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.

Bottle, pretty sure it’s batch 4. Pours deep magenta with pink head. Aroma is insane seedy raspberry jam, blackberry, Tempranillo, lemon peel, raspberry leaves, white wine, and an almost savory umami note. Taste is soft strawberry and raspberry with mellow Merlot notes and cherry, red grape, lemon peel, green raspberry leaves, grape leaves, oak barrel. Soft and smooth mouthfeel. Delicious.

Alengrin (3030) - BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 At ACBF, classic Jester King product, curious about this. Bright, glowing fuchsia red colour, thin pinkish head. Strong fruitiness as expected, tons of red raspberries with a pleasant perfume, but not sweet; stonefruit, lemon juice, almost agressive fruity acidity in the onset mellowing down to a more yoghurt-like, lactic acidity, smooth but stubbornly drying the finish, with a vinous mouthfeel, rather low carbonation, as fit for this type of beer. This is fruitiness in an almost extreme way, interesting and a must taste for those into sour ales.

Sampled @ ACBF 2015. Pours a brilliant rubine with a light red head. The smell is huge raspberry, raspberry seeds, sweet/sour notes. The taste is Bright, tart raspberries, seeds, tart, sweet/sour ending quite sour. Light+ body with effervescent carbonation. If you love raspberries this beer is heaven.
