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.

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.

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.

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

kramer (5106) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2008
25 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice tight bubbled white head. Nice earthy wheat and hay with a slightly sour tinge, a little bit of stinky feet, and some nice white pepper and oak. Pretty funky flavor, but not over the top at all. Slightly sour with a nice bretty earthiness, A little dusty on the finish with white pepper. No hefe yeast character really, the funk seems to have overpowered the fruity esters. Mouthfeel is pretty dry with a great lively level of carbonation. Overall, these Bam Beers just keep getting better.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick, white head. Interesting aroma of wild brettanomyces, bananas and spices. Good flavor of brett, bananas and spices. The body is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation. Not as wild and amazing as the regular Bam, but still it’s an interesting experiment.

Sample courtesy of Bockyhorsey at the hellbilly holiday tasting. Nice cloudy gold color with a small foamy head that lasts. Lots of yeast, wheat, citrus and funk in the aroma. Grain, yeast, lemon and funk in the flavor. Light and smooth on the palate. A really good hefe! Thanks Bill!
