4.75/5  rDev +16.4%

Very large deviation on the rating but one of the best (if not THE best) non-sour/brett saisons I've ever had and that deserves a high rating in my book.

Other notes: Batch 304,306. Bottled on 02/12/14.

Appearance - 4/5
High carbonation upon opening. Took a while to pour the glass because the foam would build up quick and then I'd have to wait for it to die down before pouring more.
Pours a deep orange-red. The color is beautiful, not sure if I've seen such a vibrant shade of this particular color before (in a beer). A little hazy, hard to see through it, but you can a little if you hold it up to a bright light. After the crazy carbonation dies down, the head is minimal.

Smell - 4/5
My initial whiff consisted of beer/alcohol smell, tartiness (the same tartness flavor that other JP beers have). Fruitiness as well, maybe cherries and sour apples. Maybe a little bit of floral smell (bottle says beer brewed with rose hips, rose petals, and hibiscus

Taste - 4.2/5
Jolly Pumpkin fruity-tartness flavor, though toned down a bit perhaps. It's fairly sweet. I would say the beer has a juicy feel to it. There's also some saison spicy taste. Overall the flavor is quite nice

Mouthfeel - 4.35/5
The carbonation is not too strong, just the right level for this beer. In between crisp and creamy. The beer is fairly smooth. As I said above, the beer has a juicy feel to it, at least that's the way I would describe it, but it's hard to describe. But I like the feel.

Overall - 4/5
Overall, this was quite a good beer. It wasn't really floral tasting as I was expecting due to the rose petals, rose hips, and hibiscus. Perhaps I'm just not refined enough to taste those flavors (what does a rose taste/smell like anyway?). The nice color and mouthfeel combined together to make an overall good drinking experience.
