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.

Beerenberger (1447) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Barnyard funk is the most assertive aroma, but hints of citrus are also detected. An unfiltered pale yellow pour with little head and no lacing precede a very rewarding taste experience. Wheat, bread, citrus, and a sourness that creeps up on you in the finish and lingers on the sides of your tongue well into the aftertaste. Light body with crisp carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer. A refined and well crafted wild beer.
