Sample at HMOG. These specials from Jackie-Os have been a highlight of the past two HMOGs for me. Last year was skipping pappy, this year, this beer. Incredible. High tart quotient and great fruity aroma. Good smooth well balanced flavor with a good amount of sourness. Really enjoyable.

Thanks to Dennoman. Bomber sampled @ RBBWG IV. 137/250. 2014 Vintage. Murky amber. Nose is sour fruit, metal, iron, tart rotting wood, puckering USA-style. Taste is sour plastic, lightly metallic, puckering red fruit jam, lightly watery, rotting red fruits. Rather thin, I am a bit confused as to why everyone loved this one so much.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks, Corbet. Muddy, ruby-tinted brown body, mostly opaque & topped with a dingy, gray-beige collar that never fully reaches "head" status. Aroma of sour, sour raspberries. Very tart on the nostrils with a touch of underlying sweet purée for balance. A bit of wet leather & a hint of toasted malt showing the brown ale beneath. Nice tartness on the palate; tart raspberry flesh, sour lemon, mild lactic acid, & soured lactobacillus yeast. Finishes with some deeper notes of leather, nuts, & raspberry perfume, perhaps with just a light touch of acetic lemon skin. Nearly puckering, dry aftertaste. Very nice wild ale.
