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.

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.

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

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
