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.

500ml bottle shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours deep ruby with a pink head. Aroma is raspberry, yogurt funk. Flavor is big natural raspberry with some yogurt tart. Really nice!

Bottle. Aroma is just huge raspberry jam mixed with some light funk and cherry skin. Tastes like awesome raspberry purée, light red wine, apple skin and cherry skin. Just an awesome beer. Can’t believe I haven’t had this before.

pushkinwow (2495) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle from March 2013 - wish I could remember who gave it to me! Ruby pour with a rose head. A nice tart and sour nose, smooth and slightly dusty cherry pit, raspberry seed, some blackberry or elderberry jam. Mild+ carbonation and moderate body, very dry, tart finish, very yummy.

A burgundy red ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, wonderful raspberry jam, light acidity, black berry, beautiful. In mouth, a nice tart raspberry jam with light acidity, light Brett, Epsom salts, light salty notes, wonderful beer. Bottle.

RickTheRick (892) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2016
Une scintillante bière rouge voire pourpre assez opaque se verse dans le verre, et la mousse est quasi inexistante. Au nez, c’est une véritable purée de framboises avec quelques notes de chêne. L’acidité n’est pas trop agressive en bouche et véhicule très bien les saveurs authentiques de framboises. Très sèche et très désaltérante, c’est maintenant ma "bière aux fruits" favorite.

750 shared at a tasting. Deep red body. Foamy off-white head. Legit raspberry tones. Puckering US-style tart sour tones, balanced out some and complemented by the thick, sticky raspberry. Quite tasty, very enjoyable.

Bottle. Red pour, with a pink white head. Lots of raspberry, sour, tart berry, raspberry jam, oak, and mild funk. Pretty good.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours bright red with minimal pink head. Aroma is intense raspberry, pie, a bit of lactic, lots of berry. Taste is full of jammy raspberry, sour throughout, lively. Overall, this is incredible.

callmemickey (4191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Deep purple-red body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Intensely sour raspberry, with light oak, some cherries, and a nice tannic finish. Medium bodied, with light carbonation, soft sweetness, and intense acidity. Puckering but matched with sufficient flavor.

Perfect awesome great raspberry and cherry aroma with oak yeast and funk. Flavor of tart fruits and great fizzy to bring it all in one. Complex and well balanced.
