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 bread beer taste like? try it, we think you’ll be surprised...

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle - compliments of Matt Lindley: Almost clear gold color with not much head. Mild banana aroma with slight rubber notes. Yeasty flavors but not too over the top. Easy to drink.

Citrusy and a little yeasty. Thankfully not too Belgian - i.e. no hint of Brett. Sweet notes of dried fruit and caramel from the malt. Solid stuff.

22 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have a mild to moderate fruity character, grass, yeast, bready, only light Belgian character, sweet malts; not much to get excited about.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - golden amber with a nice head. Nose - lemon yoghurt. Taste - lemon sorbet with a creamy and malty backdrop. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - nice palate if less exciting in its aroma and taste.

Tmoney99 (11066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy dark golden color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus yeast flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would not quickly recommend this to a friend.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a cloudy goldenrod color with a small white head. Aroma of grass, citrus rind, pale and sweet and bready malts, sawdust, and sweetened cereal. The flavor is the same - there isn’t a ton of Belgian character here, interestingly enough. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, dry, malty mouthfeel. Not that Belgian, not that beardy. Fine by me.

22oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Shared with local raters. Hazy golden orange color. Thin white head. Dots and bits of lace. Musty orange citrus in the nose, some belgian-type yeast. Kind of spicy, but mild overall. Hoppy, citrusy-rindy, kind of spicy, some belgian yeast. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lightly soft carbonation, lightly slick finish. Moderate sweet taste, lightly zesty, light bitterness. Decent kind of hoppy citrusy belgian ale.

TBone (12991) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle at SBWF2014. Clear amber color, medium-sized white head. Metallic, grainy malty aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Flavor is fruity, a bit metallic and even sweetish. A bit lame. The story is better.
