COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of Bam's brown eyes is, in fact, black. When mischief reigns supreme, it positively glows. Dedicated to the dark side; smooth, dark, incredibly delicious as only a Jack Russell with bat wings can be.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle (750ml). At 2nd Annual Summer Saison Tasting - blankboys bottle. Deep murky amber with a solid frothy beige head - just a massive flock of floaties in it (down from 4/5 due to execess floaties). Sweet toasty caramel aroma, but floral, spicy and herbal - really appealing. The taste seems a little less balanced - less malt body, more bitter spice, and an odd celery note that nobody else got in their sample - thick bodied, complex for sure, and dry in the finish - had an odd aroma/taste differential.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours a brown orange hazy body and a moderate head. Aroma and flavor is funky sweet malt, some cherries, wood, and that traditional jp sour funk.

sebletitje (9645) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2008
Totally love this oaky taste, so similar to the Rodenbach Grand Cru. It takes some getting used to it, a beer that you learn to love and appreciate. Batch 262/263, color dark amber, roasty and smoky. Always amazed by their quality.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Batch 258,259. The beer pours to a dark rustic amber body with a light creamy off-beige head. The aroma is sour and funky and smells almost exactly like the regular Bam Biere. Not as punchy, however. The sour funky saison components hit up front with a dry stout backend. The beer finishes with a strong dry roasted malt. Dry palate. This ones a let down that really didnt work.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Body-big thick foamy beige head on top of a dark hazy iced tea body. Nose-buttery, light wood, spirits, apple skins, tea, powdery, old wood. Taste-cantaloupe rind, coffee grounds, medium tannins, Chardonnay barrel, beach, dry, light unsweet dark fruits, dry wood and white wine dominates. Its a mix of fruit from the esters, wood, yeast, and herbal tea like tannins. Enjoyable and very drinkable, but Jolly Pumpkin sets their bay very high and this beer just barley brushes up against that bar.

bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle, batch 262, 263 from Bevmo La Jolla. Poursa hazy ruby pour with medium beige head, lacing. Also, as I noticed later on, a nice chunk of yeast floating on the bottom. Aroma is tart cherries, raspberries, mild wild yeast notes with a touch of mustiness. Flavor has tart-sour fruitiness - berries, light citrus. Slight medicine undertones, light herbal bitterness throughout. Finish has bright hoppiness, bitterness and lingering vinuous fruitiness. Mellow, light mouthfeel - maybe even a little too light. Sourness coupled with bitterness a very nice combo in this very interesting brew.

demitriustown (1188) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2008
750 ml bottle: An awesome sour apple, sweet, yeast, a little bit of caramel malt and some fruit undertones. Appearance is a deep dark reddish brown with a thick tan head that lingers for a while. Taste is subtle but very refreshing. The notes in the aroma dont really pop. Nice and tart with some lingering yeast. Palate is nicely carbonated, lip feel is bubbly, mouth feel is light with a lightly malty aftertaste. Overall, Its pretty good stuff. Not as good as the regular Bam or the ES bam IMHO. Cheers!

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 bottle shared at tasting. Pours a muddy chocolate brown with no head. Smell is fresh, tart, and fruity vinegar, and cherries. Taste is mild, dusty, and lightly funky with very faint tart fruity dark flavors. Bubbly mouthfeel, light, and mildly flavored compared to the nose again. Decent.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle shared by Blake. Dark brown-red body. The aroma yields unripe raspberries and cocoa powder. The roasted malt really doesnt work with the citric, tart bam bier base. Its a nice beer but Id rather have the standard edition.
