Thanks to JaBier for sharing bottle #144/204 during Beer Savant’s 50th birthday bash. This beer pours a brownish-copper color with a medium thick bubbly beige head that evaporates eventually to some large bubbles around the edges. Spotty lacing on the glass. Vinous aroma with notes of oak and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of tart fruit, oak and earthy malt. The finish is slightly sour with a woody tart plum aftertaste. Good beer overall.

Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Pours a deep purple amber with an off-white head that starts at the edges and remains throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of plum and red fruit backed by tartness and a bit of earthiness. Flavor begins with sour plums that grows to a bit of acid with backing funk and a bit of sweet grains.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle at a tasting at James’ place courtesy of James and his giant cellar. Pours a deep brown with a medium sized beige head. Barrel and wood, salty, touches of dark fruit and cherry. Medium bodied, lightly tannic, slight acid and toffee, a bit of funk. Long funkiness and warm barrel notes. Tannic and woody. Cool and interesting.

22 oz. bottle via trade with Puddintane- thanks again, Dave! 2011 release, bottle 80/204. Pours a murky brown color with a beige head. Lots of fruits in here, with caramel and sweet malts, oaky funk, and a sour mash character throughout. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, funky mouthfeel.

Bottle acquired in trade. Pours a richer deep brownish amber pour. Richer haze. Froty tannish head. Laces ok. Aromas are dark plums, sour lactic elements. Some dark fruit, lemons, acid, and oak. Initiall is medium sourness, dry plums, sourness, rich elements. Some middle is richer sour plums, a bit of cherry, firm lactic presence. Touch of vinegar. The plums give it some deeper fruit flavor, shying away from a more vinegar or acedic presence. Some oak, gentle carmelized or biscuity malts give some chase, firm sourness yet not overwhelming linger on the finish. Some vinegar, bit of red winey like qualities, cherries, plums, lactic. Well balance with some firm flavors for the style. Tasty.

Sample at Jackie O-s. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a small bubbly beige head. The aroma has tart plums, some hints of caramel, wood, and this note that I can only describe as the Jackie O-s funk. The flavor has the tart plums, wood, caramel, sour apple, slightly acidic and some funk. This is another very drinkable sour from Brad and the crew. I need to try this in a bottle soon.

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Sample at Jackie O’s 6th Anniversary Extravaganza on 12/3/11. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Not sure what a green plum is, but it must be a lot like a red or purple plum because I was able to pick out plum as the fruit without having to read the description. Aroma also contains dark malt and and funky sourness in addition to the strong plum essence. Malty and funky flavor with a bit of roast and chocolate before a sour plum finish. Tasty!
