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.

Bottle 92/204 into Jackie O's snifter. Thanks to MarkIntihar, can't thank you enough for this.
Pours a blonde orange color with a very small bubbly head that fades to a ring which lasts through the beer and leaves some lacing. The nose is already putting off signs of sour with musty peaches and dirt. Wow this beer is pretty dang tart with young peach and earthiness, pretty acidic. It has a medium body that is dry and has an acidic burn. They did a great job with this one. Thanks Mark.

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.

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.

So I have two of these beers, cracking one with JLindros. Bottle number 130/204, 2011 vintage.
A - poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear apple juice hue with a quarter inch head that fades to leave light lacing and a thin cloud.
S - Aromas of nice soured blonde, barrel aging notes, sligh vanilla notes. Peach is on the fainter side, definitely an old/aged peach nose. Not fresh fruit, nice skin.
T - Taste is quite pleasant. Starts with some slightly bready blonde notes before tart peach skin takes over. Quite sharp but not overwhelming sourness. Light vinegar notes, floral barrel/vanilla/dusty oak barrel. Some beautiful layers. Of flavor here.
M - Mouthfeel is very sharp and tart with good carbonation super sessionable. Quite nice.
O - Overall I have yet to be disappointed by a Jackie O's beer. This is very complex and layered beer. Not sure if I would age this like the bottle says I could but super amped to have another bottle.
