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.

Benzai (7301) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2014
Sampled @ CBC 2014. Candy-like red color, small pink head. Smell and taste sweetness, candy, very sweet red fruits, slightly sour hints, red berries. Quite pleasantly fruity. Medium body and carbonation. Quite like it.

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Another fantastic and spectacular beer from Jester King. Dominated by red sweet fruits and a perfectly balanced acid-level.

Vignale (1994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2014
Smakprov på CBC 2014. Ett fantastiskt hallonöl fullt iklass med de bästa belgarna. Stor hallon- och friskt syrlig funkig doft. Smaken av hallon är nästan lika stor som doften trots att den är riktigt syrlig, torr och funkig. Otroligt gott, bra balans. Wow!

hombrepalo (1818) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Sampled at DLD 14, many thanks to some guy who shared this! pours hazy reddish with creamy lacing. Smell and taste is of fresh raspberries bringing lightly citric notes, lambic funk bringing some lactic/acetic, grass, wood, hint of dust and vanilla - white cake-ish, slightly perfumey, but never disturbing. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, tart, dry and fresh fruity finish. One of the better sours I’ve had in my life.

Defreni (2464) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2014
Fad på CBC: Flot lyserød klar øl med et lyserødt skumhoved. Dejlig duft af hindbær, men lidt for ensomt og ufokuseret i forhold til andre hindbær øl jeg har smagt. Når det er sagt var det bestemt en fin øl som man sagtens kunne drikke en flaske af.

TXBadger (1250) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Batch 4 just had today: Pours a nice dark ruby red color with pink/ magenta head. Raspberries, tartness, funk, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Lots of raspberries here versus the other one I had. Finishes tart and dry. Very nice with a lot of fruit up front. Previous: Had this at a share. Pours a light hazy ruby color. Wheat, fruit, brett, and some funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. More sour than anything, the raspberries really don’t come through as well as I would have liked. I don’t get the hype over this one.

Draft at CBC 2014. Pours hazy red with a big bubbly pink head. Massive raspberries on the nose, tart with barnyard funk, cobwebs and dank cellar. Flavor is light sweet and over moderate acidic. Citric aspects coming out in the palate. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. An excellent American sour.
