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.

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.

ThirstyBird (2382) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
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.

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Draft sample @ ACBF 2015. De couleur rubis, col fin rosé. Arôme, tout comme la version Omniscience, fait un très bon usage du fruit. Framboise parfaitement conservée dans son caractère avec un bon résiduel terreux. Palais est légèrement acidulé avec un très bon côté de framboise. A cela se prête un bon profil de grains et une belle balance des levures sauvages qui restent en retrait par rapport au caractère de la framboise.

I know some people will go mad with this rating, but so be it. I rate beers, not styles. And this is no beer for me for sure. I can imagine some people really likes this kind of bad sour lemonade, but I probably never will understand. Just looking to it, disgusting as a beer. To each his own...

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2015 Bottle at ACBF. Really sour, but sooo fruity, raspberry explosion, it’s like juice with alcohol but it’s fenomenal.

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2015
50cl bottle shared with a friend. Smell lots of raspberry and strawberry, malt sugar, candi sirup. Red berried mouth, fruity marmelade, lots of sugar lingers on the palate. My sours are expected to be more.... sour. Nonetheless a beautifully styled bottle and even over sugary, a great raspberry lambic style beer.

Bottle - Brilliant raspberry notes, fresh and sweet. Bright red pink with a bit of bubbly head. Bright raspberry notes, jammy in the best way possible.
