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.

onceblind (6999) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Murky dark copper with a thin bone white cap of foam. Big earthy and tart berries on the nose with a stern barrel tartness and wild semisweet red berry juiciness. Lovely smooth flavor that’s not too tart, while still being a little funky and red-berry-juicy. Slightly Woody but mostly red juicy and just a little tart.

glennmastrange (2647) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around with hay and straw for the malt, grass and lemon for the hops, barnyard for the yeast, with notes of vinegar, flowers and unripe green apple skin. Head is large, frothy, pinkish off-white, with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky pink, and muddies up brown on the last pour. Flavor starts moderately acidic and a touch sour, and finishes lightly acidic and just a scant bitter. Palate is light, watery with a lively carbonation and a slightly dry finish. This Saison is awesome! Makes my mouth water while I’m smelling it before I sip it, and when I did I had to stop myself from guzzling it.
