Jackie O's Orange Oak
I was able to try a glass of Jackie O’s Orange Oak at a small bottle share even amongst friends. The beer pours an unfiltered orange color with a filmy white head. The aroma consists of sour lemon, orange, and wheat. The taste is sour right on the front end with clementine, tangerine, and orange sweetness rounding out the flavor. The orange flavors really pick up a lot of the peel flavor from the fruit, rather than the juicy core. On the finish, a little bit of pineapple peeks through with an oaky flavor on the tongue. The alcohol content is 9.0% ABV. The orange aspects of this beer are wonderful, and it is relatively easy to pick all of them out, as everyone drinking the beer did.
