A beautiful blood orange amber with a thick reddish head. The lacing too is very thick on the glass.
Tart and floral fruity aroma. Rosehips. Hibiscus. Green apple. and a little apricot.
tart pear and apple flavor followed by sweet berries. lemon zest. This is fruity and floral all the way. So refreshing and perfect for summer degrees over 100.
Smooth and clean. Goes down very easily. Its highly carbonated so beaware.
This is by far the best saison/farmhouse ale i have ever had. This means a lot since these are my favorite styles. Pat on the back Jolly Pumpkin for producing such a wonderful brew.

Poured from a capped 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderately gentle hand. Batch 304,306. Bottled on 02/12/14.
A: Cloudy orange with a pink tint. 3 fingers of rocky off-white head. Good retention. Gushed a bit with opening. Nice lacing.
S: Lightly musty, lightly tart Belgian yeast. Hints of rose petals and other florals. Lemon. Interesting strawberry notes.
T: Tart and lightly fruity up front with development of a faint pale maltiness and mild hop bitterness. Berry sweetness flashes before a fairly dry finish. A floral, slightly sour bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Alcohol is minimal.
M: Moderate to high carbonation, but not overly prickly. Actually rather smooth feeling. Light to moderate body. Good vehicle for the flavors noted above.
O: Another solid offering from Jolly Pumpkin. Enough embellishment to create some interesting depth, but even-handed enough not to overwhelm the underlying base beer. The berry notes, in particular, are quite nice.
