Beautiful deep purplish red color. Looks good!

Big raspberry aroma - including seeds - along with black tea and touches of vinegar and old wood. Deep, complex, and captivating.

Tastes absolutely delicious. Great balance between fresh juicy fruit, spicy and ever so slightly bitter seed, leaf, and barrel flavors, and a good dose of sourness. Quite complex and full-flavored, and at the same time light, refreshing and highly drinkable. Long finish, spicy berry seeds and old barrel.

Incredible beer. Thanks Daniel!

Dragged 6 non-beer drinkers to Jester King to try their great beers. Atrial Rubicite was the highlight of the day.

A-The color is a perfect brilliant red with a thin layer of foam on top. Just a beautiful color!

S- Smells exactly as you would expect. Sour raspberries.

T- If you like sour beers and you like raspberries you'll love the taste of this beer. Definitely the best fruit sour I've had to date because the raspberries really have a strong fruit flavor that balances the sourness.

M- Slightly acidic and refreshing. The carbonation is just right. Not overly carbonated to detract from the flavor.

O- Liked this beer so much that I picked up a bottle to bring back to Florida and even bought an Atrial Rubicite T-Shirt.

Bottle traded from Adam. Huge thanks for a huge want here. Batch 2, Aug 2013 poured on 8/2/14. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a small pink head that recedes not long after pouring. Beautiful aroma of fresh raspberries, tartness and lacto acidity, a bit of dry oakiness. Flavor is tart lacto punch followed by a smooth jammy raspberry. Lightly sweet and big tartness that really bites the tongue. Lingering tart raspberry left on the palate. Dry and light to medium bodied with medium prickly carbonation. Everything I expected gets jammer as it warms up and makes things even better. Yum.

If you're finding this too sour and not jammy enough, makes sure to pour in the dregs and let it warm above fridge temp. Things really improve at that point.
