Batch 3 bottle split between a couple Prohibition Pig tulips.

A- Gorgeous ruby red, any darker as it would be purple. Quick diminishing fluffy head and lots of chunky raspberry sediment.

S- Best part of this beer for sure. Fresh juicy raspberries, tangy tart smell with a little bit of funk as it warms up. One of the best smelling raspberry beers I've ever had.

T- Not as sour as I may like, but still extremely good. Loads of fresh raspberries, juicy pulpy raspberries. Pretty tart with more funk as It warmed up.

M- Medium bodied, with adequate but not tons of carbonation. Juicy clean feel with a dry finish.

O- The best American raspberry sour I've had for sure. Not overly sour, but it makes up for it in every other way. Gorgeous, I want some more of Atrial.

thanks to egrace 84 for sharing this jem!

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: dark red with a slight hue of purple. A thick cap of white head that has a dark red tint to it.

Smell: Huge juicy raspberries. Moderately cheesy lacto funk. Hint of rubbery fink.

Taste: Mild sourness overall. Boatloads of freshand juicy raspberries. Mild cheesy / lacto funk and a hint of rubber. Pretty darn close to the aroma of the beer. I would say that the nose is much more intense than the flavor though.

Mouthfeel: light end of a medium bodied beer. Low carbonation levels. Slightly dry, but also watery at the same time; honestly a good balance between both those qualities.

Overall: This is a really awesome JK wild ale. It reminds me a bit of raspberry berlinner weisse beer like August Schells Fram Du Nord. This beer is definately a coolship beer and it was noticed in the feel of this beer.

500ml of Batch 3 that Mikey sent me. Thanks man! Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 3/11/2014.

App- Absolutely beautiful pink-red body with an equally stunning one-finger purple-pink head that retains quite well. Not much lacing. But the color is just beautiful.

Smell- Chilled, this is a raspberry bomb. Really appealing for sure.. this is probably the best American raspberry beer I've ever smelled. As it warms up, a little bit of rubbery barnyard funk comes out, with a lot of acid. This is very good.

Flavour- A bit disappointing but still extremely good. Lots of fresh raspberry fruitiness mixed in with some vinegar acid, perhaps 5/10 sour, just enough to make it interesting. A small dab of rubbery funk, but there isn't a ton of funk overall, which would have really scored high with me since this is supposed to be a coolshipped sour beer. But hey, I won't complain too much- this is very tasty by any measure.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, not syrupy or watery at all, just about right. Good carbonation. Nice acetic, very dry finish that smacks of fresh raspberries.

Overall- Very good American raspberry sour. This is what I wish New Glarus Raspberry Tart was. I'd venture that Cantillon Rosé de Gambrinus is very similar, and Lou Pepe Framboise kills this 10 times out of 10. But still, this is the best American attempt at a raspberry sour, certainly in the neighborhood of Framboise for a Cure.
