Notes/Commercial Description:
We took our Razz wheat and soured it with B. Lambicus, Pediocaccus, and Lactobacilious it was then blended with our Organic Honey Nut Brown. Then blend was keg conditioned for 6 months allowing the wild yeast and bacteria to gorge themselves on the sugar rich nut brown portion of the blend. This beer is ripe with complexities including a fruity, musty, beady, and leathery nose and a light caramel covered raspberry flavor that finishes very tart and semi dry.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

22oz bottle poured into a Jackie O's Munich glass

Pours a reddish amber with a thin, 1/2 finger beige head

Smells of funk and berries - sour/lacto, with a heavy dose of the razz wheat and a bit of roastiness as well

This is straight up tart, and really well balanced with the raspberry. Maybe a bit of oak/wood, but really predominately sour/lacto and berry. Definitely the tartest beer I have had from Jackie O's.

Mouthfeel is full and light at the same time (can that really work? - it does here) Nicely carbonated, truly a pleasure

Overall a fantastic sour and certainly my favorite that has been released by Jackie O's. I wish I had several more of these.

Evelyn was brewed for the Jackie O's STAFF membership. The best I can gather, it is a raspberry sour brown. Best ABV guess would be 7%.

Sexy bottle with a minimalist black label with purple script and purple wax. Pours A hazy brownish color with a tannish head. Looks the part. The smell is light vinegar, acidic and tart raspberry. The taste is moderately sour, light raspberry with lots of nice balance and no off favors. This hits the level of sourness in this type of beer perfectly. The mouthfeel has a moderate body, like the wanderer, but with more carbonation. Overall, this beer is great. Reminds me of a mildly raspberried C+C LaFolie, with that sharp bite and good level of sourness.

One thing that was nice was after establishing my impressions, I dropped a few raspberrys in. Not only do they taste great in the end, but they add just a touch of brightness. Great work Brad! My favorite Jackie O's sour!
