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.

White cap and collar one a gorgeous deep ruby body. Some small spots of lacing cling to the sides of the tulip.
Raspberry, plain and simple. Smell your fingers after crushing fresh raspberries in them, like that.
Finding a hard time describing Atrial because raspberry is the only word that comes to mind. Smell your fingers after crushing fresh raspberries in them. Sourness is about a 6 on the Duff27 sour scale.
Perfect amount of carbonation, medium-low. Mouthfeel is medium.
Intricate and simple raspberry at the same time. About as good as it gets for fruit wilds...we live in good beer times. Thanks for this kojevergas, a beer I never thought I'd get to try!
