A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark red color and a thick texture. There was an inch of foamy, off white, fairly long-lasting head. Average lacing.

S: Exactly what you might expect: Lots of raspberries and some malt.

T: As is usually the case with most of the best fruit beers, this beer's flavor is short on complexity and long on flavor. A big amount of raspberries and a little malt in the finish. Lively and tasty.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: Founders rarely seems to go wrong, and Rubaeus is no exception. It's extremely balanced and well made.

I am not a big fan of fruit flavored beers but i tasted this one a second time and it was much better than a year ago. Nice raspberry color flavor and aroma. It is something like raspberry soda but with less but ample carbonation and the flavor of raspberry is prominent yet not overwhelming. Great mouth feel for this type of beer. I could drink this on a nice tropical day and not get sick of it. Well maybe after 4 of them but i have a hard time drinking 4 of any of the same beer in one sitting. I like to mix it up.
