Notes/Commercial Description:
La Vie en Rose is a dry, well attenuated, unspiced Farmhouse Ale refermented with the same raspberries used to make Jester King Atrial Rubicite. Naturally occurring wild yeasts impart a sense of place to this unfiltered, unpasteurized, 100% naturally conditioned beer.

They used the same raspberries from their Atrial Rubicite to referment this Farmhouse Ale. This beer is a lot less tart than Atrial. You still pick up the fruit aroma but it is more faint than Rubicite. Im not a huge raspberry fan so I tend to prefer this one over the atrial. Toning down the taste makes it more sessionable for me personally.

Okay so this 3rd batch is MUCH darker than the 2nd.
Stores and ages very well (cellar aged or not).
Admittedly it tastes a bit more like someone took an Atrial and mixed with some Le Petit Prince.
