Two weekends ago we went into Boston to have dinner with our friends Adam and Elina. Elina cooked us a yummy vegan dinner (Thanks Elina!!). At the time I was in the beginning stages of my week-long misery. The abdominal pain was at a manageable level still and I was able to enjoy myself.
Adam was in possession of a bottle of Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere – a gift from Elina back at Christmas time. We agreed that the bottle shouldn’t have to wait any longer to be enjoyed, and we cracked it open.
The brew is a farmhouse ale, but frankly tastes nothing like any farmhouse ale I’ve ever had. Jolly Pumpkin has a reputation for producing sour beer, so it came as no surprise to me when we found Bam Biere to be significantly tart. It’s got a light, light mouth-feel (finishing almost watery) and a dry aftertaste.
It’s a delicious beer in its own right, although neither Adam or I would drink more than a couple of glasses of the stuff.
