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!

A light, mildly funky take upon the classic Belgian saison. Paired well with mild brie.

DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
Gorgeously tart, dry and sleek with more than enough ’Bam’ for the ABV (ya see what I did there, OK.) Pale tart fruit (some gooseberry tart) and spicy-herbal funk, pale and cloudy from the bottle (LCBO) I agitated and set in the fridge yesterday, requires Duvel tulip but behaved well. Great stuff.

It pours murky copper with amber highlights; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma of notes of: starter, pepper, candied orange. The taste is lightly sour that finishes dry and bitter; there are notes of: cereal, lemon juice, and pepper. The palate is medium-light bodied with medium carbonation, and has a medium finish. Overall, it’s very pleasant.

[8608-20160729] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Citrusy fruity yeast aroma. Slightly hazy, yellow orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Tart citrus and bitter hoppy fruit and yeasty grass flavour. Medium body is fairly bitter. Good. (7/3/8/4/16) 3.8

kevinsenn (1993) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 Bottle from LCBO. Nice tart and citrus aroma. Tart and sour, but not without some sweetness to balance it out. Some citrus and grape notes. Slight herbal bitter finish. Very good.

ciocanelu (1318) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma has nice yeast esters, clean and floral. Taste is slightly tart, citrusy with a slightly bitter finish. Really good one, fresh and aromatic.

TheJester (2532) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
750 mL bottle. Beautiful, almost transparent copper with a medium, persistent, white head. Just about as pretty as a beer can look. Smells like a hoppy Orval. Body is thinner than you’d expect from the aroma, but about what you’d expect from the abv. Funky, especially at the end. High carbonation. An interesting, well-constructed beer.

PanMarek (241) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Floral nose with touches of musty grass. Pours slightly cloudy, dark golden with fine white, quick foam. Tart first flavors with crisp fizz and a slightly phenol finish. Medium body with slight soapiness and a sour and dry finish. Spices merge well with the mustiness as it warms up and the phenol fades. The balance seems to go to brett in the nose and phenol in the taste. The malts and hops are well muted.

dnicolaescu (1974) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 24, 2016
Shared BOTTLE. Subtle tart fruit, subtle oak vanilla and herbs. Dry taste, somewhat lacking intensity. Light tartness, and very light bitterness.

Metalchopz (3073) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Pours a hazy light-golden colour, kind of beige-yellow with a big white creamy head, long lasting and with some decent lacing. Carbonation is quite active with tiny bubbles. Sour aromas over citrus notes with Belgian Ale yeast and mild grass. The taste has the sourness again with citrus. Light grain and yeast tarts up the tongue in the aftertaste. Hints of spices. Not bad, but more of a sour wild beer than saison. Not my thing.

Maakun (3919) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2016
Tap at Jolly Pumpkin Detroit. Hazy golden with white head. Spicy yeast with white pepper, milky dough, green leaves, gooseberries, lemon, mineral water. Under medium sour and very light sweetness. Light bodied. Another good one!
