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 beard beer taste like? try it, we think youíll be surprised...

Bomber bottle. Very nice Belgian aroma. Quite clear dark golden color, with a white head of tight bubbles, initially thick when poured. Mostly average taste, like a Belgian pale ale. Medium bodied. Overall a good beer, but nothing to go out of your way to get.

Bottle: The aroma is pretty minimal...maybe some sweet lemon and grass...but itís barely there. It pours a hazy orange with with two finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with light sweet cereal grains. The finish has light apple, grass, and faint grain. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I donít like the apple flavors and I donít understand what the goal was here. Itís not very good.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Bottle: Super cloudy, golden-orange buddy with a thick bubbled, off-white head. Smell is almost nonexistent. Faint musty cotton? Mild lemon? Weird plastic notes. Taste is plasticy, full of shitty cotton, mold, what the fuck is this crap. Fuck Rogue. This shit is fucken repugnant. They should have their goddamn brewing license revoked for putting this goddamn garbage juice on shelves. Son of a motherfucken bitch.

Maybe my love of facial hair makes me biased, or maybe itís my love of sour beers, but this is a home run. Wonderful sour aroma without the acidic smell. Orange pour with a long lasting white head. Taste is great, not really sour but funky with a long complex aftertaste. Taste is bretty, yeasty, really good.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 22oz bottle picked up at Albertsons in Boise
Pours slightly cloudy golden with a small off-white head, spotty lacing. Aroma of ripe fruit, Belgian yeast and herbal. Taste is tart, fruity, herbal, grains and oranges, spicy
I footbalmed this about half way through and changed my original rating. The warmer this gets the sweeter it gets. Reminds me of a cheap lager.

Bottled. Very pale, aroma is soar but pleasant and clear for such kind of experiment. Taste is really friendly not too soar no catty or cheese, close to lambic or clear wild belgian ale. Interesting and refreshing.

Pours a copper colour. Nice aromas of sweet bread and Belgian yeast. Similar flavours. A bit of a tang at the end. Pretty decent stuff.

Bottle from Johnís. Pale yellow pour. Subtle yeastiness. Slight sweet and fruitiness. Itís a nice creamy body, but so-so flavors.
