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!

BAM BITCHES!! This is a great brew. Light golden pour with a light white head. Very sour smell with light citrus. Taste is more mellow in the sourness then I expected but pretty sour for a saison. Very easy to drink. Not a whole lot of carbonation and a little bitterness which works for this beer.

cchubb (74) - Minneola, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Light orange pour with big Saison head but low residual carbonation. Less spicy flavors than the other commercial standards, but a nice low final gravity keeps the taste light and the taste buds awake and looking for more flavor. Tart and lemony with some nice yeasty/bready notes.

Dogbrick (9625) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2007
This beer pours a translucent orange color with a thick and fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Spotty lacing. The aroma is grassy and yeasty, and a friend mentioned that it also smelled like an opened packet of ketchup which is 100% true. Light-bodied with flavors of apple and citrus, plus yeast and spices. The finish is tart and fruity with a lingering spice character. Refreshing and good all around.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a hazy golden peach color, topped by a thick and creamy head of light tan colored foam. Great head retention and thick webby lacing. Tart and fruity aroma - with barnyard, apple cider, and pineapple. Tangy flavors include dry wheat, funky barnyard, clove, white pepper, and lemon. Medium body, gently fizzy carbonation. Tart and refreshing, with lemon, clove, and a hint of cheese in the aftertaste.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Poured a light orange color with a loose white head. Mild funk tartness, earthy spices, lemons, and a floral yeasty aroma hang around. Well-carbonated. Taste has a mild citrus tartness at the beginning and yields to a slight sour turn at the end, with a grass/spice mix in the middle. Iím loving the JP funk now and this is seriously sessionable.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a very hazy pale orange, with a thick two finger head that slowly recedes to a dense cap. The subsequent lacing completely covers the inside of my glass. Smell; starts off with solid citric aromas, with lemons and a touch of oranges, and Iím also picking up a little bit of sour apples. Some mild barnyard funk is present with a touch of vinegar and little horse blanket. Aroma wise, this pretty much falls in line with what I would expect from a Saison. Taste; the tartness and vinegar that was present in the aroma is there in the flavor, but isnít to strong. As a matter of fact they are very pleasant and fit perfectly with the lemons and oranges, and with a bit of a grassy quality. Mouthfeel/Drinkability; mouthfeel is medium bodied and very creamy, with a nice smooth natural carbonation, and the drinkability is very goo

DELICIOUS! Poured a nice golden color with a slight haze. Lots of citrus aromas going on as well as some hints of spice. Nice and sort of "earthy" smelling. Insanely effervescent. A little bit dry with a nice sour finish. Very sessionable and a pleasure to drink. I love it.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 12 oz bottle in a trade from drewbeerme - thanks! Beautiful rendition of a farmhouse, a much-loved style. With the right blend of citrus, spice, and delicious yeast, this is a fine session beer.

Bottle. Thanks to Styles. Poured a golden murkey color with a huge white frothy head. Aroma of orange and other citrus is very present. Taste of cinnamon is there with very little aroma hops at the finish.
