Golden, naturally cloudy, bottle conditioned and dry hopped for a perfectly refreshing balance of spicy malts, hops and yeast. Please enjoy our beers in good health, And look both ways when crossing the street!

From Dec 2007 I got this bottle in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John! This pours from 12oz bottle a cloudy yellow-orange with a *huge* very billowy head of foam that doesn't do a whole lot of receding. It gets so thick that I imagine I could spoon it out and it would keep its shape. I like that. The smell...hit me as soon as I popped the cap on the bottle. It's all fruity and yeasty and funky and it has notes of candy sugar and tartness. Pretty darned complex. The taste up front has a mix of sour and sweet flavour. The sour is mostly from apple, the sweet is from a mild malt presence.I'm getting a yeasty flavour now as well as a touch of funk and some peppery notes. It has a thin mouthfeel, the carbonation is high, and it finishes crisp and dry with a short but pleasing aftertaste. Overall, I find this Saison a treat to drink and quite sessionable. I'd drink it again, no problem. Thanks again, John!

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 Pours a cloudy golden with small white head. Aroma has lemon, sour apples, yeast and some good barnyard funk. Taste is sour with a short clean finish and crisp mouthfeel. Body is light but not watery. Easily drinkable and delightful, and true to Jolly Pumpkin's reputation.

Bottle, 375mL. 4.5%. #1800. Purchase ("Biere-revolution.com", FR). Home. A golden light opaque beer with a medium white foamy head ; good retention ; ok lacing. Biscuit, fruits (citrus), wild woody notes (brett aroma I guess), herbal note. Light to medium dry fresh sour, sweet note, light bitter. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, dry sour lasting finish. Overall, enjoyable !

tightslice (1436) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 30, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine in Orlando, FL. Aroma is floral, spicy yeast, fruit (maybe peaches), mild funk, some oak. Taste is dry, crisp, tangy fruit, nice underbelly of brett (but not heavy-handed), nice hoppy-ness as well. Very balanced. Classic stuff.

Sampled in Ann Arbor at their brewery. Its sour aspect OK but way too light. Sorry these notes were just for myself now I'm forced to publish them and need more characters to do so, hence this sentence ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
