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.

portableparty (2248) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2012
750ml bottle (batch 817 bottled 6-16-2011). First pours crystal clear gold with floaties and a soft white soapy head that dissipates to a film and collar, second and third pour is cloudy. Aroma has subtle, but nice sour tartness with some lemon orange peel and yeast. Taste has solid tartness and lactic flavors with subtle citrus lemon and yeast with a nice bitterness and bready biscuit finish. Palate is medium and very fizzy with a drying finish. Nice brew with a lot of dryness.

Minderbinder (2793) - 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 (2484) - 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.

Geiserich (3863) - 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 (1108) - 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.
