In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Jolly Pumpkin Brewery. It is their Bam Noire Dark Farmhouse Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery. Let us get into this dark saison ale.
It has a clear dark reddish color with a white constant head. The aroma has a dark fruit to farm like notes. The taste has a lemon like notes that is a little tart. It has a tart to sour like aftertaste. It is kind of drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.jollypumpkin.com):
Style: Dark Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 4.5 IBUs: 24
Available: Year Round
Dark, smooth and delicious. Aromas of worn leather and cool autumn nights. Notes of sweet plum and toasted raisin, hints of coffee and cacao. Lingering tart and refreshing finish.

Ending, I am not a huge fan of Jolly Pumpkin. In most cases, it is the cost of the beer that turns me off. They are great ales. I love the liquid. Meijer had this beer on sale for half of the price. I was sold. It is different. I love Saison ales but not a fan of dark Saisons. This one was really good beer. They did a great job. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
