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...

Love the idea this came from a beard! Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Nice fruity aroma with a very clean mouthfeel. Tastes has some fruit/yeasty undertones. Overall a good easy drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RCx240 (123) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color, off white head. Aroma of orange zest, coriander. Taste is sweet, with notes of molasses. Underlying citrus notes throughout, finishing with lingering notes of coriander. Very soft carbonation, creamy texture. Very unique beer, worth trying.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle. Golden and frothy with a definitive funk, as I supposed one should only expect from such a concoction. There’s a hint of orange rind, too. (#6006, 7/19/2015)

The name of the beer along with the fact that it was made the beard yeast meant that I has to try it. This is an absolutely delicious beer! It tastes like a fine Belgian! Respect the beard!

czar (5839) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
sample at mondial de la bière 2015 - mtl. hazy very light golden with a small creamy white cap offering some retention and lacing. spicy toasted maltiness - very light buttery caramel, some surprising fruity lagering notes, clean moreover; woodsy, citrusy, some curious belgian angles though. average carbonation - bit of foam, light body - slightly watery; light woodsy astringent and fruity-grassy finish. interestingly not so boring. this MAY be a unique and perhaps a new strain, but it does not necessarily have a great future ahead - not transcendant that is, if not only symbolic..

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a mostly fading off white head. Aroma of plum, toffee, spice, orange, very sweet. Taste is of orange, plum, pear, brown sugar. Medium carbonation, oily, very sweet - a desert beer.
