look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a cloudy pale golden without much head.
S: Light funk, sweet fruits, plums, and vibrant peaches. Dry smelling with a great peach smell.
T: Tart and acidic flavors of fruity sour-patch kids. The peach is un-ripe in flavor. Very sour aftertaste.
M: Acidic mouthfeel, very tart and dry. Good carbonation but this beer is rough around the edges.
O: A bit unpolished. Great smell but the rest of the beer was one-dimensional and underwhelming.

Slightly murky blonde color with the hues of barrel juice/char darkening the beer at the center of the glass. No head, appears still.

The aroma foretells of a sour immediately. Orange pith, brett, and lactic sourness.

Very sour, near puckering at times. Nice acidity and orange type flavors.

Low carbonnation, drinks clean and smooth.

Overall one of the better Jackie O's sours this year.

Bottle shared at GRG1313’s tasting.

2011 vintage. Bottle # 81/204.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with peach, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with peach and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Poured into a tulip. Bottle #109 of 204 from 2011.

3.5 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. One and a half ifngers of frothy white head. Retention is average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Pleasant mix of funk and sour. Foremost, tart peaches stand out. A mix of earthy and musty funk follows - dryrotted sweat socks, wet rotting wood, oak, supple tannins. Tangy lactic acid in moderate amounts.

4.0 T: Tastes like the nose, but with a little more force. Tart and sweet peach with some extra berry notes from the lactic acid. Oak, light vanilla, and plenty of funk including barn woodines, sweat socks, unripened berry, and damp musty basement. Very nice.

4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good spritzy carbonation. Good creaminess as well.

4.5 D: I really enjoyed this, it's one of JO's better sours. Any category could have been a notch higher, so I'll bump the overall.

Poured a hazy, orange color with a small quickly dissipating white head.

The aromas begin with fresh peach nectar coupled with a huge amount of oak as well. A bit earthy and funky sourness emerges as it warms.

The tastes follow the nose but are a step down in intensity. Flavors of peaches, lessers lemon and maybe grapefruit. Solid tart lactic sour flavors throughout.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is dry and tart and oaky.

Overall this was a really nice beer but I feel I opened my bottle too soon. This could use another year to let the sourness and flavors develop into something special.

Sneak peak before the release!
This is one you'll want to get for sure

Pours a fairly clear golden yellow nice touch of white head. Looks pretty. Tart sour lots of peach on the nose. Very nice aroma. Tastes sweet peachy but incredibly dry. An odd combo. The more i drink the more i really like this one. Good mouthfeel. Overall enjoyable

Bottle courtesy of Nate. Thank you very much for the opportunity bud! Bottle number 152 of 204 from 2011.

Pours a nice golden yellow with swirls of orange highlights. Thin white head runs scared to a thin white collar.

Smells of acetic stone fruits and a dash of funk. By the nose I'm hoping this is unabashed sour.

Taste really amps up from the sniffer. Nice and sour: mainly orange and peach. Lactic notes mesh well with the high acidity. It's not the most complex beer, but the big peach notes and pucker make it quite enjoyable. There's a tart fruit juiciness just before the drying tannic oak finish that ties the beer together nicely.

Overall, this was quite enjoyable and I crushed the bomber as a tribute to our nation's independence. Suck it, England.

Bottle shared by Chris (spycow). Bottle #126/204. Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.

A - White foam settles to a thin collar, leaving a few wisps on top and negligible lacing. Transparent golden body.

S - Plenty of lactic sourness, peaches and other stone fruits, light acetobacter, musky funk, and light oak. It's largely what you'd expect from an American Wild Ale, but it's well done all the same.

T - The taste is quite similar, but with a bit less funk and a bit more Sweet Tarts candy-esque flavors and a lightly carbonic seltzer finish. Lots of lactic sourness and stone fruits - pretty much what you'd expect from a wine-barrel aged peach sour.

M - Light body, with pleasant but lower carbonation. Dry, with a lightly tannic texture to it and no obvious alcohol. Moderate acidity, but nothing excessive.

D - This is a really nice beer. Good balance of lactic and acetic sourness, with light funky notes. It's a lot like I remembered when we tasted this from the barrels, and I'm glad it didn't get to acetic by the time it was bottled. Jackie O's strongest sour and one I wish they would make in larger quantities.
