Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales Bam Bière
What the brewers say
An artisan farmhouse ale that is golden, naturally cloudy, bottle conditioned, and dry-hopped for a perfectly refreshing balance of spicy malts, hops, and yeast.
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Strong, sharply phenolic Brett character. Funky, tannic notes, sweet pineapple citrus, and some peppery, earthy floral notes. Light smokiness, earthiness, and woody notes are apparent. Tangy sour character with a very earthy background.”
Flavor: “Brettanomyces funk and bright tartness add complexity to the base saison. Medium, almost husky, grain-malt profile with strong, fruity acidity. No hop flavor. Very dry finish and highly carbonated.”
Overall: “A very refreshing, complex Brett character complements and doesn’t overpower a great saison. An excellent Brett beer with bright acidity and a classic, super-dry finish. A great beer to pair with food.”
