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!

Love the label. Big fan of Bull Terriers. Not much else about this beer pleases me. Cloudy amber body with a fizz head. Aroma was nondescript. Mainly yeast, if pressed to note. The flavor was a bit better. A hint of banana, some malt, pepper. The high rating surprises me. Maybe I missed something.

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.

Shared BOTTLE. Subtle tart fruit, subtle oak vanilla and herbs. Dry taste, somewhat lacking intensity. Light tartness, and very light bitterness.

Metalchopz (3055) - 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 (3626) - 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!

Great farmhouse ale/saison. Very yeasty, sour and wild with hops that taste of pine, some herbal peppery notes, citrus and a little grass. Not very sweet in the malt. Quite bitter in the aftertaste.

beerplace (704) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. It is Sour Brown Ale, not a Saison. Aroma is similar to Flemish ales with cherry and woody notes. Taste is pretty the same + bready notes. The only differece to Flemish ales is in hoppy bitterness, which is really high in aftertaste. Good beer.

Cloudy, straw coloured body. Bubbly, big white head. Very dry. A little tart. Lemongrass. White pepper. A tad salty. A little sour. Like a Farmhouse Ale meets a Gose.

Alpha10 (597) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
2016/07/20 - Pours a cloudy deep gold colour with a thick, foamy white head that slowly reduces and leaves ample lacing. Aroma is barnyard funk, lemon, doughy yeast, floral hops and sour grapes. Taste is tart lemon and green grapes, barnyard funk, dough, floral hops and pepper. Mouthfeel is medium with sharp carbonation and a crisp, very dry finish. Complex, but all the pieces fit perfectly. Really lovely beer that is very well put together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
