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.

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

Clear gold, strong white head. Sour, hints of clove and pepper. Sour, yet not overly so, medium bodied and delicious. Wonderful.

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.

En l som er for syrlig og bitter. Det er akkurat som om det er presset en sitron oppi.

750ml bottle. No date. Appearance: pale yellow and mostly clear, with thick bubbled white foam cap. Aroma: Lacto sour aroma dominates. German weizen yeast is barely noticeable. Was expecting more. Taste: A light sour apple flavor is prominent, with the lactic acidity front and center. Again, no noticeable banana esters or clove phenols Id expect from something with weizen yeast. Mouthfeel: Light body and a crisp carbonation. Finish: tart acidity from the lacto lingers on the tongue well after the swallow. A faint hint of light maltiness as well. Overall: I was intrigued by the combination of German weizen yeast and sour cultures to try this beer. The thought of those wonderful weizen esters and aromas with some acidity seemed like a great combo....but I honestly get none of it. The lacto dominates in the absence of any semblance of weizen yeast character. The beer is still very crisp, tart, and drinkable, but I feel like Im drinking a slightly subdued Berliner Weisse

Tap @ Jolly Pumpkin: Soft, golden color with amber towards the center. Hazy throughout, topped with a bright white, cotton-like head. Aroma has a nice mix of yeasty, hefe-like indicators & funky, saison-like zest. Banana, citrus zest, pear skins, soft wheat, mild horsey funk, old cork, faint lemon-lime, & a hint of earthiness. Like a mildly funky, ever-so-slightly tart hefeweizen. Flavor is an amplified version of the aroma. Lots more fruit... Pear, white grape, green apple, citrus zest, even a small hint of cherries. Soft graininess & a big blanket of wheat. Very small tartness spike alongside a nice handful of funky cork & wet hay. Back-end is yeast heavy, showing the "hefe" side of things more clearly. Finishes with notes of banana bread & clove, as well as a small hint of drying oak. Mouth feel is like a saison (thin, crisp, dry) rather than a hefe (creamy, chunky). Interesting take on a style of uncharted territory. I really like this beer.

veronneaupy (234) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Au nez, beaucoup d'acidité, une légère odeur de banane et un côté agrumé bien acide. En bouche, on goûte en premier l'acidité, suivi d'un goût de blé mélangé avec la banane sucré. La finale laisse la langue râpeuse, un goût acide qui persiste un moment. Vraiment une belle bière qui désaltère et nous fait saliver! Vive Jolly Pumpkin! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (5369) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2014
Smooth and slightly sour. No deepness, fresh wheat aroma, lots of carbonation. Nothing special, not a great brew. No typical Weizen-aroma, only a bit sour, nearly no tartness. Very disappointing... 4/10/3/4
