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.

Headbanger (2938) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2008
750 ml bottle (9/17/08) Courtesy of Hopscotch CU/WVU throwdown)-Pours a cloudy arangish yellow with a small ring for a head. Has an aroma of tartness, sourness, banana, and clove. Taste of the same with no real Hefe characteristics. It had more of a wit or Saison. This light to medium bodied brew was good and was meant what it was supposed to be.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
This half-Weizen, half Wild Ale is the setting for a union of dry wilderness, citrusy fruitiness and banana esters which ends up as a playful, tart and quite slender quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam tops the cloudy pale straw yellow.
-Carbonation appears intense in the glass, but is actually quite soft on the palate.
-Biscuity cereal notes develop with time.
-The finish is quite diplomatic in its intensity and flavor contribution.
-Cloves are found tightly linked to the funk.
-Tartness is decent, and is by no means aggressive.
-Some wooden dryness is tasted throughout.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle 75 cl. The appearence is rather odd on this one. Pours a milkypale piss-yellow with a hazyness to it. The nose is with marcipan, lactose, green lemons and grains. The taste is bitter but with the calmness of the german wheat. I also taste pomelo-citrus, walnuts with a finish that is bitter and packed with grapefruits. The palate is rather waterish but all together is this one way more powerful and complex l than the Hefe Weizens you ever will be served in bierstubes in Bayern

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Like the other bams this has a tart mild sour finish, light wheat to it, very crisp with a soft earthy hopping, soft citrus, mild hint of lemon. Very similar to how I remember bam, I need to try this and the original side by side.

Palidor19 (2881) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2008
thin and tart with not much flavor has got some taste of what a standard Hefeweizen but the sourness makes it unique to really enjoy anywhere to go around.

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2008
The aroma is sour and very much like a farmhouse ale with the funkiness dialed down. There is definitely funkiness in the form of the barnyard smell but it’s not super strong. There is also plenty of malt and a touch of hops. The wheat beer elements are very dialed down. I don’t really taste or smell much banana, clove, nutmeg, or bubble gum. The taste is just like the aroma. The appearance is hazy gold with a large head. The palate is thin. Overall not one of my favorites.

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle obtained from Knightly Spirits. Pours a cloudy golden/straw color with a big rocky head. Aroma is of yeast, citrus and some earthy notes. Flavor is very refreshing and well balanced. Citrus blends with some spice, light fruit and a nice tart finish. Very solid beer once again from JP.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle: Poured a light golden color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes is dominating with some light funky notes as well. Taste is also dominated by light sour notes with some tartness and some funky barnyard-like notes. Greta carbonation with a medium-full body. Very well done with some great balance and easily drinkable.

TURDFERGUSON (3910) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Bottle secured for me by JCB. Thanks so much for obtaining and cellaring this beer for me, Jason! Shared with Jason, Ethan, and Bob. Pours a light, very cloudy yellow with a frothy white head. Nose has a very refreshing light bitterness couple with a funky wheat and refined earthiness. Flavor is lemon, more tart wheat, slight bitterness in finish. Delicious. This is my kind of hefeweizen...I could drink this all day long.
