3.68/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle # 188/197. 2012. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Pours like grapefruit juice. No head. No bubbles. Hazy pinkish orange.

Smell - Musty fruit acidic aroma. Cherry and a touch of funk. Lots of different acids and aromas coming out of this. Not a "clean" sour aroma.

Taste - Strong sourness right up front. Consistent backdrop of cherry, but it plays second fiddle to the acidity of this thing. Puckering, like many other Jackie O's offerings. Too much, really, without a lot of complexity.

Mouthfeel - Dry and really sour. Oak comes out, too.

Overall - Evelyn was more impressive. This had more sourness and a less complex fruit presence.

3.96/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Big thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing this one. Served in a DryHop taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a partial cap, thick collar, and minimal lacing. Murky peach juice body.

S - A tad plasticy, unfortunately. There's a hefty dose of lemony lactic sourness and perhaps a touch of cherry pie in the periphery, along with very aggressive oak notes. I didn't realized this was a fruit sour until someone mentioned it, and if I had to guess I would have picked apricot or peach.

T - The taste is similarly heavy on the oak and lactic acidity, but with some dirty and medicinal brett flavors tossed in for good measure. There's some tart cherry, particularly emphasizing the skin, but it's merely a complementary flavor rather than the focus.

M - Medium body, quite dry, with no alcohol, pleasant carbonation, and moderate lingering acidity.

D - A bit too oaky and light on the fruity for my tastes. The base sour is stereotypical American Wild, and there's not enough here to make this stand out in a crowded field. Easy enough to drink at 5%, but the Oaky Golden Pucker that Chris also shared was the superior beer across the board.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

The beer pours a slightly cloudy orangish amber color with not much head to speak of. I'm getting funky tart cherries, and some lemon juice in the nose along with some oak. The taste is full of cherries up front. This is a really tart beer that reminds me more of citrus juice than vinegar. Funky but light with a tart cherry and oak finish. The body is medium to think with tingly carbonation and a really dry finish.

I really enjoyed this one and would be happy to have more if they make it.

3.8/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bottle at a tasting on 1/4/2012.

First pours are extremely translucent reddish color with a little bit of a head. The bottom of the bottom by contrast was a really thick haze of sediment.

Smells tart, slightly fruity, not a ton of cherry in the nose though.

Taste is tartness first, then you get cherries, more than in the nose. Not a very complex sour, it's a pretty clean sour to fruit transition.

Mouthfeel is nice a crisp but could probably use slightly more carbonation, it felt like a light amber ale or something.

A good sour, easy to drink. Would give it a 3.75, so I split the difference between taste and overall.

7.6/10
