Batch 521/522, Bottled 3-11-2010.
Pours a very big, frothy head. Color is a cloudy amber. Smell is a bit sour.
First sip is a bit more earthy than what I expected it to be. The foam has a completely different quality of hops than what exists in the beer. Then again, the head didn't have any of the wild characteristics that the body does.
A wild, hoppy beer. Me gusta.

This pours a hazy golden brown tea color.
There’s a lightly tart aroma with notes of dark cherries on it.
I get some more dark cherries as I sip, with a light sourdough funk rounding it out. There’s a tart finish and a light body. Tasty and delicate.

this is the kind of wild ale i would drink all day every day. the best of the bam incarnations i think, more hoppy, reminds me of mikkeller ak alive, that funky, so darn good. only lightly hazy amber color liquid with more than an inch of pearly white head as light as a feather and lasting for the whole drink. on tap at hops and pie, i love their beer program. aromas of farmhouse funk and citrusy hops, its a reall cool and uncommon combination. flavors of brett in all its glory mingle with the hops, which only add a little bitterness but a ton of oomph to a beer as sessionable as this one. the yeast and funk combo here is pure glory, light and bright, and the mouthfeel is incredibly dry, with some peppery spice and a gorgeous hop bouquet mixing with the brett. complex and supremely drinkable at under 5% abv. i wish i had a mainline of this, i would never get bored. some of the most impressive stuff in a beautiful catalog from jolly pumpkin.
