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!

Bottle pours straw blonde. Nice, earthy, malty character to this one. Very nice and drinkable.. Nutty finish. Very good.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2006
Hazy pale golden with a nicely-lacing white head. Funky horseblanket earthy green spiced aroma has a dry toasty pale biscuity malty presence with lots of tartness. Starts smooth and lightly tart, but nowhere near as much as the aroma implied, along with some cheesiness. Finishes smooth, dry and lightly earthy. Very drinkable with nice complexities, which makes this a good session beer.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is primarily of citrus, but also with light notes of coriander. The flavor is acidic with primary notes of citrus, but also light spicy notes, where coriander is most dominant.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
Funky farmhouse character over peach, apricot fruitiness, mild sugary candy, and peppery brett notes in the alluring aroma. Opaque golden body evokes sunrise with just a blush of orange. Decent white head recedes to cover with some very nice lacing. Vanilla and oak are very prominent along with leafy, soapy, floral, jasmin, herbal hops and peppery brett. Malts are subdued. Dry, sharp body with fine bubbled, lightly prickly carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Siroy.

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 (3342) - 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.
