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!

Pours a cloudy orange color with a huge sudsy white head. Noticeable spice in the aroma along with a faint hint of floral hops. Interesting flavor. Full of spices with some pleasant fruity banana like flavors and a nice citrusy finish. Extremely fizzy stuff. Very enjoyable stuff.

12 oz bottle courtesy of OhioDad. Cloudy orange-yellow beer, massive pillowy white head that grew out of my goblet like some sort of alien life form. Aroma of leather, horseblanket, orange pith, cologne with earthy/woody hop aroma and some heavy cologne aromatics as well. Flavour is light and effervescent. Bone dry but also a bit disappontingly thin. Flavour is more subtle than the aroma would suggest. Earthy malt, soft leathery Brett character and some soft spicy notes. Beautiful aroma but the flavour needs a bit of a kick in the pants. Very tasty nonetheless.

Pours a hazy light gold into a tulip. Lasting fluffy white micro head. Orange aspergum aromas. Fizzy and dry with bitter fruit aspirin flavors and a lasting bitter finish.

jason (1677) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2008 bottle. Nice spicy aroma, strong belgian yeast. The pour was like a flashback of Chouffe, bubbled up like soap suds. As it settled the foam formed a mountain that lasted awhile. Good spicy taste that is well balanced. Very smooth. Good saison.

sloth (2464) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2006
A massive white head, chunky, fluffy and lasting, damn near rocky. Yeasty notes kicking around as i enjoy the pours visuals. Hazy, gold body that really gets yer attention. Lacing that dazzles and boggles! Nose is ultra spicey, lemony, zesty and herbacious, light notes of lavender? Body is light, co2 is big, fizzy, dancing and groovy on the tongue. Spicey, yeasty flavors, citrus, lemon and lightly bready malts. Lightly phenolic, mildly acidic and pleasently fruity. Dry spicey finish. A big, small beer @ 4.5% alcohol,,,, BAM!

ABUSEDGOAT (2351) - California, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Thanks to kmweaver for this one. Cloudy orange with a large head, some gushing, blah lacing. Aroma is heavy on oranges and lemons. Lesser notes of grass and other spices. Brett and oak also make an appearance here. Somewhat watery mouthfeel. Very complex, and certainly an interesting saison. However, the flavors put together were ’only’ good but not great.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Cloudy, golden/amber appearance with a large, dense head and nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, musty, tart fruit, earthy; just a great mix that shows great depth. Flavors meld beautifully, from the spicy, fruity, mildly sour to the dry, hoppy, vinous, woodsy nuances. Subtle, complex, intriguing, thoroughly enjoyable.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2006
I poured with extreme caution, but I got about 2/3 head and a 1/3 of beer. Note to other drinkers, let the beer standstill for about five minutes then fill the glass the rest of the way. Perhaps, placing this beer in the freezer for about 15 minutes might tame the carbonation. The nose is quite spicy, with a mild hint of cinnamon and coriander. The palate is bone dry and lightly acidic. I really dig this beers dryness, it is refreshing to have a beer that it is not so sweet. Jolly Pumpkin rocks again.
