2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think my wife wanted to throw up when I had her read the label on the back about the origin of this beer. Yes, inspired by head brewerís beard and the "who-knows-what" that is found within. I feel like this isnít a serious attempt of making anything great that will be around season after season. Plus what would they do once the guy with the beard moves on or passes on?
Beer poured a medium, golden with little to no head. Aroma was musty, earthy with a bit of funk. Original sips were prickly on the lips due to medium+ carbonation. Taste reflected the aroma, on the funky side. It has a low IBU and wasnít bitter at all. Viscosity was average. As I let the beer warm, it left more of a fruity aftertaste. Been there, tried that. Wonít be drinking this one again unless it was the only option.

Drinks like a hefe. Light though. Nothing notable. Just adding more for comment length.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold body under a larger frothy white head that grew rather large from all the carbonation. The nose is light and delicate with some light Belgian yeast, floral hops, pale malt, and a bit of fruitiness. The flavor is pretty light and rather bland, some minimal floral hops, little to no bitterness, doughy pale malt, and a slight fruitiness on the finish. Light bodied and soft fizzy carbonation, this comes off as a bit thin overall. Pretty boring stuff, pass on this one if youíre thinking about it.

"iím not grossed out by this (hell, i love weasel shit beer) but that stuff has a point. this is a gimmick, and just a gimmick. Canít say it was bad, but nothing special. Smells like a slightly wild belgian ale, bubble gum and spices. Yeast dominates. Slight sweet flavor. Thin body. Had a sample, and that was good enough :)"

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Clear golden with good off-white head. Reasonable aroma, very pils like with grassy, slightly grainy, slightly metallic hops. Light body, well carbonated. Tastes good - thereís quite a sweet base to the flavour - light biscuity malt with some honey notes. Overlaid on that is the hops which give some pleasant balance and a rather harsh finish. I detect some banana esters perhaps suggesting wild yeast. Thereís some peppery spice in there too. Overall itís very drinkable, especially for a novelty beer.

Bottle. Golden in color with a small white head. Earthy, leather, herbs and green leafs in aroma. Lemon and mild stable too. Fruity citrus, mild grassyness and notes of spicy yeastyness in taste. Subtle funky and almost sour notes in finish. A bit thin, but decent though.
