Notes: The Mad Scientists kept tweakin' that Jammer till it rocked so hard. Bygone brewers repping the Sixpoint star provided the concept and our friends at Jacobsen Salt hooked us up with the key ingredient. It's salty, it's sour, and it's slammin.' It's Mad Science.

Canned last August, which explains the blowout price point ($9/15 pack). Oh well; it lists a best by date of this coming August. Guess I'm in luck. *pops the top* This is _real_ friggin' light all around, but it's kind of what I expected from 125 calories and it really hits the spot all hot and sweaty after walking the dog. I'm kind of confused by the nutrition facts on the label, though: 7g of fat? That can't possibly be right. Maybe it's .7? Do I need new glasses? Is this even a beer review anymore?

Aroma is of salt, and tartness. Pours a slightly cloudy straw, with a quickly fading white head. Light bodied beer, with a bright tart note, and a touch of salt. The light body makes this a very drinkable beer, and a good one on a summer day, or after a workout.

A: Hazy gold with thick foamy head and loads of puffy lacing.
N: Light citrus, bread, and a little funk.
T: Salty sour notes, soft citrus, mild bread notes, and a little dank taste.
M: Very light, crisp and mildly tart.
O: A simple sour, very light and refreshing. Not a bad beer just mild overall. Perfect for a light summer drink.

12oz can into a pint glass yesterday. canned 4/2/19, best by 4/1/20, so 4 months old. Part of Sixpoint's Summer Session 15-pack.

Looks good, hazy orange body, good streams of carbonation. Thick foamy white head which persists leaving great lacing.

Tart briney aroma with a mild earthy funk

A healthy swig reveals a pleasant albeit watery saltiness. Not really getting the coriander, and there is a very mild citrus hit at the end.

Mouth between medium and thin, finish mildly salty and very light citrus.

Overall, an enjoyable drink, little disappointed by the watery aspect, but extremely drinkable, especially on this warm Pennsylvania afternoon.

From the can, it pours a light hazy yellow-gold with a nice thick head that eventually reduces into a half inch thick layer. Scent is light lemon. In the mouth, it is light malt and citrus. Nice and refreshing.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a custom taster pint; canned 04/02/19, best by 04/02/20.
A: Pours an ever so slightly hazy, straw to golden color with a one and a half to two finger, white head, a persistent rim , but spotty lacing.
S: Tangy/tart right up front, clearing to grassy/grainy, then sea salt, coriander, and hard bread crust. A little yeasty funkiness at the very beginning, which I associate with a fresh pour of the Gose style, is also present, but clears.
T: Very tart. Flavors of tomato, celery, coriander, and sea salt that work extremely well together and in a beer format. Reminded me of V8 juice.
M: Light to medium bodied (for a Gose) with light to moderate carbonation.
O: Very light, flavorful, and enjoyable. Really had not contemplated that this flavor profile could work in a beer, but it does. To be honest, I do like to other versions of the Jammer family better.

Pours a mostly clear, yellow color with a thick, white, head. Smell is a little on the weak side, coriander, wheat, and hint of lemons. Taste is lemons, salt, wheat. Light body, carbonation as expected. Taste is okay, easy to drink, but eh, really lacks the tartness and salinity I'd expect from a gose.

Not the most solid representation of the style but it is refreshing. Especially by the pool when it's 90°. It lacks saltiness and tartness of others but it's still pretty good. The merest hint of tartness. Glad to have been able to try this. I've heard others Rave about how much they liked it but it was just okay to me.

Around a medium body with average carbonation that dissipates quickly
Aroma is a little weak but not unpleasant,salty lemons,yeasty doughy bread. Grain and lemony citrus is a little more dominant
Taste is salty with just a bit of sweetness. The malt,wheat and lemon citrus is definitely in the forefront.
Overall it's a decent beer,worked well on a hot day sitting in the yard

I reviewed the new Jammer sampler pack and am including all of my notes here for review.

Let me start with my take on Jammer to provide some context. I do not like that beer. When I first had it in 2015 I thought it severely lacked two key aspects that I want in this style: Acidity and salinity. And it was too herbal in flavor. I really thought it fell flat in both of those categories, especially when compared to beers like Westbrook Gose, Anderson Valley The Kimmke, The Yink and the Holy Gose, Two Roads Tanker Truck Series and Bayerische Bahnhof.

At the time, Sixpoint was often revising regular beers with each subsequent release. I liked Jammer 2.0 better, as it brought more acidity to the table.

Fast forward to 2019 and the Jammer mixed pack seems like a no brainer. Light in body, ABV and calories. Perfect for the upcoming season. And it is.

Once again, Jammer did not cut it for me. I thought it fell flat and I’d much rather drink the others examples I mentioned above or some of the fruited version reviewed below.

Citrus Jammer

Definitely more sweet than the base beer. It has lemon and lime citrus notes, but there was some added sweetness that I thought left the beer a bit heavier and less fresh. Was hoping for some more tartness.

Ruby Jammer

Definitely offers a nice grapefruit juice flavor and pith. This one has the most notable difference on the mouthfeel feel, with a definitive grapefruit pith dryness and feeling on the palate. Added orange and grapefruit and citrus and acidity. Seems more subtle to me than the tropical version. Very nice stuff.

Tropical is my most highly rated of the bunch.

Tropical Jammer

The can says Mango and Pineapple. I could see it, but before I read that my initial thought was Pina Colada. Coconut and pineapple. The pineapple is obvious but apparently I mixed up the Mango for Coconut. There’s a lemon zestiness that together with the dry, malted wheat flavor reminding me of a lemon square. This one is really nice and definitely elevates the base beer to a whole other level. Some added sweetness from the mango and acidity from the pineapple. Really nice stuff.

Berry Jammer

This beer pours translucent, with a slight haze. A densely packed bone white head with some larger bubbles mixed throughout. The head eventually disappears and I am left with a thin layer of foam across the top and a thin ring around the edge of my glass. Streams of bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. Pale reddish-orange color.

The aroma is a slightly acidic. Salinity is noticeable. Cherry and strawberry sweetness. A light wheat/hay aspect.

The flavor is mildly acidic. Fresh berry flavor of raspberry and green strawberry. Dry wheat finish as hoped for in the style.

Aqueous. Lots of prickly carbonation. Dry finish.

The berry juice, whatever fruit is used, brings more acidity to the table and offers a very fresh and crisp berry experience, with some sweeter berry notes on nose. I know see it is cranberry, raspberry and strawberry. The latter two stand out to me, and this version brings nice acidic berry notes to the table.

Poured from a 12 oz. can.Has a hazy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit salty. Taste is of lemons, wheat, a bit of salt, slightly sour, dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but not something I would want a steady diet of.
