Review from notes. Had at a Pittsburgh tasting a while ago.
22oz bottle poured into a Stone taster.
A - Pours a pale goldenrod, slightly rust-colored with only about a half-finger of bone-white head. The retention is still pretty good despite the lack in height, while the lacing is merely okay.
S - The first thing I noticed about the nose was that it was somewhat bitter. Besides that, this nose is popping with tropical fruits, most noticeably pineapple and mango. This doesn't have much sour to it coming out here in the nose.
T - Although the nose doesn't have many sour notes, the taste does have some pretty good tartness. It's not mouth-puckering, but you can definitely feel it in the cheeks. Again, I'm getting a lot of pineapple as well as some malt breadiness. The tartness does lend itself some mild cherry notes, as well as tart apple and pear.
M - The mouthfeel is generally full-bodied with medium to low carbonation. Somewhat dry finish that complements the lingering tartness.
D/O - Drinkability is high. This may be the best sour I've had from Jackie O's, head-to-head with the Grand Wazoo. The flavors are full and I really like the integration of pineapple in the profile and tartness to give it some additional depth.

Bottle 26 of 216
Appearance: Pours a murky apricot color without much of a head and, what there is, fades quickly, leaving a few dots and dashes
Smell: As the beer warms, the paw paw aromatics come through, bringing the subtle hints of banana, lemon, passion fruit, star apple and guava; plenty of Bretty funk, too
Taste: The malt bill of an APA underpins the explosion of fruit and sour flavors that build in the middle; before the tart flavors, the paw paw really delivers with banana, star apple and passion fruit until it gets overwhelmed by lactic sourness; funky Brett flavors develop in the aftertaste, but the finish is primarily sour
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation; puckery
Overall: We grow paw paws in North Carolina, too, so I have some idea what they are all about and this beer really shows them off well; I suspect the sourness has built over the last few years this beer has aged in my cellar; a first rate effort
