Brad this great bottle with me at the brewery.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy light pink with a dime of white head.

S: Nice bright sourness and mild raspberries.

T: Sharp tartness with a hint of raspberry. The sourness tapers off smoothly in the finish.

M: Light body with good carbonation.

O: Wish I had more. Another great sour from Brad.

Bottle (2011)

Thanks to the Pittsburgh gang for sending this to the Cali gang!

(Aged for 1 year)

Clear orange and light ruby with a small head that leaves dots of lace down the glass.

A very nice aroma for the style: distinct, strong raspberry aroma, milled grains, light caramel, and lactic acid. Complete.

The flavor is also quite nice, with big notes of raspberry and mild funk combining nicely, along with flavors of grain and sweet bread. This also has moderate to high levels of lactic sourness.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

I would love to have this one again! This one was better than the sum of its parts.

Oh Jackie O's, how Ohio loves you.
Picked up at the most recent bottle release, though not my bottle. So kind of my friend, considering they bottled only 300.

Pinkish, yellowish hue with big, sticky lacing

Raspberries, cheese, funk, lemon

Lemon juice, fresh raspberries, slight funk, really nice acid

Not too big or too thin, this is great for the style.

B.C. hits another homerun. So talented. Thanks Jackie O's!

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 bottle #221/276. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy rose body. No real head. Just a couple of bubbles at the edge.

Smell - Big raspberry nose. Acidic. Musty, Hay-like. A touch lambicky (neologism?).

Taste - Quite sour, big surprise from Jackie O's. Overpowers the raspberry. It's still there, but masked. Comes out a bit in the back end but then the sourness overpowers into the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very sour and extremely dry. Low carbonation.

Overall - Jackie O's over-sours everything to the point of covering up the flavors. What I can taste here is pretty good.

Re-review:
2013 bottle #202/300

Very bright raspberry aroma and flavor. Less intense sourness. Oak. Great raspberry flavor. Better balance of acidity and flavor. Better than 2012.

Presentation: Had on tap at Jackie O's 4th Anniversary. Described as "Razz Wheat soured out." Arrives in a tulip.

Appearance: Thin coat of almost white head. This settles to a ring around the glass. The beer itself is medium brown with a slight red tinge. Cloudy yet still translucent.

Smell: Distinct sourness reminiscent of a vinaigrette dressing. Hints of a cheese-like aroma.

Taste: Medium sour bite upfront rolls into the notable sourness of raspberries. Dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation level. Slick mouthfeel that accompanies the sourness well.

Drinkability: Good stuff. The sourness pairs well with the hints of raspberry. Sour, but not to the point of not being drinkable.

cloudy orange with little head. Looks a bit flat, a bit thick. smells of sourness and sweet. fruity flavors of dark cherry and raspberries climb out of the glass. Taste is sour funk with some fruit flavors. nice, but very mild in all aspects. Getting mostly bread and spice with a sour finish. little carb on a syrup like body. Overall, not bad, wish there was more fruit going on with the funk, but a good beer in moderation.

Pours bright pink with a couple fingers of off-white pink hued head. Good retention and lacing.

Intense raspberry tartness in the aroma. Bits of oak and some bugs as well.

Heavy raspberry in the flavor as well. I don't think I've ever had a fruited beer that bursts just like this one. Big raspberry tartness accompanied by some lactic acid and oak. Tart, but not overwhelmingly sour. Finishes bone dry almost like a wine.

Medium body with good carbonation.

This is a fantastic beer and one I hope they release again soon. Another great Jackie O's sour.

Nice light pinkih/amber muddied color with a small foamy top that hust kissed the side of the glass. tart grape skins, cherries and loads of funk, some light spiciness and a decent touch of oak. lots of dark fruit, tart funkiness and a nice earthy, woodsy like smell blending together very nicely on this one. Silk like smoothness, and the finest carbonation bubbles, really well done in that regard. ;ots of sour in here right up front with frapes and light lemon like citrus taking over. Rolling through some nice notes of cherry then came over me. Decent funkiness in through the middle and the finish, but it was actually almost blended out by a cherry like sweetness
