COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A farmhouse style hefeweizen. Weizen Bam seamlessly blends traditional German style hefeweizen yeast with our own local wild and sour cultures, for a menage of the most flavorful sort. We’ve added lemongrass to this firkin to make it extra delicious! Golden, with yeast driven esters of banana, spicy clove, and nutmeg all wrapped up with a generous dose of good-natured rapscallion delight! This beer is a seasonal and available throughout the summer months.

MBGSF ’10. Big beautiful citrus-- lemony nose with lots of tart yogurt. Taste is lightly sweet, moderately tart, and just slightly bitter. Flavors of juicy lemon, dusty hay, light cotton candy and flowers. Lovely stuff and the top beer of the fest.

sampled at MBGSF’10 - arouma is incredible.... citrusy, lemongrass, basil. Light floral. quaffable. Perfect lightly tart and funky summer beer... especially considering the oppressive heat of the fest.

Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Festival 2010. Bright citrus, pale golden pour. Fresh and tropical with a kiss of pineapple. Brightly fruity/herbal nose with a soft wheaty aroma. Fresh and fruity. Nice bright estery character with a touch of peach as well. Bright tartness and a lovely fruitiness. Juicy and fruity. Man, this is good stuff.

On tap during MBF 2010, RBSG. Hazy gold bright white cap, the lemon grass is really really nice, fresh adn candy like, lemons, light spice - amazing spices. The chick next to me isn’t wearing a bra and has big, huge nipples.... yea! Taste: really wheaty, big citrus lemon, very sweet and tangy, little bit of spices, light pepper, bizarre, good bite and goes back smooth and leaves a tingle in the mouth, sour starting to roll through on the back end. Kyle!

GTMW. Came for the Roja Kriek but stayed for the Lemongrass Weizen Bam. This was perhaps the biggest surprise of the Taste. Weizen bam was as delicious as I remember, but the lemongrass added an incredibly refreshing edge to the beer. Light and drinkable, this would be great in a bottle for summer.

On tap at MBGSF 2010. Dish soapy in the best possible way. Lots of bugspray, excellent lemon, indescribable. Well, kinda like if Lemon Pledge tasted good.

Poured at the MBG Summer Fest 10’. Poured a nice hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma was huge lemon (wood soap, in a good way), citrus and brett, taste was much the same, great acidic lemon throughout, I didn’t know the lemon grass would really add that much flavor, still a yeasty background, very refreshing tartness. This was one of my favorite new beers of the fest, I was really digging this one.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Tap at MBGSF. I drank this one repeatdely. Wheaty, full, and rich, spicy yeast. Unmistakable JP funk. And of course, that signature "thai" note that you’d expect from lemongrass. This one works exceptionally well. The beer is as sessionable as ever, but has a cool complexity you don’t find in the original. Excellent.

Draft at MBGSF at RBSG ’10. Pours a hazy gold. Nose is super lemon balmy with herbal notes. clove and spice come through, as does bread. JP funk. On taste, excellent tartness, clean. Not hefe at all, more lemon balm notes. some mild funk. Pretty excellent.
