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!

THIS is the champagne of beers. Clear golden body with a voluminous fluffy white head. Light white grapes, tart yeast and sugar cookie malt in the dry aroma. Tart, dry flavor. Sugary white bread malt lies beneath tart green apples, light brett and leafy hops. The flavor is crisp, refreshing and deep enough to really enjoy (unlike crisp pilseners who just have malt and hops). Here the yeast add a great third dimension.

Thanks to zathrus13 for the bottle - glowing hazt orange color, with frothy, cappucino-like head - funky, barnyardy aroma, lots of apples and lemon zest - mildly tart flavor - more barnyardy funk in the flavor, but it’s mild, befitting of the beer - light pear, apple, citrus - lingering bread, slight hops, banana - pretty nice.

Cider color to it with a nice bannana head. Aroma is bananna and spice. Body is nice and medium and balanced. Good dark fruits, bananas and spices.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 19, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Re-Rate Slightly hazy golden color, beautiful and complex nose to it. Tart ala lemons and wheat, lots of other stuff going on. Dry tart body, nice blend of yeast and malts. The bugs really make this one shine. ------- Pours a hazy golden color, big huge white soapy head. There was a "clay colored rim around the inside of the top of the bottle that made me think, then I was like, Hey this is Jolly Pumpkin. I drink on... I’m smelling the funk baby. And to be honest, I’m loving the funk. its freakin awesome. Normally I’m not a fan of funk, as many of you know. This is the funk funk’s supposed to smell like. Bring on the funk, the funkadi funk. Huge straw/fresh corn/farm/ little citrus FUNK. 9-4-8-4-17

12 oz bottle. Poured a cloudy dark yellow with a very thick fluffy head that filled half the glass. The bottle began to gush after opening for the first time ever on a 12ozer. Aroma was a little sour and also spicy. This also had some fruity notes and I also caught a glimpse of coriander. The flavor was very refreshing and this would be a great beer that may replace stouts for me in the summer months.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 12 oz. bottle via trade with OhioDad - Pours a hazy golden color with a big foamy white head. Has a spicy, grassy, and estery aroma. Flavor is kinda spicy and a little tart. Medium body. A good beer. Just not my style. Thanks Scott. <P>Re-rate - Gonna leave the numbers the same. A pretty good beer we now can get here in Arizona.

OldGrowth (2854) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Bottle, from trade with kramer17801. Great nose, tart fruity. Yeasty, doughy. Cherry, orange. Like a clove or coriander. Hazy yellowy gold color, most sediment was left in bottle due to massive foam. Foam eventually reduced down to a cap. Good lacing. Tart flavor. Like aroma. A little viney too. Medium body, light slippery mouthfeel, tart dry finish. Nice. I enjoyed it as it warmed. I don’t think I could have a bunch of these though. Still learning to appreciate these saisons.

For the first time ever, Jolly Pumpkin beers have become available locally. The Bam Bière is the first of the new arrivals to grace my home. As I popped the cap, the beer almost gushed out. A quick and careful pour saved every single drop. In the oversized wine glass, this looked like the prototypical Saison, with a hazy pale body, and a very large foamy head. The smell was typical as well, with a yeasty and doughy rustic smell mixed with a smattering of grassy and floral hops. The taste was light and refreshing with a good balance between sweet, sour, and spicy flavors. Not as funky as authentic Belgian examples, but still a very good interpretation. Mouthfeel was a bit too thin and watery for the style, considering the better examples of the style are above 6% ABV and cellarable. I would have no problems visiting this again in the middle of the summer for a change of pace from the Witbier and Pilsner rut.

aracauna (3190) - Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a tenacious white head. The aroma is fiercely phenolic with pears, orange peel and bay leaves. The body falls a bit flat compared to the flavor. Very dry, good hop bitterness and flavor that lingers, but the malt seems to be a bit of a no-show. Good beer though.
