Honey yellow with dense marshmallow head. Fresh scents of strawberry and hibiscus. Starts off with a floral funk and finishes with a green apple tartness. Tingly carbonation with a lingering dryness. Great balance between the subtleness of the flower flavors and the puckering sour fruit. The result is a refreshing beer.

This pours a ruddy amber in the glass.

The aroma is directly, distinctly sour with a sharp funk.

Tastes sour in the most wonderful of ways too. Sharply sour, with that now-cliché ‘barnyard funk’ coming across, followed with a great finish. An intriguing beer. One I’d be happy to revisit!

750 ml bottle poured into a Jolly Pumpkin goblet.

A: Bright red-orange with a slight off white, almost light light pink rocky head. Looks like it will have some good lacing and is crystal clear. Definitely an interesting color. Most likely from the rose hips, pedals and definitely the hibiscus.

S: A little lacto tartness and also smells like its going to be dry. A little sweetness from fruitiness of the hibiscus intermingling with the Brett funk.

T: Nice hint of spices and just enough tartness and Brett fruitiness to let you know this isn't your standard ale. Definitely shows some barrel aging character but not as much as other JP beers, obviously this isn't aged as long but adds a little extra.

After letting it linger a bit, some of the oak comes through and giving the overall spice from the yeast a good balance. After taste lets the tropical fruitiness of the Brett come through and its delicious.

M: Light bodies with good carbonation and extremely refreshing and drinkable.

O: I've had this on tap and was no where near as delicious as in the bottle. I had purchased the bottle long before trying on tap and was almost regretting it after sampling on tap. That would have been a huge mistake. This is a delicious beer and a good buy for ya'll JP fans.

Pours a nice, pink-hued amber with an enormous pastel pink head. Aroma subdued, but tangy. Taste is wonderfully tangy with a rosy hint at the end. A bit too effervescent on the tongue for me to get much more, probably should have let it sit longer but it was too good.
