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.

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.

Geiserich (3739) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle shared by Sebilinz at RB Linz Tasting, many thanks! Pale golden color, low white head. Decent and good balanced, sourly aroma, only hints of wheat in the nose. Some barrel notes. Flavor is sourly, light barrel notes. Dryness, some hop and wood bitterness. Refreshing, clean nice.

ryecatcher (1030) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2015
750mL bottle. Pale, straw yellow pour with medium white head. Barnyard funk and chardonnay in the nose, with some minerals and hay. Mouth is medium-light, tart, crabapple, bread, lemongrass. The tartness is reminiscent of a Berlinerweiss, and is a bit less complex than other JPB beers I’ve had. Not bad, though no idea where the hefeweizen character was supposed to show up... I’m not getting anything remotely like clove or banana.

Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is clove, banana, lactic acid, and fruit. Flavor is sour fruit with some clove. I enjoyed this sour hefe.

Sebilinz (1136) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle. Golden body with fast disappearing white head. Nice fruity aroma with peaches hints of wheat hints of banana. Taste is some wood, some barnyard and also fruits and malts. Aftertaste is sour fruity, dry and malty. Very nice and refreshing. Ideal summer beer.

Saeglopur (1117) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 18, 2015
750 ml bottle shared by Sebilinz at RB Linz Tasting, thanks!
Golden-orange, hazy body, with a small, frothy, white head.
Aroma of barnyard, sweet and sour fruits, oak, bread, some sweet malts.
Tastes follows this, with some leathery notes.
Quite light mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes sour, with oak, earth, some fruits, some leather.

Really nice. Very refreshing, with a well balanced sourness and lovely oak notes. I don’t get much of the wheat though. Overall a very enjoyable sour ale.

Wheatie light floral soap aroma has a fresh perfume quality to it. Hazy, light yellow white body with quick foamy white bubbles. Fizzy wheat and zippy lime zest flavour is nice and fresh. Light body is smooth. Quite enjoyable

wchesser (1517) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle about 7 months old. Slightly cloudy yellow. Nose of massive bretty pineapple, wheat, some light lemon zest. Flavors of wheat, light spicey andfruity yeast elements, lemon tartness. Think the age has really benefited this with some time in the bottle. Very balanced and much better than I expected.
