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.

A really nice rasperry color andflavor without being to sweet/syrupy. The is a great summer or "gateway" beer. It has a bit of an orange-rine bitterness at the end. Overall a very enjoyable fruit beer.

Humlehode (56) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2014
Pours red, no head. Taste of raspberries is really overpowering. Not what I expected, actually more like a cider than a beer. Nice balance of the residual sweetness against the sourness of the raspberries. Overall a good fruit drink, but a beer? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Magenta in color... Aroma of fresh raspberry jam... Flavor is raspberry purée, oak, vanilla... Decent, but hardly a beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks, cards04 for this one. Red body, pink head. Looks nice. Sweet and natural slightly tart raspberry aroma and flavour. Really not incredibly different than like a St. Louis Kriek, though that, for some reason, gets much lower rating. This one is less sweet and more natural tasting. Nice.

Osprey87 (1393) - WALES - JUL 23, 2014
Keg at Brewdog. Hazy deep reddy brown, just a ring of white head. Aroma is raspberry jam, bakewell tart. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, smooth, rich. Taste is semisweet raspberry, bit of cherry, soft malt. Very well balanced. Nice, fresh tasting beer.

mkel07 (3108) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique December 2013. Possibly one of the best, if not the best, raspberry beers that I have had. Great red colour with pungent raspberry aroma and sweet sweet flavour.

mR_fr0g (2487) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Shepard’s bush. Nice fresh fruit aroma, raspberry and forest fruits, and some wheat. Clear bright red, purple fleeting pink head. Flavour is sickly sweet, cough sweet, fake cherry. Slightly artificial. Palate is sweet, slight syrup. Too sweet for me.

hopmelt (155) - 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 (89) - 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 (20570) - 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 (2482) - 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.
