on tap at The Three Penny Taproom poured into a tulip.

A~ copper orange like a brand new shiny penny, minimal head and no lacing at all.

S~ tons of pumpkin and sweet malts. all finished by peppery saison yeast.

T~ a lot more subtle here than the nose. a lot of spices come out, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. followed by lots of peppery, bready saison yeast just like the nose.

M~ very smooth, surprisingly dry and super nice carbonation.

O~ i'm glad i got to try this, i'm loving the newer approach on saisons/wilds using pumpkin. i haven't had too many Jackie O brews but i can definitely see the influence considering this is definitely different than most HF/Grassroots saisons. check out Three Penny Taproom if you're in the area and grab this beer along with the buttermilk chicken wings!
