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.

Batch # 1

I don't know what to say about the smell of this beer, but definitively funky.

Pours a nice reddish beer, very dark. Almost no carbonation form, but this is a carbonated beer. Aroma is of funky yeasts, berries. Taste is really good, very sour but not overly sour. Very drinkable. Tastes like berries. The body is light.

Blend 2. August 2013

500 ml bottle poured into a wine glass

Appearance: Pour a dark ruby red color with less than a finger of a light pink head that settles to a thin ring. Body is relatively clear when held up to light with light amounts of fine suspended sediment.

Smell: Huge fresh raspberry aroma, barnyard funk, oak, acidic sourness. The raspberry aroma is not just raspberry juice or jam, but rather an entire raspberry (leaves, seeds and all). Aroma strength is strong.

Taste: Whole fresh raspberries, oak, lactic character that was lacking in the aroma (almost yogurt like), light medium funkiness and a very faint underlying malt character. There's an acidic sourness to it as well, but I'd characterize it more as just hugely, hugely tart.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with low medium carbonation. Finishes super tart and dry.

Overall: Extremely impressed with this beer. One of the best American fruited sours out there. Absolutely worth seeking out.
