COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beard beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maierís beard. No need to freak out, brewers have used wild yeasts in beer making for centuries. John has had the same old growth beard since 1978 and for over 15,000 brews, so it is no great surprise that a natural yeast ideal for brewing was discovered in his beard. What does bread beer taste like? try it, we think youíll be surprised...

Surprisingly average in every way. I was expecting something more unique being a wild ale. Decent & certainly drinkable but nothing memorable.

Emeister84 (866) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Aromas of soft fruit, apple, pear, yeasty esters, and some farmy funk. Clear dark gold with a fading white head. Off-dry, savory, fruity, and a little funky. Soft, smooth, light-medium bodied.

Iím not going to lie, I was a bit scared to try this but it was great. A little fruity, quite smooth, I like it.

Pours sparkling amber with a thick, creamy white head with good retention. Fruity yeast aromas. Decent yeasty flavor with some citrus and bready notes. Overall a serviceable, if unremarkable, Belgian style ale. As a bearded dude, I at least appreciate the idea.

Hazy deep gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with a trailing minerally crisp bite. Wheaty malt, light malt cream. Light dry citric orange and lemon. Semi dry finish. Comes over as an okay wheat beer.

11/23/13. 22oz bottle thanks to Brent! Estery aroma, plenty of banana and cream, hints of citrus. Banana flavor as well, estery, some hefe or Belgian aspects. Touches of citrus and biscuity malt. Meh.

rdixon77 (630) - Georgia, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Sort of boring Belgian style. I was hoping for something more fun. Gold pour. Nose of clove and bread yeast. Taste added some citrus and biscuit. Mouthfeel was lively. Meh.

Bomber. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up white pepper, cloves, and lemon zest over light bready malts and some darker sugars I couldnít quite place.. didnít seem all that cohesive. The flavor found lightly syrupy honey and bready malts at the core, with lemon zest, cloves, and a bit of pepper around.. a few too many residual sugars along with Belgian-y yeast notes on the finish (didnít know John was Belgian). Lighter-bodied with high-ish carbonation on the palate.. a touch cloying at times, but otherwise it flowed smoothly.. creamy carbonation.. not bad.

650 ml bottle. Pours an orange/gold with light head. Aromas of oranges, resin, and a little brett. Flavor is light resin and malt; maybe a bit of spice. Nothing special other than the concept.
