COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beard beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier’s 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 beard beer taste like? try it, we think you’ll be surprised...

bomber Appearance:Medium amber with a fullfoamyhead (2 fngers) light lacing. Aroma: light yeast, funk, lemon, herbs and some esters Taste: Quite sweet, sour esters, ripe fruits.. floral hops, light funkyness, The finish is very sweet radler lemon lemonade like.Allthough there is a bit more going on.Depending on the amount of air different tastesof the palates come more forward Perfect medium body and slightly below average carbonation. Ignoring the bad Rogue marketting gimmick. Which will divide it mostly in 2 groups, People who say disgusting and who say great find. In the end it’s just another yeast, which was fully cultured. (So it just sounds fancy marketing wise.). What remains is a ok,solid brew., but relying mostly on the gimmick to increase the sales.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Medium amber with a full bubbly head cover, a sheet of lace. Taste is straight malt that adds bitter herbs and hay, tobacco, maybe some cloves, maybe some coriander. For so much going on, the taste is muted, even a little thin. Okay, not memorable.

Patrickctenchi (4627) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle: Hazy, gold...with a tall, parchment coloured head. Slightly lemony, funky aroma. Taste is white fruits, peppery.....saison-like....sweet and Belgian leaning. Really quite good.... Rogue certainly does get a bit out there......pretty good job, though...once you get past the mental bit.

Macegan75 (744) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Draft at Uno’s. Pours clear tan with head that fades quickly. Nose is yeasty with mild funk. First sip is more like a Belgian pale or dark saison than wild ale. Tastes like brett and sacro with pale malt and lemon grass finish is balanced.

Bottle. Lemon and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Light lemon, barley malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Pleasant - if you can get past the beard thing.
