Bottle thanks to alexsdad ! Pours a rusty brown color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots going on in this beer... big sour cherry notes in the nose mingle with vinous acidity and layers of caramel, earthy compost and some funky wet wood. The raspberry starts coming through in the palate midway through and pairs nicely of the cherry notes adding a layer of earth ripe raspberry and tartness to enhance the sour cherry flavors. Long complex finish with great barrel character !

Somehow actually tried a jackie os this weekend. And this one was not foul, obviously an intentional sour, leans towards sweet, tannic, berryskin.
