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: The aroma consists of fresh raspberries, tart raspberries, and a touch of lemon. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a minimal beige head. The flavor starts with heavy sour raspberry with just a touch of caramel sweetness. The finish is heavy sour lemon. Its medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2015
SF5. Pours hazy dark brown, no head. Piercing sour aroma. Flavor is sour, notes of cherry, light woodsy note, some horseblanket. Complex. Rather awesome. Just a hint of molasses sweet running in the backbone, perhaps hinting at some age. Good stuff, really liked this!

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.
