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!

Very light cloudy gold appearance. The aroma is of yeast and light grapes and lemon. Palate is medium with high carbonation. The taste is very lemony and slightly sour. Light yeast and spices can be faintly detected in the finish.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Pours a hazy straw color with a small fizzy white head and little lacing. Aroma is a touch sour and semi sweet malts with some grassiness / hay and a delicate fruitiness. Tastes of lightly sweet malts with a nice sour balance, spice, and a light dry citrus hop finish. Body is light to medium with an effervescent carbonation.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Minor gush upon opening. Pours a huge, spumous white head with a deep-golden straw body. Great refined nose with notes of grapefruit, pepper, flowers, brett, and fresh grain. Nice yeast signatures in the flavor with moderate tartness and some drying, herbal bitterness. Somewhat numbing due to the dryness. Light bodied, but palatable. Very nice, crisp, dry, and tantalizing all around. A great little table beer with lots of subtleties. This is the real deal.

(Bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=2 target=blank>kramer17801), thanks Jason!, cellared for 6 mos. after trade) Pretty nice, reminded me of an Abbey Trippel but without the alcohol...Pour is cloudy amber with about two fingers of soft bubbly white head that recedes to about 1/8". Aroma is slightly sour citrus, yeast and candy malt. Mouthfeel soft and light. Flavor is mostly the slightly sour lemony citrus along with some yeastiness. A little plainer than I expected.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Pours a light straw gold, haze, and a very fluffy sticky white head. Aroma is initially straight brett, funky, farmhouse, lemony and slightly sour with a lime finish and even some salty hints. Light flavor and probalby a very very low FG- lemony salty, similar in flavor to a leipziger gose. Light funk, citrus, fresh hay, lightly phenolic. Body and finish are both light and bone dry. Great infected saison- stars out great, but finishes a bit weak. Might be better if it was amped up a bit in abv and if the FG wasnt so low. Nice though.

milewide (1628) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 Cloudy yellow color. Sour with no malt sweetness. Some hops---but mostly yeast flavor. Very refreshing! Most flavor for 4.5% ABV of any beer I have tried.

carlitoguevara (3) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2006 does not count
a sour yeasty smell yeilds to a explosion of sour fruit notes balanced against a hearty backbone of brett

TomDecapolis (4579) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a large foamy white head...this was a gusher...of course it was...it was a Jolly Pumpkin :) Head laced and sustained. Aroma of citrus, green apple, barnyard, yeast, brett and some tart/sourness. Really loved the aroma on this one. Flavor of tart apples, yeast, various spices dry and bready. When a brewery makes this as their "session" beer you know the brewery has to be good.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2006
12 oz bottle via kramer17801(thanks!). Pours an almost clear golden blonDe. Large foamy white head. Tons and tons of tiny bubbles rush to the top of the pilsner glass. Nose is fruity/spicey of wheat, bannanna, peaches, and perhaps some brett yeast? Flavor is the same with a dry sour/tart fizzy finish. A bit overcarbonated as well. Don’t really care for this one.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2006
One of the best aromas I’ve ever smelled. A perfect marraige of fruity saison esters, funky brett, and smooth oak. Flavor is funkier than the aroma, very dry, brett, seltzer characteristics. Slight lemon, but mostly funk. Pour is a very pretty dark yellow/orange with a massive, lacing, rocky and firm head. This is an amazing beer, hopefully soon I’ll be able to buy it locally. The oak adds a glorious layer to the aroma and the flavor that really throws this saison to new heights.
