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...

Tried at Stockholm Beer And Whiskey festival. Bottled. Like most Rouge beers a good stable brew that doesn’t really blow me away though.

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014
On tap at the Kings Arms Bethnal Green. Clear gold lasting white head. Some strong peachy esters. It’s a decent interpretation but like all Rogue beers its turned up to 100. Hoppy on the finish. Decent

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle sample at tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Levi. Clear golden with an off-white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with spicy notes, a funky hint and light candy-ish notes. Sweetish flavor with fruits, yeast, malt and a drier and slightly spicy finish. Medium-bodied.

Light aroma of stone fruit. Taste of peaches, stone fruit and grass with a nice hop balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear orange yellow in color... Aroma of Belgian candi sugar, citrus fruits... Flavor is smooth, creamy golden malts, light yeast on finish... Nothing terribly exciting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Farm ale like in flavor. Belgian farm ale is best way to describe this. I actually had an allergic reaction to this beer. Made my throat scratchy. Some belgian yeast do this... this would be the same for me. Nice in flavor and easy drinking for ABV.

(bottle - 22 oz) Been looking forward to this one for a while. Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Mild aroma but had definite hints of spice and yeast. Lightly fruity flavor with a spicy Belgian yeast taste and a light fruit sweetness at the finish. Really nice. I’d drink it again if I saw it.

Bottle. A friend of mine got me one of these because I have a beard. Some people think It’s gross, I think it’s genus. Poured pale golden with a white head. I didn’t get much aroma but it was a little sweet and funky. It had a bready feel and a slightly fruity sweetness to it. I would definitely drink this again.

Bomber. Pours a hazy gold color with a thin fizzy white head. Aromas of grain, Belgian yeast, and lemon. Taste follows suit with some dry/sourness on the finish. Not nearly as fun as the story.
