Crazy Beard Wild Apple Ale – RatemyBEER?
You could almost think this is RatemyBEER, but no, not really. However, I found that a beer/ale called Crazy Beard is close enough to be reviewed and featured on Ratemybeer… I mean Ratemybeard. Just look that that can, it’s so beautiful and beardilicious, I couldn’t resist it.
Crazy Beard Wild Apple Ale is brewed in Ontario, Canada. And that’s where it’s available, in Canada. I do however believe that you can import it to your country of origin if you want. Otherwise, hop on the next bus to Canada, because this is some good stuff!
The Crazy Beard Wild Apple Ale is a, well, Ale. “Which is a type of beer brewed from malted barley using a warm fermentation with a strain of brewers’ yeast. Compared to lager yeasts, ale yeast ferments more quickly, and often produces a sweeter, fuller-bodied and fruitier taste. Most ales contain hops, which help preserve the beer and impart a bitter herbal flavour that balances the sweetness of the malt.” I admit, I copied that from Wikipedia, as I think they summed it up better then I could.
I got two cans of this sweet and apple flavored nectar of the beard gods. At first I was thinking that I should invite some friends over, we talk a bit, hang out and then we’d share the two cans of Crazy Beard with each other. They would tell me what they’d think, and I’d incorporate that in to my review, but after my curiousness took over and I popped one open I decided, hell no. I’m having this all by myself. I will try to get this imported to Sweden, because this needs to be drunk!
Imagine a very nice and well balanced apple juice, the ones you drink in the morning and go “aaaah”. Add a little kick to it, carbonate it a little and add a dash of alcohol, then you get Crazy Beard Wild Apple Ale. Well, OK, no. The brewing of this is a little bit more complex then that, but the taste is so freaking amazing and refreshing. I could drink this all the time, to every meal, after work. Yeah, you get the point. I DO HOWEVER STRESS – DRINK RESPONSIBLY – DON’T OVERDO IT!!!
It’s a dark yellow liquid and it actually look like apple juice. it smells like apple cider but it’s a little bit more bitter. It tasted fruity, it tasted crisp and refreshing and it tasted fantastic. You could easily forget that this drink has alcohol in it. If you ever get the chance to try it, do it! And i hope you love it as much as I do! The Crazy Beard Wild Apple Ale is of 5.2 alc %.
But who is Crazy Beard?
He’s the brewmaster of course, and on the back of the can you may read:
“Somewhere far north of here is said to be the worlds greatest apple orchard. Forged by the harshest elements, these apples develop a thick skin and remain as crisp as the day they are picked. Since he staked claim to the orchard, Crazy Beard has fought tooth, nail and hatchet to harvest it. He brews a special ale and hoards it fiercely. Only on the night of the harvest moon does he leave a single barrel for those brave enough to make the journey north. Most call him crazy, some call him passionate, but no one knows what lies beneath the beard…”
Respect the legal drinking age in your country!!!
