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!

Typical Saison style, with a thick white frothy head and an abundance of carbonation. Very malty and a pinch of hop. A graet color, but not a fan of saisons. The palate is thin and the finish hase a bit of fruitiness to it, maybe apples. My favorite part was the aroma, very strong, withmore hop aroma than taste. My first JP.

My first saison and what a door it opened. This is a unique and different type of beer. I love dogs so the story of the Jack Russell made me think about my own dog who has bone cancer and loves beer as much as I do. The pour was a carbonated gold with a huge half glass head that painted the glass. The aroma was like a Belgian. Spicy and yeast. The taste was very different. Spicy, sour and hoppy. Very dry and very good. My eyes are opened!

hotstuff (4802) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle conditioned. Huge white fizzy and then frothy head that was mostly lasting, minimal lacing, fizzy carbonation, transparent on the first pour and cloudy on the second pour, and a straw yellow hue. Nose was malty, spicy, sweet and mildly hoppy. Flavor was thin, spicy, malty, sweet, and mildly hoppy tasting. Mouthfeel was smooth and thin. Light-medium body. Nicely done for the style and worthy of a try.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Nice blast of Belgian aromas up front. High carbonation. Initial flavor is very tart, citrus with some green apple acidity. Finishes with a woodsy, bitter note. Well done.

EithCubes (5458) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Bottle. Excitable but no gusher. Cloyingly sweet nose with lots of coriander and citrus. Hefty dose of acidity, sourness, and possibly vinegar. Golden pour with a sticky, creamy head. Extremely, brutally dry taste (at least until adaptation). Spices muddle together and end up leaving little impression. Some nice faint piney notes in with a splash of sourness, but not what I was expecting from the nose. Also would benefit from increased yeastiness. Crisp and slightly tongue numbing despite the low abv. Body is medium-full, aftertaste has a lick of lemon. Certainly easy to chug, but I’m not really looking for that in my Saisons. An off-balanced disappointment.

adrian910ss (2558) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Pours a hazy yellow orange color with an enormous white fluffy head. Aroma is peppery with strong sour lemon lime hints. Taste is zesty lemony with strong lime and orange peel overtones. Has a nice spicy peppery feel to it. Very good.

Nate (3998) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Courtesy of santoslhalper. Having just had some Lindemans Cuvee Rene earlier in the evening, the aroma of this bears a good resemblance. Big notes of sour tangy Brett, gueuze lambic mustiness. Mild hoppiness and not much malt. Hazy amber in color with thin lacing head. Medium-light bodied with light carbonation to it. Taste is mild and overall a bit watery, but has a nice sour mash Brett profile. Yeasty. Not quite what I envisioned for a saison, but more of a funky biere de garde heading toward a mild gueuze. Chalky and mildly bitter after.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Hazy orangish color - medium head that lingers with nice lacing. Aroma is fruity, with subtle notes of coriander, orange peel & lemon. Flavor is tangy, with some good spiciness throughout and a subtle hop presence. Finish kind of clings to the palate a bit. Nice stuff.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle. I made the mistake of opening this one and then turning my back. It foamed out onto the counter in seconds. Pours crystal bubbly gold with an ample, thick, fluffy, white head. Aroma is funky, musty, tangy. Flavor is funky, musty, tangy, but very light. Likeable and easy to drink.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Pours hazy medium orange with a rocky white head. Aroma has hints of lemon, leather broth, horse blanket, and spices (corriander). Flavor is heavily bitter and sour throught and has a lingering finish. Medium bodied and watery, also livley carbonated. I guess I dont like farmhouse ales.
