Shared by dc55110, thanks!
Hazy, reddish, blood brown with a fast departing head. Quite complex aroma that was off putting at first but got enjoyable soon --- framboise, earth and grass.
I preferred aroma to taste; I found the intense sourness hindering to the enjoyment of this beer. There was also an odd nuttiness in the finish but I am neutral about that. The body and carbonation were fine.
It was a good beer but too acetic and sour for my taste.

Thanks for opening this with me, BdubleEdubleRUN!
Dark rose and maroon. Lots of ruby tones. No clarity though--this beer is clouded with chunks of fruit. Very nice. I like!
Lots of berry character in the aroma, with big notes of oak, some lactic character, though not a ton, and a bit of dried grass.
Flavor is very fruit-forward as well, nearly juice like, if not for the complementary oak, earth, and moderate sour character. Very tasty.
Medium to full in body, especially for the style, with moderate carbonation.
Another winner from Jackie O's. Whales, bro.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle 56 of 380. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - First, the bottle. Awesome new labels from Jackie O's. The logo is clean and sophisticated. The wax, however, makes me want to hurt someone. It's like plastic. And lots of it. Shit it's annoying. The beer is brown with heavy red hues. No real head, just some off-white bubbles.
Smell - Raspberries everywhere. Huge aroma of sour raspberries. Dominated by the raspberries, but nice.
Taste - Again, lots of raspberries, but some framboise notes of funk. Just a bit. Harsh acidic flavor. Extremely sour, maybe too much for my tastes.
Mouthfeel - Quite sour. Enamel-eating sour. Medium carbonation and a pretty light body.
Overall - I hate to peg it back too much for being so sour, but I don't like them that way. The sourness covers up flavors I want to taste. That said, this is a clean, well-fruited sour that was quite delicious.

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet. This is bottle 59/380.
Appearance: The beer pours a clear mahogany color that has a strong red tint to it. There is a layer of off white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the pour.
Smell: There is a strong sweet and sour component to this one. I'm getting sweet, jam like raspberries along with a tart vinegar note and some dark sour like funk.
Taste: There isn't as much sweet raspberry here as there was in the smell. The raspberries are still here, they just show up more in the tart component. There is a hint of vinegar along with the raspberries. There is just a touch of sweetness underneath the tart raspberries. The finish is sour.
Mouthfeel: The body is medium with aggressively tingly carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: This is a very good raspberry sour. I would have liked a little bit more sweetness from the fruit in the taste, but I still really liked it.
