look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: A hazy, medium copper ale with a fairly deep red hue. The persistent head pours with about a finger of rocky, ecru colored head tinted with a touch of red that leaves some thick ropes of lacing on the glass.

S: Aromas of brett and hibiscus a prominent along with some light fruit aromas. A fruity and herbal nose backed by a solid barnyard funk. There is a light spicy hops note, a slight oak character when it warms and little malt character.

T: A firm tartness with a citrus zest bitterness dominates giving the impression of equal parts brett, rose hips and hibiscus contributing the funky bitterness. The balance is firmly bitter with a There is a soft malt character in the front and middle but it ends fairly dry with an aftertaste of herbal and citrus peel-like bitterness.

M: A fluffy medium light bodied beer with a strong level of carbonation that gets just a little prickle on the tip of the tongue.

O: The saison base is exceptional on it's own with a some sourness and barrel character but I really like is the interaction of flavors between the hibiscus and rose hips when added to a soured beer. Jolly Pumpkin beers are always a treat and this one is right up there with their best; thanks Dude!
