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!
Tap @So Good in Rome. Dark ruby-copper cloudy, medium off-white foam with retention and drafts on the glass. Nose: graveyard feel of flowers ;), funky sourish a bit (+). Mouth is easy compared to ABV, charming sour, mild pepper. BRW (2877) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2017

Fad: Orange meget let diset �l. Sur duft af eddike og let krydderurt. Smagen sidder i skabet. Den eneste grund til �llen ikke er helt oppe at ringe er den lidt tynde mundfylde. Der mangler lige det sidste. AndyW68 (1578) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 29, 2017

overall 15 - not my favorite jolly pumpkin, but it's an easy sipper.

So, this has been on my wishlist for a while. Like, back when Jolly Pumpkin was fashionable. So, naturally, I was excited to try it. I’ll save the suspense - it was really good. Now, describing the aroma and flavor is kinda pointless, because it is right there in the description - rose hips, rose petals and hibiscus. All of those are prominent, as well some brett and wine. Well balances and a prefect palate. Nice stuff! slowrunner77 (12451) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Brilliant pinkish red. Aroma is floral rose and tart berry. Mildly to moderately sour, which works really well with what’s goin on here. Mellow for JP, but very nicely done. justkoehn (165) - Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Heavy lacing and light head. Beautiful red appearance. Flowery aroma. Sits lightly on the tongue with a mild spicy flowery taste. Unique and fun summer beer.

Cloudy, dark amber (almost brown) with thick beige foam, more smooth than jagged. Rich floral, peppery phenol notes with distinct lacto acid and tartness. Tart, minerally, and astringent on first taste with a smooth, slightly bitter finish. The rose hips, petals and hibiscus create a complex tart bitterness that compliments the mineral flavors. The yeast phenol gets a little lost. There is some sour apple flavors and a slight lemony tartness toward the end. The body is medium and the carbonation is soft. The finish is dry, but the middle tastes are quite fruity. Though it has the dry aspect, I would compare it to the Anchorage Love Buzz or the Long Trip.
