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.

Bottle, Cole’s Rare Beer Fest. A nice change of styles with all of these 10%+ beers going on! Neat hazy yellow with a small white head. Lemon yeasty aroma. Tate is great - very quenching lemon and yeast, great mouthfeel. It tastes better because of the thick big beers we are having today but no matter - this is complex drinkable stuff and one of the best Jolly Pumpkins I have had. Still has the Jolly slight sour edge to it as well. Great.

very cloudy, yellow with foamy white head. tart with light citrus and wheat flavors. somewhat one dimensional, but pleasant and an enjoyable drink. if it was cheaper, i could see having a pint every now and then, but as is, its nothing to write home about.

egajdzis (5270) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Poured a light hazy golden color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, hay, clove, vanilla, citrus, toast, and toffee. Taste of citrus, lemongrass, toasted malts, light vanilla, and a tart finish.

Bottle from Bottle Barn. Light lemon color with a decent frothy white head. Aromas of lemon, clove and banana over grain. Could be some funk. Hope. Medium bodied with strongish carbonation. The funk is present. The lemon comes through. The banana is pretty much lost, and the spice is blending into the funk. Finish is tart and funky. Not their strongest/funkiest, but quite refreshing.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Pours a hazy golden yellow color wiuth a thin, bubbly white ehad that settles to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of banana, clove, to go with lemon citrus, wheat, and that typical JP funk. The flavor follows with some tart lemons, crisp wheat, and some funky yeast. The oak seems to balance things out from getting sour. Light bodied with good carbonation that is very dry and refreshing. This one goes down smooth and is very easy drinking. Nice take on the style from these guys.

Sammy (8397) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2009
Not a weizen, more farmhouse. Thanks boutip.A medium mouthfeel, lightly orange coloured body with retained white bubbly head. Taste is a bit sour, almost delicate spicyness with noticeable wheat. A tad grassy aroma. Good balance between the sour wheat, the hops.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2009 Hazy gold with big, foamy white head / Complex, floral and bretty nose of orchard fruit, citrus, and spice / Very light body, tart and acidic, with good balance and long, dry finish / Subdued flavors of lemon, wheat, banana, oak, and a good dose of barnyard funk / A stretch to call it a hefeweizen, but nonetheless a great wheat beer by the Pumpkin without peer.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011
In short: A wheaty beer that is very tart, lemony and a little wild. A good beer but this is no Bam Biere.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh soon after purchase.
The look: Almost clear yellow body topped by a persistent but small white head
In long: Nose is wild and inspires tartness, somewhat reminiscent of the original Bam Biere but softer. Taste is a bit of a let-down when compared to the original Bam Biere. Lemony, tart and funky like its big sister but a lot softer and a lot less funky. Wheat is very present. Distant banana notes. Finish is a bit dry and very tart. A bit similar to the Bam Biere (more so than the ES Bam that is a totally different beer) but feels very simple/straightforward compared to the Bam Biere. A very good beer on its own but too many similarities with the much superior Bam Biere to be worth recommending. I probably won’t have it again once I’m done with my bottles. That’s a bad interpretation of the funky Bam Biere, I felt like a old-time fan coming out of a recent Lionel Ritchie concert, it was good but I wanted more funk.

gotta love how bocky gives thanks to himself for bringing this out in his review!

cloudy dull yellow color with a dense tight white head. this actually smells like a bale of hay mixed with dirty wheat, slightly sour lemon, some spicy clove, cement and a bunch of that famous JP stink! oddly delicious flavor combo... earthy dusty wheat, clove, lemon, banana, slight floral notes and spice with a really dry finish. i taste all the hefe stuff then realize, hey, there’s some stoney dry JP funk in here! the body is seemingly light since it is considerably drier than the run of the mill hefe and the carbonation is crazy lively.

neat-o. 8/4/8/3/16/3.9

Sample courtesy of Bockyhorsey at the hellbilly holiday tasting. Aromas wheat and sour lemons. Cloudy Yellow body with white head. Gooos lemon sour zesty and somewhat soapy. Easy on the palate.
