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.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 22oz. bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a thin, light cream colored head with moderate retention. Beer is a dark, clear mahogany. Lacing is patchy but sparse with little stick. Average.

Nose is tart raspberry, strawberry and other red fruit. Robust and juicy. Simple.

Opens crisp and tart. Raspberry, strawberry and vinegar. Tart, puckering, and seedy. More fruit foward in the middle with a touch of earthy bitterness at the finish. Aftertaste of puckering fruit, bitter seed and fruit stem. Decent.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down crisp and dry. Puckering finish with a lingering, dry aftertaste. Nice.

A solid beer overall but the flavor is separated between watery and tart and puckering. Worth trying but it's not one of the better offerings in the style.

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.

Bottle (2012)

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.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 7 held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Bottle # 189/380.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some fruity/berry aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic quality on the finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors that makes it easy to drink.

Hazy reddish-brown pour, with a collar of off-white bubbles. In the nose, raspberries, lactic, acetic, woody, with a good dose of dark roasty malts. More of the same in the taste, tart raspberries, lacto and acetic qualities, leather and wood, toasted wheat, dark malts bringing in a touch of roastiness. A lot going on, and seemingly in contrast, but the end result was quite balanced overall. Medium body, lively carbonated. A nice brew all in all.
