Thanks to barkingelectron for sharing this one.

Pours deep yellow/light orange with some foamy white head that dissipates to a ring. Lacing is present but low.

Tart peaches stand out in the aroma. A little bit of bretty funk along with some oak are present as well.

Similar flavor to the nose. Big intense up front peachy sourness gives way to more mellow flavors in the back end. The brett kicks in after the initial peach onslaught and it finishes musty and dry.

Medium bodied. Nice and creamy with good prickly carbonation.

Yet another fantastic sour by Jackie O's. We had this back to back with Fantasia and a few preferred this. While I don't think it was quite as good, it more than held its own.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet. This is bottle 73/204.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear golden amber color with just under a finger of creamy off white head. The head leaves a small layer on top of the pour.

Smell: This is a fruity sour vinegar bomb. Lots of sour vinegar and some light, hay like funk. There is a nice peach undertone here as well.

Taste: This is a really nice light sour ale. I'm getting some vinegar and lemon juice sourness right off the bat. The fruit shows up more near the end of each sip. There is a light sweetness and a mild funk. The finish is quite fruity and somewhat acidic.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with just a touch of syrup to it. The carbonation is fluffy with a very dry finish.

Overall: This is a very sour blonde ale, but it's extremely drinkable. I thought the peach note was really nice. I'd have more in the future if they ever make this beer again.

4.08/5  rDev -5.1%

Poured a hazy, orange color with a small quickly dissipating white head.

The aromas begin with fresh peach nectar coupled with a huge amount of oak as well. A bit earthy and funky sourness emerges as it warms.

The tastes follow the nose but are a step down in intensity. Flavors of peaches, lessers lemon and maybe grapefruit. Solid tart lactic sour flavors throughout.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is dry and tart and oaky.

Overall this was a really nice beer but I feel I opened my bottle too soon. This could use another year to let the sourness and flavors develop into something special.

Poured into a tulip. Bottle #109 of 204 from 2011.

3.5 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. One and a half ifngers of frothy white head. Retention is average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Pleasant mix of funk and sour. Foremost, tart peaches stand out. A mix of earthy and musty funk follows - dryrotted sweat socks, wet rotting wood, oak, supple tannins. Tangy lactic acid in moderate amounts.

4.0 T: Tastes like the nose, but with a little more force. Tart and sweet peach with some extra berry notes from the lactic acid. Oak, light vanilla, and plenty of funk including barn woodines, sweat socks, unripened berry, and damp musty basement. Very nice.

4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good spritzy carbonation. Good creaminess as well.

4.5 D: I really enjoyed this, it's one of JO's better sours. Any category could have been a notch higher, so I'll bump the overall.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing, 2011 vintage bottle # 130/204

Decent fizzy bubbly 1/2 finger head fades semi quickly, light lacing, mostly clear blond apple juice colored.

Nose floats out everywhere after the pour, tons of tart sour fruit, tangy sour funky peach, plenty of peaches not necessarily fresh but peach nonetheless, light blonde malt, hint sweetness, nice tart lactic acid and lacto sour funk, light vanilla oak barrel, smooth and round. Peach also brings other light stone fruit like nectarine.

Taste comes in waves. First hits with a nice sour fruit, tart peaches and stone fruit, again not fresh but soft fermented aged fruit. Then an oak layer hits, vanilla, dusty oak, etc. Next tart sour lambic like funk, lacto sourness, little creamy, and lactic acid. Next malts kick in with some light blonde ale sweetness and light toasty bready malt with light yeast. Then more fruit, again tart sour like peach and flemmy. Finish is flemmy, tart sour peach fruit, little bready funk, light barrel, light acetic acid and creamy lacto.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, flemmy and sour, nice carb.

Overall quite nice, very good beer, nice aged peaches not fresh but nice, nice sour tart fruit etc.

Slightly murky blonde color with the hues of barrel juice/char darkening the beer at the center of the glass. No head, appears still.

The aroma foretells of a sour immediately. Orange pith, brett, and lactic sourness.

Very sour, near puckering at times. Nice acidity and orange type flavors.

Low carbonnation, drinks clean and smooth.

Overall one of the better Jackie O's sours this year.

3.28/5  rDev -23.7%

Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a cloudy pale golden without much head.
S: Light funk, sweet fruits, plums, and vibrant peaches. Dry smelling with a great peach smell.
T: Tart and acidic flavors of fruity sour-patch kids. The peach is un-ripe in flavor. Very sour aftertaste.
M: Acidic mouthfeel, very tart and dry. Good carbonation but this beer is rough around the edges.
O: A bit unpolished. Great smell but the rest of the beer was one-dimensional and underwhelming.
