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.

Aroma is dominated by sour, light wheat present though. Crystal clear golden body with tons of carbonation. Taste is overwhelmed by sour and a bit of yeasty funk. Not much wheat body to it at all. Some sips finish watery. Finally can pick up some wheat in the aftertaste which is nice. While wheat is a light flavor, it is overwhelmed here. Nice and well done, but it comes across very one sided. Glad to have tried it but would not buy again.

Bottle, bottled 07/03/13. Pours yellow with a big lightly coloured creamy head. Aroma is yeast with sweet ripe fruits and spices, and malty notes with honey, toffee, as well as grass, apple cider vinegar, and scant stable notes. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is tart fruity yeast with citrusy lemon peel, and apple cider vinegar giving a nice sourish finish.

Tasted on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. It poured a hazy with a light golden hue and almost no head or lacing. Aroma of green apple with a hint of pineapple. Most bitter tasting Weizen I’ve ever had.

Lovely Farmhouse ale I can’t wait to have again. Very drinkable and would make a good initiation into sours for the unacquainted.

NikkTwist (1517) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Dradt at Khyber Pass. Cloudy yellow gold pour that started with a large fizzy/foamy white head that quickly disappeared entirely. Tart Meyer lemons. Snow ball bread rolls. Slight Brett funk. Flavors remain lemon and bready throughout. Not overly complicated, but unusual.

dmac (3892) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle at Pauls. Poured an ugly 70% huge fizzy off white head 30% pale straw yellow body. Aroma is funky, farmhouse, lemon, wet wheat. Flavor is soft, lemon, wheat, funk, brett, horse blanket. Delicate body, light fizzy carbonation, softer mouthfeel, quicker fading aftertaste.

haukur (1259) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 19, 2014
Batch 108, 06/06/13. Huge dust and attic notes in the aroma. Medium bodied. Taste is obvious brett, funk, spices, some wheat and an incredible acidic and dry. This is very good considering the abv!

pintbypint (2541) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
750ml brown bottle with a cap. Gushed when uncapped... Gold colour, hazy, thin white cap. Nose is lemony and sour. Taste has wheat malts, dash of caramel, lemony and sour. Dry and very clean finish. A shame about the gush, but thankfully turned out quite well.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Almost a gusher. No head. Almost an apple scent. The Hefe character seems aged out or overpowered. Almost cidery.

Noe dunkel lys gyllen farve med masse lyst skum som gradvis avtar. Lukt av syrlig frukt, hvete, banan, gjær og krydder. Smak av syrlig frukt, hvete, gjær og krydder. Syrlig ettersmak. Vaaland.
