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!

Kickin off the weekend right. Hazy gold, rocky white head (everlasting lace). Really nice typical JP nose of funky lemon, soft farmyard notes, hints of ginger, oak, and a very faint touch of bourbon (really worked for that aroma). Flavor notes were much of the same with more lemon snap, spice, with touches of oak and farmyard. A slight hop bitterness pulls this all together in the end for near perfect balance. Light to medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, soft funky, drying lemony finish. A great summer session brew without a doubt....

Reminds me of Hair of the Dog Ruth. The appearance of this beer is world class. Dark, cloudy gold with large pieces of brown sediment and a ginormous white head that lasts a very long time. Strange yeasty, funk aroma. Not quite horseblanket, but it almost smells like gin without the alcohol. Very light hops in the aroma as well. This is a dry beer. There is some lambic like strangeness in the flavor that works very well. Just a touch of lightly bitter hops. Finish is very dry with aged bitter cheese like Saint Nectaire.

Pleasant little fella, great sour cider corianderhop aroma, hazy gold beer with big sudsy white head. Funky apple cider and hops skank. sour, sweet, light palate, bings to mind a light version of barelly-bacterial beers.

Fine wheat color with a big frothy head. Sweet yeasty aroma, spicy almost has a mustard like aroma. Hoppy and spicy in the flavor. Acidic, keep tasting that mustard. Not very smooth on the palate, goes down harsh like a cheap whiskey. Half to give another bottle a try later.

Pours with a tall, pillowy white head over a hazy gold body. Big perfume aroma comes easily of lemon zest and ginger. Spritzy mouthfeel, almost gassy but light. Soft tartness with a balanced underlying sweetness. Try this if you like witbeers. Thanks to Dough77 for sending this one.

Sweet and spicy aroma with some medicinal scent as well. Flavor was mild spice, raisen, brown sugar, and a hint of medicine, but not in a offensive way. this was a good light, and refreshing brew. I wish I would have picked up more.

Pour is hazey golden yellow with a nice dense off white head...smellis citrus, funk, some hops as it warms...taste is sweet and tart at first, with some slighty bitter funk coming on at the end, where the bitter builds...very fizzy mouthfeel....what a tremendous brewery.

12 oz. Bollte; Aroma was earthly and spicey. Cloudy golden color with big white foamy head. Good lacing also. Mixture of spices and citric flavors along with some bitter made this a decent beer. Refreshing on the palate. Good Brew.

I’m 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.
