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!

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Pours golden and slightly cloudy with an amazing white head. Also large bubbles form on the side of the glass. Aromas of citrus and spice (cardamom?), maybe some banana along with wheat. In the mouth is pumelling carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Flavor is slightly sour/tart, very dry. Slightly bitter at the end, but lingering sourness more than bitter. For me the sourness kind of destroyed my enjoyment of the beer, as it lingered and lingered on the sides of my tongue, reminding me slightly of stomach acid. That was hard to get past.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2006
Hazy, golden body with a huge, slowly diminishing off-white head. A soft, fruity nose of mango, banana, light oranges, some dry biscuits, some funky Brett elements of barnyard and cobwebs, pungent, robust Noble hops and some tropical fruit esters. The body is light and crisp, drying on the tongue and refreshing as all get out. The flavor shows the fruit, layered biscuit and pale malts and the effects of the Brett. The finish shows off the crisp hops, leaving a bit of bitterness and a nice dry finish. This is a tasty treat and something I would drink often, if it were only more available.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 20, 2006
12oz. bottle. Cloudy golden orange with a small fluffy white head. Slight barnyard and tart aromas with a mild spiciness. Astringent herbal hoppiness melds well with a tart pantina. Hints of fruit and residual funkiness in the finish. Mouthfeel is light, very dry.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2006
Thanks Styles! The beer pours to a clean golden body with a huge fluffy white head. Nice carbonated looking body. Insane lacing and strong peaks in the head. It stands up better than most people’s meringue. The aroma is lemon zest, orange zest, pineapple juice, light wheat, pears, subtle spices. Smells wonderful. The flavor is pineapple juice, pears, sour wheat, brett. Much better as a sum of the parts. The palate is medium bodied, dry, tart, refreshing.

On Tap: Another good offering from Jolly Pumpkin. I had it with a Turkey Reuben, not a bad paring. Dark carmel color. Moderate carbonation. Slight yeastiness. Fruit notes.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2006
Loud PSSHH upon cracking the cap; was afraid I’d have a gusher. It settled down and poured a hazy yellowish amber color. Thick fizzy lingering head. Aroma has yeasty fruit (orange-pineapple juice), spice, funky wheat. Initial taste is light, tart fruit with a dry yeasty finish. Very "summer" feeling. Delicately balanced, and a great drink but an initial shock to the tastebuds that wanted something bigger.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 Gold/bronze color with a huge fluffy beige head. Aroma of spices and yeast. Flavor of spices and tart fruit.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear pale gold in color with a nice white fluffy head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Tart. Apple notes. Lemony, yeasty and spicey flavor. Crisp tasting. Finish is hoppy. Refreshing. Enjoyable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bottle. Cider gold with a bubbly, white head, and lacing. Aroma is sweet and sour apple and grape. Taste is barnyard and lemon with a sweet streak and a refreshing carbonation. Perfect in the abv and just a delight to savor. My favorite JP beer in a while.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 7, 2006
Nose of pears, spice, and pepper; in addition, something interesting that I can put a face on. Pours a sparkling hazy golden straw. The large white rocky head is wispy with exceptional retention. O how I love big hunks o’lace sticking to the side of my glass. The toasty character reminds me initially of a dortmunder/helles somewhat, but with more acidity. This offering is an example of how balanced a brew can be. Subtle and clever. The medium body is very lively and creamy.
