This delicious farmhouse ale is named for our Jack Russell, who struck by a car, bounced back in fine tenacious Jack Russell fashion, and is brewed for those of us who knocked down, have picked up, dusted off and carried on undaunted. 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!

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Cloudy, golden/amber appearance with a large, dense head and nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, musty, tart fruit, earthy; just a great mix that shows great depth. Flavors meld beautifully, from the spicy, fruity, mildly sour to the dry, hoppy, vinous, woodsy nuances. Subtle, complex, intriguing, thoroughly enjoyable.

I poured with extreme caution, but I got about 2/3 head and a 1/3 of beer. Note to other drinkers, let the beer standstill for about five minutes then fill the glass the rest of the way. Perhaps, placing this beer in the freezer for about 15 minutes might tame the carbonation. The nose is quite spicy, with a mild hint of cinnamon and coriander. The palate is bone dry and lightly acidic. I really dig this beers dryness, it is refreshing to have a beer that it is not so sweet. Jolly Pumpkin rocks again.

Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Fluffy off white head. Sweet, earty, light fruity and sour aroma. Flavour is citric and sour. Quite dry and fruity with some earthy notes. Very drinkable and pleasant. Medium bodied. Ends on a refreshing sour note wiht a light bitterness lingering underneath. A big thank you goes to Mullman for this fine little beer.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Very large white head upon pour from bottle. A slightly cloudy golden color. Smells of a lot of spice with hints of floral smells. Yeasty smell. Taste is very similar. Tasted a bit of hoppiness to this one with some spices I could not place. The yeast smell was also noticeable in the taste which added a bit of a sweeter flavor, but left something to be desired. Overall, a pretty nice, but not over the top, beer.

bb (8557) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Bottle. Golden amber beer with a huge whitish head. Spicy aroma with pepper, yeast, and a slight tartness. Tart/lemony flavor with yeast and earthiness. Lingering tart lemon fades to earthiness. High carbonation. Lacks complexity - just thought the tartness didn’t add anything.

Must have forgotten to rate this one. I received the first six pack out of the grocery I frequent. But it took me awhile to get used to its skunky flavor. The sourness is there, but you really have to let the bottles sit awhile. Take a few sips. Leave the glass. Take a few more. Savor the tastes. They grow on you.

From 12oz shared with Immy. Pours a golden yellow with white foamy head. Nose is sweet peaches, tart and spices. Flavor has tart fruits, a little sour and some bitter lemon. Highly carbonated palate.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2007 Massive thanks to Beerdrenched for picking this beauty up for me. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma is smooth and fruity with a good amount of spice and tangy sourness. Medium / light body. Starts with dry nectar fruit and some earthiness, spiciness, coriander and hops. Then lots of carbonation takes over the palate. After than there is lots of spice (mainly hop spice) and a good amount of earthiness in the finish. Very nice saison. I with this Jolly Pumpkin beer was available in my area - pity. (8/3/7/3/16)

Rerate notes: After having several bottles this has grown to be one of my faves for a lower alcohol beer. There is a lot of pleasing wild yeast, oak and overall funkiness that isn’t found in many reasonably priced beers. The amount of flavor packed in this is fantastic. This is a consistently great beer by a consistently great brewery.
