BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jackie O's Pub & Brewery
Ohio, United States | website

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We took our Razz wheat and soured it with B. Lambicus, Pediocaccus, and Lactobacilious it was then blended with our Organic Honey Nut Brown. Then blend was keg conditioned for 6 months allowing the wild yeast and bacteria to gorge themselves on the sugar rich nut brown portion of the blend. This beer is ripe with complexities including a fruity, musty, beady, and leathery nose and a light caramel covered raspberry flavor that finishes very tart and semi dry.

This is the 2016 version, listed as a sour brown ale aged in oak barells with rapsberries.
A - mahogany color, gentle carbonation, stunning cap of loose froth.
S - Berries, toffee, beautiful earthy undertones, some alcohol rises through, with warmth the melding of the rapsberrie and the oak stitch together and are inspired
T - The base is a solid malt with a bit of light roast, sour component is delicate, the rapsberrie contribution is assertive but not overpowering. Time in the barrel only accetuates the flavors adding some vanilla.
M - Medium in body, soft on the palate, the water profile is neutral. Tartness creaps in, the the palate response reflects the tension between the base and the final product. Wonderfully balanced the feel is delightful.g
O - What a treat this is, sour, and tart.This release shows real skill, the use of the rapsberry is spot on, adding to the nose, while not dominating. The barrel touch is refined.
A true delight.
Cheers

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for opening this with me, BdubleEdubleRUN!

Dark rose and maroon. Lots of ruby tones. No clarity though--this beer is clouded with chunks of fruit. Very nice. I like!

Lots of berry character in the aroma, with big notes of oak, some lactic character, though not a ton, and a bit of dried grass.

Flavor is very fruit-forward as well, nearly juice like, if not for the complementary oak, earth, and moderate sour character. Very tasty.

Medium to full in body, especially for the style, with moderate carbonation.

Another winner from Jackie O's. Whales, bro.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 22oz. bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a thin, light cream colored head with moderate retention. Beer is a dark, clear mahogany. Lacing is patchy but sparse with little stick. Average.

Nose is tart raspberry, strawberry and other red fruit. Robust and juicy. Simple.

Opens crisp and tart. Raspberry, strawberry and vinegar. Tart, puckering, and seedy. More fruit foward in the middle with a touch of earthy bitterness at the finish. Aftertaste of puckering fruit, bitter seed and fruit stem. Decent.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down crisp and dry. Puckering finish with a lingering, dry aftertaste. Nice.

A solid beer overall but the flavor is separated between watery and tart and puckering. Worth trying but it's not one of the better offerings in the style.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle 56 of 380. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - First, the bottle. Awesome new labels from Jackie O's. The logo is clean and sophisticated. The wax, however, makes me want to hurt someone. It's like plastic. And lots of it. Shit it's annoying. The beer is brown with heavy red hues. No real head, just some off-white bubbles.

Smell - Raspberries everywhere. Huge aroma of sour raspberries. Dominated by the raspberries, but nice.

Taste - Again, lots of raspberries, but some framboise notes of funk. Just a bit. Harsh acidic flavor. Extremely sour, maybe too much for my tastes.

Mouthfeel - Quite sour. Enamel-eating sour. Medium carbonation and a pretty light body.

Overall - I hate to peg it back too much for being so sour, but I don't like them that way. The sourness covers up flavors I want to taste. That said, this is a clean, well-fruited sour that was quite delicious.
