5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Here is the story; I left my house last night, going to the hospital with my wife. 4½ hours later I return with my new born son Melvin, a perfect little boy. Sitting in my couch at 1 am looking at him I need something to celebrate and find my newly arrived EYO from JP in the fridge.
It might be the situation or it might just be the beer, but this is the most perfectly balanced beer I can remember having since.....well since Orval maybe. Fruit, funk, drinkability is just perfect. It makes me think, this is the kind of beer thats the reason I’m in the beer business, the reason I started drinking craft beers to begin with. Thanks a lot JP and cheers to my new son Melvin! I will take you to Dexter when you are old enough so that you can experience maybe the greatest brewery in the world for yourself!

Reddish pink. Nose of tangy funk, lemon, and floral spice. Flavor lightly tart and mild fruity with noticeable rose character. Some citrus. Clean. Light sour plus rose gives raspberry like character.

Pours hazy reddish pink with a large pink foam. Smells kind of floral with a subtle funky undertone. Taste is slightly funky, slightly tart, a little floral. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Jolly Pumpkin Baudelaire Biere iO Saison finishes with a faint, lingering tartness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazed plum meat color. Foamy white head. Sour aroma with oak notes. Flavor is sour fruit in oak. I cannot detect all the botanicals in flavor, only in color from the "beer"’s appearance. Finishes very bitter.... not seeing the attraction here to real people.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky, peach-brown in color with a thick frothy head which I swear gives off a pinkish hue atop the beer below. Sour fruit aroma, plenty of funk, hay. Very smooth initially with a bite towards the finish. Berries throughout with sour bananas and a pleasant acidity. Great, but not elite.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 6.8%. Violent gusher. Very citric aroma, lactic and quite funky. Red wine notes, very complex. Hazy amber colour. Small off-white head. The flavour is not as extreme as the aroma, but nice and powerful. There is a good acid, slightly sharp, but not extreme. Some funk and notes of red vinaigre. Fruity sourness. Not what I would call a saison, more like a sour, but good nonetheless.

Hazy light amber color with high white head. Aroma of cherry, fruit. Cherry flauvour, sour taste. Sourish finish. Ok, but too fruity to my taste.
