COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A lot of time went into making this beer. This isn’t to suggest that very long periods of maturation in oak automatically lead to good beer. Far from it. In fact, some of our favorite beers we’ve made have achieved some really nice characteristics in just a few months. However, we’re really pleased with the way Sherry Barrel Atrial Rubicite turned out and are happy it received all the time it did. The base beer for Sherry Barrel Atrial Rubicite was brewed in 2013. After maturing in oak barrels for about a year, it was blended during the spring of 2014 and refermented with raspberries. It was then racked to a single 500 liter Spanish sherry barrel for further aging and maturation. In July of 2015, fifteen months later, we racked the beer out of the sherry barrel and bottled it. All together, Sherry Barrel Atrial Rubicite took a little over two years to make. Again, this isn’t to suggest that long periods of fermentation and maturation necessarily equate to enjoyable beer, but in this case, we think it does. Sherry Barrel Atrial Rubicite was brewed with Hill Country well water, barley, wheat, oats, and hops. It was fermented with our mixed culture of microorganisms consisting of brewers yeast and native yeast and bacteria harvested from the air and wildflowers around our brewery, and refermented with raspberries grown in Washington. Sherry Barrel Atrial Rubicite was pakagd in July of 2015 and is unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned. At the time of bottling, it was 7.0% alcohol by volume, 1.003 specific gravity (0.75 degrees Plato), 7 IBU, and 3.3 pH. Batch 1 - 330 mL Bottles - Bottle Labeled July 2015

gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Dark purplish red color, typical atrial deep raspberry nose. This beer drinks with a richer profile with the sherry barrel not necessarily adding a huge flavor to this like with gin nocturn but a really complex profile where this beer falls flatter on the pallet and feels much more substantial in the mouth than normal atrial the additional barrel aging imparts a bigger oak profile where normal atrial you get an almost one note raspberry flavor. Medium-thick mouthfeel that gives it a perception of being lower carb.

TURDFERGUSON (4064) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle shared by Dj at the fart lobby share in the hyatt at rbwg 2016. Big thanks DJ for sharing this tiny tiny bottle (which Im sure was not easy to get) with like 10 different ratebeerians and making sure everyone got a couple nice Danish sips. This is what ratebeer is all about and DJ embodies it. The beer was pretty awesome--DJ also poured a regular Atrial so we could have them side by side. The sherry barrel def adds a little more character with sherry noted on the nose and flavor, but I can’t get enough of the regular atrial and its almost perfect tart raspberry flavor. This was top notch though. My second favorite JK beer after the regular Atrial.

phaleslu (13090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2016
500 ml bottle shared by djd07 - thanks again, DJ! Pours a hazy ruby color, darker and murkier than the regular one, with less of a head, too. Sweet and oaky Sherry barrel atop gorgeous waves of raspberries. Black cherries, lemon, funk, florals, wood. Medium-bodied, with a tart mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. But more sweetness than the base beer, too. While I still prefer the base beer, this is absolutely awesome stuff. It’d be hard to mess up a barrel treatment of this - and yet, they do it really well.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 Bottle at RBWG 2016. Lightly funky and musty nose, moderately woody nose. Red color with off white pink head. Really fucken tart lemon flavor followed by a gravely fruit presence in the throat. Good but I thought their other fruited sours were more well balanced.
