COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fourth in our Bam Farmhouse series, and perhaps our most adventurous; a traditional farmhouse style hefeweizen. Weizen Bam seamlessly blends traditional German style hefeweizen yeast with our own local wild and sour cultures, for a melange of the most flavorful sort. Ruddy golden, with yeast driven esters of banana, spicy clove, and nutmeg all wrapped up with a generous dose of good-natured rapscallion delight.

Seamlessly blend hefe with the sour... well it's delicious but definitely first a sour with noticeable hefe qualities.

Lovely Farmhouse ale I can’t wait to have again. Very drinkable and would make a good initiation into sours for the unacquainted.

Dradt at Khyber Pass. Cloudy yellow gold pour that started with a large fizzy/foamy white head that quickly disappeared entirely. Tart Meyer lemons. Snow ball bread rolls. Slight Brett funk. Flavors remain lemon and bready throughout. Not overly complicated, but unusual.
