L: Pours hazy amber under a 2” white foam cap that grips the side of the glass.
S: Has a lemony, tart, light funk aroma that reminds me of Orval.
T: Big lemony citrusy tartness balanced by an assertive hop bitter emphasis. The hop bitterness masks some of the barnyard funk.
F: Soft in the mouth yet tart, medium light body and medium high carbonation.
O: Tart, dry and refreshing with an assertive bitterness.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 14/10/12

A hazy golden peach with a a hands width of foam, I got about a 1 to 3 ration of liquid to foam, I still have more foam at the bottom of the glass then I had liquid when I poured it. the massive soapy head ends up as a pencil top eraser like island that pivots like a bobble bead doll when I tilt the glass.

Edit- I'm bumping this one up to perfect, my third pour left me with what can only be understood by someone who's gone down the Great Ocean Road outside Melbourne and seen London Bridge before it fell into the sea. my first bridge of foam crossing from one side of the glass to the other, NEAT!!

S holy funk batman, some tea bag herbal notes with some citric and leafy hops but the Brett is firmly in charge and I didn't see it coming, Beers this funky normally have a little more going on other then the funk, don't get me wrong though I'm enjoying this one

T more of the same really, funky herbal notes and leafy almost grassy dried hay come out, I want to say soapy but it just might be all the foam filling my mind with suds

M a small sip explodes instantly upon entering the mouth, pretty lively even for the style, very airy and foamy with a little grittiness left behind with a herbal tea leaf funk aftertaste

O for some reason I wasn't expecting a a funk bomb and I'm surprised how simple but funky this one is. I'm amazed this one didn't explode when I opened it with how carbonated it is, respectable beer though don't get me wrong

Unexpected qualities, mostly a good thing, something you could easily session but you might win a burping contest along the way. very funky and heavily carbonated low alc% brew, worth a shot for sure

Batch 267, 268. Warning: Slow gusher alert. It didn't quite go crazy after the cap was popped, but I wouldn't leave it unattended either.
Clear burnt orange with a solid cap of fine beige bubbles. Good retention, aided by constantly surfacing bubbles, with some moderately sticky lacing. JP funk hits the nose right away, a combination of tartness and acidity, almost like salt and vinegar chips, but much more mellow. Earthy berries and grass, this is hoppier than the regular bam, but it seems like the hops have faded somewhat compared to other reviews of the same batches earlier in the year. Still, very nicely balanced on the nose. The flavour was... everything in the aroma, plus more. Hops were much more pronounced, leafy and grassy with a slight mint character in the finish, quite floral, and the bitterness was sturdy and forceful. This worked well with the light acidity, keeping the palate quite clean. Less fruity than the aroma with just a hint of the berry tartness I expected based on the smell. Light bodied, very dry, with plenty of carbonation that kept the texture light and airy. What can I say, I like just about everything JP puts out. My only (minor) issue was the dryness seemed to work against this beer, crowding out some of the flavour.

On tap pour at Barley House into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a caramel colored amber. Produced a nice cap of off-white foam. Good retention behind it too. Lots of lace left behind.

(S)- Wow, a big dry earthy floral; almost citrus-like aroma blast up front. Hints at a Brett funk in the far background.

(T)- Similar to the smell. A big dry earthy Brett funk up front with a subtle caramel-like sweetness.

(M)- Very funky, dry, and bitter. At the same time its actually almost a bit thin feeling; it totally drops off the palate.

(D)- An alright Saison. A bit one dimensional; heavy on the dry earthy Brett profile with little else going on.

Sampled at biegamans Summer Saison tasting, thanks to MDS for bringing this one.

Pours a hazy brownish amber, thin off white head forms, quickly drops to a thin ring, some lace spots on the glass. Smell is caramelized, some herbal hopping, floral, light citrus, bit of bready spiciness, tart fruit, nice, some light roasty malts. Taste is similar, caramel, some wood, herbal and lightly fruited, very toasty middle, a bit astringent and bitter in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, big bitterness, but very solid and drinkable. Thanks Mike!

Drank at Craft last Thursday. Pours a mixture of dark yellow and light amber with ample frothy head. Good zesty hop presence, not dry hopped ipa like, but hoppy nonetheless. Floral and mildly citrus.

Taste, hops didn't come through as much, bitterness definitely did, carbonation was up on this one. Very dry. Didn't come across anything I would call anything beyond very mildly funky or sour from this, at this point I was realizing I was having a very different beer from Jolly Pumpkin, but closer to par for everyone else. Didn't pick up really any brett from the beer. Was more like one of those imperial pilsners if anything.

At $9 a bottle, its not worth it.

Pours a very hazy medium copper with some orange tints. Initially a massive khaki-colored head that slowly settles down into a small foam cap and leaves a decent amount of lacing behind.

Aromas begin with some earthy, floral and citrus hops reminiscent of orange pith. Alongside this comes a good amount of rustic Farmhouse funk. Some toasted pale and bready malt in the background emerges as it warms.

The tastes follow the nose with the hops being a little little less pronounced. Main flavors are earth, Farmhouse yeast spice and funk and a bit of toasted Enlgish style bready malt.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to high amounts of carbonation. Finish has a solid dryness accompanying the funk, with a substantial body for much a low ABV beer; something I always greatly appreciate.

Overall this was very flavorful and complex; a lot going on and certainly enough to keep me occupied for half the bottle that I split with a friend during our Sushi BYO dinner.

Pours a lightly hazed burnt orangy/amber color with soft dense slightly off-white head. Scent is quite sweet, light fruity tartness, very earthy with grassy and piney notes, all backed by a solid barnyard funkyness. One of the bolder flavored farmhouse ales - full clea, lightly sweet malt profile, solid earthy hop profile, light fruityness - im getting notes of everything from orange to cherry. The funk on this is much bolder then others in the style and gives good charachter to the beer. Medium bodied, dry finnish. Overall a bold and well executed farmhouse ale.

On-tap (glad to see it finally here from JP) at the Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-brown color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving thick lacing.

Smells of light amounts of funk with bright and leafy hop aromas. Also present are very mild amounts of dry caramel malts.

Tastes good. Dry caramel malt flavors with a good deal of graininess kick things off. Very mild amounts of funk make their way into things midway through the sip before being drowned out by earthy hop flavors. The hops carry through to a solidly bitter finish that's very dry and mildly crisp.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with active carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this was an interesting beer however I wish the flavor profile more closely matched the nose. Not the best offering from JP but still worth a shot if you see it around.

Hmm, interesting idea: cross an esb with a tart saison. Technically well crafted, aesthetically doesn't quite work for me. Poured with fabulous huge, foamy, frothy, thick, cream colored head that just sits there and lots of lace. Color is an almost clear amber brown. Aroma is floral, yeast, hops, malt, sour. Flavor is like nose, but no sweetness at all, completely dry, sour/bitter. Body is good and carbonation for the style - I'm not sure. Finish is like flavor except has flash of nuttiness that helps and is fairly long. I'll finish this but don't want any more

A - Pours a hazy orange coppery color with a huge initial foamy head and lots of carbonation, eventually it does down and leaves a thick sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Aroma is mild lemon grass, lights herbs, and alot of funky sourness.

T - "Barnyard funk" is something I don't use very often and this beer definitely has that characteristic, in a big way. Tangy sour funk hits the tongue up front and causes the tongue to salivate in a big way. Not much malt underneath to speak of, spicy, and a little herbally. The spicy/herbal side does remind me of a Belgian style IPA, with the addition of a moderate citrus bitter finish that lingers with a dry brett-like finish.

M - This beer is too thin for my liking but considering the Saison style, that's how it should be.

O - This is a well brewed beer, enjoyable, and light bodied. I would love to see JP thicken this beer up a little and up the ABV.

A: Pours an amber/orange color. A small head forms and recedes to leave some patchy lace.
S: Funky barnyard and malty biscuit aromas. Some citrus and nice hop bitterness that is well balanced. Enjoyable.
T: Follows the nose. Funky biscuit malt. A bit tart. Very light citrus hops.
M/D: Medium bodied that is well carbonated. Kind of thin and watery. Not really a session beer for me, but it is not hard to drink at all.

A good saison. One I enjoyed and would recommend.

750 ml bottle (batch 280/281). Poured into my Meantime snifter, E.S. Bam is a hazy bronzed amber with a large bone colored head that is super tight and dense. Very slow to settle, the carbonation forms a mountain of foam rising up above the rest of the large head in the middle, lasting through the settling to the last sip. Very heavy lace. Wow, damn impressive! I was really worried this one would be a gusher. The first bottle I grabbed at the shop promptly burst (the glass broke with a muted dink) when I laid it on it's side in shop's the plastic hand held basket! I assumed the bugs had built up to strong, but this one didn't gush, or pour with excess froth...weird.

Smell is musty, slightly sweet caramel, toffee and raisins, with strong, spicy hop backbone. Not to bad, but very unusual for the style. Blindly, I'd guess English style IPA.

Taste is bone dry, not sweet, light funk and huge noble hop spice, with a bitter finish. I like the concept (I homebrew hoppy saisons myself), but I'm not in love with the hops they used here, which overpower the saison's underlying subtleties. Not bad, but not very exciting either, something about it just doesn't quite work out...much like Bam Noire, it pales to the original Bam.

Mouthfeel is is bubbly, but the specialty malts keep the body from being as thin and dry as regular Bam, although it's still very light and crisp.

Drinkability is ok, it's an easy drinker that's light in the belly and low in ABV. But the taste isn't that interesting, and gets a bit astringent after awhile.

pour is a dark hazy copper. Head is fluffy off white and lace left behind. The nose is nice, decent hop presence, citrusy and fruity with a nice citrusy Brett presence. The flavor falls of a bit, hops aren't quite there as much, Brett is still citrusy and nice but a hint of oxidation. Body is light and good carbonation.

Enjoyed on tap at Jolly Pumpkin's pub in Ann Arbor. ES Bam pours the color of liquid, molten copper - it's translucent, though doesn't exhibit anywhere near the clarity necessary to be called "clear". A crisp, beige-tinted head rests on hop; clunky and made of large bubbles, it perches up there for quite a while before finally reducing to a foamy skin.

When each of your beers (for the most part) is made with a similar fermenting, aging, and packaging process with the same types of equipment and in the same location, your beers will typically all carry a common denominator, though they may still all be completely different from an ingredient standpoint. Jolly Pumpkin knows this territory well, and ES Bam contains the same funky aroma that you could easily pick out of a line up of beers anywhere.

Musty barnyard, wet hay, and cheesecloth-y Brett are packed into the aroma. Enough dry oak to go around and remain prominent for the better half of the brew, too. The backdrop contains shades of pear-like tartness and a mildly leafy-herbal hop bill, but the funk is certainly the dominant character, here.

Surprisingly enough, the taste begins with an initial fruit sweetness and a faint tart twinge. Far from sour, mind you, and still not as tart as La Roja, Oro, or Bam Biere, but enough tartness to be notable. It's impressive how quickly that tartness is brush aside, however, for the gigantic wave of funk that would be soon to follow.

Mound after mound of funk gets heaped into the palate with each sip; horsey funk, cheesy funk, dry, old, musty, Brett-y funk, completely with a faint burst of pineapple and wet cork. I love funk as much as the next guy, but the sheer balance of this brew may be slightly out of kilter... It seems more like a different take on Bam Noire rather than Bam Biere. The bone dry, oak-ladden finish is commonplace for JP brews, and this one is no different.

The mouth is not bad, but neigh is it anything special. Crispy, slightly effervescent and possibly a little vapid on the palate, but isn't that to be expected for a 4.7% ABV farmhouse ale? Pretty quaffable on the grand scheme of things, but this is a bit lower on the list of beers I reach for when I'm at Jolly Pumpkin. The problem is that ES Bam has no unique qualities that would make me come back to it versus other JP beers, plain and simple.

$9.99 750ml bottle. I gave this a shot based upon good experience with bam biere and a disappointing experience with bam noire. This was the best bam in my opinion. Nice vinegar and dill smell. My friend said it smelled like pickle juice, nice! The flavor was grassy, oddly funky but not sour at all. It was very zesty and refreshing without really being spicy. I really couldn't discern the hop flavors but this was a very good beer. I went back a couple days later and bought another bottle which I promptly drank. This is good beer.

The color is a thick burnished copper, hazy and opaque. An off-white head is nearly two fingers tall and holds its form for a good while. Lacing is left on the glass in patches with plenty of consistency and quantity.
This is a pretty raw beer. Lots of earthiness and a spicy bite set the tone along with a pithiness to the lightly bitter element but also seeming to stem a bit from the funkiness and the tart elements. There's enough caramel to add some balance from sweetness along with a bit of citrus. There's lots green apple skin and some vinous, more grape-like character. Going into the flavor, the finish brings out some interesting notes, with something almost smoky but also a little metallic and slightly charred riding off the crackery-dry malts. Maybe a touch of a medicinal note lingering there?
The feel is pretty good but shifts a lot in an odd way. The crispness is tingly but comes in and out a bit, though smoothness, while not exactly creamy, is consistent. This is an extremely interesting beer and a unique take on Saisons.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange with an enormous, pillowy white head.

S: Aromas of lactic yeast, oak, must, pickle brine, unripened grapes, unripened pineapple, lemon rind, lime zest, and grapefruit fill the nose.

T: Notes of unripened pineapple, carambola, unripened grapes, green apple, lemon rind, grapefruit pith, and lime zest are underscored by notes of biscuit, oak, must, pickle brine, cider vinegar, sea salt, white pepper, chalk, and talc. The finish is extremely dry, crisp, and acidic with notes of citrus, biscuit, chalk, and vinegar.

M: Light-to-medium in body, chewy, and very dry. Carbonation is fairly intense. This ale is very drinkable, at least at first, but tends to dry out one's mouth completely.

O: This is an interesting ale that displays a ton of depth and complexity, but at the same time, it lacks drinkability and balance. For me, there is a point where sour ales simply become too vinegary, and this beer has more than reached that threshold. I can't say I wholeheartedly dislike E.S. Bam, but I also can't say that I would ever come back to it. In the end, this is not Jolly Pumpkin's best effort, but it is interesting nonetheless.

I wasn't a huge fan of Jolly Pumpkin's Bam Biere, and while I like this version more, I'm still not completely won over. I appreciate the idea. It's a refreshing and light saison that's very drinkable. The addition of the hops improves drinkability significantly for me over the original, but otherwise, it's a similar experience. The malt is light and muted. The flavor is mostly a dry sourness, which is pleasant but not terribly complex. On the other hand, I haven't tasted another beer quite like it outside of the Jolly Pumpkin lineup. I appreciate the fresh ideas that Jolly Pumpkin brings to the table, particularly for an American brewer working with sours and wilds and whatnot. It's always enjoyable to try a new beer from this brewery. Anyway, this beer would be most enjoyable in large quantity, but the ~$10 price tag is a tad steep for that, at least on a regular basis. It's a good beer; the hops provide just enough bite to ratchet up the drinkability.

Batch 267/268
Pours a deep red/ copper color with a big light tan head. In the aroma, small tartness, earthy, and small hop hints. In the taste, earthy, a small fruity tartness, and small hop presence up front. A bitter and a medium mouthfeel, and a small dry bitterness, and a green apple tartness in the aftertaste. Not a conventional ESB, nice green apple tartness, and a good hop presence. I don't think Jolly Pumpkin makes a bad beer.

Bottle to Oversize Wine Glass
750 ML, Capped

App- A medium yellow with some orange highlights. Huge lacing all over the glass. A nice giant 2 finger head as well.

Smell- A very unique yeasty, peppery, saison with a little bit of hop bitter as well.

Taste- This was very tasty and unique, the balance of almost 3 to 4 flavors was very well done. The yeasty and the pepper worked well with the softness.

Mouth- A very light bodied with a high carbonation and a peppery, funky after taste.

Drink- This was good. It's along the lines of being with a Fantome for making me say, damn this is different and very tasty. Next year, ill grab another one of this.

Batch 267, 268

E.S. Bam pours a caramel color that has a nice scarlet hue when backed by a little light. It's a little hazy and features a few yeast particles floating around. A very impressive tan head tops it off. It's over three fingers deep and leaves a substantial amount of sticky lace clinging to the glass. Very impressive.

The nose is a little weak. It could definitely use more strength. It's spicy and earthy initially. There's pepper and a mix of other spices I can't identify. There's some orange, lemon, and perhaps even plum fruit scents. Smells a little funky and grainy. I can't say that it smells like Brett, but is funky. The label suggests an infusion of more malts and hops than (Bam Biere), but I'm not appreciating either. To be fair, this bottle is over a year old now and I'm sure that the hops have faded to a large degree. Oooops. It's above average, but isn't stunning by any means. It's a little too weak and the elements don't seem to entirely mesh very well.

The flavor profile is pretty consistent with the nose. Pepper and other ancillary spices kick it off. They're not very strong, but warrant mention. It's a little fruity and features some lemon and light orange. I'm not getting any dark fruit here. It's definitely earthy and grassy throughout. A funky, yeasty flavor is noted and is rather prominent. It doesn't taste like Brett to me, but has a funky quality. There's some light malt sweetness and perhaps a floral hop flavor, but bother are faint. I'm sure the hops have fainted due (in part) to my procrastination. Perhaps I should've jumped on this one sooner. Nonetheless, the flavor never really comes together well and comes across as a few individual flavors rather than a medley. It's above average, but not quite good.

The body is light and not at all smooth. Carbonation is very active and doesn't work well at all here. The feel is very average and probably contributes to a few of this beer's issues. Drinkability is a little above average, but that's probably a little generous. The flavor's alright and it goes down easy.

E.S. Bam is disappointing at the end of the day. The nose could use some work, the flavor doesn't come together well, and it suffers from overcarbonation and a thin body. Now that I've gotten through all that, I certainly feel that the score is very generous. It needs work. Jolly Pumpkin has a nice run of disappointment going here. I'm hoping that one day (soon) I'll be blown away by one of their beers. Today is obviously not that day.

750 ml bottle, Batch 273,274.

Deep, slightly murky, dark copper with brassy edges. Tall, thick, rocky, bright light khaki head. Exquisite lacing. Perky, bright, citrus and evergreen hops on the nose. Some floral/herbal qualities as well. Shortbread cookie malt backbone with a cedar-y, sourish edge. The very welcome Jolly Pumpkin funk is there, but not overpowering.

Toasted malt and hop bitterness up front. Piny and citrusy, yet with an herbal, noble edge. Caramel and biscuit malt in the background, accented by tart cherry and lacto-sourness. Hints of wood, before a fresh citrus hop finish. The citrus from the hops and the tartness from the wild bugs work great together. Latent wisps of brown sugar malt at the very end. Moderate body with a refreshing, yet smooth feel.

Another terrific beer from JP! If this gets put in 6 packs I will drink it all summer (if not, I'll have to buy a keg!).
