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...

I can’t place the aroma. Nothing real special. Color is a cloudy orange-ish color with a lasting offwhite lacing. Taste is a bit citrus fruity and floral. Some hops there. I believe some spice too. There is a lasting tingle on the tip of the tongue which I oddly find pleasant. Overall this is a unique beer in concept, and it is a drinkable beer - but it is a type you try for the uniqueness and not one that will be bought again. If it was given to me, yes, I will drink it any time. There are just better beers out there for the price.

czar (5568) - 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..

Yellow orange body, with a frothy white head. This beer has an aroma of citrus and yeast with a taste that matches with a overall sweetness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

66cl bottle. Hazy light brown pour with medium, thick head, lots of lacing. Aromas of stale bread, metal and earth. Taste is weak, low on bitterness, small sweetness. Low carbonation, oily palate. Aftertaste is malty and short. Not particulary good, but drinkable.

Lowe1983 (1385) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is light of citrus hops with some wild yeast aroma and some lemon. Flavor is similar with mostly the citrus and lemon coming out. I wasn’t sure what to think of this brew but I was somewhat pleased.
