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...

Bottle. Golden and frothy with a definitive funk, as I supposed one should only expect from such a concoction. There’s a hint of orange rind, too. (#6006, 7/19/2015)

The name of the beer along with the fact that it was made the beard yeast meant that I has to try it. This is an absolutely delicious beer! It tastes like a fine Belgian! Respect the beard!

czar (8089) - 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..

Johnstledger8 (915) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a mostly fading off white head. Aroma of plum, toffee, spice, orange, very sweet. Taste is of orange, plum, pear, brown sugar. Medium carbonation, oily, very sweet - a desert beer.

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.
