In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Jester King Craft Brewery Atrial Rubicite

Aroma: “Generous raspberry aroma with notes of dark chocolate and port. Slight blackberry notes with big black currant, a bit of black pepper, and moderate sweetness. As it warms, the _Brett _horse-blanket goodness appears. Beautifully suggests balanced sourness.”

Flavor: “High tart and raspberry notes up front play with the high carbonation to create an appetizing pucker. Notes of spicy black currant and fruit-skin tannins play against the big jammy notes, with a touch of sweaty horse blanket as it warms. Linger has moderate raspberry notes with no residual sweetness. The warmer it gets, the more the flavors open up.”

Overall: “Jammy notes dominate this beer initially, then as it warms the Brett character grows stronger in the nose and flavor. Aftertaste is jammy black currant with a light acid. What a punch of raspberry tartness and carbonation with no sweetness whatsoever—just fruit, carbonation, and raspberry.”
