Hazy gold with an orange hint. Head dissipated quickly but was super fluffy. Nice grapefruit and lemon aroma with a hint of spice. Hibiscus tends to be grapefruit-esq to me. Super dry and tart on the palate with a more citrus up front and a finish of saison spice.

This is one of the better saisons I have tried. Not too bitter or sour. Instead it finds the perfect middle ground. Lots of carbonation here which fits well with the citrusy taste. A really tasty, refreshing beer

Little too sweet for me, I think, but a very refreshing brew.

Pours out a hazy brown-tinged red. Looks like strawberry fruit leather. Thin barely-there head. Smells of light yeast with a strong fruit/berry note. Taste is very tart, with more Jamaica than rose. I was expecting more of a rosewater character, but the Jamaica strong arms it. I get a bit of vanilla. Yeast isn't very pronounced. Light body, strong carbonation, acid on tongue. Tasty saison, but not one of Jolly Pumpkin's best.
