Thanks, Jason! 22oz bottle into Darkness tulip.

A - Pours a pinkish/reddish color, light fizzy white head, some bubbles here and there, and a barely-noticable thin ring.

S - Smells like Jolly Ranchers, raspberries, sweet sugars. There's a nice light level of tartness in there as well, which is enjoyable.

T - Tastes like raspberry Jolly Ranchers with a nice tart middle and finish with some fruity sweetness. Very enjoyable and not overly sweet or sour, just about right to really drink though easily.

M - Light body, light carbonation, semi-dry finish.

O - An enjoyable wild from Jackie O's that's super-easy to drink. The raspberry and fruity tart notes are excellent and make this beer refreshing and almost berliner-like. Recommend.

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.

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.

Bottle cracked with IrishColonial and billab914.

Served in a snifter.

A. Pours an orange golden color with a faint pinkish hue. A little glow to this one. Minimal head and lacing. Good.

S. Wow. Uber tart nose of raspberry, vinegar, some grape, maybe some apple. Very strong and cutting. Loads of fruit and some funk.

T. Lots of wood, tart raspberry, a touch of astringency and alcohol esters. Tartness lingers in the finish with a good amount of pucker. I get some grassiness here too which is slightly offputting. Good, not great.

M. Moderately carbonated and well balanced. Quite a bit of pucker on this, but good for the style. Barrel aging is apparent. There is an offness to the flavor I cannot quite describe, the wood might be just a little too much.

O. A solid sour from Jackie O's. Would have liked more raspberry though. Sourness and woodiness reign supreme on this one.

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.

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

22oz bottle poured into snifter.

A: Pours a cloudy dark tea color with a thin off-white head that left a ton of soapy lacing down the glass.
S: Big scents of raspberries with a bit of funk and oak. Inviting.
T: Raspberries all the way with funky, earthy, dry, sweaty, sweet and preservative flavors as well. The finish is full of an oak barrel dry woodiness, and the aftertaste is lightly tart and earthy.
M: Very dry mouthfeel, light body, soft but fizzy carbonation.
O: Despite this being a raspberry forward beer I thought the fruit could have been stronger and more prominent. Still, this was a very solid wild and I would gladly drink it again.

Big thanks to jedwards for sharing. Pours a lovely dull raspberry hue with no head, just a thin, bubbly band around the edges. Nose expresses muted raspberries, cork, salty and tart fruit. The raspberry present in the nose all but disappears in the flavor profile with the most prominent flavors being salty, citrusy and vinegary. Mouthfeel is fairly light in body, acidic and astringent; not puckeringly so, but close. There's also some residual saltiness that lingers on the palate and along the cheeks. Overall, this is an exceptional sour. It's definitely lost quite a bit of fruit, which makes me wonder how this beer will develop with age. Right now it's not overly sour; however, I definitely seeing this one taking on a life of its own with some time on it (and not necessarily in a good way).

Irresponsible Tick #9

"It's like having your tongue pierced with a raspberry flavored needle."
-MbpBugeye

Rusty copper color, no head/lace. Smells funky. Tangy raspberry and vinous tones. Hints of damp oak. Tastes the same. A bit tart but not overly sour. Good showing of raspberries but not very sweet. Quite oaky. Medium-light body. Low carbonation. Smooth and not sharp. Tame feel. Funky finish. Serviceable wild, yeah?
