2011 bomber #84 of 216. Thanks to BA Stormking47 the biggest out of state homer of Jackie O's who hoards more bottles of their beer than the brewery itself. Thanks for breaking out a bottle of this precious elixir you shit bird.

Poured into a matching Jackie O's staff short pils glass that I swiped from the cabinet of the previously mentioned user. The brew appears copper in color with a fine white bubble formation. Some yellowish hints are noted around the edges and spots of lace stick to the glass.

The smell is fresh and seedy like one would expect from the inclusion of raspberry. Also present are hints of funk, sulfur and footy to almost cheesey grain. Not bad.

The taste is tart with the raspberry inclusion sitting center stage. More sips make these beer lean into more of an acidic realm with a backing of cheese and funk. A bit of lemony lactic tartness and wheaty grain inclusion are present into the aftertaste.

This is a medium bodied brew with a light to modest level of carbonation. Fruity that blenda from tart to snappy and sharp. I would drink this again if the opportunity presented itself. Thanks again Wiss.

Appearance: Pours a pink lemonade color with a modest head that leaves just a smidge of lacing behind

Smell: All tartness, with raspberry and magnificent funk

Taste: Raspberry lemonade flavors, up front, and then, the tart and funky parade begins; loads of complexity in the interplay, through the finish, where the oaked aspect leaves an impression'

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: Even by the high standards of Jackie O's, this beer is quite an achievement; so different and so good

A: poured a reddish fuchsia in color with pink highlights and a thin head that barely left any lacing sticking to the glass.

S: lots of raspberry goodness exploding our from the aroma that was more fruit like and not juice. it did have a little lemony citrus, oakiness is present, some acidic character, and mild funkiness.

T: like the aroma it had tons of raspberry fruit flavor upfront including the pit skin and all alongside nice oaky accents, citrusy lemon zing that helped on the sour factor, a little acidic notes, slight funk but nice sour bite.

M: the brew was medium to light in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a mildly sweet, funky, oaky, fruity and sour finish.

O: It was way better than I thought it was going to be, really surprised me since its from the midwest.

The beer was chilled and actually a bit too cold when opened but this was done to prevent gushers. The beer was served in a snifter and allowed to warm to a proper temperature.

A- The body of the beer is a bright clear ruby coloration. The head of the beer was a lightly purple tinged coloration but quickly resolved.

S- The aroma of the beer is lactic, slightly acitic riding this wave of funkyness is lemony raspberry aroma. Very nice aroma!

T- The flavor of the beer leads with plenty of sour and funky notes yes plenty of lactic and acitic flavors nicely puckering at times. A nearly perfect blending of tart and sour raspberry rides this sour train.

M- The body of the beer is light and funky. The carbonation is lively and helps to cut some of the funkyness up.

O- This is a beer that the Jackie O's crew should be proud of! A joy to drink from start to finish makes me wish I had several more of these available.

Bottle (2011)

Thanks to the Pittsburgh gang for sending this to the Cali gang!

(Aged for 1 year)

Clear orange and light ruby with a small head that leaves dots of lace down the glass.

A very nice aroma for the style: distinct, strong raspberry aroma, milled grains, light caramel, and lactic acid. Complete.

The flavor is also quite nice, with big notes of raspberry and mild funk combining nicely, along with flavors of grain and sweet bread. This also has moderate to high levels of lactic sourness.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

I would love to have this one again! This one was better than the sum of its parts.

Bottle to Great Lakes Snifter

2011 Vintage
Bottle 202/216

CA Gang Bang BIF

App- A medium orange with a good density behind it. Zero head or cling with only a small swirl of bubbles on top of the beer.

Smell- The raspberry notes are there with also a small subtle sweet tart grainy note. Had a small wheat aroma with a bit of vinegary lactic acid.

Taste- Only had a small sour flavor but was quite tasty. The raspberry shined through and was a bit thick and had a small acid bite.

Mouth- A medium bodied sour with a lighter medium carbonation. Residual raspberry acid flavors.

Drink- I like the flavors. Most raspberry beers have a weird taste to me. This cut through it and was a good small sour.

Thanks to Callmecoon for sharing this one at NoSignsOfPain's birthday bottleshare hosted by mrbubbler.

Bottle # 96/216.

Pours a slightly murky honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a 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 raspberry aromas. Taste is much the same with a very tart and acidic flavor. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice sour fruit presence.

A - Quite clear, the Dynamo Hum is a reddish/rose color with orange hues. Not really any head though.

S - Sour - nice and acidic/lactic. The fruity aromas are well integrated - the raspberry is mellow but easily distinguishable.

T - The raspberries are much more assertive than in the aroma. Very sour - about as sour as anything Jackie O's has yet produced. Sour, in all the best ways possible to be frank. There is some nice orange and tangerine flavor going on.

M - There's a notable lactic/puckering effect with this beer. That said, Dynamo Hum drinks really cleanly, has a pleasant finish, and appropriately light carbonation.

O - This was an excellent beer, and lived up to my highest hopes for what it could be. This could easily compete with some of the Cascade sours.

I have since had one or two bottles of this and it is holding up well, though I think I preferred it on tap.

Pours bright pink with a couple fingers of off-white pink hued head. Good retention and lacing.

Intense raspberry tartness in the aroma. Bits of oak and some bugs as well.

Heavy raspberry in the flavor as well. I don't think I've ever had a fruited beer that bursts just like this one. Big raspberry tartness accompanied by some lactic acid and oak. Tart, but not overwhelmingly sour. Finishes bone dry almost like a wine.

Medium body with good carbonation.

This is a fantastic beer and one I hope they release again soon. Another great Jackie O's sour.
