look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured into my Jackie O's modified tulip.

A: A cloudy copper beer with fizzy white bubbles that fade into nothing at all pretty rapidly. Average looking sour beer. Appearance is never a strength of these beers since the acidity instantly kills the head. Looks flat, even though I know it's not based on the gushing at the onset.

S: Grapes, vinegar, lactic acid...oranges/lemons, some funk in there as well...

T/M: Pretty puckering. This is tremendous. Medium bodied...obviously solidly carbed. A really nice sweetness. Oak tannins, vineous grape notes throughout. Very complex sour beer...loving every sip.

O: Tremendous. The gushing carbonation makes this beer for me...pushes the acidity all over my palate and makes every taste pop. Might be the best Jackie O's sour I've had...haven't had a ton, but enough to call this my favorite.

Pours cloudy gold with a big amount of carbonation. Not quite a gusher, but still tons of head. Little retention or lacing once the carbonation settles down.

Aromas feature lemon and an earthy funk. Some oak, but not overly oaky or sour. Maybe a bit of berry as well.

Starts out tart and lemony. Some musty funk in the middle before finishing with a little vinegar sourness and oak. Not as sour as I was expecting. More funk than straight pucker.

Medium bodied, but really carbonation is the bugaboo of this beer. Way waaaay too carbed. Had to let this one chill for an hour to even start to pick up any flavors as the massive carbonation ground all back end palate flavors to a fizz.

I'd like to see this one with an appropriate level of carbonation. There was some good stuff here although the beer title is a little misleading. I've had other Jackie O's beer with more "pucker" than this one and overall this is a rare miss from a brewery that normally produces sours I love.

4.14/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 2.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 bottle 18/244.

Appearance - Gusher. Continues to foam out of control. Then no head. Murky and hazy golden body.

Smell - Jackie O's sours always have the dirtiest nose. This one is no exception, but it really hones in on the lemon and grassy funk. Some lambic elements to it. Definitely oaky.

Taste - Wow is it sour. Lactic sour, very lemony. Oaky right in the middle. Turns acetic as it progresses. Has a lot of lambic elements here as well. Flavor profile reminds me of Cuvee Rene.

Mouthfeel - Incredibly sour. Medium low carbonation and medium bodied.

Overall - Begs comparisons to a lambic, although it doesn't quite add up. Excellent for an American sour and probably the best sour from Jackie O's that I've had.
