BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jackie O's Pub & Brewery
Ohio, United States
jackieos.com

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.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 7 held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Bottle # 189/380.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily 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/berry aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic quality on the finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors that makes it easy to drink.

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet. This is bottle 59/380.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear mahogany color that has a strong red tint to it. There is a layer of off white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the pour.

Smell: There is a strong sweet and sour component to this one. I'm getting sweet, jam like raspberries along with a tart vinegar note and some dark sour like funk.

Taste: There isn't as much sweet raspberry here as there was in the smell. The raspberries are still here, they just show up more in the tart component. There is a hint of vinegar along with the raspberries. There is just a touch of sweetness underneath the tart raspberries. The finish is sour.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with aggressively tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very good raspberry sour. I would have liked a little bit more sweetness from the fruit in the taste, but I still really liked it.

Bottle next to the campfire after having picked up my bottles as Jackie O’s earlier in the day. Served in a wine glass. Pours a beautiful pink-red with a touch of a garnet hue. Nose is loads of fresh, tart raspberries alongside some lactic acid and restrained earthiness. Flavor is full of tart red raspberries. Behind those come some nice musty, earthy notes. Acidity in the background. Acid and fruit balance is quite nice, with enough funk to add the right amount of complexity. Very nice.

Hazy reddish-brown pour, with a collar of off-white bubbles. In the nose, raspberries, lactic, acetic, woody, with a good dose of dark roasty malts. More of the same in the taste, tart raspberries, lacto and acetic qualities, leather and wood, toasted wheat, dark malts bringing in a touch of roastiness. A lot going on, and seemingly in contrast, but the end result was quite balanced overall. Medium body, lively carbonated. A nice brew all in all.

Reviewed from notes. Shared by Sasha - thanks. Bottle #133 of 250 (2014).

A: Pours a light brown with reddish highlights under an off-white, 1/2" head which yields some spotty lace.

N: Juicy raspberries, basalmic tartness, fruity.

T: Fruity raspberries, aged wood, dark roasted malts, some tartness.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Tart and fruity finish.

O: Soured brown and oak aged with raspberries is enjoyable.

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.
