; tart wins. I am not a fruit beer guy, but I will get this again.

rougeau13 (2209) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Clear bright reddish-amber with a small head of off-white bubbles. Aroma of raspberries and bread. The taste is sweet and full of raspberry and just a touch tart. Softly carbonated: almost a bit flat, light-medium bodied.

Looks very much like berry juice, fruit punch. Smells of raspberry, taste is the same just a little too syrupy for me.
