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 beard beer taste like? try it, we think you’ll be surprised...

Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
A lightly hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light oxidation, treacle, light mineral notes and faint hops. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light treacle, grassy resinous hops, fruity esters, nice. Bottle at OttBottShare April 2016.

djd07 (15544) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a cloudy orange with large frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong wheat, fruity malt and spice. Medium mouth, belgian yeast, fruity malt, light finish, decent.

22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Yeast, breadiness, citrus, and a lighter eartiness.

fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Draft from Prison Hill Brewing in Yuma. All the necessary stuff for this to qualify as a Belgian Ale. Just not enough of it to make it spectacular. Better than some of the stuff I had tonight.

3.6
M_Sack (773) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Birthday present - thanks Baz. Aromas of bananas, bubblegum, bread, nectarines and coriander. Smooth mouthfeel with fruity, tangy yeast dominating the flavour profile, along with sweet candy and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours straw, malty straw aromas, flatish straw flavours, mildly sweet. Cool beard, boring beer.

JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow orange, with a white head. Yeasty, fruity, biscuit, and malty. Not super interesting, but drinkable.

mike5326 (1782) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Poured from a tap. Hazy copper color, huge frothy white head. Medium clove aroma. Medium body, lacks complexity, distinct wheat and clove flavor with a clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Actually quite disappointed, while I appreciate the beard yeasts as a unique feature of this beer, it’s actually really, really plain, nothing amazing here. Won’t be buying again, cool thought though. But to me its a plain ale.

This beer was good it had a very predominant yeast flavor profile, it was much to be expected with this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
