Thanks to Callmecoon for sharing this one at NoSignsOfPain's birthday bottleshare hosted by mrbubbler.

Bottle # 96/216.

Pours a slightly murky honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some fruity raspberry aromas. Taste is much the same with a very tart and acidic flavor. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice sour fruit presence.

Bottle 206/216 courtesy of TurdFurgison last weekend. Consumed from a Cantillon glass on his deck. The ultimate road trip stop. Thanks Eric.

Pours a slightly-muddied pinkish-red with a single-finger off-white head with hints of pink. Good retention and lacing. The nose carries a nice bit of raspberry and light oak. Bit of acidity, though not overwhelming. Somewhat earthy.

Flavor was quite nice, with a good dosing of raspberries and the accompanying earthy mustiness. Moderately-strong acidity and light funk. Light body with good bitterness and earthy character post-swallow. Quite tasty. Another hit from Brad.

4.9/5  rDev +14.2%

Appearance: Pours a pink lemonade color with a modest head that leaves just a smidge of lacing behind

Smell: All tartness, with raspberry and magnificent funk

Taste: Raspberry lemonade flavors, up front, and then, the tart and funky parade begins; loads of complexity in the interplay, through the finish, where the oaked aspect leaves an impression'

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: Even by the high standards of Jackie O's, this beer is quite an achievement; so different and so good

4.47/5  rDev +4.2%

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

Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a small off-white head. Definitely get some raspberry on the aroma, maybe a few other fruit notes too. There is a light acetic quality and light grassy funk. The flavor is nicely tart with just a hint of vinegar. Lemon zest and raspberry are prominent with a little bit of oak, straw, and grass. Medium body and carbonation.

Thanks to Jason for sharing this one. Bottle #200 of 216. Served in a Cigar City snifter.

A - Thin white foam quickly sizzles to a thin collar, some wisps, and minimal lace. Lightly hazy amber body.

S - Musky raspberries, slightly overripe fruit, sour candies, and plenty of potent tart and sour flavors.

T - Taste reminds me a lot of raspberry Sweet Tarts. Big lactic sourness mingling with sweet ripe raspberries. Gets very tart and puckering after only a few sips.

M - Medium body, super dry and tannic, no alcohol presence, moderate carbonation spritz, and only light acidity.

D - This was great. I think we crushed this bottle faster than anything else that was opened yesterday. Super refreshing with a great balance of sweet, tart, and sour flavors. Could perhaps use a touch more depth, but otherwise really enjoyable.

Keg @ EBF.

Hazy brownish red color, light fizzy head.

Nose light sour brown malts, tart fruit with hint of raspberries, slight creamy sweet malt, hint of sawdust like wood.

Taste light tart fruit, sour berry like raspberry jam and dry bready malt, hint of barrel, hint phenol yeast funk and lactic acid almost vinegar but not quite, and touch of vinous earthy seed or stem like, dry but sticky bitter tart finish, dry bready funk.

Mouth is lighter bodied, bit acidic and flemmy, decent carb.

Overall ok, but not great, decent fruit and tart flavors but there are better ones IMO.

Thanks to foofaa for sharing this one with us. Bottle 96 / 216.

A - Pours copper orange, with pink highlights around the edges, with a one finger tall white head leaving no lace at all down the glass.

S - Smells of raspberries, dry oak tannins, wet leather, and some mild vinegar notes. Pretty vinous initially, gets a little better as it sits.

T - Starts off with a big lactic sourness pucker slowly giving way to a mix of raspberry sweetness, light funk, wet leather, tobacco, and lots of dry oak tannins. Finish is bone dry, as it should be.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Very dry feel, leaving the pallet bone dry by the end of my sample.

O - I liked this one. It has a lot going for it and it was fairly easy to finish. The sourness got a little overpowering toward the end of my glass but thats not a huge deal for me. Good stuff none the less.

2011 bomber #84 of 216. Thanks to BA Stormking47 the biggest out of state homer of Jackie O's who hoards more bottles of their beer than the brewery itself. Thanks for breaking out a bottle of this precious elixir you shit bird.

Poured into a matching Jackie O's staff short pils glass that I swiped from the cabinet of the previously mentioned user. The brew appears copper in color with a fine white bubble formation. Some yellowish hints are noted around the edges and spots of lace stick to the glass.

The smell is fresh and seedy like one would expect from the inclusion of raspberry. Also present are hints of funk, sulfur and footy to almost cheesey grain. Not bad.

The taste is tart with the raspberry inclusion sitting center stage. More sips make these beer lean into more of an acidic realm with a backing of cheese and funk. A bit of lemony lactic tartness and wheaty grain inclusion are present into the aftertaste.

This is a medium bodied brew with a light to modest level of carbonation. Fruity that blenda from tart to snappy and sharp. I would drink this again if the opportunity presented itself. Thanks again Wiss.

Bottle shared by Chris at Thorpe's going away festivities. Thanks man.

The beer resembles pink lemonade with a thin, wispy head. The aroma brings funk and tartness with raspberries. Lemon juice and raspberries in the flavor with a bit of an acetic finish. Fairly light in body. Tasty stuff. Worth a try.

3.93/5  rDev -8.4%

22oz bottle poured into a tasting glass. It poured a very nice looking orange/ruby like color. Not much of a head or carbonation visible.

The aroma has a mix of sour and fruity with just a little bit of funk to it. It's also a little sharp at first. I get a lot of the sour raspberries and citrus showing up throughout. Pretty appealing aroma overall, very sour and fruity.

The taste shows a lot of the sour, tart raspberries to it. Some of the woody oak is more noticeable in the taste as well. It's a little acidic in the finish but not too bad. The fruity raspberries are nice in it.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall it was a good beer of the style, but not great. The tart, sour fruits were good in it but it lacked some of the complex funkiness the great ones have. Overall a pretty tasty beer though.

Although this was officially released in bottles one week ago, I feel lucky to have tried this maybe 4 times to date. Initially from the barrel (!), then twice in bottles and finally plenty of draft pours at the release. Safe to say this is one of my favorites from Brad, although his malty stouts can get pretty good too, especially with barrel treatment.

This pours a slightly murky off-pink color wiht a thin but dense foam. Framboise notes dominate, earthy and fruity, tart, more bretty than "lambicy" (excellent nonetheless).

It's got a nice acetic bite to it, lactic acid in effect. Slightly salty on the tip of my tongue, otherwise sour with a nice raspberry aftertaste.

Definitely worth getting, although the low number of bottles (and single bottle limit) makes it difficult to do so. Recommended!

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.
