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!

Awesome pour- cloudy orange with a huge puff of head, almost like a scoop of ice cream on top. Aroma is cidery with some attic/closet smell. Flavor is tart, apple cider, yeast. Finishes tart and a little spicy.

750ml Bottle shared at the Midlands meeting on 23rd Aug 2014, cheers Tom. Hazy pour with a thin head. No horse blankets but plenty of farmyard aromas along with some citrus notes. The taste is similar but with a mild peppery and spicy feel within the flavours, there is also a sourness from those citrusy hints in the nose: my first beer from Jolly Pumpkin and hopefully not my last.

Draft. Aroma has the saison aroma, but also hints toward white wine as well. Appearance is a hazy gold with a frothy, white head. Taste is saison with a taste that reminds me of green grape skins. Palate is ok. Overall, a great saison. Not overpowering like most saisons. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drpimento (2220) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2014
This was bottled on July 20, 2011 and I don't think it's stood up so well to the test of time. Had a nice off White head that settled right away, no lace and a clear yellow amber color. Aroma was the best part which is like green apples and yeast. Flavor was good but just in a kind of generic farmhouse /saison sort of way, nothing remarkable. Body seemed a little be a little on the thin side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was basically a light to semi - hazy orange to bronze color. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a light lacing here and there and all over the place. The smell had a decent light grassy lemon allowing a light pepper to invade lightly to even bring in a light lime as well. As it warmed even further, there was a light sour apple. The taste was mainly sweet with a light lime/lemon and then the sour apple. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The aftertaste was slightly sour but yields a gentle lemon/lime to sour apple finish. Overall, interesting saison I say. Would I have it again? Probably not due to the price.

Transfer from BA review on 9-3-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Pours a hazy orange color with a huge white head. The head has amazing persistence and leaves a very nice level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is of lemon citrus and yeast. With this are some lighter aromas of a sour apple and some pine hop notes as well. Taste – The taste starts out of a bread and lemon sour flavor. As the taste advances the sourness grows stronger with some tartness of hits the tongue. The bread flavor is rather light now and the sourness and tart flavors of lemon get stronger with some yeast flavors and a lighter earthy and grassy hop flavor coming to the tongue. The sour flavors transition from being just lemon to a more lemon-apple mix as the taste advances to the end with the flavor crisping up a bit to leave a bittered bite on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with the carbonation level being rather high. Very standard. Overall – A decent saison,, but at the price you pay for it is not really one to go after -rather standard.
