Bottle. Golden in color with a small white head. Earthy, leather, herbs and green leafs in aroma. Lemon and mild stable too. Fruity citrus, mild grassyness and notes of spicy yeastyness in taste. Subtle funky and almost sour notes in finish. A bit thin, but decent though.

5/VII/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. from Biernavigatie (webshop, NL) @ RBBSG III (Gent) - BB: n/a (2014-748)
Clear deep orange beer, creamy white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: spicy coriander touch, bit wild, fruity touch, melons, lots of vanana. MFok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, European hop character, bit metallic, dairy touch, little sour, citric. Aftertaste: yeasty, little fruity, dry bitterness, green banana, metallic, bitter yeast. Very drinkable, cool concept. :p

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Rogue Beard Beer) Bottle 650 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5.7% according to the importerís sticker on the bottle.
Deep golden orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a small and a bit thin head, off-white in colour, with okay retention. Light lacing around the glass.
Aroma is fruity, with peaches and apricots, some sweet malts too, not different than other belgian ales.
Taste is fruity too, the same peachy notes, apricots, wheat, an a nice refreshing sourness on the finish, nothing extreme but itís there. Mildly bitter aftertaste with good duration.
Medium thin body, lively carbonation. Quite dry palate.
Good beer but other than the story behind it, nothing too special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dense & fine, just yellowish head, quite stable over hazy golden beer with very lively carbonation. Sourish nose, wild yeast indeed. Esters, as pineapple or citrus, but also vegetables (celery, rhubarb,...) Toasted, sweetish, recooled ghee, with a bitterish vegetable streak. Much less citrus or other fruity notes in the flavour, but the acidity remains - lactic, maybe treshold acetic. Warming up, bitterish (root)spices. Titillating, spritzy MF; feels highly attenuated, rather light body hence. Beard or not, though this is not at all a bad sour, its complexity pales compared to the simplest unfiltered gueuze.

Brown orange transparent beer with a weak head. Citric yeasty smell, subtle hoppy sweetness.
Nicely balanced between bitterness and sourness, subtly sweet citric.
Dry astringent finish. Salty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Słaby aromat, nieco owocowości i to tyle. Po ogrzaniu wyszedł bardzo przyjemny, kwiatowo - miodowy aromat wskazujący na utlenienie. W smaku jest już znacznie lepiej, jest sporo dzikości, kwasek, wyraźne posmaki winogronowe, spora słodowość z akcentami brzoskwini. Finisz słodko - kwaśny, długi i przyjemny. Udane piwo, z silniejszym aromatem byłoby dużo lepsze.

Visually, it looks like a standard pale ale. Hazy, tinge of orange, nice head. Aroma is fruity. Not a ton of presence from the hops or malt, which is expected. Back off on those to make the star of this beer, the yeast, shine through. And actually, it doesnít taste as funky as expected. Slightly sour finish. You could easily pass this off as a Belgian Pale Ale.
Maybe famous because of the novelty, but I think itís pretty good.

Well, apparently his beard tastes like a hoppy belgian beer, with a slight fresh sourness.

Pours a hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, yeast and citrus. Taste is yeasty leading to moderate hop finish. Not bad.
