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: AUG 28, 2006 Pours a huge fluffy head, well retained. Golden yellow, translucent, bright and sunny, quality lacing, with a head that replenishes itself with a bit of twirling around. Nice. Tart, sour, funky nose, with a twist of lemon. Tartness hits the tongue first and foremost, citrus and orange play out in the middle, leading up to a malty finish (even a bit of vanilla in there). Crisp and delicious. Update: Honestly, I think about this beer maybe once a day, sometimes more depending on the temperature. Itís such a fantastic, refreshing summer beer.

This beer smells amazing. A swirling maelstom of spice and citrus. Doesnít taste as amazing as it smells, but itís still damn good.

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a creamy bright white head. Lots of musty farm house aromas. Lemon/lime and spice as well. Flavor is well balanced will some horse blaket, oranges, maybe nutmeg(?). Maybe even some brett charaacter. Compementary bitterness to boot. Fizzy carbonation. A real joy to drink. Thanks to Beerdrenched for the hook up. I sure with could have joined you at the brewery.

Smells like oranges and spices. Looks nice, with a massive head. Super bubbly, almost champagne like. Tastes really citrusy with lots of spicy, peppery things going on. This Jolly pumpkin brewery really likes their pepper, thatís for sure. Overall, a great summer beverage.

Citrusy, musty aroma. OK, Lots of suds here on another bottle conditioned ale. Unfiltered, light oragne-honey colored in apprearance with increadable bubble production. Have to let this one settle down before I get the first swallow. Waiting. Waiting... BIG foam collapsing in to the center of the glass. Canít wait any longer. Flavor is less obvious than anticipated. Citrusy taste makes a bee line for your gullet. No real taste in the front of your mouth. This bier is very easy drinking and light on your palate. Second pour. Here comes the foam again. Gotta watch what I say about this bier since I live next door to Dexter, Michigan, (Captain - Canít wait to try your craft brews). This bier takes you back to thoes easy summer leasure moments like a good read from a great novel on your favorite lounge chair out on the deck.

Aroma is spicey, with wheat and malt, hazy orange/yellow, tiny long lasting white head. Soft wheat taste, corriander, some yeast too. Well balanced, intriguing mouthfeel. Fine offering! Thank You mds.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours pale golden with a decent sized fizzy head. Aroma of belgian style spice, citrus, floral notes, and yeast. The flavor is spicey, carbonated, floral, slight bitter hoppiness. Good body, good brew.

lamas (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Bottle. A bit of a gusher. Pours a dull gold with a HUGE off-white meringue-like head. The aroma is fairly typical of the style - slightly musty with some tangy citrus fruits and spices. Fairly bland taste-wise. Medium to thin-bodied. Crisp. Malty and wheaty. Sour apples and lemons with some spiciness throughout. Finishes quite dry.

heykevin (1274) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Lightly hazed golden. Voluminous head. Fantastically complex aroma. iím getting orangey rind-y hops (styrians?) some earthier ones as well. Wild spicy roller coaster of yeast spiciness. Touch of roses as well as a hint of lactic sourness. Medium-light bodied (quite full for its dryness) and as I just stated, dry. Wildly complex. Great full hoppy flavor. THis is a great beer at any strength and a fantastic one at its strength. My only drawback is the hint of lactic acid in the finish, but Iím really nitpicking here, this is fantastic.

Poured a creamy off white with a huge head. Smelled a bit of cloves. Decent farmhouse ale flavor at first, but the finish was dry and a little too bitter. Not a pleasant hoppy bitter....more like chewing on the rind of a grapefruit.
