On tap at MBGSF 2010. Big lemon grass aroma. Very tangy, with lemon. Very dry, medium-strong sourness. Smooth, with lots of lemon and lemon grass. Herbal as hell. Nice, very refreshing. I would have it a little bit more sour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at GTMW. Poured milky pale golden with a short, but well-retained white head. The aroma picked up peppery yeast and lemongrass as expected over a soft, bready malt base.. well-presented. The lemongrass really took over in the flavor department and soured it up throughout (along with the oak).. some lighter fruits showed as well.. peppery and lemon on the dry, bitter finish. Lighter-bodied on the palate with filling carbonation.. the sourness was refreshing.. decent overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on tap at the MiBGF (Ypsilanti, MI). Pours hazy bright yellow, straw small whitish head. Aromas are lemon, grass, wheaty flaked wheat, dusty brett. Initial mirrors this, decent lemon acidity, grass, wheat, brett. This is nicer version, the lemon grass leaves the base Bam intacr, providing a citrusy accent and grassy appeal, decent bitterness. Quite tasty, would like again in a sitting element. Nice wheat bread, esters play off the lemon grass with a synergy, proper bitterness, nice funky brett, dust, barnyard.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
GTMW 2009: Very hazy faded golden hue with a small fading head. The aroma has notes of wheat husks, lemongrass, banana, clove, and moderate phenolic vapours. The taste has a nice tartness without becoming over the top, you can still taste the Weizen Bam quite easily. Spicy and herbal finish with a kiss of wood. The mouth feel is refreshing and lively, mouth watering making you want more. Slightly better than the Weizen Bam with Hibiscus, well done other than the awful appearance of the aforementioned beers.

gtmw09....pours muddy yellow with a thin white head.... somewhat refreshing aroma of lemon and wheat....flavors of tart lemon but the lemongrass totally overpowers which takes away from the brew imo. medium carbonoation and mouthfeel. not bad but i wouldn’t go back to it...
