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.

Gold with a haze. Sour flavor. Cant tell it’s wheat. Think old books and wood. Very bitter, sour and delicious.

Minderbinder (3145) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle 750ml. Pours blond with low to no white head. No lacing. Aroma is of faint clementines. Taste is of sourness, old rags, acid. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Ok. Honestly not much to say here. Boring for sure.

mathieuc (2958) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a white rim on top that leaves low lacing. Nose is of dried leaves and cereals. Taste is lightly tart and a bit citrus. Light wheat protein. Some white wine impressions. Body is light to medium, carbonation medium-high and mouthfeel is a bit weak and thin. Overall I thought it was OK but not much more.

How: Bottle (750 ml) at czar’s place. Bought from Craftshack. Old bottle?

>>> A bland and disappointing Jolly Pumpkin with not much of the advertised flavors (banana, cloves, nutmeg).

- Slightly hazy pale yellow-golden with a small ring of white foam and little to no lacing.
- Lemony and herbal hops forward but not much else.
- Where are the banana, clove and nutmeg?
- Body is light and on the watery side. Herbal and rather bland finish.
- One of the most disappointing Jolly Pumpkin I have had. Not much complexity here. Moderate sourness.

Flavors: Lemon, herbal notes, cheesy presence, old rag.
