"a YEASTY SPICY AND CITRUS TINGED BREW. Adequately sour, has the JP house flavor and aroma. Murky as all hell and a bit explosive, but I enjoyed the 20-22 oz that were left in the botle after :) Next time I’ll open over the glass."

750ml Bottle shared at the Midlands meeting on 23rd Aug 2014, cheers Tom. Hazy pour with a thin head. No horse blankets but plenty of farmyard aromas along with some citrus notes. The taste is similar but with a mild peppery and spicy feel within the flavours, there is also a sourness from those citrusy hints in the nose: my first beer from Jolly Pumpkin and hopefully not my last.

Draft. Aroma has the saison aroma, but also hints toward white wine as well. Appearance is a hazy gold with a frothy, white head. Taste is saison with a taste that reminds me of green grape skins. Palate is ok. Overall, a great saison. Not overpowering like most saisons.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was bottled on July 20, 2011 and I don't think it's stood up so well to the test of time. Had a nice off White head that settled right away, no lace and a clear yellow amber color. Aroma was the best part which is like green apples and yeast. Flavor was good but just in a kind of generic farmhouse /saison sort of way, nothing remarkable. Body seemed a little be a little on the thin side.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was basically a light to semi - hazy orange to bronze color. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a light lacing here and there and all over the place.
The smell had a decent light grassy lemon allowing a light pepper to invade lightly to even bring in a light lime as well. As it warmed even further, there was a light sour apple.
The taste was mainly sweet with a light lime/lemon and then the sour apple.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The aftertaste was slightly sour but yields a gentle lemon/lime to sour apple finish.
Overall, interesting saison I say. Would I have it again? Probably not due to the price.
