On tap at Jester King's Atrial Rubicite release (Batch 2). Had a taste from a 'super-secret' bottle before the release (Batch 1), too. As I understand it, all bottles from the first release are Batch 1 as well.

Atrial Rubicite, for lack of a better word, is stunning. The brilliant, bright ruby red body is hazy in the light with a fleeting pink head. Aroma is bursting with fresh raspberry juice & jam, funky yeast, and acidity. Quite complex, akin to some of the more prominent Belgian sours (very reminiscent of Drie Fonteinen's Hommage...just less 'jammy').

The flavor is tart and dry, with vinous raspberry juices puckering the sides of the tongue. A hint of leather and wood from the barrels blends perfectly with the delicate raspberry note. Acidity is light, but enough to balance the funky yeast. Good carbonation, refreshingly tart and slick on the tongue with a medium body. Atrial Rubicite is very complex, and very well crafted. Probably Jester King's, nay, the entire state of Texas's finest beer to date.

If you like raspberries, and sour ales, look no further. The Atrial Rubicite is the most flavorful and delightfully sour farmhouse ale I've ever had, with a dominant raspberry profile. A truly unique creation that is a pleasure with every sip, with food or without.
