I enjoyed this on tap at Arooga's in Harrisburg PA, served chilled in a pils type glass.

The color is a brilliant golden amber with light haze and 2 finger head of white with fine bead. The smell is slightly tropical with banana-like aroma and slight wheat notes with mild sweet aspect and hint of spice in the nose. The feel is good with medium body and slightly prickly carbonation with mild sweetness and yeast tanginess with a mostly dry finish.

The flavor would best be described as if you were to experience this blind as a hefeweizen in a generic way - the flavor of the malt is there with a sort of tangy lemony wheat beer type quality with some banana notes and spice from the 'yeast' the flavor has a slight follicle effect in the finish (haha) Overall I like this for what it is a beer that is sort of a novelty but interesting and way better than I expected considering where a good portion of the flavor is deerived from

cool concept and a strange beer overall. somewhere between a Belgian tripel and a Belgian pale, I am surprised how much Belgian character has come out of the yeast in this cats beard. a slightly tart, two row and wheat based brew with some haze and a lot of carbonation. funky Belgian fruit esters from the yeast meet basic saison strain dryness. the malt has some added sugar character, more in line with the tripel style, but the sweetness is mostly fermented out. not sure where that citrusy tartness comes from, its kind of weird but I like it a lot. some lingering funk on the finish long after the swallow that I like more when its warm than when its cold, but a fun project and a very drinkable result. id like to see more of this bizarre yeast harvesting, makes some cool beer this time around.

Visually, it looks like a standard pale ale. Hazy, tinge of orange, nice head. Aroma is fruity. Not a ton of presence from the hops or malt, which is expected. Back off on those to make the star of this beer, the yeast, shine through. And actually, it doesn't taste as funky as expected. Slightly sour finish. You could easily pass this off as a Belgian Pale Ale.

Maybe famous because of the novelty, but I think it's pretty good.
