Poured into a chalice glass, looked copper orange/red with pink highlights, frothy white and persistent head on mine that seems to have picked up some hint from the beer and nice lasting lace. The first smell is a nice mix of bready malt, brett funk and tart fruit. I expected more sourness from JP, but was first impressed by the brett character. Wonderful farmhouse ale flavors like fresh hay without the heavy barnyard flavors. This is followed by tart fruits, peach/apricot, berries and the floral flavors of the roses and hibiscus. The roses and hibiscus were never overwhelming. Mouthfeel is dry and clean with a crisp finish. Another great beer from JP, really happy that it wasn't as sour as many of their beers.

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.
