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.

500 ml. bottle split by 3 @ “Exclusive S&G Tasting: Special guest 77ships”. Thanks to Mathieu87 & PriorL. Very nice, long time want. Pours extremely dark pink, small dark pink head; Nose is thick raspberry yoghurt, lots of pits, huge fruit; Taste is thick raspberry pure with lots of pits, thick, nicely tart, light yoghurt sour, faint brett, funk, med. sour, lots of thick fruit,… Thick raspberry juice body. Very nice. More straightforward, almost traditional than other Jester King beers.

Batch 3 bottle pours clear ruby red with low head. Aroma is huge juicy raspberries and light tart. Taste is crisp and clean tart berries with a Dry finish. Could almost be a berry berliner

Damn! This is so complex I'm not sure where to start. The aroma is sour, woody, funky. The flavor is fruity, dry, and tart. Really good.

Vestergaard (394) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to PreisMJ! Pours deep, hazy red with a small, short lasting, pink head. Aroma has EXTREME amounts of raspberries. Unripe, ripe, tart, and funky raspberries. Really fresh, but with an almost jam-like sweetness to it. Taste has first of all lots of the ripe berries, but with a lovely, crisp tartness. Vinegar, a little rosé wine in the taste, dry bitter wood, leaves you with a perfectly cleansed, sour after taste.. Very big taste compared to many other sours. Pretty full body for style and ABV, but with a crisp carbonation and a fresh sourness. Good stuff!

Klimaet (216) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle shared with vestergaard and rasmusott. Traded with preismj. Deep hazy ruby red with a pink thin head that fizzes away right after pouring. Settles with no head at all. This beer looks amazing. Aromas of tart raspberry, sweet notes of raspberry jam, some yeasty, funky notes. Some floral wine-like notes. Taste is medium tart up front, some sweet matured raspberries followed by some funky stale/hay-like notes in the finish. Can’t tell if it’s the oak that made this beer so damn good, but damn.. damn son, damn.

RasmusOtt (1199) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
From trade with Preismj. Pours deep red with no freaking head. Aroma of raspberries - ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? RASPBERRIES IN A BEER????? Yes. Freaking gewd. I also get a lot of funky notes behind this fruit forward freshness. Some vitamins, weak oaky notes and some sweet red wine. Very complex - what is not to like? Taste is quite tart with nice fruit forward raspberries. Both ripe and unripe notes coming along here. Also some funky notes behind this along with some oak, red currants and I almost get rosé wine out of the taste as well. Very nice and highly sniffable beer!

dicers (1) - - SEP 9, 2014 does not count
Aroma: Fresh it smells like raspberry jam freshly made Appearance: Thin Pink head with a nice deep rose color throughout. Taste: Delicious and jammy when fresh. You taste the raspberries from beginning to end with funk from the middle to end. When this is aged more than 8 months the raspberry fades to the background and the funk comes out to play. Rivals LP Framboise when aged Mouthfeel. Light/Medium with nice carbonation Overall: This is probably my favorite fruited American Wild. This beer changes so much over time and only becomes more complex
