mathieuc (2063) - Québec, Quebec, - JAN 24, 2013
Huge gusher upon opening, hopefully there was some left to be split 2-way. Pours murky brown with a nice and creamy white head. Smell is semi-funky with a hint of sourness detected. Nothing I could clearly point out as coming from the rose or hibiscus but still a bit of perfume here and there. Taste is mildly tart and fruity. Flavors are reminescent of La Roja but maybe a little subdued. A really nice saison still, a mighty fine one I would say!

Dogbrick (9325) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
This beer is a bright reddish-orange color with a thick white head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, florals and yeast. Medium body with flavors of fruity yeast, hibiscus and biscuit malt. The finish is floral and fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

ttoadee (919) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Cloudy amber pour, explosive white head. Nose is stone fruit & yeast. Bitter. Middle is mild leather, sour fruit, and a floral hint. Finish is dry and big. Nice.

solidfunk (5155) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Jolly pumpkin citrus bretta and some crackery finish. Pours hazy light brown. Light bitter finish. Grass and some resin. Nice. Tap at Churchkey.

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.

NachlamSie (2939) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2015
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. It’s 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. It’s pleasantly tart throughout. Another offering from JP which just reeks of craftsmanship.

stangger (603) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2015
On tap at Teresa’s. Floral, rosy aroma. Slight malt, funky, sour, tartness with a spicy floral bite. Quite good but not overpowering. Subtly sour.

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2015
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.

ads135 (3357) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - APR 24, 2015
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, it’s not my favorite.

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