juiceisloose (1477) - Windermere, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2012
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.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PanMarek (423) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2017
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.
