BOYCOTT MALTERNATIVES!

Very light, crisp and refreshing. I've been looking for my "summer beer" and haven't found it yet. I'm a big fan of Porters and Stouts, which I've been enjoying regularly since last fall. The heat of summer has me wanting to get away from that heaviness for a while, but nothing has come up as the "The One", yet. (Firestone Walker Wookey Jack is "The One" in winter, followed closely by Henniker Working Man's Porter or Full Sail Imperial Stout)

I wouldn't make Rubaeus my everyday go-to, but it's definitely a go-to treat!

Bottle was dated 04/04/2014. Fresh-tasting with full bodied raspberry flavor. No buzz with just one. Left me happy to have tried it!
