Farmhouse funk, citrus and spice comprise the nose while a hazy yellow pour with a quickly dissipating voluminous white head provides abundant lacing. The taste is short, spicy, citrus and crisp. Light body and crisp carbonation. Dry finish. Overall, refreshing, crisp, and slightly hoppy.

"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.
