Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales "Bam Biere" Farmhouse Ale, Michigan 750ml

SKU #1056184 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a refreshing saison, showing a cloudy golden color and a frothy off-white head. Tiny flecks of yeasty goodness are suspended in the glass thanks to the brew being bottle conditioned. The nose is gorgeous: notes of citrus rind, dried stone fruit (think apricot and mango), coriander and a prominent aroma of stable. The mouth has vibrant acidity and carbonation, leading into flavors of pepper, lime, grass-filled earthiness and tart green plum.  (9/ 2009)

K&L Notes

This artisan farmhouse ale is golden, with a naturally cloudy appearance. It's bottle conditioned and dry-hopped for a refreshing balance of spicy malts, hops and yeast.

The Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales "Bam Biere" is one of the best work horse beers out there. Made in the style of a Saison this is one of the best interpretations coming out of the US right now. With its yeasty, fruity nose of peach, apricot, fresh bread dough, tangerine and a pinch of clove this is about as traditional as Saison gets. Lightweight on the palate but full of flavor the beer displays flavors of brewerís yeast, fried plantains, wet earth, savory grassy tones and a bit of drying hoppiness in the finish. The sweet/bitter interplay here is perfect, keeping the beer from ever getting out of balance or cloying white the understated fruitiness builds complexity as it goes. Big time Boosh!
