COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of Bam's brown eyes is, in fact, black. When mischief reigns supreme, it positively glows. Dedicated to the dark side; smooth, dark, incredibly delicious as only a Jack Russell with bat wings can be.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours a dark hazy red, almost opaque, with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is spicy, with hints of tangy and sour cherries. Light maltiness. Taste has a solid toasted and roasty malt core. Cinnamon and other light spices. Hints of fruity hops. Finish is bitter, dark. Great body on this one, light and frothy.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 17, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Muddy brown coloured, medium to big sized beige head, acidic fruity nose. Moderate sweet malty, slight acidic and spicy fruity, subdued brett and touch of wood with slight acidic fruity finish. Really good for (almost) one-dimensional beer. Success for sure.

Very nice saison that was a little bit more sour than normal. Low alcohol made it a little sweet as well which was a nice juxtaposition.

northropfrye (2454) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
This was so thin, flat and watery that I felt maybe the bar was doing something wrong. I really don’t know. Has a slightly tart and fruity flavour, but very subdued. Finishes dry and vinous. But all of this is not very pronounced. Unexpected for a good brewery like Jolly Pumpkin. I’ll have to try this again if I have the chance.

Minderbinder (2333) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy mahogany (or very dark amber) with a huge frothy light-beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of bretts, soap, mangos, weird vanilla. Taste is of bretts, fruits, bitterness, soap. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Nothing stellar.

mathieuc (1852) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours a medium brown with a high and foamy offwhite/dirty head that leaves moderate lacing. Nose is of brett and roasted malt, not really enticing. Taste is of roasted malt, husky and tartness is really low. Body was medium, carbonation medium-high and I thought it wasn’t too tasty (unlike your usual Jolly Pumpkin). Overall an OK beer but not much more.

tom10101 (3580) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle (750 ml) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Split with the Québec crew.

Appearance: Clear copper / light brown with a huge bubbly off-white head leaving good lacing.

Aroma: Mild roasted malts along brettanomyces, hints of red fruits, lemony notes and a tiny bit of oak.

Taste: Light roasted malt presence along brettanomyces, light herbal notes, a touch of oak, mild fruitiness and mild lemony presence.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Foamy/areated mouthfeel and a bit watery. Moderately dry finish.

Overall: Not really complex (the low abv Jolly Pumpkin are usually at least a little more deep than this one). Easily drinkable, but it’s still way more without the roasted malts (regular Bam Biere). Decent / good.

TH28 (200) - - FEB 28, 2015
12oz bottle. Appearance: Clear brown with deep orange and ruby highlights, with a small white foam cap. Aroma: Lactic acid dominates the aroma with a slight hint of toasted malt. Taste: Very little malt character, as the lactic acid overruns the flavor, with hints of lemon and apple. Tart acidity is strong but pleasant. Very one dimensional taste. Mouthfeel: Light and thin, with moderate carbonation. Finish: A bracing acidity and tartness with no apparent maltiness. Overall: Very similar to Weizen Bam in that the beer is very one dimensional with the lactic acid dominating the flavor profile, with no definitive malt profile. While I like the pleasant acidity of JP beers, there seems to be no differentiation between beers because the malt profile is nonexistent.

freeofthoughts (681) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Tap pours a hazelnut brown with tall near khaki foam. A pleasant funky Belgian sour aroma. While the nose was great the flavor leaves a lot to be desired. Light all around, dark malts leave a roasted bitterness, the funky near Flanders red aroma never really shows much of any sourness. It’s enjoyable but overall a very mild Belgian brown ale with wheat.
