Bottle: Poured a light pink/orange color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light hibiscus notes with some tart notes. Taste is a nice mix between some hibiscus notes with a dry and tart palate and some floral notes. Body is not as full as I would have expected with good carbonation. Well done as per most beer form this brewery though I would have preferred a fuller body.

Picked up at Julio's back in, I think March. This bottle is Batch 5 bottled 1/20/2010. Debated letting this sit for a few more months but couldnt resist cracking it. Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear copper pour with a good two finger head that faded to leave a nice semithick cloud and average side lacing.

S - Smell is nice and inviting, good sweet malts, grains, and yeasts with a very nice rose/floral background.

T - More of those nice sweet malts and typical saison barnyard funk/yeast notes. The big draw is the very nice floral notes that this beer offers in the taste. Good light almost perfumey flavors of roses and hibicus. Tasty.

M - Nice slightly higher than usual carbonation on this one. Very nice and sharp on the tongue. Prevents big gulps.

O - Overall this was a nice offering from JP. Theres the usual JP notes of slight sourness, funk, and good yeasts. On top of all that is a nice and tasty floral presence. Very nice brew.

A - Poured out a hazy, golden orange color with a three-finger, tan head of bubbly foam. The long lasting head receded to leave sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled like roses. It really did. A great yeasty quality, too with a grainy presence.

T - It tastes very floral and fruity with a sweet caramel backbone. Some grain flavor with a touch of spiciness.

M - It was very crisp and sharp. A medium bodied ale with a clean, dry finish.

O - This is a fantastic beer. Don't know why I passed on it the first time around. Another great brew from Jolly Pumpkin.

What a beer! Let it warm a bit out of the fridge first. Then poured with a voluminous, billowy, frothy, foamy, fluffy, cream colored head that lasts all the way down and loads of clingy lace. Color is a hazy, pink tinged amber. Aroma is yeast, floral, earth, malt. Flavor's like nose, plus the JP trademark tartness which is more balanced in this case with just enough sweetness and yeast bitterness. Body and carbonation are great. Finish is clean, like flavor, and of average length. Superb saison with some interesting twists!
