Perfectly clear transparent brew. Good head production; OK retention. Body is the color of sun-burnt straw.

Impressively tart aroma, slightly musty with oak. Lemon, orange, clove, honey, ginger, vinegar.

Just as tart on the palate, but less fruity, with the emphasis clearly on the malt bill and yeast culture. Puckering finish. Light notes of honey, ginger, orange, tannins, lemon, tea.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned in 3/2020. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy blood oranges, ginger, lemon, lime, red grapefruit, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, apricot, passion fruit, red/green apple, white grape/wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, peppercorn, clove, wheat, cracker, white bread, light leathery/musty/lacto funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of blood orange, ginger, fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, citrus/fruity hops, oak, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy blood oranges, ginger, lemon, lime, red grapefruit, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, apricot, passion fruit, red/green apple, white grape/wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, peppercorn, clove, wheat, cracker, white bread, light leathery/musty/lacto funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and Brett spiciness on the finish. Light lingering sourness. Lingering notes of sour/tart/tangy blood oranges, ginger, lemon, lime, red grapefruit, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, apricot, passion fruit, red/green apple, white grape/wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, peppercorn, clove, wheat, cracker, white bread, light leathery/musty/lacto funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of blood orange, ginger, fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, citrus/fruity hops, oak, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with a fantastic malt/tart/tangy/spicy balance, and no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering sour/tart/tang/spice. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/acidic/tangy, and lightly sticky/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 5.7%. Overall this is an incredible fruited wild saison. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of blood orange, ginger, fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, citrus/fruity hops, oak, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp/clean to drink with the modestly acidic/tangy/drying finish; not overly lactic. Fantastic balance of juicy fruit, vibrant ginger, hops, and Brett/bacteria/saison yeast complexity; with nice oak foeder presence and a clean pale/wheat malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp acidic/tangy dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing style example as expected of the brewery. One of the best JP saisons I've had in a while!

16oz undated can (seasonal release for this quarter, so relatively fresh) poured into a tulip glass at fridge temp 5.7% ABV 35 IBU. The beer pours hefe-hazy, but not murky in a golden / light amber color. The head is nearly white in color and fizzles out in less time than it took to take a picture. No retention or lacing. The aroma is mild with the blood orange and ginger additions most prominent. No hint of Belgian or traditional saison yeast in the nose. Actually smells more wild and / or sour. The taste is slight sour at the front with the ginger popping out next and the blood orange coming through in the finish & aftertaste. The mouthfeel is thin bodied with fizzy carbonation and a bone dry finish. Overall, definitely not a saison as indicated on the can. Enjoyable enough, but I would probably like it less as the "can conditioned" effects changed the contents.

16 oz. can. Clear golden. Smells of strong ginger, lemon acidity, and some basement yeastiness. Tastes of strong ginger too. Sour citrus behind it. Not all that tart, though. Seems more aggressive because if the ginger. A little graininess and some more earthy yeast flavors cut the tartness. Medium light. Mostly ginger and citrus. The saison here is lost, but it drinks fine.
