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...

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

b3shine (5974) - Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells semi-sweet with notes of what seem like Belgian yeast alongside some mild clove. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Of touch of hoppy bitterness. Not bad, but gimmicky and underwhelming.

rosenbergh (7511) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2015
22 oz bottle. Courtesy of olio. Cheers! Cloudy golden colour with a tiny off-white head. Belgian yeast, hops, mild bitterness and spices in the aroma. Hops, mild bitterness, mild yeast, spices and malt in the flavour. Quite nice yet one-dimensional and easy American Belgian style brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

65 cl bottle @ rosenbergh. BBE 04/2015 (importer sticker)
Pours golden color with a large head. Quite spicy aroma, some hops, yeast and some orange. Fruity flavor, some mild hoppy notes, somewhat sweet malts and yeast. Pleasant mouth feel, a bit too simple though.

kraddel (3730) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle . Pours clear blonde / light orange . OK white head . Smell is sweet , malts , bit fruity ( banana , oranges ) . Slightly soapy , Taste is sharp bitter, malty back . Sugar , as wel as sweetness from malts . No wild yeast to be expected ( no brett or anything alike ) Which I would expect , based on the story ..( if that is real ) Appart from the story / idea behin this, it tastes a bit different, yet a lot like a common Belgian blonde beer. As always , im not the biggest fan of these, yet I dont dislike them either .
