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!

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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2006
The beer empties from the 12-ounce brown bottle a slightly hazy gold with bits of suspended matter, the head modest in size, semi-creamy in texture, the color a splendiferous white, and the residual lace a velum like sheet to obfuscate the glass. Nose has a sprightly citrus like tone, hints of hops and a nice malt sweetness at the back, start is tartly sweet, grain presence delectable and the top moderate in feel. Finish is prickly in its acidity, the hops delightful; a nice semi-sweet dry aftertaste ends this most excellent beer.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2007 Gold pour with a huge, rock solid, white head. Musty, sour funk, spicy yeast, light vinegar, grains, cedar like wood, grassy hops. Medium body, well carbonated. Another excellent JP brew. My favorite session.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Thebeercellar2: Poured a slightly hazy blonde color ale with a huge foamy white head with great retention. Very interesting aroma consisting of brett with some sweet malt, some funk and some wheat and spices. Taste as some sourness and funkyness which is well balance with some sweet malt, some light spices and some oak characteristic. Very well done and very interesting from this brewery, which just seem to continually amaze me.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle: Pours to a hazy straw golden yellow body with small bubbles visable rapidly rising to the surface to meet a medium white head. The aroma is lemon, orange rind, sweet yeast, and some light spice. The flavor is lemon, orange rind, white wine barrel, corriander, black current, sour white grape juice, and hints of dry wheat. Light bodied, crisp, medium-lively carbonated.

Bottle from Holiday Wine. Semi explosion when I opened the bottle and a big head when I first poured. Pours golden light orange and cloudy. Thick and creamy white head. Nose is greated with citrus, yeasy and spice. Taste is again citrus, apple peel and slightly medicinal. Finishes lemony and sour with some malt. Somewhat carbonated and fairly light body. Nice overall.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 Bottle. Aroma: lemon curd, star anise, yeast, barnyard. Smells wonderful. Appearance: Nice slightly hazy golden yellow in color. Remarkable head! White rocky head that you could build a house on. Head lingered looooong time. Great lacing. Flavor: Slightly off lemon up front, musty/earthy flavors which transition into fresh hop flavor, a dose of malt, wheat, and yeast, and finally a nice cleansing bitterness that refreshes the palate. Palate: Medium bodied. Lively carbonation (be careful when you pour this one!). Finish was refreshing with hints of lemon and hops. Slight bitterness buildup on my tongue over the course of the tasting. Overall: An eminently drinkable and very refreshing beer loaded with complexity. Very, very good.

Kickin off the weekend right. Hazy gold, rocky white head (everlasting lace). Really nice typical JP nose of funky lemon, soft farmyard notes, hints of ginger, oak, and a very faint touch of bourbon (really worked for that aroma). Flavor notes were much of the same with more lemon snap, spice, with touches of oak and farmyard. A slight hop bitterness pulls this all together in the end for near perfect balance. Light to medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, soft funky, drying lemony finish. A great summer session brew without a doubt....

Reminds me of Hair of the Dog Ruth. The appearance of this beer is world class. Dark, cloudy gold with large pieces of brown sediment and a ginormous white head that lasts a very long time. Strange yeasty, funk aroma. Not quite horseblanket, but it almost smells like gin without the alcohol. Very light hops in the aroma as well. This is a dry beer. There is some lambic like strangeness in the flavor that works very well. Just a touch of lightly bitter hops. Finish is very dry with aged bitter cheese like Saint Nectaire.
