It's like a sweet, slightly tangy raspberry juice, but carbonated and alcoholic. It's a pinkish / purplish color, and very refreshing on a hotter day. I can foresee me drinking many of these during the summer months. One of my new favorite summertime beers!

One of my favorite beers of all time! light red color and VERY fruity, fairly heavy but full of flavor.

I absolutely love this beer. It is delicious and a really easy beer to drink. I also heard that if you mix it with Bells Oarsman ale it is incredible, so I did and it's true. Rubaeus is a beautiful red color when poured and retains a nice foamy head (if poured correctly). It gives a wonderful mouth feel during the first sip, similar to carbonation from pop. It is also a very sweet beer, which I enjoy for nights around a bonfire.

A great choice from Founders and make sure to try it while it is out on the shelves!

Best Raspberry beer I've ever had. It was also available in Nitro at the brewery. Goes great with Founders oatmeal stout!

You can definitely taste the fruit, but it comes off as a great all day everyday beer. I can't say enough good things about this beer, but I'm drinking now and don't have the time!!

This beer is a very red in color. It smells highly fruity, with raspberry scents coming through strong. The taste is sweet and fruity, but balanced. It has a good, medium but light body. I very much enjoy this beer. Someone who doesn't like sweet beers may want to stay away. Easy to drink.
