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!

Iím starting to pick up on what a JP beer tastes like, although their signature is almost ideal for this style!!!. They all have that sour/citrus thing going on in at least the background, if not at the forefront of the beer. Poured a deep and cloudy amber color with a humungous head (hard to pour) and lots of carbonation to display. Lacing was nice and Belgian-ringed in appearance. The aroma was funky wheat-like with peppers and some sort of spice, almost like the coriander/cacao thing detected in the Maracaibo. Flavor picked up all of the aroma qualities with some malt depth and a mildly bitter finish. Citrus was also more predominant in the flavor than it was in the aroma. Mouthfeel was moderate to heavy with plenty of carbonation to stimulate those buds. A pretty nice example of the style and certainly a great beer at only 4.5%ABV.

Beautiful pale golden nectar, quite hazy. Strong carbonation that leads to a dense everlasting head. Amazing lacing left behind on the glass. The hops smell a little cheesy, could be aged. Good mouthfeel, with a nice spicy finish. A very pleasant saison.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Pours out orange colored with a massive head on it. Once it settled, has a nice smell of lemons and flowers. Tastes sweet, has a little sour funky kick to it, and for the most part it goes down pretty easy. I was expecting this to be a little better than it was, given all the recent hype that this brewery has gotten. This beer is good, but does not live up to all the talk its generated. 7 / 2 / 7 / 3 / 14

bottle that Chris sent me to rerate. Thank god. This one was alot better and lived up to the beer that I would expect coming from this brewery. Golden color, not a lot of head. Some sour notes in the smell and taste. Refreshing, spicy, lemon notes. Good shit really, much better than the other bottle I had. I think this one is alot fresher. Thanks for the re-rate chris!

Amen. Bought a 6 Pack of this and it was definately enjoyed. Would have preferred if the bottles didnít gush, but it seems to come with the territory for farmhouse ales. I enjoyed the flavor and it was authentic.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2011 12 Oz Bottle. Aroma subdued by temperature. Iím really only getting straight Brett. Sour lemons, light trees of paradise, a hint of rosemary toast and fragrant lilac. Oaky sourness comes through as gingered vinegar and touches of sweet persimmons. Spiced, with vague light Sri Lanka fare. Pour is a clouded peach, with fringes of supple golds and a rocky growing head of off-white. Flavor is interesting and complex. It has edges of Brett, but those fade away for the most part and donít reappear until the backend and smack. In between is a light washing fluid of coarse salted oats and wheat, with juniper berries, italian seasonings rubbed into veal flank and a drop of benedictine. Highly effervescent and surprisingly hoppy, with a real bite of parchment paper and cotton candy on the finish. Almost a little over the top. This doesnít have the level of drinkability that it should. Styrian creates interesting interaction with Brett fusels in the smack. Overall, a nice extremely light saison, with an interesting twist from the Brett, but loses necessary drinkability in the hop additions. Interesting experience for sure. Thanks Andy!

Casual re-rates. This stuff is impressive. The nose is strong with funk, hops, and wheat and the flavor just down right delicious. Tart, grassy, and fresh with great hop character. A fantastic drinker. Thanks Sean for keeping me in this beer.

Hazy gold with large thick firm crown. Soapy, citric hoppy aroma. Mild sweetness below with flowery aromatic top. Medium bodied with strong carbonation, citric grape like flavours with dry hoppy character. Long lasting bitterness.

Another big-bubbled head with a cloudy dark golden body. The carbonation isnít too bad, which I expected it to be by its appearance. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Slightly sweet finish, although the flavor isnít sweet itself. Very full of citrus flavors, and the wild yeast qualtiy is strong. A pleasant, herbal qualtiy too. Very smooth, and overall good.

shrubber85 (9274) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle. Musty, barnyard, lemon and pepper aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow color with moderate head. Musty hay flavor - that nice old, dusty flavor that you get from great saisons. High acidic bite. My first foray into Jolly Pumpkin but definitely not my last - comparable to Fantome - a great beer.

This one was pretty good. A yellow appearance. The flavor was quite sour and funky with a strong lemon presence. This one was extremely carbonated as well. A dusty mouthfeel. Overall it was good.
