Add another one to the weird Jelly Belly flavors. The company now has a draft beer-flavored jelly bean.

The jelly bean tastes like a Hefeweizen-inspired ale, according to Jelly Belly's website.

Development of the draft beer flavor took years, according to the company.

"First, we tried to work on matching the hops. Then we worked on the yeast flavor," said Ambrose Lee, Jelly Belly's research and development manager, in a video on the company's website.

Note: There is no alcohol in the jelly bean.

Jelly Belly also offers jelly bean recipes for a candy cocktail in your mouth. For example, to make a Michelada, eat two draft beer jelly beans, a lemon lime jelly bean and a Tabasco jelly bean.

Draft beer joins the list of offbeat Jelly Belly flavors. (Yes, these are actual flavors, part of the Harry Potter-themed collection.)
