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.

portableparty (2279) - 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.

obguthr (5580) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Crabapple and oak nose. Clear yellow, headless. Sour apple, oak, lemon finish. Medium body, easy carbonation. Great amount of sourness, little wheat character, fairly simple.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle, shared by Phil - thanks! Pale yellow-orange with small white head. Extremely fresh, citric and farmhouse-y, unripe apricot aroma, wheaty. Light sourness, acidity and stickiness - extremely well balanced. Crisp, lightish body, even somewhat watery on the palate. Lovely brew!

Rask0lnikov (651) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2016
660ml bottle. Thank you, FatPhil! Golden yellow colour. Thin line of white froth around the glass. Slight barnyard, slight acidity, maybe hints of vinegar, hints of citrusses in the aroma. Sour beginning. Notes of white wine and citrusses. Flowery in the middle like a good farmhouse. Slight barnyard. Sour, citrussy refreshing finish. Well balanced, rather light bodied, averagely carbonated, interesting and good sour ale. I like the farmhouse touch here. The balance between the barnyard and acidity is really good.

750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy orange color. Tiny size, white head, stays as a ring. Sour, acidic, fruity, leather, poop in aroma. Fruity, acidic, earthy, lemon in taste. Fruity lemon in aftertaste. Acidic mouthfeel. Light body. Quite solid brew.

FatPhil (13588) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2016
660ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Simple aroma, bit of light wheatiness, pleasantly citrussy. Taste has a lovely lemony sharpness, soft pale grain support, hint of yeast. Very nice metallic sharp bitter bite, finish is tingly. Simple, but effective. Very drinkable. Want a bit more from it, though, itís almost throwaway. The metallic long finish is very nice, thatís the bite I like.

Bottle shared by Phil, thanks! Hazy yellow pour, almost no head. Nose is sweet, wheaty, citrus hints. Flavor is tart, lemons, less wheaty than the nose. Tart and lemony finish. Fairly balanced and pretty smooth.

UXO (1454) - CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Appearance: slightly hazy pale straw with two fat fingers of fluffy white head, good retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tart citrus, banana, wheat, wood, barnyard funk. (9/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-low bitter, moderate-high tart, light funk. (9/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, mildly warming spicy and funky finish. (4/5) Typical JP head that threatens to explode completely out of control unless poured ridiculously gently - which I did. Iím on to you, JP! A lovely tart saison/wild/sour/whatever, with nicely balanced tones of citrus, wheat, wood, and barnyard funk. (17/20)

Pours a golden mahogany brown with fluffy head. Aromas of fruit, funk, and some woody notes. Flavors of tart fruit, some woody character and some brett like finish.
