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.

Batch 315/316

9/10/2008: Jolly Pumpkin Weizen Bam has some JP funk that flattens out somewhat over the course of the bottle. The flavir is sour and yeasty with not very much wheatiness. There is a slightly amount of spice and white wine along with a touch of bittnerness in the finish. The beer pours a very pale straw, almost white color and is hazy with a foamy white head forming after the pour. It has a lively palate. overall this must e one of their lightest offerings. I was expeting more. This is more like Bam Biere Light.

750 ml. shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #127 for this beer.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Bottle shared with and thanks to xnoxhatex! Batch #399/400. Pours a slightly hazy glowing yellow/golden with a fantastic fine frothy white head. I’m already falling in-love. Crazy fruity bright lemony funky aroma with some interesting hints of aromatic tropical fruits like mango/peach and sweet banana.... love it. As usual per JP, flavor is also a bit lighter than aroma, dry with nicely accentuated nuances, slightly grainy at first, smooth tart banana, fruity, touch of alcohol, peach, lemon, funk, wonderful! Crisp light body, a bit chalky, great carbonation, softly fizzy. I would have this on tap at all times if I could.

unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2009
750ml bottle, blue cap. Pours a very bright yellow., typical JP tall foamy white head. Very distinct aroma of JP yeast. Barnyard, straw, bretty-funk. Also some tropical zest and lemonade smells. Flavor is very tart, like lemonade. There is a hint of wheat. i was not expecting a sour. as a matter of fact I was expecting a Weizen Bock. A sour German Hefe? It drink pretty good. Finishes very dry, with a touch of wood tannins. Refeshing. very light bodied.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle from Sicilianos in Grand Rapids, MI. Hazy straw color with creamy medium white head. Aroma is oaky, JP yeast, lemon, tropical fruit, a little sour, brett and a good amount of funk with barnyard. Flavor is lemon, orange and some other citrus, peaches, a little grain, brett, oak, jp yeast, dryer. Light, almost watery body with light carbonation. Very great, another amazing beer from JP, the only complaint from me is the body really.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2009
On tap at the Great Taste of the Midwest (8/9/08): Cloudy hazy pale golden pour has a large frothy pillowy white head. Aroma of light tart citrus and pale malted wheat. Body starts lightly sweet and effervescent with a nice balance of light lemony tartness before a smooth, slightly doughy finish. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fiver29. Hazy pale yellow with a lively off-white head that quickly dissipates. Thin body, quite watery actually, dry and vaguely tart with a massive carbonation and a hint of sulphur. Finishes rather dry. Nothing much happening here really. 010509
