COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bam is an extra special dog. After surviving being struck by a car, he daily somehow manages to avoid being carried away by the largish birds of prey gliding overhead, riding unseen thermals. Bam’s tenacity seems only to be surpassed by his oversized personality. Join us in this celebration of his excess. More malt, more hops, same vivacious personality.

JStax (3234) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy light gold with an enormous white head of foam. The head lasts for quite awhile. It took several minutes to pour three glasses. The aroma is very heavily funky with some definitive lactic notes coming through. The taste on the other hand, is not quite as tart as the nose would indicate. It’s actually kind of sweet. Overall, this is a very good beer. However, the nose is very misleading of taste. Wish it was a little more sour than it is, but so be it. It’s still a kick ass bitter.

Swans (127) - FRANCE - OCT 14, 2012
Pours hazy gold color with a thin fluffy head. The aroma is like a sweet lemon cake above a monkey's ass. Good sour & bitter balance with a dry and fresh aftertaste. A good one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RamyG4 (321) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Batch 759 bottle dated 3-23-2011. Opaque cloudy caramel-amber colored beer with a huge off-white head. Aroma is a good balance of hops, acidity, funk, and sweetness Lots of citrus, pine, some tropical fruits. Taste is medium to heavy bitter, strong hop presence considering the age of the bottle. Only a hint of sourness but it’s there. Finish is bitter. Light bodied, a ton of carbonation-too much. Good on a hot day.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml into a cervoise goblet. Batch 753, bottled 3-18-2011 A: Slight hazy mixture of amber and copper. Ridiculous head with ridiculous retention. Lace is insane as well. S: Funky yeast with some light tropical fruits. Some banana as well with a finish of a slight tree bark and hop mixture. T: The taste is a heightened version of the nose, but more hoppy. Funky yeast upfront with a slight vine through the middle and finishes with some bitter hops. M: Smooth and creamy on the mouth. Medium bodied with a light fruit finish and some high carbonation. O: I really enjoyed this beer. Funkiness with the hops on the backend really made it cohesive and it worked nicely. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2011

on tap at Beer Engine 28Sept2012, What is wrong with you people? seems like they ruined what could have been a good bitter, the funk and farmhouse aspect just ruins this to me, it adds a back tart note that wrecks what a good clean bitter should be

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Probably my least favorite in the Jolly Pumpkin’s lineup. .. but it is interesting nonetheless.This is an interesting ale that displays a ton of depth and complexity, but at the same time, it lacks drinkability and balance.

AlainG (1349) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
Liquide orangé et voilé ayant une énorme mousse flottant à sa surface et qui ne veut pas se résorber. Lorsqu’elle s’y contraint, elle laisse toute une dentelle aux parois du verre. Les brettanomyces me font sourire de satisfaction, alors que des arômes de houblon et d’herbes s’infiltrent au travers ses vapeurs. En bouche, les bretts sont toujours présentes. Une douce amertume est perçue après un certain temps. Un côté très sèche. Ce n’est pas la plus grande des bières, sauf que je n’ai pas dégusté quelque chose de semblable très souvent.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
750ml brown bottle. Batch 1037 & 1038, bottled 03/06/2012. Foam over upon uncapping. Dark gold, hazy, massive white bubbly head that never dies. Lace everywhere, foam everywhere, beer everywhere. Nose has funk, leathery and wild. Taste has big funkiness,malty with leathery and mildly earthy tones. Earthy hop fade out. Body is medium, well carbonated. A good brew, the ever foaming bottle was a bit problematic.

Bottle sample. Turbid orange color with a big head. Bretty nose, fruity, with a hint of sweat. Citric acidity, medium bitterness, grapefruit peels. High carbonation, light body, refreshing and dry. Not a bitter but a nice funky saison.
