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!

Aroma of sour fermenting fallen crab apples in the fall and hay. Appears hazy yellow, white foam and lace. Taste is very mild, sour like a Berlinerweise, some pineapple, mildly bitter pomegranate seed. Palate is mildly fizzy. Overall, a beer yo can drink all day in hot weather.

Farmhouse funk, citrus and spice comprise the nose while a hazy yellow pour with a quickly dissipating voluminous white head provides abundant lacing. The taste is short, spicy, citrus and crisp. Light body and crisp carbonation. Dry finish. Overall, refreshing, crisp, and slightly hoppy.

slowrunner77 (1743) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
"a YEASTY SPICY AND CITRUS TINGED BREW. Adequately sour, has the JP house flavor and aroma. Murky as all hell and a bit explosive, but I enjoyed the 20-22 oz that were left in the botle after :) Next time I’ll open over the glass."

BlackHaddock (3763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
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.
