Bottle courtesy of Nate. Thank you very much for the opportunity bud! Bottle number 152 of 204 from 2011.

Pours a nice golden yellow with swirls of orange highlights. Thin white head runs scared to a thin white collar.

Smells of acetic stone fruits and a dash of funk. By the nose I'm hoping this is unabashed sour.

Taste really amps up from the sniffer. Nice and sour: mainly orange and peach. Lactic notes mesh well with the high acidity. It's not the most complex beer, but the big peach notes and pucker make it quite enjoyable. There's a tart fruit juiciness just before the drying tannic oak finish that ties the beer together nicely.

Overall, this was quite enjoyable and I crushed the bomber as a tribute to our nation's independence. Suck it, England.

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 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.

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.

Thanks, Jason! Bottle into tulip.

A - Pours a hazy/mirky yellow/orange color, white head, bubbles here and there and a thin collar.

S - Citrus peel, lactic sour/tart notes, light peaches, some must, oak. Really nice sour notes and super-sniffable.

T - Lactic sourness, fruity peach notes, oak, some acidic pucker in there as well. The finish is fruity sweetness and an nice sour bite.

M - Light body, good carbonation, dry finish.

O - A really nice sour from BC that I would have again all the time, if available. I was really looking forward to this one after sampling it out of the barrel, and it lived up to my memories of it. Get some!

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 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.
