Poured from 750ml bottle. Thanks go out to gratefulbeerhead for this bottle. You rock Eric!
A- Poured a nice amber color with light pink hues overall. Three finger white head shows great retentino. Huge rocky chunks of lace left on the sides of the glass.
S- Floral in the nose right off the bat. Rose petal and hibiscus really come off in the front with hints of cracked pepper. Light oak toward the middle with hints of vanilla. Ending of the aroma shows big green apple aroma with a ton of barnyard funk. Light alcohol which I expected more to be honest.
T- Green apples on the front of the beer with a floral flavor which reminds me of rose petals. Hints of black pepper on the final part of the front. Middle shows off some light funk along with oak and vanilla. Green apple comes out more with that typical Jolly Pumpkin funk to it. Alcohol shows some light funk as well on the ending.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is lively and good for the style. Rose petals, light malt, and hints of funk left on the palate. Funky alcohol, hints of oak, and green apple are left long into the aftertaste. Flavors were actually well blended and felt no stop and jerk flavor profile. No off flavors were present although the green apple might have been a light off flavor. Medium heavy alcohol drying left on the palate.
O- This was a wonderful saison. Jolly Pumpkin makes a great tasting beer it seems at times without even trying. The ABV is a little on the light side which makes this beer easy drinking. Nice tasting beer for the summertime nights!
