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.

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.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2009
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.

malrubius (2725) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 27, 2009
On tap at the Pony. Very very pale golden, like a hazy Bud Light, with small head. Mild tangy funk tart banana aroma. Very light tangy wheat funky water. Nice hint of flavor, but it seemed to have only a hint. Way too light and watery (and it was my first beer of the day).

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle from the Sams in Downers Grove, Illinois: I had to wait a long while to drink this beer, since its head-to-body ratio was ten-to-one with even a careful pouring. Once one could see any body under the foamy white head, it was a very pale milky yellow and looked more like a Witbier. The aroma was fresh sliced bananas with a lemony funkiness to it and had no hefeweizen spiciness. The flavor was very lemony with some soured wheat malt and, again, no hefeweizen spiciness or even banana taste. Had I not known that this was from a brewer that had to throw "wild" yeast in Absolutely Everything, I probably wouldve drain poured it as an infected hefeweizen. Its an interesting, if not wholly satisfying, drink that probably should be listed under another category, cause "German Hefeweizen" it aint.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2009
750ml - Aroma tells me "this is a Jolly Pumpkin beer" which always gets me excited. Funky sour with spicy yeast, banana and clove. Flavor doesnt quite live up to the aroma. It still has the spicy yeast, banana and clove. Missing the funk. Palate is creamy with a crisp tart finish. Another winner from JP.

Golden color with a small head. Aroma is sour, citrus and a hint of spice and yeast. Flavor if bright and citrus a little sour and pretty good.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Cask. Pours a golden body with a light white head. Sweet fruity wheat notes with a light sour lemongrass and hints of banana bubblegum spices. Thin and session able. Good call.
