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.

750 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Bright yellow, hazy with a small, loose white head. Aroma: Bright and a bit funky, some green bitter herbs, a little Weizen in the form of some weak esters and wheatiness, lemony citrus, a bit of yeast, Palate: Medium body and fairly active but not too sharp effervescence. Flav.: Quite citrusy, acidic, funky, bright, a little yeast and wheat, none of the typical Weizen esters; kinda sour, a bit bitter with lingering minerals and tang.

Hmmm, this isn’t really working for me. Maybe my bottle has swung too much to the Farmhouse side, as the Weizen characteristics are almost absent. I’m a big JP fan, so I’ll grab another bottle.

Thanks ogglethorp. Hazy pale straw gold with a huge, open white head maintained by ongoing effervescence. Leaves broad tracks of lace on the glass. Tenacious sour farmhouse yeast aroma, somewhat citric. I don’t find any of the banana or clove normally produced by weissbier yeast. Flavor is primarily tart and citric. Some worty grains and brettish creaminess develop towards the finish. Medium body, spritzy, somewhat creamy lingering mouthfeel.

750ml bottle courtesy of Tayner, thanks a bunch. I have not seen this on the shelves in Colorado so I was happy to get this bottle. Nice cloudy yellow-white almost looks like a wit but more yellow. Tasty, funky and doesn;t remind me of a hefe. nice beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-20-2008 05:35:15

Thanks to Solan for this! NP10. Hazy bright gold pour fluffy tan head and drippy lace. Floral hops and lemon on the nose. Yeast, citric tartness and oak. I did not pick up any phenolic flavors which is a major plus in my book!

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2011 This pours very light colored, yellow or lighter gold with a big fluffy white head. Not as much head retention as some other JP brews I’ve had but there was still lots of spotty lacing. The aroma is malty and grassy with some zesty fruits sneaking through. This is highly carbonated with a prickly feel. Flavors are spicy with sour tartness, some banana, cloves, but overall very light. Didn’t pick up much oak. This beer is light and easy drinking with some funk but not as much funk as many other JP offerings. Not in the top tier of JP’s portfolio but very solid nonetheless.

blankboy (6067) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle at ’Cole’s Rare Beer Fest’, Buffalo, NY. Pours a hazy, bubbly pale yellow with a small diminishing white head. Slightly sweet aroma with wheat, yeast, some light tart fruit and floral hops. Nice refreshing flavour is yeasty along with wheat and citrus fruit -- lightly tart and funky and with a dry finish. Nice carbonation. Very good stuff and a nice pleasant change after all the big beers at this festival!

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2009
On tap at BrewKettle. Pours a nice hazy very light straw yellow with a nice long lasting fluffy sticky white head. Aroma is instant JP funk with a doughy cream of wheat earthy maltiness - phenolic as all hell but still good. Clove and vanilla in the flavor- some hefe character along with the bretty and lacto funk from the house JP stuff, nice doughy wheat and a great dry crisp finish.

750mL bottle, Batch 315/316 purchased @ Bottle Barn. Effervescent pale yellow urine with a fizzy, yet well sustained one finger white head. Aroma of lemons, leathery brett, straw, and some dry oakand aspirin--so far I can’t really pick out much of the hefe, but has everything that makes regular Bam good. Flavor adds light bananas and wheat, and might have a hint of some spicy clove notes. Yeah, kinda hard to pick out over the sourness and lacto but they are there. Bone dry finish, bitterness peaking around a 2. High spritzy carbonation as one would expect from JP with a light body. One helluva of a thirst quencher! It is quite possibly I like this one a little more than regular Bam.
