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...

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.

Bottle @tasting. Aroma is light fruits, some dusty malt, hint of malt. Flavour is dry and fruity, light malt note, slight hint of funk. Nice and clean but nothing.

Bottle from street market in Portland, thanks to Jules. Pours clear yellow/golden with a thin white head that fades extremely fast. Aroma is fruity, sugar and yeasty. Some citrus, but faint and some liquorice. Taste is bitter with some sweetness. Definitely tastes like a Belgian Ale but it’s a lot more watery. Weak bodied lets this down.

Butelka 650ml. OCZY : piwo jest delikatnie zamglone o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest średniej wielkości o kolorze białym. NOS : piwo ma świeży aromat kwaśnej śmietany, moreli, mandarynki i skórki pomarańczy. Po wzburzeniu wyczuwam mocne aromaty ciasta, pieprzu, torfu i nasilający się aromat skórki pomarańczy. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane o średnio gęstej konsystencji. Jest kremowe i bardzo puszyste. Piwo jest dosyć słodkie o nutach słodowych podobnych do zwykłego muffina. Lekko kwaśnieje jak śmietana do tego wychodzą na wierzch nuty białego pieprzu i estrów owocowych. Gorzkość jest umiarkowana o nutach podobnych do ziela angielskiego i pestki cytryny. Posmak jest cierpki i słodki o nutach skórki cytrusowej. ODCZUCIA : kto by pomyślał, że broda głównego piwowara Johna Maiera zawiera drożdże belgijskie ? Wygląda na to, że być może robi piwa amerykańskie to pewnie pije piwa belgijskie. Mam taką teorie, że na samym końcu tej piwnej rewolucji będzie wielki powrót do belgijskich piw. No ale schodząc na ziemie to piwo jest całkiem solidnym jasnym ejlem belgijskim. świetnie skomponowane ale profil pieprzu i słodkich nut owoców nie jest moim ulubionym. Poza tym, że drożdże wyhodowali z brody to nie ma w tym piwie więcej polotu. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +1

A great beer with a twist to its creation, soft pLate but has a real kick to it at the end. Sugary with a bit of fruit, yeasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Thanks to tderoeck! Retarded concept? Check. Bizarre & inexplicable brewery? Check. Dull style that the brewery isn’t known to do well? Check. Well I am ready! Golden, little head. Light grains in the nose, touch sugar, faint citrus, touch cookie. Taste is slightly sweet, white sugar, bread, grains, faint herbs, touch citrus. Light, very dull & meh overall. I am getting nothing here.

Imagine a pilsner with a little wild yeast. Not sour, but a little tart. Not a bad beer.

Sampled @ RBBSG III. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, a touch of herbs, slightly sweet-bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Hmm it’s ok.
