Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a little smoke, green olives in brine, aged creek water and old vegetables. Not awesome.
The taste is younger creek water, mild lemon bitterness and a watery finish.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
I would never drink this again. An idea worth enjoying as a homebrew experiment.

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 brewer's beard and the "who-knows-what" that is found within. I feel like this isn't 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 wasn't bitter at all. Viscosity was average. As I let the beer warm, it left more of a fruity aftertaste. Been there, tried that. Won't be drinking this one again unless it was the only option.
