Founders "Rübæus"
Founders Brewing Company - Grand Rapids, Michigan USA
Fruit Beer (ABV 5.7%) (IBU 15)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker or Flute Glass]

Rating: 3.75/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky almost dark cranberry red with a small light pink fizzy head that was fully diminishing and produced no lacing to speak of.

The aroma was all about raspberries, with a light grain malt and a sweet yeast along with notes of candi sugar, a light vinous odor and a moderate tartness.

The taste was boldly sweet with a nice malt undertone and a huge raspberry presence from the start and was present throughout, progressing slightly with a wheaty sour taste latching on towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a fruity tart taste left behind on the taste buds to linger for a short while longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and somewhat syrupy in texture with a strong ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a very refreshingly tasty Fruit Beer, it possesses a bold fruit taste along with a mild hint of wheat only to be topped with a decent tartness making it very enjoyable and refreshingly easy to drink...
