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!

chickenflea (347) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2010
22-oz bottle. A hazy golden color with a large rocky white head, highly carbonated , lots of jagged lacing left. Aroma is slightly yeasty, spicy with a bit of tartness. Flavor is slightly sour and yeasty, coriander and citrus with a hint of tangerine in the finish, not as sweet as other Saison I have had. Smooth. Light body with a crisp ,clean mouthfeel , and a dry finish. Very refreshing and sessionable , a very good beer.

UXO (419) - CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours cloudy straw with a huge three plus fingers of pillowy white head, great retention and heavy chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is largely dominated by brett funk, with some stone fruit, lemon and grass, pale malt and pineapple. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, bitter, tart, and funk. (8/10) Light body, fizzy carbonation, dry funky finish. (4/5) The brett developed in the bottle aging has added a nice complexity to a bright and citrusy saison (while making this thing almost impossible to pour!). Lots of horseblankety character on the nose, but the tongue is still dominated by a lemony tartness. (15/20)

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Ive had this before but somehow never rated it. The variant at Blue Monk was actually Weizen Bam Biere, which Id never had before. Really a nice saison, as always from JP. I liked the little bit of sweetness imparted by the wheat base. Solid.

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.

"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 Ill open over the glass."
