UPDATED: JUL 23, 2016 Blend six just released. Tap at the brewery. Wonderful raspberry aroma. The funk comes mainly from acetic acid. Raspberry color with minimal head despite high carbonation. Raspberry flavor with acetic tartness, really really vinegary.. Very dry finish. Good beer but not close to the best sours.

Atrial Rubicite is delicious. Bright in color and taste, this beer is well worth the wait and lives up to the hype. Starts of with a sweetness that gives way to tartness as it warms. If you like fruit sours this is a must have. gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2016

Bottle at Himmeriget, march 25th 2016. Hazy dark red body, small pink to offwhite head. Aroma is acidic, raspberries, citrus peel, quite zesty! Taste is sour, lots of berries mildening the sourness a bit, tart and dry, pleasing lasting raspberry finish. An excellent beer! ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 1, 2016

High clarity and a deep, magenta-tinged red body with a large, well-retained, pink-tinged beige head.
Tons of brett, nicely macerated raspberry and very soft wood. Classy and with no heavy lactic/acetic character. Good malt base behind it adding light honey, biscuit and cream-of-wheat character. Black pepper and vanilla from the raspberry seed complete the picture and there’s no alcohol or flaw.
Very tart with fully fermented raspberry notes that still are quite juicy and have a lush vegetal greenness to them. Soft wood tannins and wheat provide a good backdrop and there’s tons of brett intricacy. Lime, hickory nut skin, minimal horseblanket and a strong minerality with black pepper and light lactic acid lingering. Quenching, very drinkable and dry with a very well-done fruit character.
Draft @ Mikkeller CBC 2014.
Hazy, ruby red, light pink head.
Dry, medium body, low bitterness, balanced CO2.
Sour, fruity, raspberries, lemon peel, cherries, funk, faint wood. Refreshing, balanced. Very nice! (2014-05 backlog) tiong (7194) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2016

Bottle. Deep red clear. Nice malty raspberries, raspberry seedy nose. Some farmyard, all in a pretty nice mix together. Bit tart, mouthwatering, long raspberry finish. Tasty, dry fruity, bit thin in the finish, but overall just excellent.GlasgowTAD (1768) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2016
