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. Aroma is Brett with some sweetness and a hint of cherry. Appearance is red with little head. Taste is sweet that takes on some sour. Some cherry present as well. Palate is sour as hell. Overall, a great sour. Will buy more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright pinkish red with a good pink head. Aroma is fresh raspberry, raspberry syrup, red currants. Medium bodied, tart and fruity on the palate with quite a dry finish. Taste is raspberry, tart red fruits, more raspberries.

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, green session. 03/05/2014. Attractive pink/ purple / red coloured pour with a light pink head. Aroma is tart sharp raspberry, really fruit fruit character. Light funk on the nose. Flavour is fresh raspberry, touch of jam, really fresh fruit. Palate is tart, slight crisp, touch of acid crispness in the finish. Very nice drinkable beer.

Huhzubendah (2807) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
The beer is ruby hued with a thin collar. Huge raspberry aroma. Funky character with a jammy raspberry quality. A simple and straightforward beer. Makes me want to revisit Lou Pepe Framboise - it’s been too long. Delicious and teeming with flavor. So much fruit. Fabulous. My favorite Jester King thus far.

Bottle courtesy of the Mad Fermentationist, thank you sir! Gorgeous bright red ruby color. Amazing aroma of bright fresh raspberries. For taste, my notes just say "wow!" Very glad to have tried this one, since I just missed it on a recent trip to the brewery. Mike said this tasted even better fresh, it must have been pretty spectacular.

Finally getting to try this. Aroma is pure berry, same as the taste. Sour as hell, but in a good way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle traded from Adam. Huge thanks for a huge want here. Batch 2, Aug 2013 poured on 8/2/14. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a small pink head that recedes not long after pouring. Beautiful aroma of fresh raspberries, tartness and lacto acidity, a bit of dry oakiness. Flavor is tart lacto punch followed by a smooth jammy raspberry. Lightly sweet and big tartness that really bites the tongue. Lingering tart raspberry left on the palate. Dry and light to medium bodied with medium prickly carbonation. Everything I expected here. Gets hammer as it warms. Yum.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle (Blend 4)... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and blood-red with a brief, pink head. The nose offers loads of raspberry preserves. Medium to full-bodied and tingly. The flavor is lightly sour and nicely fruity. Tart, crisp, fruity finish. Bottle courtesy of 50belair

Bottle (Blend 1)... Less fruit, but more funky and acidic. Unfortunately, there’s a faint fecal/baby-shit component here. I like fresh Blend 4 more than Blend 1 with a year on it. Bottle courtesy of Rosebud Butternuts!

This is a great beer. The raspberries would be over the top in any other beer, but the sour bugs and barrel conditioning tamp it down. The result is a beautifully orchestrated taste symphony. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
