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.

crackedmachine (479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012 Pours a beautiful cloudy hay-yellow. Fizzy with a plentiful white head. Aroma is mild, slightly lemony with a bit of yeast. Flavor is a nice mix of semi-tart fruitiness, some spicy undertones, and a hint of clove. Light and lively palate. Quite refreshing. A nice summer beer, a favorite for sipping in my backyard.

madvike (3229) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2009
On tap @ The Malt House - Another fine beer from JP, though not their best. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Smells funky and sour, with a little wheat and citrus. Taste is wheat with a grapefruit sour and a bitter hop finish. Its smooth and medium bodied, and pretty easy drinking. I couldnt drink a ton of this because of the sourness, but popping a bottle and sharing with the wife over dinner would be just about right.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle at BCTC 2009: Very cloudy golden with a fading white head. Wheaty yeasty aroma with a touch of lemon and some dry phenolics. Crisp body with a dry lemony flavor- slightly tart with some late minerally yeast notes. Crisp and tart. A nice session.

BCTC. Pours a murky and milky yellow with a medium white head. Light citrus and spice on the nose. Seems like the perfect beer for sitting on the porch and drinking. Nice crisp lemony finish.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Slightly pale yellow pour with a frothy white head. The aroma is subtle banana and spice with some hay, lemon, and the classic JP funk, but much more subdued than any of their other beers. Very bright and light citrus with some pepperiness, clove and banana and a little buttery on the finish. The body is somewhat creamy with lots of carbonation.

Batch 315/316

9/10/2008: Jolly Pumpkin Weizen Bam has some JP funk that flattens out somewhat over the course of the bottle. The flavir is sour and yeasty with not very much wheatiness. There is a slightly amount of spice and white wine along with a touch of bittnerness in the finish. The beer pours a very pale straw, almost white color and is hazy with a foamy white head forming after the pour. It has a lively palate. overall this must e one of their lightest offerings. I was expeting more. This is more like Bam Biere Light.

750 ml. shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #127 for this beer.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Bottle shared with and thanks to xnoxhatex! Batch #399/400. Pours a slightly hazy glowing yellow/golden with a fantastic fine frothy white head. Im already falling in-love. Crazy fruity bright lemony funky aroma with some interesting hints of aromatic tropical fruits like mango/peach and sweet banana.... love it. As usual per JP, flavor is also a bit lighter than aroma, dry with nicely accentuated nuances, slightly grainy at first, smooth tart banana, fruity, touch of alcohol, peach, lemon, funk, wonderful! Crisp light body, a bit chalky, great carbonation, softly fizzy. I would have this on tap at all times if I could.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2009
750ml bottle, blue cap. Pours a very bright yellow., typical JP tall foamy white head. Very distinct aroma of JP yeast. Barnyard, straw, bretty-funk. Also some tropical zest and lemonade smells. Flavor is very tart, like lemonade. There is a hint of wheat. i was not expecting a sour. as a matter of fact I was expecting a Weizen Bock. A sour German Hefe? It drink pretty good. Finishes very dry, with a touch of wood tannins. Refeshing. very light bodied.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle from Sicilianos in Grand Rapids, MI. Hazy straw color with creamy medium white head. Aroma is oaky, JP yeast, lemon, tropical fruit, a little sour, brett and a good amount of funk with barnyard. Flavor is lemon, orange and some other citrus, peaches, a little grain, brett, oak, jp yeast, dryer. Light, almost watery body with light carbonation. Very great, another amazing beer from JP, the only complaint from me is the body really.
