COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back in February of this year, we added several hundred pounds of raspberries to oak barrels containing mature sour beer. We then allowed the beer to re-ferment to dryness. The result is Atrial Rubicite, our first barrel aged sour beer to incorporate fruit. Atrial Rubicite is made from well water, barley, wheat, hops, farmhouse yeast, native yeast from the Texas Hill Country, souring bacteria, and raspberries. It’s 5.8% alcohol by volume, has a finishing gravity of 1.005 and is 3.36 pH. It is unfiltered, unpasteurized and 100% bottle conditioned. Atrial Rubicite is our first beer to be packaged exclusively in 500 ml bottles.

Rating 6100! 10/29/14. 500mL bottle with big thanks to djd07! Very deep red pour, almost purple, with a neat fizzy pink head that sadly sizzles away fast with no lacing. Otherwise pretty neato looking. I’ve been sipping this for awhile now and contemplating it as it starts to warm slightly, and discussing with Mrs. Owl. Overall, I dig it. Sour, raspberry, it delivers. Now, let’s dig deeper. Sourness hits my nose first, definitely sour, lactic, citric, raspberry, etc. Digging deeper, there’s a sort of weird meatiness, and surprisingly, given the low-ish ABV, a touch of alcohol popping through. Drinking and sipping for a bit now, the sourness and the raspberry pops and lingers. Pretty tasty, but perhaps a little one dimensionally sour. Reminds me a bit of a chalky Smartie. Tannic, bitter, seedy aspect, jammy. That meaty aspect is hitting me again. Lingers dry and tart with a borderline fecal funkiness. Interesting, tasty.
