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.

Pretty good. Pours light yellow with a large head. Has the typical JP sourness. Not bad.

750 ml bottle - batch 411/412; thanks to grownfool for the trade; pours straw gold, clear with foamy white head fading quickly; definite tarty funk on the nose with some lemons, sour apple, pears and sweet grains; fizzy mouth feel with light texture; lemons, cloves, light spice; quite dry with tangy light fruit; JP is never boring and it isnt a quite homerun, but tasty and interesting

Pours pale gold into a tulip. Bright white fluffy head with good retention recedes leaving spotty spiders. Orange, pear and apple funk aromas. Crisp sour apple upfront flattening out into a lasting marshmallow wheat finish. Im not getting any hefe...

ilovedarkbeer (2734) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Pours a deep straw color with a large foamy white head. Lemon, wheat, yarn, canned pineapple, hints of oak, and little spice. Faint bit of sourness. Mouthfeel is extremely lively and somewhat acidic. Medium length finish. Very enjoyable. I was expecting something funkier and also, this missing that rubber element I like in hefes. Despite all of that this is still delicious.

Nice brett aroma. Taste is tart and apple. Yeast is driving everything here. Wheat hidden under much of the yeast and I like that. Some Chardonay lingers.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Bottle from Perrys @ Livermore. I really like this one. Right off the bat theres some brett funkiness in the nose and aroma. Nose is said brett, and must. Pours a cloudy light straw yellow with lots of head. Flavor is a nice refreshing sour and clean experience, with notes of brett, grass, lemon, and wheat. Finishes clean, and dry.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2009
750ml Bottle: Aroma of wheat, lemon, light grass, light clove, and hints of Brett and funk. Poured yellow/flaxen in color with a medium-sized, rocky, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Flavor is light to medium tart. Tastes of citrus, wheat, tart fruit, light Brett, yeast, slight banana, slight funk, and some spices. Medium body. Tingly texture. Lively carbonation. Funk, wheat, and Brett finish is ever so slightly dry. Not really a Hefeweizen, but still nice.

FoBAB tasting 2009. Bottle beer. Pours a bright hazy yellow with a thick and foamy bright white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is lemon, wheat, straw, spice, some mild sweetness. Flavor is citrusy and tangy with predominately lemon, wheat and spice flavors. Generally light-bodied with a clean citrus finish.
