02.23.2012 bottle, poured on 05.30.2015. Heavy ruby with a golden white frothy head. The aroma is the Jolly Pumpkin funk, the taste of rose petals is there, but is almost cherry like. Very great with age. Just wow.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
1 pint 9 oz bottle from Mile High. This beer is a gorgeous deep red with a firm, everlasting white head. A little haze is apparent in the body. The aroma is a little funky, as expected from JP. Notes of barnyard come through with firm and balanced rose hips and hibiscus. The palate is appropriately spritzy and soft on the tongue. Man, this is a dry beer. Itís awesome. The hibiscus and rose hips are not subtle, but so naturally work with the base beer. Notes of coriander come through along with hints at straw, cheese, barnyard and lime zest. Itís pleasantly tart throughout. Another offering from JP which just reeks of craftsmanship.

On tap at Teresaís. Floral, rosy aroma. Slight malt, funky, sour, tartness with a spicy floral bite. Quite good but not overpowering. Subtly sour.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like a sour saison. Taste is heavy saison character with very mild sourness. Carbonation is way too high. Medium body and lots of foam.

A nice, funky saison. Dry with a nice floral aroma. Sweetness accentuates the tart. Picked up at the Belfry in 2015.

Sweet but must not be a fan of the roses. Has an interesting flavor, itís not my favorite.

Good saison. Spiced well and nice carbonation. Cloudy and sediments at the bottom of bottle brought lots of flavor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a "balloon" snifter. The aroma is floral and bright with secondary yeast notes and a light pepper presence with a heated honey and mild burnt sugar note appearing late. The beerís hue is a murky, opaque mustard brown topped by a creamy white head that retains a thin, dense ring and leaves a sparse lace. The taste is a balance between a medium sweet and medium sour with a medium light bitter. The beer is syrupy with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium full body. The flavor profile is toast and citrus jam with some stone fruit. It finishes with a dry floral character and a crispness that leaves an aftertaste thatís lightly grassy and astringent, but doesnít leave any strong flavor characters
