750 ml bottle. This one pours a cloudy, deep burnt orange color and topped by a tall, fluffy head of dense white foam that coats the glass with thick rings of lace. The aroma is very floral with notes of rose petals and hips, hibiscus flowers, and earthy spices. The signature Jolly Pumpkin barrel funk comes through with some peppery spice, old wood, and dry brett all atop a dry, doughy bread malt base. The flavor follows suit with the dry bready malt and some caramel sweetness serve as the back drop to the earthy spices, bretty oak, floral hops, and flowery rose petals and hibiscus. The palate sports a substantial body with tingly carbonation and a nice dry mouthfeel on the crisp finish. This is very different beer with all the floral components, but I’m just not a huge fan of the big floral components in beer. Even still it is a very well done beer. Another solid saison from the guys at Jolly Pumpkin.

jeremyh70 (587) - Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2014
A hazy rose tinted copper color with a off white head with a pink tinge. Nice head retention and lacing. Aroma is a bit tart with light fruit and floral flavors. Taste is light fruit with mild tartness. Some grape skin and a gentle floral bitterness at the end. A bit of woodiness. Very dry finish. Watery mouthfeel with a thin body and moderate carbonation. Nicely blended flavors and very easy drinking.

2014 bottle to a snifter. Pours a rosey copper color with a persistent, fizzy white head. Aroma is apple and tart cherry. Taste has almost no tartness. Flowery and a little woody with a little grape. Very dry with a flowery bitterness. Watery, carbonated mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jahshuwuh (304) - USA - APR 13, 2014
A rose tinted brown with finger of white bubbly head. Smells of sweet flower, apple, pear, funk, barnyard. A slight tart at first with some fruit like sweetness, some floral notes, dry. A little woodiness and a tea like taste at the end and the slight funkiness of a saison. Not bad but floral notes don't mesh perfectly the tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 12, 2014
750 ml bottle. We got a gusher!! About 8 oz. ended up on the table and floor. Hazy pink color, with massive head retention. Aroma is all flowers and roast petals. Soap.

Flavor shows a sickly amount of hibiscus, rose petals, subtle barrel notes and old Belgian yeast. Light body with a huge lively mouthfeel due to the over carbonation/ infection. Perhaps if you like drinking dead flowers, you will really enjoy this beer. Entirely to much dead flowers.

Habanero (2168) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of brett, yeast, wood and fruity notes and mild phenolic. Sweet/sour flavor that ends up dry and acidic. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice and tasty Saison.

Blood orange color with 3 finger head. Nose of sour tropical fruit. Taste has grapefruit, orange, light malts, white wine, slightly sour grapes. Finishes with a grapefruit bitter kick, dry and quick. Refreshing.

Batch 58 Bottled 05-16-2013. Not going to lie this bottle basically exploded with foam when opened, and it didn't stop foaming for about 5 minutes while pouring. I think the excessive foaming caused a but of an issue with the taste. This ale smells beautiful with rose notes and a bit of funk. The taste was flat but nice biscuity roses flavors. Maybe something was up with batch, but it has the feel of a potentially great saison just flat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark orange with a huge heag that is gone rather quickly. Not sure my palate can detect rose bud or hibiscus but regardless it is delicous.
