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!

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2007 Bottle. Kicked off NachlamSie and I’s Thursday tasting. Good thing too, this beer is made of nuances and subtleties that would have been lost after a stronger beer. Anyhow, pours hazy orange/gold with some solid floaties that sink to the bottom quickly. The aroma is spicy and warm, with sweet fruity notes coming through as well. Flavor is a nice tart lemon followed by the warm spicy bready finish, throughout, it is mild, but enjoyable.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2007 Bottle from Allaboutstout. Thanks Steve! Pours hazy golden amber with torrent carbonation bubbles. Nice super tight foamy white head that coats the glass. Smell of sour apples, pear, spices, and lemon zest. Medium light mouthfeel and fine carbonation. Initial flavor is sweet, that transitions to a mild tart middle, with notes of yeast, cider, honey, and apples. Finish is semi dry, with some spiciness (clove) and lingering dustiness. Thirst quenching. This beer is soft on the palate while still coming across with complexity and flavor. Very well done beer.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Bottle from drewbeerme. Light copper and somewhat on the murky side. Frothy white head that threatens to overflow the glass but decides last second to retreat. Very spicy saison aroma with an earthy note. High carbonation. Subtle and pleasant with some apple and grape flavors. Slightly tart. Brilliant blend of over-the-top and subtle. I love this beer for being what it is and not trying to over sell or over-do.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Poured from bottle, murky golden color, huge head taht lasted a while...Some carbonation in glass, left some great lacing...Smelled to me of sweet grass and apples. I really wanted to like this beer, but I started with a darker beer and that might have been the problem here. This one ended up tasting a little watery to me...Definitely tasted organge and lemons, apples, very cider like...With a hoppy finish. It was good, just a bit weak for me...

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Beer pours moderately cloudy with light sediment being honey in color with a totally retained, creamy egg white head. Nose is subtle with notes of light flowers, light dust, light spices, apples, and yeast. Flavor is likewise subtle; very light fruit flavors, a really nice earthy yeastiness, a restrained chalkiness, also what I can only call flower essence. Mouthfeel is exceptional; elegantely soft with perfect carbonation. Palate is not a huge factor, typically, but in this case it helps elevate the beer to a higher plateau.

Ibrew2or3 (8008) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2007
On tap at Florida Brewers Guild Fest 2007. Hazy straw pour with bright white head. Sweet fruit candy-like aroma that seems sort of berry like. Also there’s a yeast spice and lemon note. The flavor has a nice pale maltiness mixed seamlessly with hints of mild sourness. Beyond midway I get lemon citrus notes too. I can see drinking this as a premium tasty lawnmower brew.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Aroma of hops and spices. Pour is a cloudy orange with a nice white head and good lacing. Flavors of citrus, light fruit, spice, hops, and a little sourness. A nice easy drinking saison.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2007
this beer was very weak. It had tones of cloves and hops but had a very watery mouthfeel. This was my first tasting of the ’Jolly’ brand and I must say it doesn’t make me look forward to trying anymore.
