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.

Pours a beautiful opaque maroon color, with a very thin head that fades into a white film on the top of the beer. Aroma is fresh, mashed raspberries, and a light malty fragrance. Taste is exactly what you’d expect from the aroma. Strong raspberry flavors, red grape, and plum. Mouth feel is light with nice carbonation. Very refreshing and enjoyable fruit ale.

12oz can - pours a clear pink with great carbonation and a fizzy white head. Big fresh raspberry aroma. Sweet raspberry flavor tastes a little syrupy. It finishes with a little maltiness. Not my favorite style but it pretty good for what they’re going for.

Bottle poured into nosing glass. Pours clear reddish with reddish head. Nose of artificial raspberry. Taste is sweetish raspberry and you await the sour kick but it won’t come... Meh

Tognetta (777) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 25, 2016
Avermelhada de leve/média turbidez, espuma rosada de ótima formação e boa persistência. Framboesa nítida, perfumada, difícil sentir qualquer outro aspecto como malte e lúpulo, agradável mas não remete a cerveja "tradicional", realmente é preciso avaliar pensando no estilo. Paladar exclusivamente de dulçor. Corpo leve e média carbonatação. Final de média persistência focado na framboesa e frutas vermelhas, sem variações. Para o estilo é muito prazerosa e bem feita, mas não me agrada muito.

16/20 huge raspberry taste against a malt beer background. Works really well. Probably a bit sweet to drink loads of but certainly refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Livendadream (200) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Can pours a clear light red/pink color. Little pink head disappears quickly leaving no lace on glass. Aromas of ripe berries,taffy and fresh jam. Tastes of ripe raspberry and sweet malt. Light body, a tad under carbonated,thick coating mouthfeel and a dry, tart, tingling finish. At first I really did not like this beer. But after a few, it really grew on me. The berry taste is real and the tartness balances out the sweetness perfectly. It is a very refreshing beer. Definitely one of the better fruit beers out there!

Tap in Harlem - Red color, creamy rosé head - tart raspberries and some sugar. Body medium malty. Dry finish. A great during-the-day beer!

Might be my least favorite Founders offering, which hurts my soul to admit. Massive raspberry tartness on the front, but holy hell does this thing grow sweeter than sweet, almost to wine cooler levels of saccharine overbearingness. No nuance or balance; nothing but raspberry and sugar. Grows almost undrinkable as it warms.

12 oz bottle. Pours reddish pink with a thin quickly vanishing head. Low carbonation. Aroma is intensely sweet of red fruit and sugar. Sweet to taste with a tart, dry finish, very light mouthfeel overall.
