Jester King Atrial Rubicite (Batch 2)
On tap at the brewery.
A- Beautiful bright pinkish red, hazy, slightly thick looking. Like raspberry blood I guess. Hardly any head on it, absolutely no head after walking out if the taproom.
S- Wow! Dominated by huge fresh ripe raspberries. Definitely tart, some sweetness in there as well. Picking up some dry champagne notes. And that Hill County wild yeast. The best part of Texas sours, is that yeast. I can pick it out in the cool night air, and I can pick it up in Texas Wild Ales.
T- Follows the nose very well. Huge fresh raspberries (and seeds?), great tartness balanced out by a slight sweetness. There is more funk in the taste than in the aroma. Again a white grape acidity on the finish.
M- most surprising part of the beer. It starts out fairly full bodies and hearty. A bit syrup-y and thick, but finishes crisp, dry and delicate. Aggressive, prickly carbonation, great amount to bring this beer all together. Excellent mouthfeel.
O- We've been waiting so long for JK to do a fruited sour and they delivered in spectacular fashion. Price point was a bit high, but it obviously didn't stop me from buying it. Definitely in my top 3 American Wild Ales.

A: Pours a beautiful hazed, dark ruby red color. A one finger pink head forms, and in a second is gone. Not much lace.
S: Jammy like raspberries up front and center. Tannin like, with plenty of acidity. Sugary, fruity sweetness that rounds everything out.
T: Sweet, tangy, and acidic fruits that are jam like. Raspberries, obviously the focal point. Also a grape skin, almost tannin like character. The acidity builds and lingers as this warms.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Fairly crisp, and smooth. Again, tannin/fruit skin like (they are everywhere in this beer). Very easy to work through the bottle. The acidity never overpowers, and thankfully the alcohol is not very big here.
Certainly the best that Jester King has released since they switched to the all farmhouse stuff. Is it worth the price, effort to obtain, and hype? Maybe not. Though It is damn good. Well done.
