COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Draught at 2006 MBG Summer Festival. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a small lasting white head. Sweet and sour aroma with lots of spices and fruit -- nice! Flavourís also fruity and spicy along with some citrus hops, malt and funky yeast. Bodyís a tad thin. Saisons are not one of my favourite styles but I quite enjoyed this one.

Michigan Brewers Festival 2006. Golden yellow with a small white head. Sweet orange and malt in the aroma and briefly imagined honey notes. Flavour is a touch dry, some orange citrus and mild hops. Average palate. 7+/3/7+/3/15-16

Attractive cloudy brass color with a HUGE sudsy sno-white head that receded slowly while shrinking from the sides of the glass leaving a full coat of sticky, intricate lace. Aroma included fruity floral hops, with orange, orange blossoms, tangerine and pineapple, spring meadow, bay rum and yeast. Flavor was full-on bitter grapefruit hops, with orange and lemon-lime, strawberry, juicy fruit gum, tropical spice and medicinal herbs, with a hint of rum and rum bitters. A bit of sour yeastiness. Mouthfeel nicely effervescent and cleansing.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Pours a huge fluffy head, well retained. Golden yellow, translucent, bright and sunny, quality lacing, with a head that replenishes itself with a bit of twirling around. Nice. Tart, sour, funky nose, with a twist of lemon. Tartness hits the tongue first and foremost, citrus and orange play out in the middle, leading up to a malty finish (even a bit of vanilla in there). Crisp and delicious. Update: Honestly, I think about this beer maybe once a day, sometimes more depending on the temperature. Itís such a fantastic, refreshing summer beer.

This beer smells amazing. A swirling maelstom of spice and citrus. Doesnít taste as amazing as it smells, but itís still damn good.

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a creamy bright white head. Lots of musty farm house aromas. Lemon/lime and spice as well. Flavor is well balanced will some horse blaket, oranges, maybe nutmeg(?). Maybe even some brett charaacter. Compementary bitterness to boot. Fizzy carbonation. A real joy to drink. Thanks to Beerdrenched for the hook up. I sure with could have joined you at the brewery.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Smells like oranges and spices. Looks nice, with a massive head. Super bubbly, almost champagne like. Tastes really citrusy with lots of spicy, peppery things going on. This Jolly pumpkin brewery really likes their pepper, thatís for sure. Overall, a great summer beverage.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Citrusy, musty aroma. OK, Lots of suds here on another bottle conditioned ale. Unfiltered, light oragne-honey colored in apprearance with increadable bubble production. Have to let this one settle down before I get the first swallow. Waiting. Waiting... BIG foam collapsing in to the center of the glass. Canít wait any longer. Flavor is less obvious than anticipated. Citrusy taste makes a bee line for your gullet. No real taste in the front of your mouth. This bier is very easy drinking and light on your palate. Second pour. Here comes the foam again. Gotta watch what I say about this bier since I live next door to Dexter, Michigan, (Captain - Canít wait to try your craft brews). This bier takes you back to thoes easy summer leasure moments like a good read from a great novel on your favorite lounge chair out on the deck.

Aroma is spicey, with wheat and malt, hazy orange/yellow, tiny long lasting white head. Soft wheat taste, corriander, some yeast too. Well balanced, intriguing mouthfeel. Fine offering! Thank You mds.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours pale golden with a decent sized fizzy head. Aroma of belgian style spice, citrus, floral notes, and yeast. The flavor is spicey, carbonated, floral, slight bitter hoppiness. Good body, good brew.
