look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a cloudy ruby with an absolutely huge white head that is rocky, self standing, and lingers and laces. The head on this beer is worth the purchase alone.
Smells of sour funk with some sweet apple, wood, and general tartness.
Taste is tart and astringent up front that goes into a more mellow cherry wood middle before finishing with a hint of bitterness and sweetness despite being dry.
Creamy, lighter body with high carbonation is spot on.
Really nice funky/tart beer with notes or wood and some apple. These rose hips, barely apparent in the finish, are not flowers of evil, oh no, they are flowers of joy.

4.14/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
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.
